    Concrete Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams, 2nd Edition (CSCO2P)

    Concrete Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams presents the concrete design and analysis methods most needed by civil and structural engineering students.The book’s 12 chapters provide a concise but thorough review of concrete theory, code application, design principles, and structural analysis. The 51 example problems demonstrate how to apply concepts, codes, and equations, and over 40 figures and tables provide essential support material. A complete nomenclature list defines the industry-standard variables and symbols used in each chapter.


    This book includes code references to familiarize you with exam-adopted codes, such as ASCE7 and ACI 318. It also includes 35 multiple-choice problems and 2 scenario-based design problems to enhance your problem-solving skills. Each problem’s complete solution lets you check your solving approach. On exam day, you can use this book’s thorough index to quickly locate important codes and concepts.
     



    The NCEES recently adopted the 2014 edition of the ACI 318 code for the 2016 Civil PE exams.  This adoption occurred post-publication of Concrete Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams.  For your reference and convenience, we have included a PDF that cross references the 2011 ACI 318 and the 2014 ACI 2014. You may access the PDF by clicking here.  PPI is committed to supporting you in your efforts towards licensure, and providing the highest-quality content for your preparation.

    Great book but watch for errors Review by Eric
    Overall
    I found this book useful for both studying for the SE exam and during my regular practice. It is very concise and laid out nicely. I would advise keeping a copy of the ACI code and the PCA handbook handy to reference all the equations and code related statements. I found there were so many errors I had to double check everything I read. The editing could definitely use some improvement.

    Clearly written and good examples/practice problems Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Overall
    Very clearly written review guide with ample examples and some practice problems. This is not comprehensive and does not replace a course on concrete design or a proper design handbook, but it should be enough to make sure you are familiar with the basics needed for the PE exam or to review basic principles or terminology. It is a nice reference for basic problems. (Posted on 2/12/2015)

    Comprehensive, but also easy to read, follow along, and gives basic and advanced understanding of concrete design. Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Overall
    This is a great workbook, well laid out, with 51 example problems, and over 40 figures and tables to help prepare for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exam. In a former life I wanted to be a structural engineer, so this book was review for me. I have mad respect for engineers, and anyone picking up this book will too. There's math folks, advanced math! Solutions are worked out with a clear understanding. What I like best about this book is it's very thorough and well written. Aside from including Nomenclature -- what the symbols mean and their definition, and an index, each chapter starts with a clear overview of a part about concrete design. For example... chapter 1 covers Materials, and the author takes a couple pages to break down the basics of concrete and how it is formed, consistency needed, admixtures, aggregates, etc. The beginning of each chapter is a very good read, and the author writes so that even the novice engineer can understand it. It's very captivating to understand the principles of concrete design. (Posted on 2/12/2015)
