    Surprisingly useful Review by Benjamin
    I purchased this manual on the advise of a friend. As I work in the construction field, my assumption was that I would not use it and would probably return it after the exam. During the exam I used it to answer 6 questions. The manual gave me confidence in my answers to several more.
    Although the manual is fairly extensive it cannot incorporate all the aspects of the references it is summarizing. I found the OSHA questions on the exam to be outside the scope of the manual. It would also be useful to have a glossary of some financial, survey, and other "construction" terms that are put into the exam to confuse the questions. (Posted on 6/6/2016)

    This ref. guide has been helpful. After reading the chapter in the Civil PE review book, this gives the highlights that will most likey be used for the exam. It's also nice to have the two references side by side for equations and tables so you don't have to flip between pages in one or the other. (Posted on 7/9/2015)
