    Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam: A Companion to the Civil Engineering Reference Manual (CEPP15), 15th Edition

    New Edition. Comprehensive Practice for the Civil PE Exam

    Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam contains over 900 problems designed to reinforce your knowledge of the topics presented in the Civil Engineering Reference Manual. Short, six-minute, multiple-choice problems follow the NCEES Civil PE exam problem format and focus on individual engineering concepts. Longer, more complex problems challenge your skills in identifying and applying related engineering concepts. Problems will also familiarize you with the codes and standards you’ll use on the exam.

    Solutions are clearly written, complete, and easy to follow. U.S. customary and SI units are equally supported, and units are meticulously identified and carried through in all calculations. All solution methodologies permitted by the NCEES Civil PE exam (e.g., ASD and LRFD) are presented. Frequent references to figures, tables, equations, and appendices in the Civil Engineering Reference Manual and the exam-adopted codes and standards will direct you to relevant support material.

    The NCEES recently adopted the 2014 edition of the ACI 318 code for the 2016 exams.  This adoption occurred post-publication of Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam, 15th edition by Michael R. Lindeburg, PE.  For your reference and convenience, we have included a PDF that cross references the 2011 ACI 318 and the 2014 ACI 2014.
