    Water Resources and Environmental Depth Reference Manual for the Civil PE Exam, Print (CEWE) (Paperback)

    To pass the Civil PE exam’s water resources and environmental depth section, you’ll need to be familiar with the exam topics and how to use relevant equations. The Water Resources and Environmental Depth Reference Manual for the Civil PE Exam provides comprehensive coverage of the exam topics. Detailed tables, figures, and appendices make it possible to solve many exam problems using the Depth Reference Manual alone. Example problems demonstrate how concepts are applied, and end-of-chapter problems provide opportunity for independent practice.

    Good problems, bad as a reference Review by Andrea
    There are mistakes in the book (equations, etc) and PPI has not been able to provide an update sheet, which makes me weary to use it as a reference. However, the problems are good for practice and much easier than other books. (Posted on 2/22/2015)

    Reference manual Review by Rachel
    The manual is full of useful information but does not correlate well with the problems in the six minute solution book. Alot of the formulas used in the six minute solutions book are not covered in the depth manual. (Posted on 2/20/2015)

    A good book but with some errors Review by Ken
    This review book is a well organized exam preparation material. Examples are very close to the degree of difficulty in the PE exam. I even found an example with maximum pump elevation location problem very similar to a problem in my PE exam. The formulas are organized in a clear pattern and easy to follow. But there are some errors in the books of which some are critical. For example, the hydraulic jump equation is wrong. And in the practice problems, several answers are wrong. Users could be misled or confused by those errors. I went through each page of this book and picked more that a dozens of errors. Otherwise, it should be a good review book. (Posted on 11/9/2011)
