    Best $150 I Ever Spent Review by Passed PE Test
    Overall
    I passed the test thanks to this depth review manual. The organization of the book was exceptional and made it easier to study as it was structured well. This is a must have book to study for the transportation PE test. I read all the chapters. There are some minor negatives. I couldn't find the RV equivalency factor table for a specific grade during one test question, so I used the HCM to get it. There are RV equivalency tables but I couldn't find the one I needed for a specific grade. But maybe I didn't search well enough. I would check that. You will not be disappointed buying this book.

    Great Prep Book for CE Civil Transportation Depth exam Review by Amazon customer
    Overall
    This book provides in-depth coverage of the exam subject matter for the Transportation section of the PE Civil Exam that you take in the afternoon session. It meets the NCEES' Transportation Depth Exam Specifications and covers the 11 design standards used in the exam. It essentially combines the 11 titles into one comprehensive reference manual.

    The book is well written and well structured. It provides a thorough review of the exam topics and equations, which appear to be up to date with the latest exam specifications. In addition, it contains example problems that show you how to apply the concepts and equations to solve the typical problems found in the exam. It also contains practice problems at the end of each chapter that you can practice and check with the provided solutions.

    Another great feature of this book is the index, which is thorough and useful in that it allows you to find the relevant concepts and equations quickly and easily.

    The book is designed to be used in conjunction with the PE Civil Reference Manual, which provides in-depth coverage for the breadth section of the PE Civil exam that you take in the morning session. If you are preparing the Transportation Depth exam, this is the book you need. I would also recommend the companion books Transportation Depth Practice Exams for the Civil PE Exam and the Transportation Depth Six-Minute Problems for the PE Civil Exam. (Posted on 11/10/2017)

    Excellent Study Guide Review by Amazon Customer
    Overall
    I think is is a more than adequate reference material if you are preparing to take a Civil PE exam. There is no one magic study guide for an exam, so I would not consider this a replacement for any and all other CEES-listed reference material.

    That said, the book is comparatively inexpensive, if you want to forgo spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on individual texts. It is also thorough in what it attempts to do, which is prepare one for the exam. It covers the following exam topics:
    • Mechanisistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide
    • Guide for the Planning, Design, and Operation of Pedestrian Facilities
    • FHWA HDS5.
    • A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets (GDHS)
    • Guide for Design of Pavement Structures (GDPS)
    • Roadside Design Guide (RDG)
    • The Asphalt Handbook
    • Hydraulic Design of Highway Culverts
    • Highway Capacity Manual
    • Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices
    • Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures
    • HCM
    • Geometric Design
    • Traffic Safety
    • Transportation Construction

    The book index is very concise and allows you to easily navigate to close to 300 equations, as well as numerous tables, figures and appendices, which are contained in its 350 pages. The Table of contents breaks everything down into 6 topics:
    Transportation Planning
    Traffic & Capacity Analysis
    Pedestrian & Mass Transit Analysis
    Geometric Design
    Transportation Construction
    Traffic Safety

    There is a 7th "topic" in the TOC, which is Support Material (i.e., the appendices).

    The book is up-to-date and covers new codes as well as updates to existing code (as of this review, September 2017)

    The sample questions are pretty detailed and emulate the exam flow. For example, there is a question on Traffic & capacity Analysis related to possible development and improvement of a 6 lane arterial in a city's business district. The question tells you there is a speed study performed and provides details and test run data. You are then asked 3 questions related to the average running speed of the initial runs, average range in running speed, and how many additional runs are required to achieve a 95% confidence level.

    There are 48 sample problems to teach you the concepts you will need to solve exam questions. There are 25 end-of-chapter problems to allow for plenty of practice.

    There are some fairly difficult questions, which is good as you want to be prepared for the exam. The text absolutely goes a long way toward explaining the topics covered though, so if you use this guide you will absolutely help yourself in preparation of the exam.

    I did not find any errors in the book, and although it is a lot to take in, it is well formatted, detailed and easy to follow.

    It is not inexpensive. Again, less than buying multiple reference guides, but still pricey. The only reason I rate it at 4 stars is the price, and the fact that they offer an electronic copy for less than 1/3 of the cost of the hard copy, BUT it appears you have to own the hard copy to buy the e-copy.
