The Civil Engineering Reference Manual provides a comprehensive review of all five NCEES Civil PE exam content areas: construction, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources and environmental engineering.

Over 500 example problems not only demonstrate how to apply important concepts and equations, they also include step-by-step solutions that show you the most efficient methods to use when solving exam problems.

With more than 100 appendices from references and exam-adopted design standards it's possible to solve many exam problems using only the Civil Engineering Reference Manual.

The book is FULL of good info, but one draw back might be it has a little too much info. This is a great refference manual and good to have for the PE test day. Read full review

Review: Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam

User Review  - Scott schluter - Goodreads

Very tough book to get through. Not a very clear author. After the PE I see little chance I will refer to this book, there are far better resources that are much clearer and easier to understand. Read full review
