Of all the PE exams, more people take the civil than any other discipline. The eight-hour, open-book, multiple-choice exam is given every April and October. The exam format is breadth-and-depth -- all examinees are tested on the breadth of civil engineering in the morning session; in the afternoon, they select one of five specialties to be tested on in-depth. Our civil PE books are current with the exam; they reflect the new format, and they reference all the same codes used on the exam.Quick Reference, which facilitates finding formulas during the exam; and subject-specific reviews on the complex areas of bridge and timber design.
-- Organizes all important formulas for fast access during the exam
-- Corresponds to topics in the Civil Engineering Reference Manual, 8th ed.

About the author (2002)

Young engineers who want to be licensed in their particular field rely on the test-taking tips in books by Michael R. Lindeburg, PE. He has written over 35 books on engineering, many of them specifically on exam preparation. Lindeburg, the acknowledged authority on exam taking manuals for engineering, has written three definitive books for this purpose. "Engineer-In Training Reference Manual" (3rd ed., 1996) has been the leading resource for over 250,000 engineers preparing for the FE/EIT exam. For over 20 years this book has been praised for its clear comprehensive coverage and excellent index. "Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual For The PE Exam" (10th ed., 1997) discusses all exam subjects with 342 reinforcing practice problems and illustrations, tables, figures and formulas. EIT Review manual: "Rapid Preparation For The General Fundamentals of Engineering Exam: Current For The 1998-1999 Exam"(1998) outsells all other similar works combined and contains a money back guarantee. If readers do not pass the exam after using this cram course manual with 900 practice problems and a complete eight-hour practice exam, the publisher will refund their money. Lindeburg's other books include "Getting Started As A Consulting Engineer"(1994), "Fire And Explosion Protection Systems: A Design Professionals Introduction" (1995), and "1001 Solved Engineering Fundamentals Problems" (1997). Michael R. Lindenburg graduated from Stanford University with B.S and M.S. degrees in industrial engineering. As founder and president of the Professional Engineering Institute, he has taught and supervised hundreds of engineering review courses.
