Read an Excerpt


This book is a collection of problems categorized by exam subject. Just as a fish is born knowing how to swim, you probably feel that you already know how to use this book. Actually, there are several ways to use it, and some of them are even pretty good. Only one way, however, will maximize the return on your investment in time.

At one end of the effort spectrum are people who will work through the book from beginning to end, studying every detail, duplicating every calculation, and making sure that they know the underlying subject. At the other end of the effort spectrum are people who will simply take the book into the exam with them hoping to find a similar problem whose solution they can copy.

Some will study using this book alone. Others will use this book in conjunction with the Civil Engineering Reference Manual. Some will go through this book from beginning to end, using it as a secondary review. Others will go in and out of it, alternating their time between this book and others.

Admittedly, when I wrote the book, I had a vision of how it would be used. I was pretty certain that most people would study a chapter from the Civil Engineering Reference Manual, solve all the homework problems in the companion book Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam, and then turn to this book for addditional exposure to exam-level problems. Then they would return to their Reference Manual to study the next chapter.
