Improve Your Problem-Solving Skills and Build Your Confidence

The best way to prepare for the Civil PE exam is to solve problems—the more problems, the better. Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam provides the problem-solving practice and confidence you need to succeed on exam day.

The 756 practice problems cover all the topics, codes, and standards on the NCEES Civil PE exam specifications. Most problems are in the same multiple-choice format as the exam. Scenario-based problems offer a higher level of complexity and allow you to review each subject in context. Short answer problems provide conceptual and qualitative subject coverage. After solving each problem, you can refer to the corresponding step-by-step explanation that demonstrates how to reach the correct solution most efficiently. The chapters correspond to those in the Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam, so you can easily find explanations of unfamiliar engineering concepts as you solve problems.
