Quick Reference for the Civil Engineering PE Exam / Edition 6

Paperback (Print)

Overview

Save Time on the Exam by Quickly Locating Equations, Figures, and Tables

Time is of the essence on the Civil PE exam, and the Quick Reference for the Civil Engineering PE Exam minimizes your problem-solving time by putting the information you need most at your fingertips.

This powerful, time-saving tool consolidates the most useful equations, figures, and tables from the Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam into one place, without the distraction of descriptive text. Many exam problems can be solved using the Quick Reference alone or in conjunction with NCEES-adopted codes and standards. As the Quick Reference corresponds with the twelfth edition of the Reference Manual, it reflects the exam’s reliance on NCEES-adopted codes and standards. Both are also fully indexed and use the same equation, table, and figure numbers, so you can find explanations of concepts quickly and easily.
