Overview

Time is of the essence on the civil PE exam, and Quick Reference for the Civil Engineering PE Exam helps you best utilize each minute by putting the information you need the most at your fingertips.

Using an exam-friendly format, Quick Reference logically organizes all the formulas and data from the Civil Engineering Reference Manual that are likely to be used during the exam. Bonus tables, figures, and equations not found in the Reference Manual have also been included. Many exam problems can be solved with the Quick Reference alone. If you do require more information, you can quickly refer to the Reference Manual as formulas and data are fully indexed for rapid retrieval.

Quick Reference has been updated to the 11th edition of the Civil Engineering Reference Manual, which includes new construction engineering coverage and extensively revised structural and transportation topics that conform to current NCEES design standards.

Quick Reference saves you precious time during the exam by Putting the data you need the most at your fingertips, Isolating the most useful equations and formulas in the Reference Manual, Allowing you to quickly retrieve formulas without the distraction of surrounding text, Cross-referencing additional information in the Reference Manual. Quick Reference for the Civil Engineering PE Exam and other companion books are part of PPI's best-selling exam review series used by more than 1 million engineers to prepare for their licensing exams.
