The Most Realistic Practice for the Civil PE Exam

Civil PE Practice Examination contains six 40-problem, multiple-choice exams consistent with the NCEES Civil PE exam’s format and specifications. The morning breadth exam covers a variety of civil engineering topics. The five afternoon depth exams (construction; geotechnical; structural; transportation; and water resources and environmental) prepare you for the depth exam of your choice and provide additional practice for the morning exam subjects.
Consistent with the actual exam, the problems in Civil PE Practice Examination require an average of six minutes to solve. Enhance your time-management skills by taking each exam within the same four-hour time limit as the actual exam. Then, evaluate your performance using the six individual answer keys. Comprehensive step-by-step solutions demonstrate accurate and efficient problem-solving approaches. Solutions also reference exam-adopted codes and standards, so you can learn where to find required information and how to efficiently use your resources.
Civil PE Practice Examination will help you to

  • familiarize yourself with the exam topics and format
  • identify accurate and efficient problem-solving approaches
  • connect relevant theory to exam-like problems
  • navigate through exam-adopted codes and standards
  • solve problems under timed conditions

Read an Excerpt


Civil PE Practice Examination provides the opportunity to practice taking an eight-hour test similar in content and format to the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) examination in civil engineering. The civil PE examination is an eight-hour exam divided into a morning session and an afternoon session. The morning session is known as the ‘‘breadth’’ exam, and the afternoon session is known as the ‘‘depth’’ exam. This book contains a sample breadth module and five sample depth modules— one for each subdiscipline tested by NCEES. In the four-hour morning session, the examinee is asked to solve 40 problems from eight knowledge areas: project planning, means and methods, soil mechanics, structural mechanics, hydraulics and hydrology, geometrics, materials, and site development. Morning session problems are general in nature and wide-ranging in scope.
