Book Description

July 1999 Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the Pe Exam
The new, completely revised seventh edition of the Civil Engineering Reference Manual is the most comprehensive resource available to engineers preparing for the new breadth-and-depth civil PE exam. Every exam subject is reviewed clearly and succinctly. Hundreds of tables, charts, and other data are included, reducing the number of other references you'll need. Almost 500 example problems reinforce what you've reviewed, and 440 exam-level practice problems give you plenty of experience with problem-solving. Both US and SI (metric) units are used. Comprehensive indexes for both subjects and data let you retrieve specific information rapidly. This new edition will not only help you prepare successfully for the PE exam but also serve you well as a desk reference when you receive your license.

For solutions to the practice problems in this manual, order Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam (ISBN 1-888577-41-X). Both these books are part of Professional Publications's Engineering Review Series, used by over 600,000 engineers to pass their licensing exams.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars for missing critical elements... Jan. 29 2001
By N. Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This IS a good book, in many ways, but I found two seperate instances (cases) when specific and necessary equations were NOT anywhere in the book, and I hadn't brought a reference to the test which contained what I needed. These two cases were in geotech and in hydrology. I like the book, on the whole, and I studied from it almost exclusively (MISTAKE!). Yes, the choice to study from it mostly exclusively, using only a few other references was *my* choice, but I really do suggest that users of this book consider carefully before doing the same.
The problem is that it's so large a book that you really do need to use it for a LOT of time before really knowing where to find all the references you might need within it, but by the time you've done this, you discover that you are still going to have to get equally familiar with several other very large references. Basically, just get all your references NOW, and use them all together so you have time to make them a composite study/reference tool.
For environmental, I recommend the Civil Handbook, or the water and solid waste books by Tchobanoglous, et al. Also, if you're doing the environmental depth, find a good chemistry reference to review, because Lindburg DOESN'T CUT IT! Neither for Transportation, tho he sort of says that up front, and we all know you need the HCM and green book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enought to pass the test Nov. 19 1999
By Charles Marohn (cmarohn@uslink.net) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I haven't received my test results back but I can say that I was disappointed with the preparation this book provided. I diligently following the study methods outlined in the book giving myself over 12 weeks to work all the problems and prepare for the test. The test was two or three degrees more difficult than this book and the practice exam seemed to indicate.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one you need Nov. 10 2000
By Marcel Dulay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As you can read from other reviews, this book is the one reference that is used most during the PE exam (very true). The subjects are well organized with many example problems; however, I did catch some errors. The book is very much geared towards the test and I found even the most obscure items somehow referenced in the text. If you plan on doing extensive study I recommend buying the solutions manual to the sample problems as a study guide to help work through the civil engineering disciplines that you do not practice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended Nov. 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I used the sixth edition of this book to study for the PE exam. It was my main study guide, and I was pleased with the scope of the material in the book. At least with the topics I did attempt on the exam (traffic/survey, hydrology, open channels), most if not all the material was covered in the book. Using this book as a resource will help you pass the exam. You will definitely also need to purchase the solutions book as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book gets the job done, the first time Sept. 14 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I just received my civil PE license, after taking the exam once, thanks in large part to Michael Lindeburg and this book. Not only did CERM have just about everything I needed to study for and then take the exam, but Mr. Lindeburg also provides personal help with questions about how problems are solved, possible errata, etc. It's rare to find this kind of commitment from an author. I highly recommend CERM and the sample exam to all civil PE candidates. (I'm going to keep it as a desk reference now that I've passed--it's that useful.)
