ABOUT THE PE EXAM

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
