PPI PE Civil Practice Problems, 16th Edition – Comprehensive Practice for the NCEES PE Civil Exam

Published by PPI a Kaplan Company

LIST PRICE $168.00

PE Civil Practice Problems contains over 900 problems designed to reinforce your knowledge of the topics presented in the PE Civil Reference Manual. Short, six-minute, multiple-choice problems follow the NCEES PE Civil exam problem format and focus on individual engineering concepts. Longer, more complex problems challenge your skills in identifying and applying related engineering concepts. Problems will also familiarize you with the codes and standards you’ll use on the exam.

Solutions are clearly written, complete, and easy to follow. U.S. customary and SI units are equally supported, and units are meticulously identified and carried through in all calculations. All solution methodologies permitted by the NCEES PE Civil exam (e.g., ASD and LRFD) are presented. Frequent references to figures, tables, equations, and appendices in the PE Civil Reference Manual and the exam-adopted codes and standards will direct you to relevant support material.
