Civil Engineering PE

The third edition of the Civil Engineering PE All-in-One Exam Guide comes out approximately 3years after the August 2012 release of the second edition. This new edition appears in concert with asignificant realignment (April 2015) of the PE Civil exam syllabus by NCEES, along with theexpected updates of the codes and standards. The third edition has been revised for the followingcodes referenced in the new syllabus:
• Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), 2010
• A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets (AASHTO Green Book), 6th edition,
• Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), 2009
• Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE 7), 2010
• Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide, AASHTO, 2008
• Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318), 2011
• Steel Construction Manual, 14th edition, AISC, 2011
• AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, 6th edition, 2012
• PCI Design Handbook: Precast and Prestressed Concrete, 7th edition, 2010
In the third edition, two entirely new chapters have been added. First, Chap. 116 has been addedto provide coverage of the guidelines of ASCE 7, the premier reference for determining design loadson building structures, particularly for those preparing for the structural depth exam. It provides a summary of the snow, wind, and seismic provisions of ASCE 7. Second, elements of quantity estimating were scattered in various parts of the chapters on construction. In the third edition, a separate chapter (Chap. 510) has been dedicated to reviewing material and examples on this topic. In making these additions, the size of the book has expanded by about 150 pages. As I wrote in the preface to the second edition, a 1200-page book such as this one can only serve as a guide for a field as vast as civil engineering—it can never be a complete reference. I have tried to strike a balance between an instructional aid and a handy exam reference. However, I have no qualms in admitting that the book may well have given “too much attention” to one area and not enough to another. Overall, I have tried to keep a certain flow to the narrative so that it will be easy enough to read and at the same time be comprehensive enough to serve as an exam reference. One would hope that a candidate would supplement this book with other sources, as deemed appropriate by the official (NCEES) syllabus of the PE exam. I would recommend that readers create
a “map” from the current NCEES syllabus to specific pages in this book, thereby familiarizing
themselves with both
