There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. If you're reading these reviews undoubtedly you know what this is and why you need this for the Civil PE exam. That said, as far as I can tell this is pretty much the only comprehensive reference available for the exam so rather than talk more about the CERM itself I wanted to break down some things that helped me use the manual to study and pass the PE exam the first time: Saves lots of time and aggravation working from multiple places in the CERM.

I learned this from people in my review class and never would've thought of this on my own which is why I wanted to share it here. Highlight the equations to make them pop from the columns of text in the book. This did a few things for me: I did this the month before my review class started, helped me find what's in the manual too before I got into the heavy duty working of problems during my review class for hours on end.

I used a combination of heavy duty tabs with paper inserts and the sticky flags.


I color coded the tabs by topic and tabbed my manual as follows: I left all my tabs and flags in the CERM after finding out I passed since it makes the book look real salty and reminds me of the pain I went through studying and taking the exam. Bottom line here: Know what's in the book and where to find it. I know this sounds obvious but I first attempted studying with stacks of textbooks from engineering school in addition to my CERM and quickly realized it would never work.

You need to become as familiar as possible with the CERM if you want a ghost of a chance of passing, and you'll be amazed what's in there if you look.

Also, you will not have time to flip around between 20 books during the exam so just get used to using the CERM as much as possible while studying. Heck, sleep with your CERM if you have to and take it with you to lunch. For the exam, I only brought in my trusty marked up and tabbed CERM, my open channel hydraulics book, and my undergrad geotech book along with my notes and sample problems from my review class.

I was fortunate to find one an hour away on Saturdays. It helped me get into the mode of studying a lot I kept records and including 56 hours of class I spent about hours preparing for the exam over about 3. The review was kinda costly but I figure I got off cheap passing the PE the first time.

Hardcover Verified Purchase. This manual served as my primary resource for the April PE Exam, which I passed on the first try. The test will indeed require additional sources hydraulic design, hydrology, water and wastewater, soils, and concrete design for me , but the manual is still pretty comprehensive.

As I worked through the manual, I tabbed important pages and highlighted key equations. The test through its fair share of curve balls, but I was prepared. I was even able to answer several questions by using the index. My advice is to buy this book I am keeping mine as a reference forever , work out a loose study schedule based on the number of weeks you have, work as many problems as you can, write out outlines of concepts that you have studied, and take practice exams if you have access.

I also recommend YouTube. Civil Engineering Academy was a great supplement to my studying. Good luck to everyone! Stop wasting time and get this book before you study. It is what you will use on the PE test.

You need to be familiar with it and tab the important sections. It is very well organized and the index is priceless. I'd recommend getting the index in a separate 3-ring binder. As a water-resources depth taker, I probably did NOT need the latest version. The math is the same and there are no real "codes" to update for that section.

I used this book exclusively, with additional review course notes, and one wastewater book from college. I am currently studying for the PE structural depth might update after I take the exam , and am also taking a dedicated PE course EET webinar, in case anyone was interested.

Before I get super critical of this book, its worth mentioning that there does not exist a better alternative that I know of maybe I should write one. The book is expensive, but given the relatively low demand for such material, I can understand the cost.

Also, I will probably keep it after I finish the exam, rather than resell it, but I haven't decided yet. With that being said, I do not like the book as a whole and I think it can be done better. The book is not a sufficient reference for the PE exam. It is doesn't even get close to being a reference for the depth, and neither does the "SE reference manual" that Lindbergh sells for the structural depth.

Editions of Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam by Michael R. Lindeburg

Lindbergh gets on a soapbox at the beginning of this book about how this book has MORE information than you need to pass the exam, and how he doesn't think the PE doesn't sufficiently cover all the information an engineer should know to be a practicing engineer.

I whole-heartily agree with him on that point, but his book fails to deliver. This book, while it covers all the topics that will appear on the exam, often fails to provide necessary equations or logical steps needed to solve such problems. Some necessary information is just plain missing. Lindbergh provides too much information where its not needed, and not enough information where it is needed.

For example, in the hydrology section I'm using hydrology as an example because I'm currently re-reviewing that material , you tell us about the different methods for estimating average rainfall, but don't give the equations or logical steps to solve using these methods. Also in hydrology, In soils, you don't adequately describe the soil testing procedures i. Your soil phase relationship equations i. Summary of equations at the beginning of each section. Quit milking us for money by selling a separate and poorly reviewed equation book.

Just include this at the beginning of every section. Format the book to better fit the format of the exam. Environment Engineering isn't even part of the NCEES breadth, so why would the reference manual cover it and all related topics such as chemistry? Again, certain topics need to be expanded upon while others need to be cut or or at least made more brief. So for those reading, you will definitely need a course to pass the PE.

You should not rely on Lindbergh's book as your sole PE reference for the breadth. See all reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? See the exam schedule for specific dates. Special accommodations are available for examinees who meet certain eligibility criteria and sufficiently document their request.

The PE Civil exam is a breadth and depth examination. This means that examinees work the breadth section in the morning and one of the five depth modules in the afternoon. The breadth section contains questions from all five areas of civil engineering. The depth section focuses more closely on a single area of practice.
