We thought since most of you October Civil PE-Exam candidates are likely cramming for the upcoming exam we at PE-Exam.com would like to offer free shipping on our Breadth Practice Exam for the Civil PE. The Practice Exam is intended to be a realistic replica of the 40 question morning-section of the Civil PE exam. The total cost shipped to your door is $20.

Best of Luck!

That's a good price. At this point in time, you might want to not just mention the cost of the shipping but the speed of the shipping. ;)

We ship priority mail so it usually ships in 3 business days but it may take up to 5.

Hello Walker,

Are you going to provide an Errata for the mistakes in some of the problems?

Why? What would be the benefit? Cheaper? You'd have to print it out anyway. And $20 is a good price, especially for a mailed hard copy. Faster? I suppose. But you also could have ordered it weeks/months ago. ;)

Unfortunately, illegal distribution would be too easy via .pdf.

Walker, check the solution on problem 40. When you're solving for B one of the terms has to be Bsqure and the other Bcubic.

Also prob 39. total stress at "A" should be QA=1703+2.1(120)=1955 instead of 2,470.

I believe I found a mistake on #10. I thought the C for a cast iron pipe should be 100 which is the design value and you are using 130 which is the clean value.

Going through this book, I really can't recommend it. Just a ton of mistakes. I know things slip but its like the person created it one night and started selling it the next day without anyone even proofreading the problems.
