I will take structural depth PE exam in April and would like to know if I need the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) for the AM exam transportation part.
Thanks!

I suggest you download and stick to the NCEES syllabus. You'll see that the HCM is not listed as a Structural depth reference. You'll also see that the 20% of the AM exam which is Transpo is primarily geometric design. Your CERM is sufficient for this. Good luck.

You don't need HCM. Like ptatohed said, CERM is more than enough for you.
