I am getting stuck in this part of my studies. I am not sure how to differentiate between what questions they might ask in the AM about soil consolidation and foundation settlement. Will they just mix these two up? or will the foundation settlement not require to calculate soil consolidation within the settlement calculations. The NCEES practice exam just highlights consolidation as a quantity problem and settlement as a conceptual question. There is little information on the CERM about how to differentiate between these two as well just compression and recompression idexes and over consolidation index with the consolidation equations. Also are there any good reference for immediate settlement and secondary compression settlement? I am stuck in studying these.

I took and passed the exam in April, Civil Breadth, Transportation Depth As I recall, I utilized the following to get ready for the morning section: CERM 12 & CERM 13 I utilized Michael Lindburg’s Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam as my main resource. There were some major source changes between 12 and 13 but I found that most instances where I was referencing a table to gather a number were from my more specialized source books. I believe the only additional section to the CERM 13 was a part about Painting Highway Bridges—so if you’re not taking the Transportation depth section of the PE exam, I wouldn’t worry about it. I started studying with the CERM 12, which I purchased in Fall 2012—when I had good intentions to study all winter. I did study on and off, but ended up taking a review course in which the CERM 13 was included as a course material. I found this to be an excellent reference and am happy to have it in my professional library. Online, you can print a copy of the index—not having to flip through a 4” thick book saves more time than you can imagine. Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam: A Companion to the Civil Engineering Reference Manual (CEPP13) PE Civil: Transportation Sample Questions and Solutions (NCEES) Quick Reference for the Civil Engineering PE Exam (CEQR7) Civil PE Sample Examination (CE SX4) I reviewed the rest of them here: http://www.raggerreviews.com/pe-exam/pe-exam-prep/
