Hi guys, I am trying to sell my PE Exam materials after passing the Civil PE (Transportation) exam recently. These books are still in great condition, if not like new, with very minimal to no notes or highlights on them. I did my research on prices, so these should be the best prices you can find from eBay or Amazon. Good luck! Here is the list and a link to my eBay listings: ***FREE SHIPPING IN THE US FOR ALL BOOKS*** 2011 AASHTO GREEN BOOK: A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets - $219 https://www.ebay.com/itm/173708321984 Highway Capacity Manual 2010 (HCM 2010) - $139 https://www.ebay.com/itm/173708311139 Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam by Michael R.

I have posted this before, but I think I am getting more serious about taking the Civil PE so I can become licensed in CA. By degree I am a Mechanical Engineer (BSME) but my experience from graduation (2006) has been structural. I took and passed the 16-hour structural exam in 2012. Now I want to take the civil exam so I can get those states that will not license me by reciprocity (i.e. CA). So now I have some questions that hopefully the community will be kind of enough to send me in the right direction. I plan to take the civil with structures depth. I work with wood, HRS, CFS, and concrete regularly in my business in the modular world which is why I collect multiple state licenses. Since I am a mechanical engineer by degree, I don't have any experience in civil but on the other hand, "all" I have to do is pass the AM breadth portion. Is the CERM the only reference material needed for the AM section? I do plan on getting some practice AM exams and "try my luck" by taking the exam once before I decide if I need a review course (physical or online). Again, reading through some of the threads on here, it sound like the AM section isn't "too difficult" if you are able to find the equations you need in the CERM. I assume the pm depth structures won't be a problem unless they still throw in some other subjects. I don't want to sound conceited, but I'm really expecting the pm section to be easy compared to the SE exam. Maybe someone with experience with both exams can let me know? Is there a list of reference materials to bring for the pm section? I'm in northern Indiana and IN won't let me sit for another exam. They say they don't have the resources to keep records of multiple exams for people. So, I need to take this exam out-of-state. Does anyone have any experience taking an exam out-of-state in a state that surrounds IN? Am I being too nonchalant by relying on my unfounded comparison with the SE exam? Again, anyone who has taken both can let me know. Thanks -jfluckey
Just wanted to point out that in the 12th edition of the Lindeburg Civil PE Manual, I found that one of the exponents in the Hazen-Williams equation for head loss through a pipe was wrong. For those keeping score at home, the C^1.185 in the denominator should be C^1.85. Incidentally, I checked a coworker's 11th Edition, and the Hazen-Williams equation was correct. What reference materials did everyone use, and which did you like/not like?
