Hi - I am getting started studying for the PE Civil Structural exam. I am mainly focused on the morning portion for now as there are a number of topics I have not looked at since college which for me in 10 years ago. I recently passed the SE so I am less worried about the afternoon for now as I have studied a lot of that stuff recently. Previous exam takers have told me to use the Lindeburg PE Civil Reference Manual by PPI as a good study guide. I also have their practice problems book. Now the exam is computer based and closed book with the NCEES PE Civil Reference Handbook as your guide (other than structures and safety codes in the afternoon). The topics covered in the NCEES Handbook match with the topics that Lindeburg says will come up in the morning exam (project planning, soil mechanics, structural mechanics etc) . The NCEES handbook is much less comprehensive than the Lindeburg guide. I assume as the NCEES handbook is the only reference, that any questions they ask in the morning that required an equation need to come from this handbook, so if I am comfortable with everything in the NCEES handbook then I should be okay for the exam? I am trying to make sure I have my bases covered but want to be efficient with my study time and not waste time on topics that will not be on the exam. Any feedback would be appreciated - thanks!
