Hi John123! I took the EET breadth and depth course for Civil Breadth and Construction Depth. The instruction was phenomenal. However, I failed the first time because I was set dead set on knowing how to complete the problems in the EET binder only. Wrong move. Be sure to diversify your problems. EET has a great way of teaching the CONCEPT. But it's important to carry that information forward to solve problems that are presented differently.

I recommend Goswami practice exams. They are a little harder than the actual exam but they make you think through the concepts and how they relate to one another. Six Minute Solutions Construction Depth helped me to practice scheduling, earthwork and engineering economics. The Civil Engineering PE Practice Exams book is another good resource. Get your hands on as many practice problems as possible and dedicate the last 3 weeks to just practicing problems.

Good luck!

Well, if you go with EET or School of PE, they will supply binders of information for you to study. I don't know much about the NCEES CBT exam, but if NCEES recommends any design standards, you should purchase those and know how to use them. The practice problems will require you to use them, in most cases. So it's a good way to learn how to use them.

You should down load the NCEES Civil Reference Guide (or Reference Manual?) too. I've heard that some people are doing this to familiarize themselves with the guide for the exam.

The reference manual and standards, such as OSHA or other rules, will be provided at the computer based exams. NCEES doesn't provide them ahead of time due to copyright issues. A person doesn't have to purchase those materials, but should be familiar with how to use them.

I can't tell you what to read and what to study. Any of the subject matter listed for exam topics could be covered in the exam. That really comes down to what topics you feel that you need to review deeper and what sources you can make available to you to study from.

Once you start practicing problems and working with a review course, you will grow more familiar with OSHA. I tabbed each of the main subparts and labeled the tabs. Don't worry about reading it cover to cover. You will be tested on your ability to use the reference to answer questions.

As for SP-4, you need to learn how to use certain tables. You won't be tested on everything. EET has a good handle on what you should focus on. I think the review course will answer a lot of your questions.
