ABOUT THIS BOOK

Six-Minute Solutions for Civil PE Transportation Depth Exam Problems is organized into ten chapters. Each chapter contains problems that correspond to the format and scope that would be expected in the afternoon transportation depth section of the civil PE exam.

Most of the problems are quantitative, requiring calculations to arrive at a correct solution. A few are nonquantitative. As on the exam, some of this book’s problems will require a little more time to solve than others. On average, you should expect to spend about six minutes solving each problem.

Each problem includes a hint to provide direction in solving the problem. The solutions are presented in a step-by-step sequence to help you follow the logical development of the correct solution and to provide examples of how you may want to approach your solutions as you take the PE exam.

In addition to the correct solution, you will find an explanation of the faulty solutions leading to the three incorrect answer options. The incorrect options are intended to represent common mistakes specific to different problem types. These may be simple mathematical errors, such as failing to square a term in an equation, or more serious errors, such as using the wrong equation.

Though you won’t encounter problems on the exam exactly like those presented in this book, reviewing these problems and solutions will increase your familiarity with the exam’s format, content, and solution methods. This preparation will help you considerably during the exam.

Six-Minute Solutions for Civil PE Transportation Depth Exam Problems includes some problems related directly to geotechnical and water resources engineering. You’ll find additional problems from these subdisciplines, which are included in the transportation exam, in Six-Minute Solutions for Civil PE Exam Geotechnical Problems and Six-Minute Solutions for Civil PE Exam Water Resources and Environmental Problems.
