Choose the new edition of PE Civil Practice Problems, 16th Edition which is update for October 2018 exam specifications. 

Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam contains over 900 problems designed to reinforce your knowledge of the topics presented in the Civil Engineering Reference Manual. Short, six-minute, multiple-choice problems follow the NCEES Civil PE exam problem format and focus on individual engineering concepts. Longer, more complex problems challenge your skills in identifying and applying related engineering concepts. Problems will also familiarize you with the codes and standards you’ll use on the exam.

Solutions are clearly written, complete, and easy to follow. U.S. customary and SI units are equally supported, and units are meticulously identified and carried through in all calculations. All solution methodologies permitted by the NCEES Civil PE exam (e.g., ASD and LRFD) are presented. Frequent references to figures, tables, equations, and appendices in the Civil Engineering Reference Manual and the exam-adopted codes and standards will direct you to relevant support material.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

This book is primarily a companion to the Civil Engineering Reference Manual. As a tool for preparing for an engineering licensing exam, there are a few, but not very many, ways to use it.

Before it grew to behemoth size, I envisioned this book being taken to work, on the bus or train, on business trips, and on weekend pleasure getaways to the beach. I figured that it would “carry” a lot easier than the big Civil Engineering Reference Manual. Though I do not think you will be taking this book on any backpacking trips, you might still find yourself working problems in the cafeteria during your lunch break.

The big issue is whether you really work the practice problems or not. Some people think they can read a problem statement, think about it for about ten seconds, read the solution, and then say “Yes, that is what I was thinking of, and that is what I would have done.” Sadly, these people find out too late that the human brain does not learn very efficiently in that manner. Under pressure, they find they know and remember too little. For real learning, you have to spend some time with a stubby pencil.
