The PE Review Practice Exams used to be offered as PDF files you download, and print. However, new subscribers will access the online format. These new exams offer substantial advantages over the existing downloaded PDFs: The problems will draw from a large database of problems, thereby increasing variety. The new online exams will be strictly […]
As we all know, NCEES structures the PE into two exams: AM and PM which it identifies as “breadth” and “depth” respectively. Each exam has 40 questions. Each lasts 4 hours. The only difference is that the AM exam has 5 disciplines and the PM exam has one. This means that both breadth and depth […]
For anyone over 40, taking the PE Exam may seem like a younger persons endeavor. Not so… Here’s a recent comment we received from Carla, responding to this post, The Holiday Spirit and that looming PE Exam: I really like the article Holiday Spirit and that Looming PE Exam. However, I do not consider myself a “young engineer”. I’m 50 years old and even though I graduated […]
Here’s a question from Jacqueline that’s stumping all of us; anyone know the answer? It is my understanding that you cannot take a drafting compass into the exam, so how do you plot mohrs circle for the triaxial test problems?

Yes. You can upgrade any time.
No – the subscription is in your name and is for you alone. Illegal use of your subscription or sharing is unethical and will not be tolerated.
We have a clever algorithm that inspects the time your account will have been shown as active.
No. But we believe that if you apply yourself to the program, your chances of passing are good. Your subscription runs for a year so you’ll be able to use it for a second try at the exam, if needed.
No. We host the service. All you need is a computer with an Internet connection and the latest version of Adobe Flash. The video demos are delivered in “High Definition Flash”. It’s just like “You-Tube”, only better.
No. All you need is audio and video so that you can hear and see the live instruction.

The practice exams are all timed and online. You take them under exam conditions. At the end of the exam, your score and solutions will be immediately available.
Some of you will be selective covering those areas that are your weaker points. But if you were to cover the entire course, it would take 40 to 60 hours of study.
You can try the 2-hour exams under timed conditions; or you can double up two exams to simulate the ‘real thing’. You can even set up a full day’s worth (4hours + 4hours) to get the complete experience!
Take a good dictionary into the exam if you’re a non-native English speaker, or if you went into Engineering to avoid writing!

A Civil Engineering PE Review is more critical to Civil Engineers than any other branch of engineering. This article explains why Civil Engineers have to put their professional opinion on the line.
This article offers a transition from school to work by explaining how the experience of a tough 4-year degree in Civil Engineering with all the exams, fails to prepare us for that PE Exam. The article shows how the examiners change the emphases and methods of examining from those we learned from our professors.
The PE Exam is so broad, so random, and so unpredictable that it needs a different approach. Instead of wading through many big fat books, this article shows how preparation should be comprehensive but focused. It stresses the importance of practice.
This article explains why the PE Review courses are so important for most of us. It shows how undergraduate education can be variable, even when all programs are accredited.

Always make sure your units match those in the alternative answers.
