Book Description

The Most Comprehensive Book for the Computer-Based Civil FE Exam

The FE Civil Review Manual offers complete coverage of FE Civil exam knowledge areas and the relevant elements—equations, figures, and tables—from the NCEES FE Reference Handbook. With 16 mini-exams to assess your grasp of the exam’s knowledge areas, and concise explanations of thousands of equations and hundreds of figures and tables, the Review Manual contains everything you need to prepare for the FE Civil exam.

The Review Manual organizes the Handbook elements logically, grouping related concepts that the Handbook has in disparate locations. All Handbook elements are shown in blue for easy identification. Equations, and their associated variations and values, are clearly presented. Descriptions are succinct and supported by exam-like example problems, with step-by-step solutions to reinforce the theory and application of fundamental concepts. Thousands of terms are indexed to facilitate cross-referencing. 

If you are preparing for a different FE exam, choose Michael R. Lindeburg, PE’s FE Electrical and Computer Review Manual, FE Mechanical Review Manual, FE Other Disciplines Review Manual, or FE Review Manual.

5Amazing review book as long as you put in the time and effort. Take advantage of the digital tools offerred as well!
By Terry DiCorcia
Well, this book definitely does wonders. I passed my FE after spending about 3 months working on this book. Amazing layout, has a built in schedule, and breaks down every single section the FE. It's an intense book and expect to really strap down and study. I took the FE about a year after I graduated so this review manual acted as my "refresher" for all the topics I forgot about. Nice and sturdy book and has a code on the inside for working on the problems online in a digital format. The only thing that I would have liked to see was some kind of overall practice test, but the tests at the end of each section obviously sufficed if I passed! Definitely a really good review book - totally recommend and worth every cent.

3Maybe the best book covering the exam out there but definitely not perfect
By mustafa
The book is good in general. However, it misses the important concepts and focuses on the wrong directions.
Let me explain, there is a complete chapter for differential equations but they are not required for civil exam according to NCEES reference manual. On the other hand, there is no single example on Truss/Frame Deflection by Unit Load Method! yes they are covered in this book but you won't understand the concept without examples. The other problem I had is that the examples in this book are plug in numbers, which makes them useless in general, we all know how to put numbers in equations! I found myself using the internet a lot to find answers to my questions.

1Not reflective of exam contents.
By Amazon Customer
I can see this book being helpful if you are learning the material for the first time though it covers a lot of material that is not needed on the FE Civil (April 2017) exam. Problems/concepts often use equations not covered by the NCEES reference manual and take significantly longer than any FE exam problem will.

I recommend you only consider this book if you are struggling with the NCEES practice exam.
