PE exam help

I am scheduled to take the PE exam in April 2000. Would you please give some of your studying experience. I do mainly work in Geotechnical and Structural.
what are the review guides you use ?
Would the other subjects be enough to cover the minimum required number of problems on the exam?
Which subjects did you concentrate on?
How many hours on the average did you study weekly?
And whatever information you can think of.


RE: PE exam help

You will probably be allowed to take reference books to the exam. A good source for titles is: www.fatbrain.com It is a web site for technical books. When entering, use the quick search and enter 'Sructural Engineering Handbook' also try 'Geotechnical Engineering Handbook'.

Many of the books are very expensive. A good source for out of print or used books is: www.mxbf.com

Good luck.

RE: PE exam help

I worked mostly structural problems on the exam I took with a few civil (roadway design) problems. If you are familiar with steel and concrete, you should do well. Good luck!
