From 2022, PE Civil exam will be computer based. Passing PE Civil with Structural depth is next to impossible as no hard copy of reference manuals or charts will be allowed as in the past. NCEES will provide all relevant references on line but only in the exam. NCEES will not arrange the references for practice. Searching support will be difficult. There are nine reference codes and standards including IBC, ACI 318, AISC and so on.

Can anybody gude how to crack this exam in the new condition.

RE: PE-Civil-Structure-2022

So, you no longer have to worry about not having (and paying for) the required references, and you can use control f to search the provided reference - seems like it just got immensely cheaper and easier to me.

Not sure why you say the reference isn't available for practice, this is from the NCEES website:

Quote (NCEES)

For access prior to your exam, you can download a free electronic copy of the NCEES PE Civil Reference Handbook for your personal use. Register or log in to MyNCEES, and go to Dashboard/Common Tasks/Useful Documents/View reference handbooks. NCEES does not sell printed copies of the handbook, and we do not sell or provide design standards.

You now only have to filter through a single reference that is 497 pages as opposed to being intimately familiar with all of the references listed above.
