Excel Test PE Civil Exam Classroom Course

How is the Excel Test PE Civil Exam Course Set Up?

The Excel Test PE Civil course provides comprehensive test preparation for the morning and afternoon topics from ALL five NCEES PE (Civil) Depths: Transportation, Environmental & Water Resources, Geotechnical, Structural, and Construction. Our course consists of two sections:

Review Course: Theoretical concepts are explained to refresh and give students an understanding of important PE Civil Exam topics. Many example problems are worked out in class to reinforce these concepts. The focus of the Excel Test PE Civil review course is to review the important concepts needed for the exam and begin the development of the student’s problem-solving proficiency.

Problem Solving Workshops: The workshops supplement the review courses for the examination. Since the actual examination is focused on problem-solving, the PE Civil Exam course will provide intensive problem-solving practice to enable students to perform at their highest capabilities on the exam. The Excel Test PE course workshops focus on the depth (PM) examinations, which can certainly help to increase the score in the breadth (AM) part of the examination. 100% of classroom time is devoted to solving exam-like problems and strengthening the student’s proficiency within a timed environment, similar to that on exam day.

How long are the courses and what are the topics covered?

Our PE Civil Course will provide over 77 hours of classroom instruction in two sections:

Review Course: The review course covers selected topics from the following: Traffic Systems, Transportation Systems, Structural Analysis and Design, Foundations and Retaining Structures, Geotechnical, Hydraulics, Pumps, Hydrology/Groundwater/Wells, Water Treatment, Wastewater Treatment, and Construction.

What is the format of the PE Civil Exam?

PE (Civil): The PM depth exams are in Environmental & Water Resources, Transportation, Geotechnical, Structural, and Construction. The AM breadth covers all of these areas.
