About the Author
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
Six-Minute Solutions for Civil PE Exam Water Resources and Environmental Depth Problems is organized into nine chapters. Each chapter contains problems that correspond to the format and scope that would be expected to appear in the civil PE exam’s water resources and environmental depth section.
Most of the problems are quantitative, requiring calculations to arrive at a correct solution. A few are nonquantitative. Some problems will require a little more than 6 minutes to answer, and others require a little less. On average, during the exam you should expect to complete 80 problems in 480 minutes (8 hours), or spend 6 minutes per problem.
The solutions are presented in a step-by-step sequence to help you follow the logical development of the correct solution and to provide examples of how you may want to approach your solutions as you take the PE exam.
Each problem includes a hint to provide direction in solving the problem. In addition to the correct solution, you will find an explanation of the faulty solutionsleading to the three incorrect answer options. The incorrect options are intended to represent common mistakes specific to different problem types. These may be simple mathematical errors, such as failing to square a term in an equation, or more serious errors, such as using the wrong equation.
Though you will not encounter problems on the exam exactly like those presented in this book, reviewing these problems and solutions will increase your familiarity with the exam problems’ format, content, and solution methods. This preparation will help you considerably during the exam.
