Uploaded by AceThePE on 19.06.2012

Hi everybody today i want to share with you about a resource that will help you on
the civil
PE exam or the professional engineering exam
civil discipline
and that resource is these thirteenth edition of the civil engineering
reference manual - you have a brand new copy right here
hot off the press and it's got the nice cover on it with the bridge and i'm so
they now yes but you don't have to have a brown
version of this anymore
great copy of the manual
but that the civil engineer reference manual for those of you who are new to
the civil PE exam you're trying to fact figure out what materials to put
together let's say this is going to be a core of your reference
four your studies and also point your
consume your your studies in your review and also put it takes with you to the
and you might ask why do i need such an at such a reference manual when i have
all my textbooks from college and so forth
and reality is
there's textbooks from colleges
are convinced enough to be able to work your way through the problems quick
another found the solutions quick enough
on the exam any in during your mat review
for that matter
so it's good to have a co reference such as this one
to help you in your studies
and this is the one that most people recommend in the industry
and it's been here for over thirty years
uh... so it's a great reference manual and I recommended and that's why am
i'm recommending today
one thing about it to them even in the manual so
I wanted to share that I made the acknowledgements
and they can see that right there but once you get the manual you can take a
look at
any richardson
is writing on the knowledge was paid and they did the masonry chapter
answer they give me a little credibility i suppose for helping me figure out what
you're trying to
ideas for us
what materials and so forth

so let me share with you uh... that that's of course not important part what
is the important part is
wasn't what the share with you about this book and how i can help you pass
the peas and
well into the p_p_i_
website of the publisher
of this book a civil engineer efforts manual
and the website is p_p_i_ to pass dot com
that's PPI the number two you pass dot com whatever their and you can see
there the price of this book almost two hundred and ten dollars listed
it's got a in red a hundred sixty-eight goes through a link
that you can find
uh... that that i'm providing today is called a sleepy he dot com
four slash
get ppr
go through that link sign up for that account and you'll get a twenty percent
through june twenty ninth twenty twelve
you know drop down to
just fifteen percent after that said go to that as soon as you can and save
you know that that far
percent extra which would give you total twenty percent discount but
what i want to share with you off that website is what this book covers and
is upgraded in the from the twelfth thirteenth addition
so whatever there and i found out of course already knew pretty much that
the civil engineering
exam covers
five sub areas which includes construction
transportation structural
and the final
includes two sub
areas which is water resources an environmental this book covers all
father areas animal will chapters
but the question you may be asking and what is new between the twelfth addition
and thirteen condition
the big thing that was changed with the structural changes
and what happened was the international building code
change from the two thousand six abby c two two thousand nine
ended n_c_ double yes which is the national council
of engine examination of engineers and surveys they make these changes
as best occasioned
answer these companies coming just has to follow suit
and they anticipated to change actually ahead of time in and may be obtained is
but when they change for the two thousand six obviously to the two
thousand nine
that changed although sub-standard which includes
the concrete
a c out five thirty
standard as well which is the masonry standard
and so all these sub-standard had to be updated so that means the concrete
chapter had to be updated
the may's reach ever had to be updated
they also added a bridge tender
into the new
uh... so you may be asking what do i have bridges on the civil p
it is possible you might have a bridge question a very simple one
uh... so it's not that it had to skim over that
but it's a good idea
to now understand bridges always have a general idea of of bridges where your
uh... depending on which pratt is that maybe
other things are going to be include and the manual that they've changed
they've done i'll quite a bit revisions between changing
mcdyess content and the and the verbage part of the the
examples have been changed
they have new content as well new content and the text nuclear quasars new
tables new figures
uh... attendees sees a been provides
so you're going to get the new manual because he might have a problem on the
he's a wrong solution
the wrong equation from the old manual
and so the best thing to do here is the new manual and get them answer correct
the first time
uh... ceo i have to take it one time
uh... army so
twenty amazon just to compare their price ever there's two twelve
two r twelve dollars or two hundred eleven sixty eight to be exact to not
quite as good as the one you get there
uma course if you can do you know if you have to get from amazon
uh... amendment especially can do that
unless you get my website and usually they're in that'll give me the uh...
commission off of it
uh... cuba few dollars to to help pay for my my babies but don't thing about
the amazon link is is actually had a stock right now
so and as of today which is
twenty of twenty twelve so
i'm sure they'll get that pretty quick
but right now so i a stock has a little more expensive than the one right out
the p_p_i_ website so
that's uh... that's what i was on hands a question though she have pa probably a
should you have a great
yes I would recommend the thirteenth addition to that
to see me from the twelve to thirteen th
and if you have a question of should you get the book at all and i would say yes
i would recommend you get this book
because i believe it will help you pass a the PE exam
and ultimately
week the drain having professional into me
thanks everybody and i hope you have which is the death of of upcoming
