I just tooke the Engineering Survey section of the PE Exam two days ago and used this book as a reference. I DEFINITELY would NOT RECOMMEND this book as a reference. It will not help you prepare for the exam and will give you a false impression of how the exam is going to be like. The practice problems that are on the PE are a thousand times harder then what is in this book. If you want to pass the Engineering Survey section this book will not help you at all! The only use I have for this book now is for toilet paper. If did not require a minimum star rating of 1 star I would have give it zero.
The problems in this book are not as difficult as those presented on the exam. The exam's problems are much more tedious.Also, because this book is bound with staples, it is NOT allowed at the Surveying portion of the California State specific Civil PE exam, a fact I discovered today. If you try to take it in, it will be confiscated. While it may not have actually helped me since the test is actually much harder than this, it was very disappointing to have it taken away moments before the big test.
Having just taken the CA Civil Surveying exam, I can say that this book is not even close to a realistic approximation of the exam. The second sample exam I took, took me 1 1/2 hours to complete the 50 questions and I got 40 of them correct. The actual exam took me all of the allotted 2 1/2 hours. There were over 50 questions on the real exam and they were SIGNIFICANTLY more difficult than those in this book. This book is one of the few out there for this exam, but it is not adequate for the task. For $70 PPI could do much better (actually, almost anyone who has taken the exam could come up with something better)
I took PE exam. I passed the Civil Survey Exam at once with this book and another material. But this is a sample test. Real exam can be different from this book. This can be one of your study materials for survey.
Got this along with the Cuomo review book. I think This book has better question that the Cuomo review book. But still get the Cuomo book as it has the overviews of all subjects
