PE Exam Review - Civil - All Modules Online
To help you prepare for the PE Exam, ASCE and SmartPros, Ltd. have created this multimedia electronic learning course in cooperation with the Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section (BSCES), featuring seven of top civil engineering instructors. The SmartPros, Ltd. team of a dozen instructional designers worked over a period of eight months with the seven BSCES instructors who present the live classroom version of the course. Their goal: to convert the classroom course into an interactive multimedia experience that simulates taking the real-life PE Exam.
This is not a teaching course, it's a review course, a refresher. And this is reflected in its design. First of all, it's up to you to choose the topics you want to review for the exam. These topics are divided into modules, each presenting a series of problems-in exactly the format you will encounter them on the actual PE Exam. The course materials are updated regularly to ensure that they conform to the current PE Exam format and content, and includes the new Construction Supplement for the new construction module that is now part of the PE Exam.
You'll start with a demonstration exam problem. You can call on as much or as little help as you need to solve this problem, including getting the instructor (in full-motion video) to walk you through the problem step by step. Then you'll progress to a practice problem with minimal help available. Finally, you'll take a posttest, where you'll be on your own. Of course, the effectiveness of this type of e-learning is that if you do not pass the posttest, you can simply go back and review the module again, then re-take the posttest. The Construction Supplement is a manual that will explain theory, solutions and sample exam questions.
If you are ordering the complete PE Exam Review Course ($725) for the California Exam, you will also receive, AT NO CHARGE, "Seismic Design of Building Structures, 9th ed."
