Which Civil PE Exam is the Easiest?
I get this question A LOT. Before I answer it, I have a question for you.
Do you have your Civil Engineering Reference Manual (aka CERM) near by? If so, grab it because you’ll need it to understand the what the easiest civil PE exam is. (If you don’t have one with you, don’t worry. You can look at it later.)
How To Figure It Out
You should consider these two items when you’re wondering about the easiest civil PE exam: First, look at your CERM; it's divided into the 5 civil engineering specializations I talked about last week. (If you didn’t see that video, click HERE.) Each category contains invaluable information, but the quantity of information varies widely. Second, keep in mind that each specialization has a certain number of standards that you have to bring into the exam.
You Still Have to Put in the Work
In all honesty, to be adequately prepared for ANY of the PE exams, it will take A LOT of time and effort on your part, but this CEA Quick Tips video will help you narrow down:
- Which specializations require the least/most prep
- What the required standards are for the PE exam
- And finally, my opinion on the Top 2 “easiest” PE exams
