Civil PE Exam Review

For those sitting for the PE Exam in October of 2019, a PE Civil Exam Review will be held starting August 12, 2019, at Lipscomb University Fields Engineering Center and will be available via a videoconferencing link. The courses will be taught by Professional Engineers and based on the Civil Engineering Reference Manual (Lindeburg 15th edition). It will focus on the "breadth" (morning) portion of the exam and will include the general topics covered during the morning part of the exam.
