INTRODUCTIONThe purpose of this book is to provide a great quantity of practice problems with brief solutions for people preparing to sit for the state Civil Surveying examination. This book is not intended to be an in depth teaching text and therefore it is recommended to utilize this tool only after having had a course specific to civil surveying or completing a self teaching manual on the subject. The text is divided into two sections, Problems and Solutions. The state Civil Surveying examination is challenging. Examination statistics show that often the passing rate is as little as 41%. Preparation requires both knowledge of the subject matter and the skill sets to make the computations quickly. The solutions in this book often recommend a programmable calculator be utilized to automate complex and time consuming sets of equations or mathematical methods. Knowledge of the subject matter alone is often insufficient to complete the examination in the time frame allotted and the ability to rapidly determine the answer to the problem can be vital to success. Exam takers often choose a strategy of identifying problems that are time consuming and/or problems in which they tend to have a high error rate in computing. During the exam any problems falling in to either of these two categories are initially passed over and attempted at the end of the exam time period. This approach serves to maximize the number of correctly answered problems through time management and confidence building. We wish you the best in your goal to pass the state Civil Surveying examination.
