Engineering Videos provides hundreds of free video example problems covering the topics of water resources engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, construction engineering, and surveying. The main subjects are divided into multiple topics, and there are multiple videos within in each topic. For example, 'Surveying' includes 6 topics. One of these 6 topics is 'Horizontal Curves,' which contains 8 videos.
Most videos range from 3 to 6 minutes in duration and work through a multiple-choice problem. During the video, the problem is clearly described, and the steps taken to solve the problem are logically and straight forward. You can submit comments about the problem being solved in a textbox beneath each video. This website is also hooked in to social networking with a FaceBook
fan page, Twitter
account, and YouTube
This is an excellent resource of free information which totals more than 20 hours of free video, and is ideal for someone preparing for the Civil PE exam.

SmartPros & ASCE CD-ROM
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. You will progress to a practice problem with minimal help available. Finally, you'll take a post-test, where you'll be on your own.
Of course, the beauty of this type of electronic learning is that should you fail the post-test, you can simply go back and review the module again, then re-take the post-test. Course Topics: Economics; Geotechnical Engineering; Hydraulics & Hydrology; Sanitary and Environmental Engineering; Structures; Surveying; and Transportation.
This is an online course, all materials will be accessed online. Your log-in and password will be emailed to you within 24 hours after your purchase (excluding weekends and holidays). No course material will be shipped. You will have access to the course for one year from the date of purchase.

Topics covered include concrete, construction, engineering economics (brief review), fluid mechanics, highway engineering (two sessions), hydrology, mechanics of materials and IBC loads, open channel flow, soils and foundations, timber/steel design, waste facilities engineering.
All students participating will have access to webinars recorded throughout the current webinar review course as an additional educational tool. Webinars will be posted and accessible to students within several days of the date they are held. View these recordings whenever and as often as you like.
Irvine Institute of Technology
The following reviews were specifically prepared for the field of Civil Engineering. They were prepared for the Principles and Practices exam. This site includes study notes, and it is suggested you first download the notes and print them out before viewing the videos. The video presentations are not that clear, and it is easy to get lost without a hard copy of the notes to follow. If you really don't wish to print out the notes, a second suggestion is that you open two instances of your browser on the screen, and use one to display the talking head, and the other to display the notes.
Cost: $195 per subject
University of Delaware
The seminars at ITT are taught by noted experts and practitioners specializing in the subjects they teach.

PE review courses are offered twice a year, corresponding to the spring and fall exams. These review courses (19 sessions each; 20 sessions for the Civil Engineering Review) are designed to help the engineer prepare for the Principles and Practices of Engineering Examination, to provide a general refresher in a given field, and to present an introduction to other engineering fields. Taught by University of Delaware engineering faculty and engineers from industry, this review courses is available in distance format.
The only "textbook" for the civil and environmental engineering PE review courses, the respective notebook of instructor-prepared materials is essential along with the respective Lindeburg textbook.
