  1. I took EET and can't say enough good things about the course and the instructor, Dr. Ibrahim. I took only the EET book, the handouts that EET provided and ASCE 7-10. I only referred to the handouts that EET provided. The relevant sections from the ASCE are given by EET, so those were enough. I did not feel the need to look at any other material or thought... shoot, I should have brought that with me to the exam... EET's books and handouts were more than enough. Good luck.
  2. It all depends on the person of course. I took the EET course for Seismic and the CSEPR(?) course for Surveying. The last one was mainly for the CBTs. I spent around 120-140 hours for Seismic and about 80-100 hours on Surveying including practice exams. Best of luck.
  3. I agree with that assessment too!!
  4. I did what ExhibitGuy wrote... and passed Maji
  5. Another vote for EET... I took their Seismic Course and can't say enough good things about the course and the instructor.
  6. My vote goes to EET for seismic. Dr. Ibrahim is one of the best and caring teachers I have seen. I had bought the DVD and book from Dr. Mansour for survey. I think it is a good resource but you need some practice CBTs. Good luck for your studies and exams. Maji

    Good luck!
  11. Exam window opening tomorrow

    Best wishes to all taking the exams.
  12. The second equation is not equal to the third equation in your post. Anyway, the second and the third are easy. The second one is d^(2+2/3) = 63.72/(0.353^(2/3)) => d = [63.72/(0.353^(2/3))]^(8/3) . The first one is a quadratic equation in d if you go through the algebra. Of course, you can use your calculator as the previous poster suggested to get the answer. However, sometimes it is good to go through the algebra just to sharpen the old skill set. Good luck.
  13. CA-Seismic exam

    I believe you are right.
  14. CA-Seismic exam

    I don't believe that is correct. The questions are all equally weighted but there are some questions that will not be considered in the final tally. They are for use in future exams and are used as test cases. CAPLS posts here regularly and he can answer that question with authority. Good luck on your exam. Maji
  15. EET Seismic Review

    Chapters 5 and 6 are very important. If you know the concepts there, then 7 thru 13/14 should be fairly easy to understand. Make sure you understand the concept of diaphragms well as you will definitely see a bunch of questions on that portion. Good luck.
