I am taking the Geotechnical PE and I'm in Florida; have been all my life. For those out there that are in the know what reference should I bring with me to handle the seismic problems? I have been told that its quite a beast on the exam if you don't have the experience or references to handle it. Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance.

I didn't know that Florida requires the seismic Test?

According to the NCEES Geotech exam specs only 5% (2 problems) of the afternoon problems are "Earthquake Engineering".
