I attended the PE exam last year, I have a friend who will also sit in the next exam and I am trying to help him.
I also would like to assit any else I am located in Egypt Ciaro.

The advise I would give now is to study to be a good engineer if you take it this way you will pass, I used the following beside my practical experince
The CERM for structural Breadt and Depth
The ASCE code
The 6 minutes and it was helpfull
The NCEES exam sample this is very important
The AISC
The ACI
The Exam cafe was also very good

I hope you all good luck

I think bringing the NDS is a good idea also. They may not cover much timber on the exam, but they have so many factors that the problems become very easy if you have the reference, but if you don't, it is easy to use factors incorrectly.

reviews ive read in EB and PPI in the last 2 years, only one came out for timber using NDS, but in concrete and welding, PCA and AWS came out several times, so its better to have these two instead of the NDS.
