April 2012 Structural PM
Posted 28 November 2011 - 07:32 PM
i am going to start my preparation for April 2012 Civil PE/Structural PM. I have been reading the posts for some time now , but it seems like more i read more confusing it gets.
So looking for some specific answers.
1) CERM 12 for morining session is enough?
2) Structural reference manual and listed codes enough? I am thinking that i will still need to reference textbooks for structural analysis portion? Any good reference text books you can recommend?
3) Hiner book for sceicmic enough or i should take review class? I am in Sacramento area?
4) What book i need for Surveying?
It seems like i need to cover a lot ? Need some clear direction in regards to preparation strategy.

To answer (some of) your questions:
2.) I can't comment. I chose Transpo depth
3.) It's up to you. Yes, the Hiner book is enough (along with CBC/IBC and ASCE 7). Especially since you are a Structures guy. But, if you think a class would help, go for it. I attempted the Seismic on my own with no class. I think I passed but won't know for sure until January '12
4.) I passed the Survey with just the typical PPI books. Surveying Principles, 120 Probs and Sample Exams

To each his/her own, but I have a philosophy of studying to ace the exam, not just barely scrape by.
