2-way slabsConcrete Seismic

In looking through the PCA Chapter 18 & 29 seismic notes, it appears that it is extremely common to have 2 way slabs in combination with high-rise concrete structures in seismic regions.
I was wondering if it is anyone's experience whether they saw significant problems involving 2-way slabs on the exam - particularly the EFM. I don't think I'm asking anything exclusive or too particular about the exam, so forgive me if it seems I'm trying to pull things out of you. Just trying to prepare and have some level of expectancy of what to study.

FWIW, I have the direct design method down. The EFM is more advanced. I think we might run into an issue where we have to calculate the moment on a beam from the 2-way action. Not that hard, but good to keep in the hip pocket...
