Hey all- I'm gearing up for the October SE Vertical exam and have a quick question regarding ASD vs LRFD. I don't have the 13th edition of the AISC manual that combines LRFD and ASD and have done nearly all of my steel design (not program based) by ASD. All information I had read to date says "examinees will have the option to work problems in ASD or LRFD". I'm working through a few sample problems and some specify which IBC combination to use, one of which is a steel design problem specifying and LRFD combo. Are you restricted to LRFD in this case? If so, I need to get my hands on a revised steel manual. Thanks and good luck to all preparing for the exam.
