Thank you all for the invaluable suggestions. Sounds like getting the Quick Reference is not worthwhile. Trying to look for the NCEES exams but not able to find them.......... will appreciate any advice since they seem to be citical. Is there a specifc unit conversion book that we should follow? Also one major question that I have is on some of the lengthy questions given in the MERM that involve assumptions & iterations. How much time & effort should we spend on such questions? Thanks again for all the help.
