    I just want to keep this here because it's probably going to be the only time I am in first place, in anything.

    More complicated structural analysis?

    in the PE case, i would start wrapping up studying this weekend, focus on getting organized, and use the multiple passes approach to taking the exam. save the concepts you're not super confident in for the end of the exam. this allows you to use your time more efficiently, and keeps you from feelings of discouragement until the end of your time blocks. you're gonna kill it!!

    More complicated structural analysis?

    I guess I should inquire which exam you're studying for... moment distribution is probably not very likely on the PE compared to the SE. on the SE exam, the afternoon has 4 multiple part problems. if you outline the steps indicating you know what you need to do but prob just ran out of time, you could get partial credit, maybe enough to pass. I assumed you meant the SE. I believe it would be good to review the concepts of section/equilibrium on trusses! But, as long as you can determine the forces in members or at joints, on the PE it doesn't matter the process you use to solve for them -just that you get the right answer.

    I would definitely at least go over some example problems involving more in depth concepts. if you can outline the process to go through, you could at least get partial points on the afternoon problems. a friend said he made up a moment distribution problem and really found value in it.

    October 2018 Exam Study Progress

    for everyone I always say, it's so easy to assume what they're asking. do the multiple pass approach and read every unanswered question all the way through each time. this way for the more complex problems you have full comprehension of what they want. This is basically the only thing I changed up between my failing and passing scores.

    D-Day approaching

    I would recommend playing that after the exam as well, and maybe at lunch break. I got to the exam really early, but I would have just been sitting in my hotel room waiting to leave so I just went! good luck!

  17. I took a rolling suitcase for my codes and references (structural also). you will be able to use whatever you need to carry them in. It's just a matter of where the proctors will have you store your bag/suitcase/crates, next to you, under your table, along the side of the room. I would suggest a digital clock that you can get for like 5 bucks that just has the time on it. don't wear anything that has any communication capabilities whatsoever. bluetooth included. Some sites have ruled out anything worn on the wrist. You will probably have to have the clock on the floor and not the table. Drinks and snacks are generally ok as txjennah said make sure they're quiet, and not messy. Drinks typically also have to stay on the floor to avoid spills. I was terrible at remembering this. The notes thing is totally a gamble up to you. I had pencil notes somewhere I'm sure, and I think many people have, but you don't want to be the person who thinks about it, doesn't address it, and then wishes they had. Maybe your last week take time off from straining your brain and make copies to kind of rest and relax. good luck
