    CA Specific Exams

    You too... wishing everyone a safe and Happy Holidays.
  2. WOW!!! You do love geometry and surveying I had to spend some time to locate the pdf in my archives... your answer is correct!! For the book... do a web search on "Survey Computations" bruce harvey and you should be able to locate it... it is notes from Bruce Harvey, a professor of Civil Engineering from Australia.
  3. Definitely bring a ruler and protractor... most of the drawings for the surveying exam are drawn more or less to scale. If you can't figure out a problem, sometimes it is worthwhile to scale it from the screen. At least, your guess will be better than just a wild/blind guess. Good luck.
  4. I took EET and can't say enough good things about the course and the instructor, Dr. Ibrahim. I took only the EET book, the handouts that EET provided and ASCE 7-10. I only referred to the handouts that EET provided. The relevant sections from the ASCE are given by EET, so those were enough. I did not feel the need to look at any other material or thought... shoot, I should have brought that with me to the exam... EET's books and handouts were more than enough. Good luck.
  5. It all depends on the person of course. I took the EET course for Seismic and the CSEPR(?) course for Surveying. The last one was mainly for the CBTs. I spent around 120-140 hours for Seismic and about 80-100 hours on Surveying including practice exams. Best of luck.
  6. Another vote for EET... I took their Seismic Course and can't say enough good things about the course and the instructor.
  7. My vote goes to EET for seismic. Dr. Ibrahim is one of the best and caring teachers I have seen. I had bought the DVD and book from Dr. Mansour for survey. I think it is a good resource but you need some practice CBTs. Good luck for your studies and exams. Maji

    CA Board Meeting

    Congratulations to the newly minted PEs and all the best to those studying hard to become one.
  9. Congrats to all who are now PEs... and good luck to those studying hard to become one.
  10. Best wishes to all taking the exams.
  11. The second equation is not equal to the third equation in your post. Anyway, the second and the third are easy. The second one is d^(2+2/3) = 63.72/(0.353^(2/3)) => d = [63.72/(0.353^(2/3))]^(8/3) . The first one is a quadratic equation in d if you go through the algebra. Of course, you can use your calculator as the previous poster suggested to get the answer. However, sometimes it is good to go through the algebra just to sharpen the old skill set. Good luck.
