  1. The day the to do list ends, is the day we have to be worried.
  2. Yivo, you should really look at the requirements of that product. Unless you are licensed in the state that the project takes place your license means nothing and you can not legally sign off on the plans. State laws will always over rule any requirements a client places on a job. The reprocity process is also not an instant process. By time you were to get approved, it may be too late for the project in mind.
  3. Actually, you may not need the Steel Manual at all if you can find the subject material of those few sections elsewhere. For the AMac section, and afternoon Construction Section, there are no Steel design questions on the exam. I actually brought my copy from early 2000's, and I don't think I ever even thought about using it during the exam.
  4. Do you have all of the other code references shown for the exam? Since they removed the PCI reference, one of the other references may have a section that covers this topic now.
  5. You still have a good shot. I played in 12 team league, had a 12-1 record and averaged around 125 a week. Had a Week 1 bye last week and totally bombed this week only getting 59 points after being projected to get 121 points. Our number 2 seed also got eliminated last night after scoring 63 out of a projected 106 points.
  6. This is so annoying...I'm 6'6" so my seat is all the way back. Do you really have to push my seat all the way up for the extremely short time it takes to pull my car in the shop and then back out.
  7. You should review the requirements for your state and make sure your description describes what you have done while satisfying the boards requirements. Did you do any internship work that you can count? I don't know ow where you are from, but in NJ you need at least 2 years of design experience in order to qualify for the exam.
  8. I'm killing it in Fantasy football this year, but I'm upset I started Graham over Ebron this week.
  9. This is the main reason people advise against pencil notes. During the test, you are only allowed to write in test booklet not your references. If proctor accuses you of writing in your references, it's your word against theirs. There's no way to tell what was notes while studying, and what, if any was added during the exam. With all the time, money and effort put in to studying, do you want to risk being kicked out if they think you wrote in your references during the exam?
  10. If I'm not mistaken, I believe NCEES has on their website that you can only change your depth up until the deadline for scheduling the exam. Once that deadline passes you have to stay with the one you signed up with.
  11. That stair design is actually not compliant with FEMA standards. The bottom should have breakaway enclosure, but stairs should have stayed in place. 1) That is now a massive structure being tossed around in the water hitt8ng other houses. 2) If someone was to stay in the house, they'd be trapped with no means of getting out or rescuers getting in safely. Hard to secure a later during a hurricane. If in flood zone that has wave action, which this most likely did, the deep piling foundation is standard practice. Many houses get destroyed in hurricane due to foundation damage. The pile foundation allows the water and waves to flow under the house without affecting the structural integrity of the house.
