    Critique my Materials

    I'm beginning my studies for my Building exams, vertical & lateral, in April, 2019. Please critique my selection of books I'm going in with and studying from.

Code Standards I already have 2015 CBC ASCE 7-10 ACI 318-14 AISC steel manual + seismic manual, 2010 Code Standards I still need to get (How important are these - do I really need?) AISI S100 & S213 - 2012 TMS 402/602 - 2013 NDS spec & supplement & SDPWS - 2015 AASHTO 7th ( doing Buildings - do I need? ) Reference Material I plan on obtaining (please let me know if you think any of these are not worth it or if there is something else I need. Also, PM me if you would like to sell me any materials) NCEES SE Practice Exam PPI STERM, 9th edition PPI SE Buildings Practice Exam, 5th edition PPI Solved Problems for the SE exam, 7th edition 6 minute - SE Structural Breadth, 6th edition Thanks!

    California SE Experience Requirements

    I'm a little antsy to take the test and am debating taking the test in Nevada next year, and then applying for comity in CA when I have enough qualifying work experience. That might just be more trouble than it's worth though, especially if CA won't accept that I took the test before I had the work experience. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks in advance.
  7. I graduated in December 2015 with a Masters. I used my 2016 year of engineering work towards my Civil Engineering License, but did not get licensure until January 2018. 2016 (EIT, year counted towards PE licensure) 2017 (EIT, year NOT counted towards PE licensure) 2018 & On (P.E.) Do 2016 and 2017 both count, and I will have 3 years experience in January 2019? Does only 2017 count, and I will have 3 years experience in January 2020? Do neither 2016 nor 2017 count, and I will have 3 years experience in January 2021? Thanks!

    So annoying. CCards are 3 3/8" X 2 1/8". So this won't fit in my wallet

    CA Specific Exams

    I just realized I never found out if I passed the take home... Seems weird the board doesn't notify you if you pass or fail either way
