    MD&M practice problem of the week

    I really enjoyed all of the Thermo (Heat Transfer, Thermal Fluid, etc.) classes in college. But i just don't delve into those subjects much anymore for work, so i'd be wayyyy out of practice. I wouldn't mind refreshing on that stuff again, but studying for the MDM (a bazillion topics) is already enough for this year.

    Well, how is everybody's studying coming along? I'm still plugging away with Dr Tom's review. I feel like i'm getting familiar with the MERM, so that makes me feel a bit better. I can tell that i'm going to need to go back over the early weeks again to keep things fresh.
  4. Appreciate it, Sac! I'm actually on week 7 of the 20 week DTC review course. Before moving forward though, i'm going to run through weeks 1-5 problems again to keep it fresh. I think it would be a good idea to work EngProGuides problems corresponding to those weeks as well.

    Now that I think about it, I believe i saw a problem similar to that on the NCEES practice exam. I haven't worked that specific problem yet, but it's good to know that that problem type is something to prepare for. Thanks for the heads up on this! Also, I have found that the AISC beam tables come in handy, but beware of an unreported error on case #2 in some editions. The distance for zero shear/max moment should be .5774L. In my 14th edition, the figure is correct, but the table next to it has .557L instead of .5774L. It won't throw your calculation off a whole lot, but may be confusing when you see it.

    MERM appendix

    I've bought the textbook, and also have electronic access. But i can't print any of the pages to organize some of the important figures, charts & graphs. Copying from this huge thing is a bear. Gonna tab, tab and tab some more.

    Are you planning on taking a review course at all?

    How I passed HVAC/R on the 2nd try

    I've got sort of a hybrid started already, but it is geared toward MDM takers in Oct vs. those who have already passed the exam.

    I have always thought that the Unit Conversion book would be good for Thermal/Fluids. Do you remember what unit conversions in Lindberg's came in the most handy for MDM?
