    Codes and References

    I don't know if this matters to you or not, but the PCI is no longer used for the SE exam. All precast questions have been removed. I'm sure they will eventually remove the cold formed AISI questions as well.

    You could always swap and take gravity later (or do both). This could be valuable experience you are passing up as I've already learned some hard lessons from the lateral exam being a lowly east coast non-seismic engineer.

    I don't think I could make it there but gotomeeting or Skype study sessions aren't out of the question. I always study better in groups.

    48 views and not a single reply. I know there are at least a dozen people taking the SE exam near the Atlanta area. I am mainly interested in studying the lateral portion of the exam. A study group would be a great help to every single one of us. We can use my office and I have practice exams, the Seaoc books, and all of the references.
  6. Is anyone interested in group study for the SE exam in the Atlanta, GA area?

    Individual Liability and Asset Insurance

    Why would you do this as an individual and not at least form an S-corp or an LLC? As engineers we will always be at least somewhat personally liable, but it would make more sense to me to put as much distance between you and any possible lawsuit as you can. Purchasing business error and omission insurance is easy for a company and protects you as an individual.

    Well, if I can get over this hurdle, I will start a new account and become a supporting member. Hopefully I will be able to guide others on the East Coast in the awful mess that is seismic design.

    Might as well get it over with.

    Results From October SE?

    I made a 29 out of 40 but I don't want to post it for 2 reasons. (1) The distribution is embarrassing as I scored above average in less criteria than I prefer to disclose and (2) it is likely enough information to narrow down who I am and I prefer to remain as anonymous as possible while on this forum disclosing my scores. Hopefully this will ease your curiosity. To be honest, I really thought I had it this time. I was expecting a 36 in the morning and three acceptable with one improvement required but they pulled some shenanigans with the wood portion of the exam in the afternoon and I couldn't find the information in the new NDS within the specified time limit. I knew what I did wrong but I can't go into further depth without likely getting banned by @knight1fox3 again. Anywho, I appreciate your reply to the MS requirement in the other thread. It's always good to have other opinions, the more you know and all.

    It's ok. You're kind of like my spirit animal anyway. To hate you would be like hating oneself.

    It's ok. I have big shoulders. We can be friends again.
