    Congrats, man. You are now one of the elite. With great power comes great responsibility. You now have to make gatagunna's map.

    I don't think so. We are too dumb to pass lateral.

    Sorry. I haven't seen anyone pass SE lateral buildings on this board yet.

    Crap, I'm sorry. I'm with the rest of em, I felt confident leaving this exam and did worse than I did on the first one. Oh well, I do wish they offered it more than twice a year. This thing is costing me money, time, and possibly my partnership. Thanks GA.

    No, he was being a jerk. What was said was basically the equivalent of saying "Hey everyone, the ASCE 7-10 is required for the exam." NCEES basically even posts the material that was discussed.

    A little ridiculous scolding, don't you think. We didn't mention how the problem was set up and everyone KNOWS that masonry, wood, steel, and concrete are on the exams. For the love of GOD some of you mods are just jerks.

    I took it in Alabama. Passed gravity but this was my 2nd lateral attempt. I signed up for School of PE to help with the seismic detailing (my weakness). What's funny is that I did better on the previous exam before taking a class on seismic detailing. At this point, I'm not sure I can pass this thing.

    I'm going to start designing units for the air tonnage if they can't get me the proper cut sheets at the beginning. Oh you want a five ton unit? I'll design it as if it weighed 5 tons.

    When did the inspectors quit doing their job? The used to make contractors tear garbage out that was obviously wrong. In my experience it has been the past 5 years when they have started dumping everything back in the engineer's lap. I usually just hold out my hand and say "I'll fix it for eleventy billion dollars." The problem either goes away or I have drinking money (only way to stay sane in this business).

    I have learned that my chances of keeping my lateral systems unaltered are much greater if I don't label them until the 100% set. It seems to me that the minute I label my lateral system, my clients want to either move it or cut holes in it. It is like I paint a target on it. True story.

    First, it would have to tell you "This is exactly what I want." Then, it would have to say "Ok, I have a revision, but it didn't change much!"

    Well, everyone needs to get back from lunch and talk to me. I am lonely in my consideration of this SE lateral test. It reminds me of Schrodinger's cat. Until I have seen the result, I have both passed and failed this test.

    Hey, with dating they can say #metoo and ruin your life just because they don't understand the difference between sexual harassment and being hit on. Oh well, I'm glad I'm married and not dealing with today's dating society. By the way, I grew up with # being spoken as "pound" so "pound me too" is kind of funny to me.

    I didn't take it that way. All I meant was good luck, but if you DID fail and pass on the second try you are well within the statistical average of a high IQ/advanced degree sector of the population. That and the fact that I don't see buildings falling left and right tells me the test is too difficult for measuring a MINIMUM standard of competency.

    I hear you, but I don't think a petition will do much. I considered as much when they denied my reciprocity, however, I've had colleagues that have attempted to fight it and they were unsuccessful. I'm not saying you will be, but I am saying the odds aren't in your favor. I'm just knuckling under and doing as I'm told.

    Assuming I passed this test, I'll probably never open the accursed 7-16.
