  1. I meant that, if you have one 0 (UA), you will fail, regardless of the total grade. If you don't have that 0, then the total grade will determine if you passed or not. Basically, there are 2 criterias to determine passing of the exam. 1- No ZERO score in the afternoon 2- Total grade >=56
  2. That's why I called it totally UNFAIR.
  3. Based on the data, that I have seen on different websites about the grading, I think they assign 10 points to each afternoon problem, so the whole exam will be 80 points and usually grades equal or above 56 ( >= 70%) are passed. Acceptable, will be assigned a grade of 8, 9 or 10 (I guess getting 10 out 10 is almost impossible). I/R has a grade of 6 or 7. Most probably, for the grades below 6 (Unacceptable) they put 0, to force the applicant to fail !!!!!! (which is totally UNFAIR in my mind) . Let's say that you got, A(9), A(9), A(8), I/R(6), with 23 in the morning, your grade is 55. What I want to say is that, you were SO, SO CLOSE. Therefore don't give up, you will easily pass it next time.
  4. That's exactly what I think. You can see the analysis here
  5. Hello all, I am planning to take SE Lateral exam in October. I need to study some references before dive into details and solving problems. I was wondering if anybody can introduce me two books, one for Wind Design/Analysis of Buildings and one for Seismic Design/Analysis ?? Moreover, do you think 2015 reinforced concrete masonry book (by California/Nevada Masonry Association) is enough for Seismic Design of Masonry? ? Unfortunately, new version of "Wood Design" book by Breyer covering the reference codes of the exam will be out in September. So, which book do you use for Wood seismic/wind design? Best Regards,
  6. Many thanks deviationz for your suggestions. Just ordered the second one. Do you have any suggestion for Structural Wood Design reference textbook ? I have heard that Breyer's book is the best. Any recommandation ?
  7. Hello, I am looking for a reference textbook (updated with latest version of associated codes ) to learn structural masonry design. I don't have solid background on the topic and have never passed a course on that during school days, so I want a complete and transparent book to start with. Thanks for your time and consideration.
