  1. Texas is out. Officially S.E. holder. Passed Lateral - Building
  2. If this was the case, we should have received the SE results, because Texas PE results are out already. Also, other states released the PE results today, but nobody reported receiving SE result from those states.
  3. 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
  4. That's why I called it totally UNFAIR.
  5. 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.
  6. That's exactly what I think. You can see the analysis here
  7. 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,
  8. 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 ?
  9. 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.
