    SE Structural Engineering Ref. Manual Errata

    I sent them an message about this on facebook and got the following response. "Hi Rick, We used to have an Errata section on our website, but that is no longer available. I would recommend that you upgrade to the 9th edition, but make sure the eTextbook is included. If any errors are found in the content of the 9th edition, it will be addressed and updated in the etextbook digital version."
  3. Hopefully this doesn't violate the terms but I used the PCI for exactly one problem on the vertical portion. But it was extremely rudimentary.

    April 2018 SE Exam Results

    Did you find any of these books to not be worth your time or did you find them all relatively useful?

    EET-SE Review

    It appears I'm off to a bit of a rocky start. I signed up for on-demand and the software is telling me I need to wait for the presenter to arrive. I emailed the director to see if I'm missing a step.

    April 2018 SE Exam Results

    I took and passed vertical last year but failed lateral this year. AM: 24/40 PM: Acceptable/Acceptable/Acceptable/Slight Improvement Needed. It is baffling the areas I was deficient in as those are the areas I do most of my work in. I guess living in the northeast not typically designing for seismic put me at a bit of a disadvantage. I think I didn't read the problems and the code-provisions I was citing closely enough. I need to read more thoroughly as to what they are asking and what the code is actually telling me next time.

    EET-SE Review

    I think I'll be signing up to give this a whirl. I really can't afford the PPI or the ASCE courses. If this one doesn't work I'll try out school of PE. Just keep cycling my way through them. Given that I'm a bit late to the party, I think I will be relegated to the on-demand stuff.

    Structural Depth April 2018

    I know I am a little late to the party. After the exam I felt violated by the AM section. The afternoon section I got through pretty easily. Turns out my intuitions were right. 24/40 on the AM and only one "Slight improvement needed" on the afternoon. Think I need to read the questions and the code provisions a bit more carefully. We'll see what happens. It's certainly proving to be more difficult to study in the summer than it was in the dead of winter.
