  1. The fact that we will have to suffer through 5 more hours of examination and the weeks or even months of associated preparation time to pass Seismic and Survey got me thinking, is CA PE more recognized than the PE you get from other states by just passing the national 8-hour exam? Im a structural person and the structural part in the 8 hour exam was not really something challenging. I assume it is the same for other disciplines. However in CA specific, I did spend some more effort to study. I mean the 8-hour is a big and difficult exam by its own right and it is great accomplishment to everyone who prepared and passed, but IMO CA state specific exam is more advanced and closer to actual engineering practice, when compared to 8 hour exam, maybe it is comparable to a MS degree vs. BS degree? Although I will admit that the things covered in Seismic is probably only 3 - 5% of what you learn from a MS degree in Seismic engineering. What do you guys think>
  2. I will be honest here, if you only know to print out c12 of ASCE 7 for your exam you are no where close to be ready for it. Instead of asking what to print here, I would suggest you to actually go work on some examples and see what tables are used. when taking the exam, in addition to the chapters you printed, I think it is very helpful to print out certain pages that include some values used in ELF method and put them in the front of the code, this will save you tons of time flipping thru the book and potentially make mistakes.
  3. Passed, got worried for a bit since I realized I used ASCE7-10 for the exam LOL. Congrats everyone who passed!
  4. Man, this guy teaches prestressed concrete at UCLA and was one of my favorite teacher back then! He flies his private cesna plane from Obispo to LA to teach the course haha good memories
  5. Yea you are right. But I only recall 2 maybe 3 problems that utilized Fa and Fv, most of the problems had SDS provided. I could be wrong tho
  6. I don't think any of the questions touched any area with the updated part of the code.
  7. Wow it hasn't come out this late in the past year....
  8. Reza and its practice problem is all I needed. I'm a structural person so I have absolutely 0 background in Surveying except some of the stuff I did in 8 hour exam. I did Reza and some of its practice problems and when I took Surveying back in November I walked out the the exam center feeling that I probably missed only 1 or 2 problems.
  9. From November post. Seismic and Survey usually com out on the same day. I'm thinking this Friday is very likely the day.
