I know many people focus on Seismic. I personally haven't had any problem with it, since all my experience is in California with 99% of my projects in SDC D or E.
However, my unacceptable problem for the PM portion was the Wind problem. Without going into any details, I thought I had aced the problem. The only justification for having failed the problem to me is that I must have used a completely different/wrong wind chapter (which I doubt, since the problem did mention the chapter to use, as far as I can recall).
Based on the diagnostics, I did okay in the morning (28/40), however, I can still highlight areas that I can improve in, but for the afternoon portion having unacceptable for wind has really confused me. Since, I don't know how to prepare for it. I am not worried about seismic problems at all, but more worried if a similar wind problem comes in April 2020, I wouldn't really know how to do it differently. Which brings me to my questions:
1. Has anyone been in the same boat?
2. Just like there are SEAOC manuals for seismic problems, is there something similar for practicing wind problems? Practice problems with solutions would highlight my mistake I guess.
