Hey All, I'm taking civil structural this week and I've got all my codes. The only outdated one that I have is NDS 2012. Considering that the only real major changes to the NDS 2015 include the incorporation of cross-laminated timber, I'm wondering if anyone else is taking this risk using the older code? Thanks everyone.

For those interested, below is a brief breakdown of the new WR/ENV (AM) portion of the exam. The AM portion of the exam focuses entirely on Water Resources (i.e., no Environmental in the morning – at least according to the NCEES breakdown.) I know this change will make a lot of you happy. Below are the topics to be covered during the Breadth (AM) portion of the April 2015 exam: Water Resources and Environmental (17.5% – 7 out of 40 questions) A. Open-channel flow B. Storm water collection and drainage (e.g., culvert, storm water inlets, gutter flow, street flow, storm sewer pipes) C. Storm characteristics (e.g., storm frequency, rainfall measurement and distribution) D. Runoff analysis (e.g., Rational and SCS/NRCS methods, hydrographic application, runoff time of concentration) E. Detention/retention ponds F. Pressure conduit (e.g., single pipe, force mains, Hazen-Williams, Darcy-Weisbach, major and minor losses) G. Energy and/or continuity equation (e.g., Bernoulli) VIII. Site Development (2.5% – 1 out of 40 questions) C. Temporary and permanent soil erosion and sediment control (e.g., construction erosion control and permits, sediment transport, channel/outlet protection) This brings the total Water Resources problems up to 20% for the Breath (AM) exam for – similar to years before. A more detailed breakdown of the changes (including differences between the previous exam specifications) can be found here: http://goldenratiopublishing.com/blog/ I will try to post a breakdown of the depth (PM) changes shortly ... Best of luck to anyone studying for the April 2015 PE exam, Harry
