  5. Everyone who is preparing for the April 12th and 13th sitting of the 16 Hour Structural exam please be advised that the Kaplan Structural Engineering PE Licence Review Problems and Solutions 8th ed. and the Civil & structural Engineering Seismic Design Review for the PE exam 7th ed both by Alan Willams and bolth sold together by Kaplan as a package have numerous errors. I am not just talking about small typos but glarring errors that could turn an "Acceptable" answer to a "Needs improvement" or knock a "needs improvement" down to an "unaccceptable". What is very distressing is that there is even instances where information in one of these texts is refuted in the second text. Take for example EX 4.5 in Civil & structural Engineering Seismic Design Review for the PE exam 7th ed , The drag force diagram in exibit 23 is just plain incorrect since the drag force diagram should be drawn as the area under the net shear curve. The exact same problem shows up in Structural Engineering PE Licence Review Problems and Solutions 8th ed. as example 2.8. the drag force diagram shown in exibit 2.8a is STILL wrong and wrong the same way. Now look at the beam splice component of this problem shown in the two different texts, in the version where it is Ex.4.5 the author neglects to use the overstrength factor. This is contrary to what is called for in ASCE 7 12.10.2.1 which explicicitly states that all collector elements and their connectors must use the Overstrength factor case. However in the text where it is example 2.8 the author correctly uses the over strength factor for the beam splice requirement. He gets even more confusing as he proceeds to use the overstrenth factor to design the brace it self but does not do so in the text where this same problem is Ex 3.5. This is just one of the numerous issues I have encountered with these texts and I am extremely dissatasfied with Kaplan and Alan Willams and I am not sure who is more to blame. On one hand Alan Willams wrote these crappy books but on the other it seems like Kaplan dosen't hire editors. Seriously how do you have two books written by the same guy sold as a package deal by the same company which publishes and edits both of them AND still have issues with contradictory information. Also lets just forget all about the fact that these texts repeat 75-80 percent of their content so right there Kaplan sold almost twice the number of books right off the bat.
