I recently failed the gravity portion of the structural exam. I believe I misunderstood as to what one portion of one of the afternoon problems was asking and thus missed a "critical" design check. However, I was wondering, does anyone have theories as to what the bread and butter of the afternoon exam is? I'm assuming that bending AND shear will be asked on each problem - thus if for some reason you didn't calculate shear on a particular problem you'd know to double check your answers on the problems? Also, in general does anyone have advice for second time takers of the exam?
I took the Power PE Exam in October 2011. Unfortunately I did not pass so I am preparing to retake the test in April 2012. This forum is to discuss any study materials that would be helpful for the test. Books, websites, notes from work...anything that helps would be great! This forum can also be used to post questions about all things relating to the PE Power exam: questions about specific sample questions or hard to understand concepts are all welcomed!
