California PE Surveying

Recommended Posts

Guys,

I took the Cal Surverying last October and didnt make it. I did all the problems in the Coumo book and the 120 problem book (from the other board). I however found all the questions to be very different (and difficult). I found the exam problems to be more real time based whereas in the study material they are theory (or trignometry) based. I am a Structural engineer and I have been out of school for 4+ years now. Can you please recommend any other material that would explain things clearly? A cut off of 183 means the exam was relatively easier. What went wrong??

Appreciate your time. Thanks.

I heard the same kind of comments from others who had taken survey in Oct. They told me there were lot more calculations involved particluarly with traverses and angles which none of the books covered well.

I would like to hear from someone who took the test and found a GOOD book to cover these.
