  1. Third Printing of ASCE 7-10 is currently used for reference for the exams. I have the first printing only, unfortunately. So I know to print the first Supplement (17 pages; changes to Chapters 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 21, 23, C7), and the expanded seismic commentary (135 pages). But does anyone know if the following as well? Second supplement (two pages) Errata (52 pages, Effectitve March 31, 2013) Errata for Alaska wind speed map updates (7 pages)
  2. Hello all - I was curious if pretty much everyone studies for the SE while still working a full-time 40(+) hour per week job? Did you (or anyone you know) take time off to study, or go to part time for a bit? I know study times significantly vary per person, it was the same for the PE. But I don't know anyone who took time off for PE the SE pretty similar in that sense? I haven't worked in design in a few years so I feel like I'm going to need quite a heavy review in comparison to people actively working in design firms while studying.

  4. I passed my exam on my second attempt. I attribute my exam failure on the first attempt to being unorganized, nervousness, and procrastination. I learned my lessons from my failure and adjusted. This is the best advice I can give to those of you who are studying for the upcoming PE exam: If you have a hard time motivating yourself to study, take a live webinar review course that forces you to attend at certain times. Get good at taking an exam. Take as many timed exams in a mock-exam environment as you can. Be set up as closely to exam day as possible - use a pencil and bubble
  5. We have about 29 days left to go before the exam! How does everyone feel at this point? Have any of you done a mock exam yet? I'll be taking the Civil Structural depth exam and doing my mock exam next weekend.
  6. What are you guys listening to while studying? I didn't want to get used to solving problems in complete silence so I try to have some background noise going. I mainly listen to Spotify study playlists. Needing a break from all the classical music, I've been listening to John Serrie based on someone's comment on the boards (thanks, whoever you are!). There are also Sigur Ros, Mogwai, Mokhov, and some "chill electronic" or instrumental mixes that have been great. When taking the practice exams, I don't listen to music since that won't be possible for the real deal. I let the neighborhood c
  7. I am currently waiting for my state board to approve my PE application. They have already approved me to take the FE. My plan as of now is to take both on the same weekend in April (PE on 4/11, FE on 4/12) so that I only have to study once. My problem is that I really don't know where to begin. First of all, how much time do people typically study? Are there any good resources anyone knows of for making a study plan of which topics to review? Right now, I look at the sample problems and I think to myself, "I probably could have done that in college, but I have no idea how to even approach
