Overview

The Structural Engineering Reference Manual is the most comprehensive reference and study guide available for engineers preparing for the NCEES Structural I and Structural II exams and the California state structural exam. Nearly 40 practice problems with step-by-step solutions help sharpen your problem solving skills and demonstrate how to arrive at solutions most efficiently. Numerous charts, tables, and figures make it possible to work most exam problems using just the Reference Manual. A complete, easy-to-use index will save you valuable time during the exam when it helps you to quickly locate important information needed to solve problems.

The structural PE exams require a thorough familiarity with relevant codes, and the Structural Engineering Reference Manual, Fourth Edition, is updated to the latest exam code specifications. The updated codes include 2005 edition of AISC, 2005 edition of NDS, 2005 editions of ACI 318 and ACI 530/ASCE 5/TMS 402, 2004 edition of AASHTO, 2005 edition of ASCE 7, 2006 edition of IBC. The Structural Engineering Reference Manual is part of PPI's best-selling exam review series, used by more than 1 million engineers to prepare for their licensing exams.
