I can guarantee you will see it if you take the structural I exam.

		One really good book that the "kids" in my office seem to
rave about, is
		"Bridge Engineering" by Demetrios Tonias. It is written and
presented in a
		very entertaining, graphics-intensive style, yet conveys a
surprising amount
		of hard information for something that looks like it could
have been
		published by the "Time-Life" book series.

		Oh, and I think you can relax about the possibility that you
will see such a
		problem on a Texas P.E. exam, unless you're taking the
Structural portion.
