[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Ben Yousefi's manual is a great help and the price is not bad. It's called
"Structural Engineering Review Manual". Contact:

My copy is dated 1996, so the phone numbers should still be current.

Try the S.E design manual by Ben yossifi.  It is the best way for you to
prepare for the exam.  It has great information and good solutions.  Don't
get bogged with too many references, you have enough codes to carry to the
exam as it is.  Study hard and good luck.
