RE: Need Practical Mechanics of Matl's/Structural Analysis Book

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You are correct, I took the Civil PE with the structural section, not the SE
I exam.  I wish I had been given the option of taking the SE I in leiu of
the Civil PE as some states allow, but that is not how WA (or many states
for that matter) works.  Here, the SE I is the first step in obtaining the
SE, not a way to get a PE.  Ask me about the SE I again in 6 months and I
will be able to tell you more...

Sounds like you took the Civil PE exam.  I plan to take the structural.  So,

I think I may run into something a bit more involved - but I don't know.
