Your first option should be to borrow one from another engineer.  Surely
SOMEONE in your office has a copy you can borrow?

Also, older building codes enforced in some jurisdictions still require the
older design codes.  For example, the 1997 UBC references ASCE 7-95, and the
2000 IBC references ASCE 7-98.  You may NEED the older codes depending on
where your projects are located and what type of structures you design.

Subject: NCEES Structural II / California SE exam References

For those of you who took the NCEES Structural II / California SE exam:
The list of standards for the NCEES Structural II exam includes the ACI,
ASCE, NDS, etc. codes, and they were specified by NCEES with the code
year.   For example, ASCE-7 is 1998, ACI 530 is to be the 1999 edition. 
Since I do not have ASCE-7 98 and ACI 530 (1999), I guess I need to buy
them.  I don't have the latest edition neither, the ASCE7-02 and ACI530
-02.  It seems kind of waste if I have to buy an earlier version of the code
just for the exam.  I don't suppose I have any choice on that?
Also, the PCI design handbook - 1999, listed in NCEES exam standards, how
useful is that for the exam?
Thanks for any comments.
