RE: good engineering dictionary and p.e. advice

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Can't help you on the scientific dictionary, but I'll give you whatever advice I can.
If you're taking the SE 1:
Study bridge design if you haven't yet.  There was a lot more of it on the test than I thought there would have been.  Also, know how to get center of rigidity for a diaphragm and how to transfer all of the lateral forces to whatever lateral load resisting system you've got.  Know ASCE 7 ('02, I believe) inside and out:  Snow load, wind load and seismic - and what factors and load combinations to use for each.

Subject: good engineering dictionary and p.e. advice



I’m looking for a good engineering or scientific dictionary – any recommendations? This would be for everyday use, but also for the P.E. exam in April.

Also, does anyone have advice for a first-timer taking the exam?


Thanks, Jen
