Where did you find Ben Yousefi’s SE Review Manual?  Has his been updated to the IBC?  I should probably see if I can get a copy.

Subject: good engineering dictionary and p.e. advice


Hello All-

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 (civil-structural)?
