Rajenndra ?


I thought that the books that PPI sells were a good reference.  I used the Surveying Principles, 120 Solved Surveying Problems, and Civil Surveying books and I thought the books were an accurate study guide for the test.  I was weaker on surveying than I was on seismic, so I got all three.

As far as seismic is concerned, PPI also sells a very good basic book, Seismic Design of Building Structures, but I would also recommend Farzad Naem?s Seismic Design Handbook.

Subject: Recommendation for Special CE Exam



In order to get registered as a PE in California, I am required to take the Special CE examination. It covers topics in seismic design and civil surveys. My examination is scheduled in October 09. I would like to study one or two books which would cover all the subjects in the examination.

Please make recommendations. Thanks.
