RE: California SE exam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Scott,

 

Thanks!

 

No, I already have PE.

This is a recent change.  Few years ago one had to take 16 hour California test (CBC reference code)

Now it is required to pass 8 hour National (IBC reference code) test which includes general structural analysis and design; and 8 hour California Seismic (CBC reference code)

Do you mean the Seismic exam for the CA PE or do you mean the state specific exam (which to my knowledge is NOT "seismic only" along though it will certainly cover seismic stuff) portion for your CA SE?  Those are two COMPLETELY different animals.

I am preparing for California SE exam (Seismic portion only).  I passed the National portion in April which was based on IBC 06.

I have Seismic and Wind Forces Structural Design Examples 3rd edition by Alan Williams,updated to IBC 2006.

Is there any similar guide/reference available with CBC 07 reference?

 

Thanks!
