Re: 2010 Structural Engineering Review Seminars in Los Angeles and San Francisco

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I was in the same review seminar with Mr. Yang.  It was the best investment for me in passing the California SE exam on my first attempt.  This was a good thing because I was seriously considering a career change immediately following the exam...

Ben assembles a top notch group of lecturers for each session.  It is geared toward folks prepping for the SE exam.

I attended Ben's seminar 6 years ago, and I could not agree more with Steve's comment.  Highly recommended, even if you are not planning on taking the SE exam, it was great for self-enrichment.

I attended Ben's seminar last year, and it truly was one of the best educational/practical events I can remember. 

We met, listened to, and interacted with people whom most of as only know from the textbooks and handbooks they wrote on the most important aspects of practical structural engineering (concrete, steel, dynamics, seismic, wind, etc.).  Among others, we had a chance to meet one of the main OSHPD professionals not in a usual root-canal-like plancheck situation.  That gentleman shared with us the invaluable and vast "insider" information on the inner works of OSHPD.      
The value of the seminar is incredible and unsurpassable in both the informational and monetary (cannot beat the price) senses. On top of that, Ben managed to create a home-like, comfortable atmosphere that greatly facilitated productive discussion and efficient learning.

With many thanks to Ben for his hard work, I highly recommend BYA Seminar to all structural engineering professionals.
