Comprehensive Coverage for the SE Structural Engineering Exam The SE Structural Engineering Reference Manual prepares you for the NCEES SE structural engineering exam. It provides a comprehensive review of structural analysis and design methods related to vertical and lateral forces. All exam topics are covered, and exam-adopted codes and standards are frequently referenced. You will learn how to apply concepts by reviewing the 270 example problems, and you will strengthen your problem-solving skills by working the 50 end-of-chapter practice problems. Each problem’s complete solution lets you check your own solving approach. Access to supportive information is just as important as knowledge and problem-solving efficiency. The SE Structural Engineering Reference Manual’s thorough index easily directs you to the codes and concepts you will need during the exam. Cross references to more than 700 equations, 60 tables, 250 figures, 8 appendices, and relevant codes will point you to additional support material when you need it.
