The entire series is 34 hours and 15 minutes long. That is a LOT of video. That is more video than his 4.0 SD, BS, SS & BDCS combined. Objective 1.2, which is MEP, is around 9 hours long. Objective 1.3, which is structural systems, is around 7 hours long. The rest of Sections 2, 3, 4 & 5 take about 14 hours all together.

I am about 1/3 the way through. I have jumped around a bit because I wanted to spend my weekend doing 1.2 and 1.3. I just finished 1.2 and I will be doing 1.3 tomorrow.

The NCARB description of Objective 1.2: "Determine the size of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems and components to meet project goals. You must also be aware of related building systems to identify and develop mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, including calculating the size of some system components, based on system type, system requirements, programmatic requirements, and other factors."

Sizing systems is mentioned twice in that description. Here's the thing. After 9 hours of studying, I don't know anything more about sizing MEP systems that I did before I started. I'm going to be honest here, I started off knowing pretty much nothing about sizing MEP systems. I know to leave 8" above the ceiling for lights. I typically leave 24" for my mechanical engineer for ductwork. I typically leave about 24" for structure for the ~30' spans I usually work with, and hope for it to come out at 21". That is what I went in knowing. I don't know how to size a duct. I don't know how to size a mechanical system. I don't know how to size a supply or waste pipe. I don't know how to size a wire for a certain capacity.

I think maybe that's not good?

I will give you an update after I go through 1.3 tomorrow and let you know if I can size a column or a truss.
