Strucutures Fail

Postby spatialpractice_36 » Sun Aug 13, 2017 5:28 pm

Found out that I failed structures. According to my Exam Report, I was Level 1 in General Structures, Lateral Forces, and the Vignette. I was Level 2 in Seismic and Wind. Any recommendations on what I could study to help me get a better understanding of Seismic and Wind?

Did you read "Buildings at Risk" for Seismic and Wind Forces?

No, I didn't. Is there anything specific that I should focus on when reading these two documents?

Thanks,

You can download the documents from here:

I can't really tell you about the specifics. You can really get anything from here on the exam.

Once you read through them, certain things will jump out at you.

Just read them - don't memorize them.

Since you already took the exam, you may have already had some WTF questions - maybe they were from here and this will clarify those areas for you.

Definitely read those. I got 2's on my first test and didn't read either. I got a 1 in Seismic on test 2 after reading BAR Seismic and a 3 on Wind when I still didn't read BAR Wind. I see the problem here...:/

Got my Pass this morning. I think the key to all of these tests is ding as many practice test questions that you can. And for Structures, absolutely read both BAR.
