Structures Re-Take Take II

Postby AbrahamNR » Mon Sep 04, 2017 10:43 pm

So I am about to start studying for my 3rd stab at structures. This is my last test and I just wanna get it over with. Any advice? The first time I bombed the vignette and got a level 2 on laterals. This time I aced the vignette and laterals and got a 2 on everything else. Any advice on what to focus on, what is best to study from FEMA etc is greatly appreciated.

I'm in a similar situation and my 3rd re-take is tomorrow. My first test I got a 3 in general structures, and 2's in wind/seismic. The 2nd time I got a 3 in Wind and a 2 in Lateral. Neither of those tests did I read BAR Wind and I skimmed the FEMA chapters for the 2nd test. I used Coach's video for the vignette on the first 2. I have used Thaddeus videos for all 3. This time, I read BAR Wind (finally) and all of the FEMA chapters. I am also doing as many practice questions as I can out of the 470 Kaplan Q's. I feel that it is helping reinforce some concepts. I'll let you know how it goes!
