    Compact and Useful Resource That Covers Most of the Exam Plus Test Taking Strategies Review by Amazon.com Customer
    This is a comprehensive reference to the SE Exam - not only does it cover a range of multiple choice questions you are likely to encounter on the actual exam, there are also several practice essay problems that question you in-depth on building codes, rules and regulations, and other design issues. In addition to offering a practice exam that follows NCEES SE exam's format, the author includes some useful strategies to identify and quickly solve problems. Though this section could have offered more suggestions, overall this is an excellent resource to use in preparing for the exam. (Posted on 7/30/2015)
