    16-Hour Structural Engineering (SE) Practice Exam for Buildings is a complete, 16-hour practice exam that prepares you for the Structural SE exam. It mimics the SE exam in terms of topics covered, problem level of difficulty, codes and standards referenced, and overall exam format. Like the SE exam, both the vertical and lateral components are organized into a morning breadth and an afternoon depth module. Each breadth module contains 40 multiple-choice problems, and each depth module contains 4 essay response problems, for a total of 88 exam-like problems. Completing the problems within each module’s allotted four hours will prepare you for the SE exam’s pace and duration.

    Comprehensive step-by-step solutions for all problems illustrate accurate and efficient solving methods. The multiple-choice breadth modules also include complete answer keys so you can quickly determine a problem’s correct answer. The essay response afternoon depth modules make use of blue text to call out the text, calculations, and drawings you are expected to include in your exam booklet. Black explanations, calculations, and drawings provide supportive information to further describe a solution’s methodology.

    With an average of six minutes to solve each SE exam multiple-choice problem, efficiency is vital to your success. Six-Minute Solutions for Structural Engineering (SE) Exam Morning Breadth Problems will help you quickly identify accurate solution procedures, effectively apply exam-adopted codes and standards, and increase your problem solving speed.

    These practice problems will familiarize you with the multiple-choice format, difficulty, and subject matter of the four-hour morning breadth exams for both lateral and vertical forces. Later force problems focus on wind and earthquake loads, and vertical force problems address loads due to gravity. Problems illustrate a range of structural engineering exam topics, including structural analysis of bridges and buildings, design and detailing of structures, and construction administration.

    All problems include hints to help you jumpstart your solutions. Comprehensive, step-by-step solutions illustrate efficient and accurate solution approaches. Solutions also describe common errors that lead to incorrect answers. The codes and standards adopted by NCEES are referenced throughout.
