    Timber Design for the Civil and Structural PE Exams (CSTB7), 7th Edition

    Timber Design for the Civil and Structural PE Exams is a comprehensive study guide that uses the inductive teaching method to help readers apply the ASD/LRFD national Design Specifications to realistic problem scenarios, and understand the design theories the solving methods are based on. Design examples and scenario-based practice problems will help you apply what you learn, whether you are preparing for the Civil PE or Structural Engineering (SE) exams, are a student in a timber design course, or are a practicing engineer.

    Fair Review by Chris
    Overall
    I did not find this of any use. A discipline specific option would be better. (Posted on 2/20/13)

    Glad to have this resource Review by Sandra
    Overall
    Preparing to take the SE exam for the second time, I am glad to have more resources available than the first time around. Working to make this attempt much more successful than the previous. A comprehensive study guide for the SE written by Michael Lindeburg would be like a gift from heaven. (Posted on 12/17/12)
