    Great for PE structural as well! Review by Amazon Customer
    An excellent resource. I purchased as part of my study/resource kit for the civil PE exam: structural afternoon session. It pairs well with the CE Reference Manual, which also has a good structural section. It should be noted that the SERM does not have a lot of the statics/base level structural information that you might be looking for...the SERM assumes that you have a solid working knowledge of determinate and some indeterminate statics. If you don't, the CERM is a good resource to pair with the SERM. (Posted on 2/8/2018)

    Excellent in many different ways Review by Amazon Customer
    Excellent in many different ways. Excellent for SE review but also great for professional practice. Unlike many other study references before, the errors / errata is minimal. At least for what I've studied so far. It's great work! (Posted on 2/8/2018)

    Great Book Review by Amazon Customer
    Best structural design book out there, getting this and the relevant codes, good enough for the PE afternoon. Well, I don't know about the SE yet. A few minor errors but otherwise fine. Just passed the PE and this book had a great role in that. (Posted on 2/8/2018)
