Welcome to Seismic Design Review

Seismic Design Review (SDR) provides civil engineering candidates the most comprehensive products to help them effectively prepare for the two and one-half hour Special Civil Seismic Principles portion of the California Civil Professional Engineers Examination.

For over 23 years the SDR seminars and workbook have been helping candidates prepare for the Special Civil P.E. exam. As the Special Civil Seismic Principles Exam passing statistics show, SDR seminar participants have twice the exam passing rate of those who have taken the exam without SDR's help.
