The Seismic Design Review Workbook

Seismic Design Review Workbook

2018 IBC/2019 CBC & ASCE 7-16 version

This workbook will be applicable to ALL testing quarters of the 2023 (i.e., Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4) CA civil seismic principles (CSP) exam.

NOW back in-stock! Workbooks typically ship same day and arrive in 2 to 3 business days using USPS Priority Mail.

This comprehensive workbook has been proven to be one of the most effective tools available to help prepare for, and refer to when taking the California Civil PE Special Seismic Principles Examination.

Although most effective when used with one of our Live Seminars, or along with the Live Webinars or On-Demand Options, the workbook has been used successfully on its own by California Civil PE candidates as a study guide and a valuable reference during the exam itself.

The SDR Workbook is divided into the following 5 parts:

  • Part 1 - Lecture Notes
  • Part 2 - 23 Example Problems (with comprehensive solutions)
  • Part 3 - 456 Multiple Choice Problems
    (similar to exam format)
  • Part 4 - Solutions to Multiple Choice Problems
  • Part 5 - Definitions, Notations, Tables, TWO - 55 question Sample Exams, Sample Exam Solutions, and Index
