Userut Conversion Factors B. As noted in previous editions, my motivation co begin this book was the lack of any detailed test plans idencifying whac knowledge was necessary for compecent entry-level civil engineering practice in the area of seismic principles. In , ic was very interesting and inspiring for me to observe the examination test plan developing and changing. To the fullesc excenc possible, the plan iden- tifies che necessary tasks and knowledge relaced co seismic principles.

Tam delighted wich che tese plan, as well as overwhelmed by the task of making sure that my book adequately covers all of the seismic principles areas for entry-level civil viii engineers.

The organization and purpose of this edicion are similar to the firse edition, but the fourth edition conforms to the provisions of the CBC.

In addition, a great effore was made to offer this edition in both English and SI units: ic has been rewritten in its entirety to provide you a choice of units.

Tam proud to serve the needs of civil engineers with my work. This new edition is offered to the user in the same spirit as were che earlier editions— to make a contribution so the goals of public safety in the evenc of an earthquake. I am also grateful to Michael R.

The test plan lists che examination content in cerms of entry-level civil engineering tasks and knowledge statements. You should answer all the questions, selecting only the best correct answer.

Mark only one answer to each question. Record your xiv answers in the official, compurer-teadable solution booklet. Credit will not be given for questions worked out or answered only in the official cese booklet as oppased co the solution booklec.

You will be given ewo and a half hours to complete chis exam. The cotal points will not be evenly distributed among the questions; chey will vary from one question to another depending on the significance, difficulty, and complexity of each question. The official test booklet will stare the preliminary poine values assigned co each question. To be successful, in addition to demonstrating your understanding of sismic principles and fundamencal earchquake engineering, you must manage your time well during the testing period.

This will requite you tp he more focused during the exam chan you were during your study periods, As mentioned, the exam consists af about 50 questions thar must be answered in owo and a half hours, or minutes. A quick calculation based on these numbers shows that you have, on che average, three minutes per question To make efficienc use of your time, tackle the questions in this order: 1. Answer questions that can be answered immediately. Some questions may require minimal calculations, 2. Answer questions chat you fecl confident about bur that may require more cime for calculations 3.

Answer guestians about which you have doubts bur far witich you know where to find relevant information in your books, references, ar notes. Answer all remaining questions by guessing. Hf you complete she exam with time to spare, recheck your calculations and answers.
