 Seismic Review Webinar            course# 7000W
 Thursday, February 11, 2010, 3 to 5 PM EST.                               Presented by Terry Weigel
 ASCE’s Seismic Review webinar will help you prepare for the California Structural Engineer Seismic
 Examination and the P. E. Civil and P.E. Structural I Exams. The webinar will cover seismic aspects of the
 California Building Code and the 2006 International Building Code (IBC).             $349M / $399NM
 Discounted fees for Seismic Review Webinar if also registered for P.E. Civil or
 P.E. Structural I Review Course:                                                      $249M / $299NM



What others are saying...
 “The course was very helpful. It was a way to force myself to get a study schedule going and
  expose myself to the proper material and problems to prepare for the exam.”

  “I thought it was very good for preparation. It would have been impossible to cover
   everything but it kept me on a schedule with a good pace.”

 “Reminded me of what I need to review. Instructors identified what would be in morning
  session versus afternoon session. More time can be spent on concentration this way.”

 “The course helped me in subjects I am less familiar with, such as structural analysis, strength
  of materials, geometric design, and construction.

 “Overall, the course helped get me in the "studying" frame of mind again and helped refresh
  old topics.”


How do the Live Review Courses on the web work? We use transmission over the web and                            5
teleconferencing to make the course a live and interactive experience. Participants will be able to ask the
instructors questions and get real time answers. Practice problems will be worked through during each
session. Each site leader will receive course materials to download prior to each session, as well as log-in
information for viewing the instructor’s presentation during each class.

   P.E. Exam Review Online/CD Course
   Provides Online/CD-ROM access for 1 year from date of initial purchase                          $595M/$695NM
   In cooperation with the Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section (BSCES), ASCE and SmartPros have created
   this multimedia electronic learning course to help you prepare for the P.E. Exam. The course features seven
   of the nation’s top civil engineering instructors. This is not a teaching course, it’s a review course, a refresher,
   and this is reflected in its design. The topics are divided into modules, each presenting a series of problems in
   the format you will encounter them on the P.E. Exam. The course materials conform to the current P.E. Exam
   format and content, and now include the printed Construction Supplement, which covers theory and practice
   problems with step-by-step solutions for the practice problems.
   The course starts with a demonstration exam problem. You can call on as much or as little help as you need
   to solve this problem, including getting the instructor (in video or audio) to walk you through the problem
   step-by-step. You will progress to a practice problem with minimal help available. Finally, you’ll take a post-test,
   where you’ll be on your own. Of course, the beauty of this type of electronic learning is that should you fail the
   post-test, you can simply go back and review the module again, then re-take the post-test.
   Course Topics: Construction Engineering; Geotechnical Engineering; Hydraulics & Hydrology; Sanitary and
   Environmental Engineering; Structures; and Transportation. Additional resources are included to help you
   prepare for Economics and Surveying questions.                                                       P03
   *Please note, the P.E. Construction Supplement (CE08) is included when you order this product



   P.E. Civil Engineering Construction Supplement:

   This printed supplement is a review course for the Construction portion of the Civil Engineering P.E. Exam.
   It includes theory and practice problems with step-by-step solutions for the practice problems. Module
   topics include: Site Design, Piles, Concrete Formwork, Concrete Mix Design, Construction Control and Safety,
   Stability of Temporary Cuts, Network Scheduling, Project Controls, Engineering Economics, Management of
   Construction Projects, Construction Contracts, and Construction Estimating.                            CE08

   Provides Online/CD-ROM access for 1 year from date of initial purchase                         $299M/$349NM
   The F.E. Exam is a tough exam. The best way to prepare for this day-long exam is to study the relevant materials
   and then Practice! Practice! Practice! This course contains 12 modules presented by a ‘virtual instructor’. Listen
   and watch just as you would in the classroom. At the end of each section, test your skills. When you have
   studied the material and you are ready to try taking an actual timed practice exam, just click on “Practice Exam”
   and start your timer.
   ASCE’s F.E. Exam Review Course contains multimedia presentations on twelve sections using interactive
   quizzes, audio, and animated slides. The material is presented in an interesting storyline, aimed specifically
   at the topics most likely to be tested on the F.E. Exam. Each section contains multiple-choice problems and
   answers and includes over 10 hours of course content. Students can hone their skills by timing themselves
   on dynamically generated practice tests, which can be taken over and over again to sharpen test-taking skills
   right up to the exam. The practice tests are immediately scored so students can monitor their progress and
   measure their improvement.
   Course modules: Precalculus Math and Calculus; Chemistry: Stoichiometry, Reactions, Organic; Material
   Science: Crystals, Phase Diagrams, Heat Treatment; Ethics and Economics; Thermodynamics: Process, Cycles,
   Applications; Fluid Mechanics: Hydrostatics, Dynamics, Friction; Statics: Force Diagrams, Structures, Centroids,
   Beams, Machines; Dynamic: Kinematics, Angular Momentum; Strength of Materials: Stress/Strain, Beam
   Deflection; Electric Circuits; Automatic Control Theory.                                                    Y27
