The Most Realistic Practice for the SE Exam

16-Hour Structural Engineering (SE) Practice Exam for Buildings contains two 40-problem, multiple-choice breadth exams and two four-essay depth exams consistent with the NCEES SE exam’s format and specifications. The two morning breadth sections (vertical forces and lateral forces) and the two afternoon depth sections (vertical forces and lateral forces) prepare you for all four components of the exam.

Consistent with the actual exam, the multiple-choice problems in 16-Hour Structural Engineering (SE) Practice Exam for Buildings require an average of six minutes to solve, and the essay problems can be solved in one hour. Enhance your time-management skills by taking each exam section within the same four-hour time limit as the actual exam. The solutions to the depth exams’ essay problems use blue text to identify the information you will be expected to include in your exam booklet to receive full credit. The supplemental content uses black text to enhance your understanding of the solution process. Comprehensive step-by-step solutions for all problems demonstrate accurate and efficient problem-solving approaches. Solutions also frequently refer to the codes and references adopted by NCEES to help you determine which resources you’ll likely use on exam day.
