ABOUT THIS BOOK

Seismic Principles Practice Exams contains two practice exams with problems that follow the multiplechoice format and the scope of topics on the California civil seismic principles exam. Like the actual exam, each practice exam contains 55 multiple-choice problems. The problems are similar in difficulty and complexity to actual exam problems. The practice exams are designed to be taken in the same length of time as the exam (i.e., two and a half hours). To simulate the flagging function on the CBT exam, the answer sheets in this book also include a flag icon that you can use to identify the problems you want to come back to. Answer keys allow you to quickly score your exams, and complete solutions allow you to review and compare your own solving processes to identify errors and learn efficient solving approaches. Solutions and answer options are presented in customary U.S. units, with SI units provided where applicable.

This book uses the 2012 IBC and the 2010 ASCE/SEI7 when referencing code provisions in problems and solutions, unless a more stringent statutory requirement exists. (For example, Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations requires that schools and hospitals be operational after an earthquake, and this requirement supersedes lesser code requirements.) Since the 2012 IBC contains the same material and section numbers as the 2013 California Building Code (CBC), you may reference either the 2012 IBC or the 2013 CBC.
