Hi I am taking the exam tomorrow. Not sure if this has been discussed, but do all questions in the case studies have answers that are found in references or are some of them based off principals one might know outside of the test?
Clearly, knowing the code back and forth may help someone answer certain questions without looking at the resources, but in third party material (Specifically Ballast, only about half the questions can be found or abstracted directly from the resources.)
An example of what I'm talking about might be:
Which columns are taking on concentric loads? Is there a table for some of this information?
Which steel type might be used in X example? Is there a table that says A242 (corrosion, high strength) etc. or is one just expected to know this.
This question may seem straight forward, but it does make a difference in how I would approach the case study, whether or not each question can be inferred from the resources?
