    Sha,

    Building Construction Illustrated has a section on fasteners (bolts and nails) which I found helpful. If your test asked you about a specific kind of bolt, there is a ton of information out there if you google it. For example, this one was good. https://www.boltdepot.com/fastener-information/type-chart.aspx

    The book Fundamentals of Building Construction Materials and Methods has some good sections on that.

    Thank you @ Kristen, I will check that section of BCI out. And thank you for the link. It seems to have a good amount of information. I will spend some time on that too. Thanks!

    @Darguin, thank you for your reply. I don’t have that book. Is there a free PDF online? Or I have to buy it? It seems a little pricy tho. I will try to ask my firm to see if they have it in the library. Thank you for the advice.

    No unfortunately as I have a copy from school.

    Looks like one of the earlier editions is available on Amazon for $27

    Alternatively, I can take pictures/scan the relevant sections on bolts when I go in to work on Monday. (I left my copy at work)

    Thank you so much Kristen, I can buy the earlier edition. It is very nice of you to offer scan the relevant sections. I Just don’t know if the earlier edition has the same or similar content as the new ones. Do you know? If so, I can get the earlier edition .

    The link I posted is to the edition that I have. I doubt they added a lot of new things. Maybe someone else will chime in. But as long as you are using a couple different primary sources, it’s not something I would worry about too much.
