    Emily,

    While I don't have video suggestions for you, Architect's Studio Companion is amazing for "easy to understand structural system basics and when to use what kind of system."  They have a great summary page in the front of each chapter that specifically addresses this type of thing - when a two-way concrete system should be used, when steel is best, etc.  It gives you several criteria that are typically encountered on projects and identifies which systems work best to satisfy it.  Same with MEP systems as well.  I recommend checking it out.

    Emily, 

    I would say David i correct about reading ASC for structural systems would be the best start point. But I have watched these videos for basic structural knowledge and it has helped me reinforce my understanding. These are channels which deals with various basics so I would suggest you to give all of them a try but not go too deep into them because the exam tests your knowledge to make the best decision in deciding the structural system but doesn't test your structural design skill set .   

    • DartmouthX - The Engineering of Structures Around Us

    • ARE Structural Systems

    • Amber Book

    • Spoon Feed Me   (Look for popular videos)

    • Civil Engineering Academy

    Hope these help.

    If you can find Dilip Khatri videos they were helpful as well. Dartmouth X was good and then many, many engineer videos from our friends in India and Pakistan. The good thing is there are a ton of guys and gals from this part of the world who do a very good job in explaining structural systems.

    It helps if you search something in particular like "one way and two way concrete slab" or "construction joints vs isolation joints" or "structural frame systems, braced shear and moment" that way you can learn specifics rather than the broad strokes.

    Good luck

    Nicholas, 

     Dilip Khatri's  videos have been made private so we are not able to access them. Please let us know if you get to find them.

    I thought that might be the case, when I restudied for my PPD retake I couldn't find them. That is a shame he was good at explaining the shear and moment diagram stuff.... Now that I think about it though there is another guy who is probably even better at teaching it.. Dr. Jeff Hanson..
