    What is the cost difference if you were to change from one material to another in a given area.

    Congrats!

    I'm using Ballast to study and they give relatively detailed information about calculations for different materials (wood, steel concrete) and sizing members, determining connections, etc. Aside from knowing these general concepts and how to do this, is it necessary to know these formulas and calculations?

    Memorizing formulae for sizing those materials is not a good use of your time relative to other modes of studying. I don't mean to suggest that you would never need to use those on an exam, but the question for you isn't "Could I be asked about this in an NCARB exam ite?," but rather "Would memorizing these get me the most extra questions correct over the next hour of studying?" The answer to that second question is no. Good luck on the exams!--Michael Ermann, Amber Book creator.
