What does it NOT include?
While the information in the booklet is transferrable and usable for all questions, this guidance book focuses on Question 3, the bridge question.
Also note: The guidance in this booklet does not attempt to teach you how to become a structural engineer! There is no substitute for hard-won, real-world knowledge, but the exam tips and advice we provide can help you to demonstrate your knowledge effectively, and allow you to reach your full potential on exam day. The exam is like no other you will have taken, so effective preparation is key.
