FS Exam Review

Posted by Brad on Aug 12, 2013 1:10 pm

Looking for an FS Exam Review Course in the New England area or something online?  I would like a multiple week classroom type setting, not the simple 1-2 day reviews offered by most.  Any Suggestions?

Brad,

My suggestion would be that you become a member of your state society. Besides the 1-2 day refresher course there are many seminars throughout each year that are excellent for all including practicing surveyors. Members get email as to when these seminars are available.

The Massachusetts Association of Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers (MALSCE) is offerring a seminar on the National Spatial Reference System and the online positioning service (OPUS) next month. Members of our neighbor state societies are admitted at a member discount. 

I also found that the book from American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ASCM) "Definitions of Surveying and Associated Terms" was useful in the FS examination. Note that ACSM is now NSPS (National Society of Professional Surveyors).

Good luck.
