Howdy. Our company is requiring the heads of the survey department to crack knuckles and study for the TX exam. Would someone point me in the right direction as to which study materials I’ll need?

Currently, I’m looking at thishttps://tsps.site-ym.com/store/ListProducts.aspx?catid=398037&p=0 ..and I have no idea where to begin. The book called ‘Decisions’ is definitely one that I’ll need.'"> link.

Start at the TBPLS website and have some experience being in charge of actual surveys in Texas.
😉

BTW, your link does not show an actual website on my screen, kinda suspicious.......

Good Luck, Texas is the only state that I am Licensed in that when I took the test that the Board would not give a book list.
Since i have heard the State test called the Ken Gold test I would look for any articles and text by him.

If you can get a hold of one, they do a short course down in Corpus and the book that goes along with it is a good "cliff notes" sized refresher. Very condensed, but helped me a lot.
