    ILLINOIS (NEW UPDATE)!!!

    My license number was posted yesterday! For reference, I mailed my application around June 7th. So it took about 6 weeks. Now to get the physical license and frame it with this damn pencil.

    MD&M practice problem of the week

    Lol I actually did better in thermo and heat transfer than statics and dynamics in school. Using machine design stuff at work over the last 6 years helped keep the basics relatively fresh in my head and made studying easier. On another note, finally got my license number today great start to a vacation week.

    New Jersey License Numbers Out

    The board does not control the distribution of the actual license. You should have gotten letter from board with your number so you can order seal. Physical licenses are issued from Trenton, not Newark.

    For Those Who Didn't Pass

    I feel for anyone that didn't get this horrendous test behind them - I was somehow blessed on this one. I must say thought that it was definitely the most 'grueling' test I've ever taken, and I've taken a lot - some with good results and some not. My list includes: GRE (good, but I only need a good math score to get into a Computer MS program), GMAT (marginal, qualifying me for a 'low end' business school), CISSP (very good, but it was not that challenging since I had many years in the field as a consultant), PMP (felt unprepared at the last minute so I didn't show up for the tests and never tried again), and recently FE/PE (much more difficult that I would have ever imagined but somehow passed - I should not have waited 25-years to start those). I have learned however, by staying focused on my objective that anything is possible. In addition to my PE and CISSP, I've earned a Masters in Computer Science (with honors), and my MBA. As the metaphoric song 'I Hope You Dance' (by Lee Ann Womack) speaks the important message that people should always put yourself out there and never hesitate to try for a dream, I focus and push hard. I will soon go back to the PMP exam just to 'kick it in the ass' .

    New Jersey License Numbers Out

    Consider yourselves lucky - compared to what we across the river in New York are going through. It been more than 8-weeks since the scores have been released by NCEES and only about 25% of the licenses have been issued. When I called them yesterday to inquire further, they claimed that they only got the upload from NCEES three weeks ago. To quote a line Mary Steenburgen had in the original version of the movie 'Time after Time' (1979) - "A bigger crock of shit I never heard!" By the way, in the movie 'Back to the Future III' (1990), she used similar words with Doc when he tried to say he was a time traveler - " I've heard some whoppers? in my time but that tops them all." I guess the girl attracts time travelers than decided they have too much baggage, huh.

    New York License Watch April 2018

    I agree - they've put us to shame. It hits me even harder since I work for 'another' State agency.

    I "need" my NY License number

    Unfortunately our Legislature and Governor fully support everything the State workers do, and how they do it - at least those that are experts in shrugging work - since they (and their families) are guaranteed votes for the Party in power.
