    Florida License Numbers

    It still looks like they are all, or at least the vast majority, not FL residents so I don't believe these have anything to do with new PE's from April test. Not stressful like waiting for results but more annoying! Haha

    PE Exam Prep vs. Grad School

    I'm currently finishing up the program at Kansas State. I've had a pretty good experience and would say it's worth the money I'm paying for it (which is nothing due to company reimbursement) But in all seriousness they have been great to work with and have been very accommodating of my work schedule, can't recommend them enough.

    Yeah I had to wait till Friday to get it mailed. They haven't added any new numbers since June 15th. They are usually fairly quick to process renewals etc, usually a couple days. So they must be doing the big batch now. I'm hoping today!

    EET-SE Review

    Add me to the list of satisfied EET customers! After a second close but unsuccessful attempt at the building lateral exam I decided to bite the bullet and shell out the money for a review course to try getting me over the hump. As others have stated, there are more than enough practice problems included (something that I'd had trouble finding previously) and also very detailed lectures. One of the great things about this course is if a lecture is running long they will just schedule an additional lecture so no material is breezed over. This resulted in some weeks being much longer than expected but this was a good problem to have. Both instructors are incredibly knowledgeble on the subject matter and are always available to answer questions and provide feeback. I would 100% recommend this course to anyone taking the test. Although I brought some study material from previous attempts, all I used on test day was the course binder and the required references.

    Ever since I finished the basement I am having home improvement withdrawals, I find myself going to Home Depot at 7 AM on a Saturday, but don't remember how I got there or what I need to buy?

    @Szar Or NC State πŸ˜‰ Obviously I don't have experience anywhere else, but NC State has a really great setup for distance students.

    Thankfully this isn't too bad. About a foot long discolored/blistered area right where the wall meets the ceiling, and then about a 3" circumference of the same right around the perimeter of the smoke alarm. I guess I may as well use it as an opportunity to fix the terrible drywall job in that hallway while I'm at it. Bad tape job and nail pops everywhere.

    i took a pano to try to show the whole room because the door location is funny. there's a builtin in the dining room on the other side of the wall on the left (so it pushes into the laundry), and there are nooks on either side that the built shelf extends back into in the back, and another right next to the door on the left. i painted my ledgers last night and put the shelves in this morning! WOO

    TJ- Looking Good! (Is that a narrow wall to the left or just a weird angle photo?) Supe- when our toilet exploded over the kitchen most of the water came down through a can light, I delayed fixing the ceiling right up until we moved and just before we listed the house for sale I put in one of those large rectangular fluorescent kitchen light (things) in its place to cover up all the damaged sheetrock- I never fixed the ceiling - but was just glad the home inspector for the buyers never figured out why we had can lights everywhere except over the sink / bar area!

    I got my letter on June 11 as well, had the check in the mail on June 12... and radio silence. I'm getting antsy.

    PE Exam Prep vs. Grad School

    Nope. Why would any one university take the time to generate list with other competitive degree options? An independent 3rd party maybe. But then that would literally involve researching each and every institution to see what options they offer. I think you're better off targeting a few select programs which have a good reputation and participant feedback, like Michigan Tech.

    EET-SE Review

    I wanted to add to the recommendations for the EET course! It was by far the best learning experience I've had. I took the School of PE courses for both vertical and lateral for my first attempt at the exam in April 2017. I thought the courses were decent. Along with supplemental studying, the SoPE courses got me to the "borderline" point and I failed vertical (barely - 27/40, A, A, A, U) passed lateral (likely also barely). I then took the EET vertical course for my second attempt at the exam. The EET course was far, far superior! I thought the course prepared me incredibly well, and I felt confident both going into and coming out of the exam. (Of course that confidence wore off after 2 months of waiting for results and I was suddenly very worried about results, but I think that's how it goes for most people.) I was able to pass the vertical exam this past April (2018) despite the 18% pass rate for repeat takers. I think the biggest item that sets the EET course apart is the amount of quality practice problems you receive - especially since there aren't a ton of practice exams out there. EET provides hundreds of HW problems, several mini-exams, and a full length practice exam. I supplemented the EET course only with additional long answer problems from the two available practice exams. I thought the EET course was very intense and time consuming. I was able to keep up with the vertical course, but I am curious if anyone else has had success trying to keep up with both the vertical and lateral courses at the same time. If so, what was your approach/did you start early with on-demand?

    I applied for reciprocity in NY. They cashed my check on January 29th and I'm still waiting on a license 5 months later. I've called twice and they're always nice but all they can tell me is that my application is with the engineering board.

    Home Improvement/Repair Questions

    Well, caught-ish. I'm going to have to do paint/drywall repair in two small spots upstairs from the looks of it. He ended up having to use the full size nitrogen bottle to clear the line out, the little CO2 cartridge they usually use wouldn't do it. He said there was oil in the water and the refrigerant was low, so we know there is a leak in there somewhere too (which pisses me off, because it's basically been leaking since within a year of original installation). They're coming back to do another dye pack, but at least the drain is clear and the refrigerant is topped. He made a note that neither float switch worked, so they'll have to fix that too on their own dime.
