  2. Can someone please explain to me ex.10 in the graffeo EE guide to passing the power PE book? I don't understand how to get 22.78 49.4 degress from Zld = 35(j30)/(35+j30)
  3. Well said Badger. I need to digest your explanation a little longer but I think it is almost making sense to me.
  4. Engineers matter!
  5. As with all my exams, probably 30% of them were wrong. I probably always just barely pass.
  6. Time Left: 1 month and 1 day

  8. Hi, This is becoming interesting problem. I noticed when I studied these take off problems it was always easy make a mistake. I not sure, since I have not seen the original problem, but I think when it says the crew's productivity "Crew productivity is 200ft^2 /LH", it means that the five man crew will paint 200 square feet per labor hour. Which means the crew working together will paint 1000 ft^2 per crew hour. Hence 5 crew hours at $108/hr = $540, or 25 LH (man hour) at $21.60/hr = $540. So I vote for the answer $540. I think the problem was poorly worded, but another way to think about it is how long does it take to paint an 8' by 25' wall? With 3 people painting, a help and supervisor setting thing up, in 8 hours I think they can paint 8000 ft^2, at least if there was no chipping and it was only one coat, it can be done I think. I really don't miss my short time as a house and fence painter, and even less painting steel bridges, although that paid well, but I only lasted a month or so. Just my two bits worth
  9. And/or a private snow cat. Love taking those up the mountain to go off course.
  10. Math, You can retake it as many time you wish. The Board Rules and Engineers Act are fairly short documents, just read carefully and take your time. As ptatohed mentioned, I was able to find most if not all answers from those 2 documents.
  11. I believe my experience can encourage you to keep moving on, I passed my FE in 6th time. So sometimes it really takes times to find a way to study and pass it. You are not alone!
  12. Did anybody else catch the semi trailer in this week's episode that Daryl and Richard were fighting behind?
  13. Lol Sounds like we've had the same experience. The lines the last two weekends at Squaw (cars and people) were ridiculous. Such a cluster-f. Week before Christmas was the best. At least you got 15 days in. I think I'm barely at 10 and only half of them were worth it. One day I went to Squaw and despite all the talk of snow, all they got was pouring rain. I had breakfast then drove back home. During the Superbowl, I was hoping everyone would be watching the game but I guess everyone else was hoping the same. The snow was great that day but the lines were torture. I'm thinking of getting 3-4 packs for a few places that I like and get maybe 12 days altogether. It might be more than a pass but I have multiple places to go. The downfall is, if you go on a bad day, you just wasted a ticket :/ Grrrr! I need to win the lottery and not have to worry about such things. A private helicopter would make things so much better.
  14. Yes you will be notified by email 4 to 6 weeks prior to the national exam date to register via prometric. They will provide an ID and u can schedule dates for the seismic/survey roughly 2 weeks prior and 1 week after the scheduled national exam (April 21). I like scheduling the latest possible. More study time and less wait for results since everyone gets them at the same time regardless when u took the test.
  15. I just took the official 2017 practice exam - I can confirm they supply charts for air, refrigerant etc if it is required.
  16. It sure has been different around here these last couple of years without you man....
  17. I am very curious about the history of PE, when did United States create the PE exam and licensed engineer title? What is the percentage of PE among all the people working in engineering field? It is difficult to calculate, as one engineer could become a PE in several states, and I found a macro data which is around 20% Any friends also interested in these questions?
  18. No CT doesn't require reapplication after 1st failed attempt. You can go ahead and register for the next exam right when the exam registration is open. When I re-registered, it said the same thing, I think its there so that they can figure out if its your your second or third time. Reminder that if you have to take it the third time, you need to skip one examination before talking it the third time. failure on the third time requires reapplication. Best of Luck on this one and hoping for no more for yaa!
  19. so far I've got 15 days in this year, Id say maybe half of those days I actually had a really good time. Most of those were the week before Christmas and few other scattered days. Yesterday we had gotten so sick of the lines in Steamboat ( snow was terrible too) we decided to snow shoe some and then we rode our boards back to the car (very vanilla type back country riding) but 100 X more enjoyable than the day before.. plus I felt like I got some honest exercise.. Here if we leave around 0630 its a 2 hour drive, worst I have ever had was 3.5 hours (around 100 miles) I hope the broncos do well next year because when they do well it makes a 20 % dip in the amount of traffic.
  20. I'm thinking the same for next year. My problem is that I can't call in "sick" from work all season long and the drive on weekends is extremely brutal. I remember driving right at the end of a storm to go skiing on the east coast. Here in CA, if I dare, I'll be driving 4-5 hours to go 100 miles [emoji20] I'm torn. It's either that or I gather enough pennies to buy something in Tahoe. ::FirstWorldProblems:: Sent from my SURTAB-722-3G-HD-1S using Tapatalk
  21. so as someone over 40 I am not supposed to like "new things" but I was needing to change the oil in the jeep and they have the new "euro style" oil filters that you change from the top of the engine and you don't have to play the game of unscrew the hot oil filter and turn it right-side up before it all spills over the driveway game.. have to say If I could find an easy way to rotate my own tires I may never have to go back to have someone else change my oil ever again, it was "easy peasy"
  22. I am giving serious thought to taking a year off skiing- or maybe just buying a 4 pack and not getting a season pass next year.. Days like this are so much more enjoyable..
  23. Have you paid for the exam? In NJ my board approval didn't show up on the websites 7ntil Friday after I made my payment. Per the NJ Board there is some kind of glitch in the NCEES system. CT may be different, but in NJ when I had to retake the FE, I just had to pay the new exam fee.
  24. Yesterday
  25. I do think you can "overthink " the cars! But the way I saw it, so long as your kid isn't the one whose car doesn't make it all the way down the track you have done your job! PH- The cost vary from pack to pack, our "dues" were around $75 a year. You buy the shirt, book, and a few patches. The pack buys the "badges" If you are considering it for the fall look around ebay for used cub scout shirts in the summer, they will be plentiful as kids grow fast, they will be hard to find once school starts and the pack year begins. We bought a large blue shirt for the kids that gets them through 3rd grade usually.
  26. I think it is fair to assume that if the Interims edition was required for the exam, NCEES would state so.
  27. AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications. https://bookstore.transportation.org/item_details.aspx?ID=1541 They state this version is good for the PE exam, and its a much lower price, than the version with the Interims. However, on NCEES exam specs, I don't see where they state interims are not needed for exam. Its a fair price compared to the $800 bucks for all inclusive version.
