  1. Happy Birthday
  2. Typically Autocad or Microstation, again depending on the utility. I have never seen 3d modeling for anything in a substation. We typically do not reinvent the wheel.
  3. A lot depends on the company you work for. Some have people work on specialized areas, others not so much. I work for a consultant that does substation design, and it takes a couple years to get a new engineer up to speed on some of the more complex designs. Can't speak about starting over, this was my first engineering job. I don't see it slowing down any time soon. Too much to upgrade.

  8. Halfway thru the 4th quarter.
  9. I had a combo of both large and small. It is more important to know where to look. Organize your notes accordingly. It'll make it easier during the exam.
  10. [emoji3] I wonder what the old timers think about our multiple choice exam when they were graded on their work on the exam. Given a blank sheet of paper, they had to answer like 4 questions in the am and 4 in the pm. Sounds like my electronics final in college.
  11. Exactly why I think the test will end up being slightly easier. Plus it'll be shorter. Anything to coddle the next generation?
  12. I see your point, but let me ask you this. Would you / do you use the CERM for work? Because on the electrical side (as an example), I use NFPA 70 for work. And my experience with specifying designs that were NFPA 70 compliant helped me to be better prepared for the PE exam. Could someone who didn't have the same industry experience study NFPA 70 to prepare for the exam. Yes, but having that code and working with it in industry is a big help. Agreed. There are many sections in the power section that are not covered very well in a single book. If it is the same test and they use a searchable pdf, it would need to be over 2000 pages of crap.
  13. And the $20 shipping the pound of paper
  14. Won't this equate to dumbing down of the overall exam?
  15. You don't own a pen to print? PCSHQ requires a lot of hand writing. I tested there prior to passing in Ohio. It takes a LOT of time to fill out that application, especially if you have had more than a couple of employers. Time to buy stock in Bic.
