  1. I have an AISC manual, 6min solns, the big PPI practice problems book, PPI sample exam, NCEES sample exam, ACI 518 masonry code, PCI handbook manual. If you are interested please post your email and I will contact you. VERY CHEAP! Much cheaper than buying on half.com or new. Also - to the EB admins - is there a yard sale section anymore? If not, please explain why (if possible) and what you would like me to do in lieu of posting here. Thanks

  4. Yeah what most people do is frame the certificate and then keep the offical license (1/2 of 8.5x11 sized document) or the wallet card jammed into the corner of the framed certificate because IT HAS THE EXPIRATION date on it. The certificate does not have an exiration date on it. Also don't forget to sign the wallet card and the license to activate them. And I think we are supposed to order an embossed seal as well - I read on that document that came with the license that we have to have an embossed seal before we can get the rubber stamp or the electronic version. Also so yeah PA seems to be technically ahead of the other states on some things. We can officially call ourselves PE the day we find out we passed the exam because we have the state issued license number the day we get the exam results. We also can order the seal immediately because of that fact. Finally, less than two weeks for the certificate, official license, and wallet card are not bad at all. Also I framed my certificate and everytime I look at it I think - Man I really did that! I wonder if that feeling ever fades. haha. Either way what a summer! Question - Does everyone overlay their signature on the seal when in electronic format? I have seen several people do this with the physical stamp or embossing so I assume most do this on the electronic version. Do you have any pointers on what is the best way to create a quality stacked file that works well in Acad? I guess I am asing what program u use to scan and copy and what resolution I should shoot for. Any insight would be great. I am not at a firm and only do some work on the side. Also I got my electronic vrsion from engineeringseals.com.
  5. EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS HERE. I will make deal for buying multiple items and a great deal if you buy them all. I passed and I have an Aero Eng degree and am 10 years out of college and do not work in the civil industry (explains why i had to buy and want to sell all these references). If this is enough for me to pass than it should be enough for you assuming you either went to school for this stuff or do it for a living. All I had in addition to this was the IBC but rented that from the public library. I studied for 12 weekends 8 hours each sat and sun and I was well prepared. Figure ~$15 to ship via ground.

  7. So I passed - what is next? The letter said 90 days to process. I assume the wall cert, wallet card, and stamp order instructions are on the way?
  8. I started this thread this time and in Oct - and unfortunetly - I passed! Congrats to those that passed and to those that did not don't give up. It looks like a 53+ is needed.
  9. SnobumPE - You rock man. I went through this in Oct with you and since I am in PA I spend a lot of time on these threads. Congrats to you and thanks for doing this for everyone!
  10. Mikecart1 - That is all normal thinging. Instead of focusing on what could be try to focus on what is. You are alive and hopefully healthy. I assume you are combining the stress of the exam with other career or life (or both) decisions which makes it more difficult to relax and think clearly. IMO you should be proud that you were able to study and make a good showing on what is a difficult test. Lower your expectations of yourself and stop focusing on the future and you will find the clarity neeed to make the decision. You cannot plan out your life right now, but what you can do is enjoy the moment and then deal with the outcome of the test when you get the result. You either take it or don't take it again - either way it does not define you nor will it be on your tombstone brah. My wife tells me to chillax when I say the things you just said. haha. Hope that helps. Oh yeah and stop spending money - you might not need it.
  11. This is my second time, and i knew the creulty was coming....haha the lotto was great. Well done dex.
  12. I took the exam in pa in oct 2011 and I got my results about 1/6 which was about 12 days before the next Pa board meeting. So my guess is that they will be out before the end of next week. Also i got my results on the ncees website not a letter. This does sucks, but i am setting my expectation for next friday.
  13. Just talked to someone at the PA Licenseing board. She said there are still a "couple things left to do with them" [results] before they can be released. She said most likely next week and I probed for more detail or early/mid/late week guess - but came up empty. I did ask if the results have to be brought in front of the board meeting on the 18th and she said NO. So that is good. I waited like this in October and it was brutal. This is worse.
  14. Really PA....really?
  15. NY or PA
