  1. The exam specifications are provided in the NCEES website. The current ones are found here: http://ncees.org/engineering/pe/mechanical/ It appears a lot of the information you're looking for is easily found in the NCEES website regarding the PE exam. Browse through the website and if you have additional questions feel free to ask.
  2. Personally I find the ASME steam tables to be garbage. The MERM tables were better. Alternately, bring a copy of Moran/Shapiro or Keenan/Keyes.
  3. I stopped watching the Spiderman movies after the first couple. This new trend of the increasingly younger Aunt May is also a little weird.
  4. The 13th has comprehensive coverage of HVAC that was lacking in the 12th.
  5. To address the question regarding books, the only item missing from your list is the companion book to the MERM which provides practice questions (not the Lindeburg practice exam). I personally did not see the need for classes and I doubt you will need it considering you are recently removed from academia.
  6. Read this:
  7. Same as Fox an Dex - wife, one kid who was a few months old, working on second Master's Degree, working full time... Coffee was helpful but what really helped was giving myself a 10 min break after 50 mins of study. Just get up and stretch, walk around, browse the internet - something to take your mind off the exam material. Like Dex pointed out, the study environment is a major factor. I basically shut myself in my home office for the 3 hours/night I did during the week and 8 hours/day both Saturday and Sunday. If you're having a hard time staying awake you may want to break up your study. Try 1 or 1-1/2 hours early in the morning and then same at night.
  8. Took mini-Ram to see Despicable 3. Ok movie, good for kids but the series is getting a bit worn. Watched Avengers Civil War on Netflix. Ok movie but certainly wouldn't be worth paying theater prices for.
  9. Personal experience Matt?
  10. lmao @ when it was called Captain America.
  11. How was it? Mrs. Ram wants to take mini-Ram to see it as his first in-theater movie. He loved the first two so I imagine he'll like this one as well.
  12. Saw Assassin's Creed on my flight back from SC. Not as terrible as it was made out to be. If you're a fan of the video games you'll probably like the movie.
  13. Based on the practice questions I've seen, project management questions are usually some calculation involving potential change to critical path or sequence of events. Economic analysis is engineering economics.
  14. Thanks for all the ideas. Definitely starting him on swimming lessons. Also sold on the katchakid net, pool sensor, and door sensor.
  15. Working my way through the TV series Bones. Just discovered my cable provider has thrown HBO into my package so I have a lot of GoT to catch up on.
