  1. Same here PE me if anyone willing to sell course notes that are not needed anymore
  2. NC results out, back to studying for me. Unacceptable both parts. Splitting up the exams this time around. Vertical in fall, lateral next Spring.
  3. yea looks like a wash for today, but results should be here in due time Im sure. I'd rather them take their time and get the results right
  4. I am a bit confused on the registration deadline for the Seismic and Surveying exams. If I already possess a PE license from another state, I still have to meet the "new" file deadline correct? I was not expecting it to be so early (May 1st for this Fall cycle) and a little annoyed I may have to wait until April 2018 to take these two small exams. I've emailed the board, but wanted to get any personal experiences or a possible work around that others can provide, thanks.
  5. I'm hoping for somewhere between Wednesday and Friday
  6. Dang I need to move to Houston. Funny how I have two jobs I am currently working on in Houston, but I am from out of state. Might as well jump ship to the great state of TX to practice structural engineering
  7. Great advice!
  8. Whaaa!
  9. woohooo...Im a lurker but kept up with this thread congrats!
  10. Ignore the "wait until board issues number" debby downers...I swear every 6 months they come in these threads to throw shade without fail. If you have already applied for licensure through your state and the last step is receiving the PASS notification from NCEES put whatever PE variation you want. In a few days you'll receive your license number in mail but is has already been created as of the notification from NCEES to the state so no worries. I'm sure the eyes of the law will be on your side if someone would complain. Congrats and celebrate your achievement!
  11. Hmm there is a lot to decipher from your post, but I'll try to tackle it. Ignore the CA requirements for licensure and focus on sitting for the SE exam in itself. Licensure =/= being able to sit for exam in most states as you have highlighted in your OP. It doesn't even matter whether you're a PE or not in some states. Now that I think about it, there are really too many variables to have an answer to fit all circumstances. Your best bet is to email your state board and other state boards that recognize the SE title and figure which one will allow you to take the exam the earliest (if that's your goal) and take the exam with the plan to APPLY for licensure in that state that gives you the answer you are looking for. I can tell you already CA is not your easiest route.
  12. PE results are slated for release next week based on typical times (received my notice on May 24th last year). I would assume SE to be about 2 weeks afterward, pending on when the afternoon grading session starts from what I've read
  13. Buildings SE Vert/Lat: I felt the exam was tough, but fair. For the vertical AM, the questions were similar to the practice exams but with greater depth in some cases. For vertical PM, I was expecting a concrete problem similar to the practice exams but was surprised by the question. Question was still fair I suppose. Lateral AM/PM were tough. I had enough time but not enough knowledge. For Lateral AM, I answered about 20 on first go around and think I answered another 5 or so second go around. I felt about 75-80% confident on those 25. For the life of me, there were about 5 or so questions where I would get answer close but be off by a few from the choices. Then there were another 10 questions where I either took a 50% guess or complete guess. Lateral PM was interesting. NCEES definitely threw a surprise question in there, but after thinking about the study outline they provide I guess I shouldn't have been that surprised. Finished it all, but toss up if my methodology was sound. My strategy for PM was to use approximate shortcut equations where I could and explain in writing "if more time..." the complete process including equations. I hope that is sufficient for concrete portion and masonry question.
  14. Thanks!
