  1. NYS License Numbers

    Mine it up!
  2. NYS License Numbers

    I took it in Brooklyn too. What did you think of the facility? I thought it was hot, noisy, and could not understand the proctors at all when they gave direction.
  3. NYS License Numbers

    I took electrical power and my license number does not appear on the website as of this morning.
  4. Cannot disagree more. I took Villanova the first time i took the test. It is a great course on electrical engineering but not a test prep course. It had tons of information that I honestly believe wasted valuable studying time for me. The GA Tech course on the other hand I believe was very good. It focused on mostly what was important and the professor was very accessible. Also, the binder was very good.
  5. NCEES Power Practice Exam Passed

    Show-off. I am educated in Mechanical...but work in electrical
  6. I failed, I admit, now Please help - Power Exam

    I thought the GA Tech professor was excellent.
  7. I failed, I admit, now Please help - Power Exam

    I would add the following: NESC Complex Imaginary Practice Tests - These are more in line with the difficulty of the exam than Spin Up Grainger - Power System Analysis - I recall some questions pulling information from this text almost verbatim Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers - I was able to answer some questions that were "from left field" using this reference. I also used and been studying with Graffeo, Wilde, and Camara...all of which were useful during the exam. I took the georgia tech class which i found helpful for some topics not covered in other references. Some tips: - Ensure to study with your references. Not knowing the Graffeo text prior to the exam is a mistake. - I kept a notebook full of information mainly on topics I did not feel comfortable with. When I would get a question wrong on the practice exam, i would make a tab in the notebook for that topic and research the hell out of it. That would serve as my reference for that topic. Chances were that if i got it wrong in the practice exam, my references did not cover it adequately so i basically made my own references. I took this test three times. Dont give up just learn from your experience and others to do better next time.
  8. NCEES Power Practice Exam Passed

    How did everyone do who was complaining about this test? I passed so I am not complaining anymore.
  9. Review Course Pass/Fail

    Georgia Tech Power Class - Passed This is my third time taking the test. I attribute passing to better study habits and experience but the GA Test helped me alot. My first attempt at taking the test i took the Villanova class because it seemed to be the most comprehensive. I was right, but there was ton of material that is not covered in the exam. I would not recommend Villanova.
  10. NEW YORK IS IN!

    Me too!!
  11. Wow thanks alot!. Where were you before the exam?
  12. It's only been 2 days....42 days to go?

    Based on your location i guess you took this at Pratt. I am assuming you went to Willoughby St rather than Willoughby Ave. I had a buddy that made the same mistake and didnt make it in time for the exam. I agree with your assessment of the power exam and if you look through this forum there were several people who had the same opinion. Just like you, I hope i did well enough to pass but as each day passes I get more doubtful for whatever reason.
  13. Karma will be served if I failed by a couple of points... But continuing with the theme of this thread, there were questions that required this code book. From all courses and information i have, purchasing this book was not something that was needed for the exam. Unless I knew that I needed this book going in, I would not purchase it especially if i would never use it professionally. Now I know, and if I am sitting in a 80 degree gymnasium in Brooklyn again with 500 test takers, I will be sure to have this book. I would not of known that unless I sat for the exam.
  14. Grainger - Power System Analysis - I recall some questions pulling information from this text almost verbatim Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers - I was able to answer some questions that were "from left field" using this reference. I dont want to get too detailed but i work for a switchgear manufacturer so you can imagine which questions did not resonate with me. I also used and been studying with Graffeo, Wilde, and Camara...all of which were useful during the exam. Questions that pulled from these texts i did not consider to be from "left field" In retrospect, I wish i bought a copy of NESC rather than just the table of contents like most of the courses (and this forum) typically guide test takers to do.
  15. Yeh but you learn the theory that's on the sample exams. Don't know how you can prepare for theoretical questions from left field this test was about how good your referenceses were. Thankfully I was on this forum and studied from/had some of the better ones.
