  1. Last October my score was 36/80 with a score of 61. I am curious what others received this April. Since I learned the material twice, I was able to complete more of the problems in the breadth and depth portions without having to guess.
  2. Trying to determine the cut score for WRE.
  3. I attended the live Testmasters course in Dallas. There were approximately 100 people who received the training. My degree is mechanical but I took the civil WRE course because my work experience is in the water/wastewater industry. I could not have passed if it were not for the course. The morning session course helped me prepare for the breadth topics while the WRE session was ok. The course was 80 hours and I studied approximately 1.25 hours for each hour I was in the course. My total preparation hours were 80 (course) + 100 (study + practice problems) equaling 180 hours. I never could have passed the PE exam without Testmasters because I am an ME and I never took some of the topics in college. I am also 46 so recollection of college material did not help. Remember no course is perfect. Also if you have someone to study along side of you, it really helps.
  4. What really helped me was to have the NCEES outline out during the test and follow it question by question because the test questions followed the exact order of the outline so I knew what folder to reference for every question.
  5. I totally agree with SoCalBound. I failed last October's test. After 24 years out of school, married 20 years, 3 kids, lots of work/home/church responsibilities, took the FE in 1993, I decided that I was going to take the PE test. I did what SoCalBound said after I failed the test. I told others that it doesn't matter how many times I take the test I am going to pass it. But it was for my benefit not because of what they thought of me. I decided that I was going to pass this test regards of the amount of tries. Mklee1986, you must decide that nothing is going to stop you (even a failed result). You can do it.
  6. Passed Civil WRE at 46. 24 years after taking the FE, married 20 years, 3 children, and an ME degree.
  7. We are coming closer to NCEES posting the results. Keep filling out this poll if you have not already.
  8. Remember, this site will get inundated with posts the day NCEES releases the results. So far the recent posts are just trolling posts. I guess some people get a kick out of getting others worked up.
  9. It also looks like this who took the April 2017 test are more confident in passing than in October 2016.
  10. You will get used to seeing the trolling posts for the next several days/weeks. However, the day the results from NCEES are released, this forum will become so active with people posting when their state has posted the results.
  11. The morning portion of the April 2017 exam seemed more straight forward compared to the poll taken for October 2016.
  12. Here we go again. The same posts by the same people after every test.
  13. I wanted to see how all the disciplines felt about the morning and depth portions of the PE Civil exam. Thank you for participating.
  14. Ohhhhh. So you are going to start these "fooled ya" posts again.
  15. I agree that there were a lot more conceptual type questions in the morning than I expected. The afternoon questions seemed to be slighted weighted towards hydraulic type questions.
