  1. Hi All. I've retaken the Civil PE Exam with the Geotech depth 3 times now. Every time I change my preparation and, after this last time, my test score did not improve. This leads me to believe I am making a common mistake I can't figure out. I have never been a great test taker, but I study hard, have multiple binders of problems, and never feel stressed on the exam (until my results come). In college, we could review exams to see where we are messing up. NCEES won't let anyone review their exam and, if you live in a certain seven states like me, you can't even have your exam manually re-scored. I was in an email correspondence with a member of the NCEES organization concerning changing policies to better assist those retaking the exam. They basically said I'm out of luck and closed the matter on me without addressing my concerns. Here's how I see it. 1. The diagnostics do little good at showing areas of improvement. I switch on doing good and bad on the same subjects with every exam. Also, I do not know if I am doing worse on computation problems or theory-based problems. That is important to me because one is solved through more problems and the other is solved with experience. What if NCEES provided a better break down of computation and theory-based problems on the diagnostics? 2. There needs to be a general civil option for the in-depth section. I worked as a Geotech for a year and a general civil for almost 3 years now. My firm is a land development firm and, thus, provides an overview of every civil discipline. I, therefore, am not obtaining the necessary in-depth professionalism the NCEES organizations says I should because my civil career is not one set discipline. When I asked why NCEES does not offer a general civil discipline, they refused to answer my question. What do you all think? I've taken the Geotech depth and even if I had stayed at my first firm, I would not be at the level of most of those questions that are asked. I think an extension of the morning exam should be offered for the afternoon as well to support all civil disciplines. The EIT exam offers a general option, why not the same for the PE exam? 3. By not reviewing the exam, I feel like I am going in blind with every test, hoping my new study preparation works better. I was told the questions are intellectual property. What about signing a document stating we won't share the questions with anyone else? All three exams I have taken have been completely different. I was told people who continue to fail are not making a change to their "material preparation." I strongly believe most people are like me and continue making significant changes each time they study for the exam, but are making mistakes they have no idea about. I need to see my mistakes to be able to adjust them. Reviewing the exam I guarantee would lead to me passing it. I am not sure if anyone has taken their concerns to NCEES or questioned about reviewing their exam. I know there are ranges of people from passing the first time to taking 5 tries to pass. I'm tired of spending the money and dealing with the headache and frustration wit re-taking this exam, especially when it seems like NCEES could assist better at providing us with the keys to success. Thoughts?
  2. Hello, I am currently studying to take the NCEES PE Test in April 2017. I was wondering if anyone had any sample study schedules or guides that helped them organize their study approach. Thank you in advance.
  3. Regarding the Transportation PM Section of the exam, what are everyone's thoughts? Colleagues of mine in the Transportation Field thought the test was difficult. People in my office are concerned about the results, how do you think you did? And if you were in the Houston section, how about that proctor?
  4. I passed.......!! : ))) Here is my background. Long story short, I graduated 5 years ago and didn't put effort to pass EIT when I was in school. Now I need to pass this EIT for my career and I decided to take review class. If you scroll down in this forum, I asked about review class back in January/February. I was on fence between School of PE and EET, and I decided to go with EET. I can't speak of School of PE, but I highly recommend EET FE CIVIL review class. (They have demo sample video if you want to see how it's like, but you need to ask them). I enrolled in Sameh's on demand online class. (Link is here http://www.eetusa.com/classes/fe) because I can't commit class's schedule due to my baby and family. Here are the reasons why I gave EET's FE review class 4.5 starts out of 5. 1. The class format is very easy to follow and well structured. Sameh goes over a little bit of equations and concepts and he shows you where you can find that equation in NCEES's reference manual. Then follow by examples and quizzes. The class is heavily based on practicing problems than a lot of theories. Keep in mind that we are not trying to get Engineering Degree here, but we are trying to pass FE exam which you need to do a tons of practice problems. 2. There are a lot of problems available for you to practice. The level of difficulty of the problems is a little bit below Michael R. Lindeburg but harder than actual NCEES’s problems which i found it very well prepared for actual test. It’s mixed with easy, medium and hard questions. 3. There will be HW assignments for all subjects. Then timed section exams to test your speed and knowledge of subjects. Finally, you can have timed 110 NCEES’s alike final test. 4. I can’t conclude without talking about Sameh. He’s a very caring and positive person. I told him that I had to stop studying for 3 months due to my family circumstance and he’s very understanding. His responses are very prompt and you can ask him questions any time any day. The reason I am giving 4.5 is that there are a few things they can be improved on. The lectures are based on NCEES’s reference 9.0 version, not 9.4. Changes from 9.0 to 9.4 are very minor. NCEES just added a few transportation (2 pages) in 9.4 from 9.3, and a few deflection formulas changed in Mechanic of Materials. Their review is great for someone who got civil engineering background and needed review to recall what you have studied before. It's not designed for someone who needs to understand fundamental of civil engineering from the scratch. Here are the study materials that I have used to pass my 1st attempt (with real study): 1. EET FE Civil Review (Approximately 1000 problems with both examples, quizzes, HW, section exams, final exam) 2. NCEES practice problems 2014 (50 questions) 3. NCEES practice problems 2009 (60 morning / 30 afternoon questions) 4. Utlimate Civil FE practice problems by Isaac Oakeson (110 questions) (Do only after you completed your review to practice your speed) 5. Michael R. Lindeburg’s FE Civil Practice Problems (I did around 200 problems out of 466 in the book in Math, Hydraulic, Environmental, Geotech, Materials, Transportation, Construction, Computer) (I glanced through Statics, Mechanics of Materials, and Structural and skipped problems that required more than 4 steps which won’t be on test). My Strategies on Exam Day 1. Light review or no study at all on a day before exam. 2. Make sure you have enough 8 hours sleep on a night before exam. 3. Don’t build up your stress and go into exam room. Just relax and have a little bit of worry to maintain your energy throughout 6 hours. 4. During the exam, if you don’t know how to tackle problems within 15 seconds, flag and skip to next. Save your brain juice for problems that you know how to do. 5. Educated guesses are very critical in the exam. You will find yourself with 10-20 questions that you have no idea or you are not sure how to do. Try to eliminate 1-2 impossible answers and make a choice of the remaining 2-3 possible answers. You will gain this skill once you did a tons of practice problems. I put in around 200ish hours for the exam. I'm glad handwork pay off finally, and i don't have to do FE again. Now on to the PE and I'm heavily leaning toward EET's review class for my 8 hours and seismic exams. Finally, I thank engineerboards.com and awesome fellow engineers here for making this happen. Without you, i can't imagine what i'll be studying for FE or how many more times i need to attempt. I'm so glad this forum exists. If any of you have any questions about anything, just ask me here.
  5. Hi everyone: I took the Civil PE several years ago. At that time, the breadth section included questions regarding wastewater and water treatment and processes such as determining BOD and hardness. However, in my current review course for civil - construction depth, and in the NCEES civil PE exam specs, it appears those topics are not part of the test and have been moved over to people taking the environmental PE or civil - water resources depth. Of course, we are still tested on hydraulics and hydrology, but I was wondering if you may know if water and wastewater treatment are still covered in the morning section of the civil PE? Thank you, John

  10. ...just kidding with the dramatic cry for help. But I do have a question for the PE-knowledgeable: what is an "engagement," with respect to the CA Civil PE Engagement Record and Reference Form? It was explained to me this morning at work that you need 4+ engagements, each with an associated reference, but that they can all take place in the same job under the same employer. Therefore the employment dates can be the same for all 4 engagements (in my case, just over 2 years of employment). Only the "total time worked" and "qualifying work" will be shorter, and specific to each engagement. I've gotten mixed messages elsewhere, so... Is that correct? Thanks!

    Wanted to see how everyone felt about Saturday's PE Civil Exam. For me, it was rough in the afternoon (wre) but the morning felt like a breeze.
  12. I am doing QA on stripping of "A" horizon on a mine site. Part of the site is two wetlands in which the EOR wants to decommission. As per discussion with the contractor, contractor said that they can only strip the wetland with an arm reach of an excavator. The rest will be just covered with soil, with the water being pumped elsewhere or squeezed by the material placed on top. Site will be a plant site once the mine gets fired up. Just wondering what is the standard decommissioning of wetlands? Is covering the area with "C" horizon enough?
  13. A new 40 question practice (breadth only) exam written by Indranil Goswami will become available on Amazon around September 30th, 2016. Questions are all different from previously published (2012, 2014 and 2015) practice exams. They are also consistent with the latest official NCEES syllabus.
  14. Hey I just found that beautiful forum while i was searching for some engineering community , I'm new here in manhattan I hope I find a good friends here
  15. Hi All, This question might have been addressed, but I couldn't find any updated info on this. As a Masters Degree holder (UK) in Civil Engineering, I am allowed to take the FE exam and PE exam in: 1. Texas 2. South Carolina Q1. Any other states? Q2. Do I need to take the FE and PE in the same state? (Maybe I can take the FE in any test centres, only when I go for the PE, then I need to be in Texas?) Q3. How long is the FE score valid for? Q4. I need to be a US resident to sit for the exams? Thanks in advance for any info

  17. I am applying for the California Civil PE. I am trying to fill out my Engagement Record form. I am confused what to put in the "Description of Engineering Decisions Made" section. There seems to be some overlap between what is good for civil engineers to say vs what is good for mechanical engineers to say. E.g. piping outside of a building is civil engineering but piping inside of a building is mechanical engineering. Since I am applying for the CIVIL PE, what "Engineering Decisions" are considered civil (to be clear, this is general civil, NOT traffic, structural, or geotechnical). - Is sizing pumps civil? Is choosing flow meters civil? Any suggestions? Thank you!
  18. The next course taught by Dr. Indranil Goswami starts August 16th. 21 lectures, each 3 hours covers breadth and depth topics. Online webinars. Lectures are recorded and archived. Early bird ($100 off) deadline is July 1. Practice exam at end of course. Inquire at civilpereview@gmail.com
  19. Hello all, I am currently a new graduate from University of California, San Diego with a degree in BS Structural Engineering. I have been interning at a mid-size structural design firm for about 2 months now in the Bay Area. Palo Alto to be exact. My starting hourly wage was only 15 dollars an hr. And now that I have interned for two months, the principal is offering me a full time position with a wage of 18 an hr. Now...I know am inexperienced with the exception of my intern experience here. However, from my ask around from my friends and colleagues, I know i should be aiming for around 55k-60k. This offer is no where near that. 15 an hr was fine for interning cause I just want experience. Is my salary expectation skewed? Should I take this offer (it is at will)? Maybe I should take the offer, get some experience and then leave in like a couple of months? With the exception of the salary, I love this job. I get to work on a variety of projects, i like my coworkers and the hours are reasonable. Please advise...I am so green haha. Thanks everybody

    What's the best way to self study for the PM? I was thinking about buying the Structural Depth Reference Manual (SDRM) but I've read bad reviews. Instead, I might get the Structural Engineering Reference Manual (SERM) - but I'm afraid of wasting time working through problems that are much more difficult than the PE test. I am not very likely to go for the SE (~10%) unless the laws change or a future employer requires. However, the SERM would be very usefully for my current job and career path. Or is the only way to study is to work on as many practice problems I can find and eventually I'll cover all the topics? For the AM, I am buying the CERM for sure, likely a used 1 year old edition.

  23. It seems like throughout the web and within this forum the overwhelming recommendation is to study 300 hours for the 8-hour Civil PE exam. I understand that this study number is high because this number is given as a “regardless of someone’s skill level if they study 300 hours they should most definitely pass” benchmark, but I feel that throwing out 300 hours as the optimal study time could be doing more harm than good, so from someone who just passed the 8-hour exam I want to put another opinion out there for prospective test takers which might help them with their quality of life while they are studying! After walking out of the 8-hour WRE exam I felt very confident I would pass. Walking IN to the exam, however, was a completely different story as I was acutely aware that I had only studied half of the time recommended. I was nervous and really lacking in confidence. During the months coming up to the exam I felt the pressure of knowing that I wasn’t dedicating enough time (or so I thought) to studying and there were many moments where it felt useless and I would resign to finishing studying early because I was too stressed. I had prepared for the test by studying ~150 hours, including ~28 hours which were watching the ASCE PE review webinar series (which I would not recommend, but that is another story). I took the PE 3 years after finishing my undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering and was by no means a stellar CE student. People come into the PE exam with a huge range of experiences so shouldn’t the recommendation for study time reflect that? Maybe there could be a range of hours based on experience going into the exam: 100-150 Confident in material; solid understanding of fundamentals; good test taker; degree/career experience directly related to test material 150-200 Somewhat confident in material; good understanding of fundamentals; good test taker; degree/career experience directly related to test material 200-300 Not confident with the material; haven’t actively practiced engineering in a long time, degree/career experience only related to some of the test material. 300+ Not at all confident with the material; haven’t actively practiced engineering in a long time; bad test taker What do you think about this? Are there other examples of recommended study times already out there that I missed which do a better job of describing the range?
  24. For the solution for question 138 in the Lindeburg PE sample exam: why is the equation for the stiffness 12EI/L^3 for each column? The problem asks you to idealize the structure as a cantilever, so shouldn't the stiffness be 3EI/L^3 for each column (like a cantilevered beam)? They account for the fact that there are 4 columns later on in the solution, so I must be missing something with the original stiffness equation. There's nothing in the errata for this problem. Could someone help me out? Thanks a bunch!
