  1. Hi, everyone! I've found a few people out there who are also taking EET's on-demand breadth course, but I'm not sure I've found anyone taking the on-demand structural depth course. Just thought this might be a place to come to coordinate studies, ask questions, etc. So, is there anyone else out there doing EET's structural depth with me?
  2. 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.
  3. Is anyone who is taking EET's transportation live webinar (or on demand) interesting in a google study group or something similar? Thanks -Matt
  4. Hello everyone, For those taking EET - Breadth portion. I am thinking of doing a Skype meeting every Sunday for a couple of hours (most prob in the evening Eastern time) after reviewing the lecture from the day before. Basically, this is only a Q&A meeting - to reinforce our understanding in the material covered. And probably a second meeting during the week for HW questions. The limit for the group conference call on Skype is 25 people. If interested please private message me. Thank you!
  5. For anyone who has taken the EET - SE Review Courses (vertical and/or lateral), how much homework is there each week on average? I am hesitantly considering taking both the vertical and lateral review courses at the same time, but, working full-time, I am afraid I won't have enough hours in the week to do all the homework. Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! -Tom
  6. I'm new to this board so forgive me if I post something if I shouldn't... I'm taking the WRE exam in October, it's my third time taking the exam and first time taking WRE. I took structural engineering the first two times even though I work in a sewer field. I'm taking PPI but after skimming these boards it appears that I should have taken EET based on what people here are saying. I've read there is a binder out there that people have found very helpful. Can anyone tell me what's in that binder or how I can get a hold of that binder. I'm not looking to get anything for free and would gladly pay for something. Really I just want to give myself the best chance to pass. Thanks, Chas
  7. Hello Everyone, Background I am trying to figure out if I have a good chance of passing the Transportation PE for the fall of 2016 and could really use some input from the experienced members here! I was originally planning to take the Transportation PE Exam in April 2016 but I had to postpone due to some personal reasons. I was about 40% into my EET course when I had to step back and take care of other priorities. Fortunately, EET was willing to work with me and allowed me access to the lectures until the fall of 2016. My Questions 1. There are about 70 days till the fall exam and I work full time. Realistically I wont be able to put in good quality hours every single day for the next 70 days. Is this enough time to get through all the EET course work and be able to answer most of these questions in about 6 minutes? 2. I am fairly new to the afternoon section since I work mostly with aviation and not highways/traffic. Is 1 month enough to prepare for the Transportation PM? (Assuming I would have approximately 1 month to work on the afternoon section after I finish the morning and still save some time for the over all review.I have most of the resources needed for the PM section) 3. I am mostly studying using the EET study materials. Will this be sufficient or should I look beyond the EET materials? I go through this roller coaster of confidence where one day I feel like I know the material I have studied really well and the next day it feels like I know very little. Can anyone relate? lol) On a positive note, I am very motivated to pass this exam but if the time available is not reasonable then I feel like I would just be wasting money and time. If I don't take the exam in the fall then more than likely I will have to wait another year or more....having a baby later this winter. I appreciate any input/insight/recommendations. Sorry for the long post!. See attached, (At least you got to see a picture of a cute puppy?) Beej
  8. There's no turning back now. I've officially registered for the EET review course, paid the fee and started working problems like crazy. I'm working problems from old NCEES sample tests, Lindberg, Goswami and 6 minute solutions and will make my own quick reference guide so hopefully that and more theory review will help me to prepare. Good luck to anyone taking the PE in April 2016.
  9. I normally don't do this but I feel strongly about the program that helped me pass the NCEES PE Exam (8 hour), Engineering, Education & Training (EET). I passed the seismic using Hiner, I passed the surveying using Reza combined with Monsour. But the NCEES PE Exam was a different animal. Simply put it's a lot of information. A little history: Being new to the work force and having debt from school and getting myself situated, I didn't want to spend any more money on schooling. I already paid for programs to pass Seismic and Surveying but the 8 hour I thought would be general enough that I wouldn't need any more programs. After making copies of anything I could find, finally caving in to take 2 different programs to pass the PE and still failing, I was at my wits end. I had several binders of too much material and nothing was efficient or made sense. A coworker who had passed seismic with EET said she couldn't vouch for the 8 hour because she passed it before after paying for some other program that did not help her but her experience with the Seismic instructor with EET convinced her that EET really wanted to help and it wasn't all about the money (which by the way is very reasonable.) I did not want to do it, I was afraid of wasting my time and money but I needed help. So I contacted them and actually spoke to the instructors and I got a good feeling so I signed up for Fall 2013 with EET at their web site www.eet-california.com. They were the best, they guided me from beginning to end. They keep their classes small, so that they can give personal attention and I mean they call and send emails to check that your studying and doing your assignments. They really get to know you. Your assignments include weekly homework as well as mini-quizzes or quick impromptu questions. The format made sense, I threw out all the old Binders of too much material and organized what I needed. I missed passing the October 2013 exam by 5 points (assuming a passing score of 56/80) but I was motivated! That was the closest I ever got. I was usually missing the exam by around 11 points and I couldn't get any closer. So I signed up again with EET for Spring for the April 2014 exam and PASSED!!! Side note: Both times my depth module was TRANSPORTATION. Sorry for the long post, but if you are someone that needs to be pushed, especially by someone who really cares and wants to see you succeed, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND EET. I wish I had found them sooner. I hope this helps.
