  1. I just passed all three exams (it took 3 tries to pass surveying). I turned in my fingerprints the day after I got the results and I am still waiting to get assigned a license number. Anyone else on the same boat?
  2. Hey everyone, I know CA has the new board approval process where applicants for the PE can just go directly to NCEES if they passed the FE (http://www.bpelsg.ca.gov/applicants/application_process_changes_091216.pdf). Well, this update wasn't valid until after submitting my board approval application (Oct 2016). I haven't heard back from the board yet. I called them, and they said they will notify all applicants via email. I'm an out-of-state applicant, so I had to submit fingerprints to be processed. It's not been 3 months, and I still haven't heard back. Whenever I call, I am always told to keep checking my email. Anyone in the same boat, or have gotten any word back from the board? Any thoughts? Oh also, I'm registered for the PE on NCEES and it says approved. I chatted with someone on NCEES, and she said it indicates board approval. But why wasn't I directly notified by the board yet?!! Confused...
  3. on the DBPR website, what "Qualification Effective" date does it show for your license? This is for the New PEs who took the October test. i think they have mine wrong due to issues with my application. i just need confirmation thanks!
  4. Wondering if anyone is interested in the following test materials for the PE exam: NCEES Transportation Practice Exam including morning breadth and afternoon sessions. AASHTO Roadside Design Guide, 4th Edition Both books are like new, I bought them in the fall and used them to study and take the October exam. Neither have any markings or highlighting of any sort. Let me know if you have any interest or questions. Thanks, Jake
  5. Hello everyone, I am an electrical PE and I have also been working for a PE Civil engineer for the last 12 months in the state of California. I have been told that if you have your PE in any engineering field that you only need (1) year of work experience under an engineer to apply for the second license. In short, I would like to sit for the Civil PE exam in california and i only have (1) year of work experience in Civil Engineering under a Civil PE but I am an electrical PE already. Anyone know anything about this? Thanks in advance!
  6. I will be taking the Mechanical PE exam in April '17 and have chosen the Machine Design and Materials (MDM) exam specification. Being that I graduated quite some time ago, I've enrolled in a refresher course which starts in a few weeks, but in the mean time I was wondering if somebody could make a recommendation for a book or study guide that covers these topics which make up the 2nd part of the exam. I already have MERM (Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual), 13th edition, but it only covers them superficially.
  7. I'm wondering how different firms across the country handle and regard professional licensure - did your firm do anything for you regarding the test or were you on your own? examples - reimbursing exam fees, giving PTO, providing study materials, reimbursing travel costs, etc. I'm trying to get the policy at my company changed (they pay you the day that you take it but no reimbursement of out-of-pocket costs) and I'm interested in feedback as to what the typical situation for most engineers is.
  8. 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.
  9. Good Morning Crew, I am an electrical engineer at a Federally Funded Research and Development Center in East Tennessee. I started my career off with a BS EET in 2003 and got a job as a technician, then worked my way into a engineering role. Around 2011 I went back to the University of Tennessee for my BS in Electrical Engineering, I completed that degree in 2014. I then started work on my MS in Electrical Engineering at the University of Tennessee and finished that this semester. I worked continuously at the FFRDC the entire time. I also had a RA position at UT during my MS. My thesis was in microelectronics design. Most of my work experience has been board level and system level design of electronics and electrical systems for radiation detection electronics, motion control and automation for laboratory systems. I have done a mix of hardware, software and firmware. The majority of this time has been with one group at the FFRDC, which had no PE's in the group. Now I have switched positions and the new group also has no PE's. So I am looking for guidance on how to handle the progressive engineering experience requirement for PE supervision. How can I get the experience requirement? All the electrical PE's I know don't do board level and system level electronics. Most electronics guys work under the industrial exemption and don't get the PE because of that. The way I am funded at work requires the drafting of proposals to government agencies. I want to get my PE to help my proposals stand out and show that by funding me they are getting an engineered product. I am a firm believer that all engineers should get licensed to increase professionalism. I'm willing to get licensed in another state. Any suggestions?
  10. 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?
  11. Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I am selling my PE exam prep materials for the Mechanical HVAC exam. These are the only materials I studied with and the only references I brought with me to the exam. Using only these, I passed the October 2016 exam on my first try! Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam, 13th edition by Lindeburg ($250) Practice Problems for the Mechanical Engineering PE Exam, 13th edition by Lindeburg ($85) PE Mechanical Engineering: HVAC and Refrigeration Practice Exam by NCEES ($30) Six-Minute Solutions for Mechanical PE Exam HVAC and Refrigeration Problems, 2nd edition by Elder ($65) I bought these materials new and did not write in any of them - so they are in "like new" condition. I have photos ready to send, if interested. I will sell individually for prices listed (add $10 for shipping each) - or will sell as a set for $400, including shipping. Prices are firm and I prefer to use PayPal. I almost don't want to sell these because they remind me of my triumph over the behemoth that is the PE exam :-) but I know they could be helping someone else. Thanks, Ryan

  16. Hello all, Well, I passed the PE and received the letter from the State proving it. In addition to the letter, the State included an application form (as well as a request for $80) and a PE Law exam. Is law exam the same one that was sent with the EIT? My question is: do I have to re-take this Law exam if I already took the law exam after I completed my EIT (5 years ago). Thanks!

  18. I decided to take PE exam back in May 2016 , so went ahead and registered for it. Took the Chemical PE exam in October 2016; passed it and now want to sell some of the material I used for PE preparation: 1. NCEES PE Chemical Engineering Practice Exam This book is a must-read for all who want to take PE exam in Chemical Engineering. It contains 80 questions with comprehensive solutions. I personally read it twice; once skimmed through it when just started studying for PE, and the second time was a week before the actual PE exam when I tried to simulate the exam in a timely manner. I didn’t make any note or highlight in it except a few small notes to show where each section ends. For instance, the questions start with Thermodynamics Q101 to Q118, then Heat Transfer, Kinetics and so on; I wrote a two word note saying “Heat Transfer” on the margin next to Q119. Other than this, the book is clean and ready for a second person to read and go through the adventure of PE Chemical exam! 2. Practice Problems for the Chemical Engineering PE Exam, 7th Edition (By Michael Lindeburg) This book is the companion of "Chemical Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam". It has great problems and is a must-read! I studied most of it; tried to answer all the questions in Thermodynamics, Mass Transfer, Heat Transfer, Kinetics and Fluid Mechanics. There are two more chapters for subjects of "Plant Design" and "Environmental" which I didn't get the time to go over them unfortunately. This book is clean, no highlight or note in it. 3. TI-36X Pro Calculator (This calculator is allowed in PE exam. I have another programmable calculator and don't use this anymore.) In addition to above items, I bought "Chemical Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam", but I would like to keep it, as it contains a lot of good info and is good to have it in my office for future! If you are interested to buy these books, please contact me at "alan.hejrati@gmail.com". The price is negotiable. If you have any other question regarding the exam, I would be glad to bring some light!
  19. I passed Electrical - Power
  20. Up for sale are the practice exam materials that I used to study for, and pass, the October 2016 electrical power PE exam. I bought each practice exam brand new from NCEES & Complex Imaginary a few months before the exam and all are in "like-new" condition (did not write on any pages, no torn pages, no highlight marks). I would highly recommend using these or similar practice exams while studying for your exam. I found the difficulty level of the NCEES practice exam to be slightly more representative of the actual exam than the CI material. However, the CI provides more practice problems and will serve as a better overall study guide for the exam. The following items are included for a total price of $150 (I'll cover the cost of UPS shipment). Photos are available upon request. Please feel free to respond to this post, PM, or send me an email with any questions, my email is tgale08@gmail.com. Paypal would be my preferred method of payment. 1. Complex Imaginary Practice Exams - Complete Set (vol. 1-4) (retail $150) 2. Complex Imaginary Electrical Code Drill Book - Based on 2014 version of NEC (retail $30) 3. NCEES - PE Electrical and Computer Practice Exam (retail $39.95)

  24. Did anyone else find any of the power factor angle questions to be a bit faulty? Without getting into details or nature of the question. Let me just ask this. Is a "coil" at anytime ever just purely resistive? (in this case wouldn't it be just a resistor?)
  25. Ok...So........This was my third try at licensure. I took it in Chicago where Continental Testing Services is the protecting entity. When I sat in my seat I noticed that my test card said "Computer Engineering" "I checked the wrong discipline when I registered! . I panicked and told the one of the reps for CTS that I believe I may be taking the wrong exam. They when elsewhere to discuss with I guess whomever was supervising and said they would allow me take the Power as they have one extra exam of each discipline. They wrote my name and ID on the new test book and cross out C.E and wrote in power on the test card. They, also stated they would write up small incident report to submit to the board. I felt very confident about my test this go round as I studied my arse off. HOWEVER, today I was curious and gave NCEES personnel at call to see if my situation would be honored. Their response was something like "Your test with be graded for whatever exam you registered for"...in this case "Computer Engineering". Major kicked to the face. So I took the Power exam but they are going to grade my scantron sheet as if I took the C.E test!?...wtf.She said that CTS doesn't have authority to change the test. BUT, then went on to say that I need to contact CTS because if anyone can address this situation its them and NOT NCEES, which is confusing...........I emailed someone from CTS and I'm awaiting a response....I'm in EXTREME PANICKED RIGHT NOW.....has anyone heard of a situation like this before
