  1. Has anyone had any issues trying to get a decent explanation as to why their experience write up in New York State was discredited? I put in for 7 years and 11 months of engineering experience and they only gave me credit for four years. (I need six years with an engineering technology degree.) I have called and emailed the New York State Department of Education multiple times and they refuse to give me detailed answers as to why they would not count some of my experience, and which pieces of experience did not count. All I want is to know where my experience fell short, and if my current position has been counted as 100% so that I know to apply again in two years. They told me that the process is held in confidentiality. I feel like if they felt strongly enough to knock time off my application that they should stand behind it and give me some reasons....I feel like this top-secret process gives too much power to a few people's biases or egos and that they can make up any excuse to deny someone... One tidbit of information that I was able to get out of the secretary on the phone was that they did not count my experience that occurred before my Bachelors Degree. They said that the work I did during school doesn't count because it is part of the Bachelors degree process, but the work I did was completely separate from my degree... I feel like that is an absolute garbage reason to knock a year of experience off. You are able to become a PE without any degree in NYS...why doesn't my summer work count? I have emailed my assemblyman & the state senator in my district because I feel that for my $400 write up fee, I am entitled to find out why I was denied...If you are going to tell me I suck, you better be able to tell me why I suck. I am all fired up and on the warpath now...Has anyone else had any negative run ins with NYS?

    Hello Everyone, I wanted to know if anyone had some good links to print out for Special Applications portion? Thanks,
  9. Brothers and Sisters, We may have tasted the bitter essence of defeat this round, but we will dust ourselves off and fight for the next round! When the fail icon came up on my screen, I was heartbroken over the 9 months of preparation, but that turned into a fire of overcoming the obstacle. I haven't been this stoked to study and prepare for any test in my life more so than now, and I hope you will find that fire in the pit of your belly to struggle through the defeat and turn weakness into strength! Let's find that reason to pass (your job, family, legacy, fighting against the odds, whatever it may be). If you have some inspiration or videos/gifs to motivate you and others add them here, lets do this thing! Fall Forward (Denzel Washington) - Motivational Video Fall down 5 times, get back up 6.
  10. So this past spring I took the PE exam in North Carolina because NY rejected my application and I was already too far into studying to give up. Anyway, I ended up passing my exam (yay!) but now I need to apply to NC. I can't find what NC considers as engineering experience. I started my career working for a contractor, but now work for a structural design firm. Is NC not going to count my construction experience? Does anyone know what I should do here? The form (http://www.ncbels.org/forms/ncengapp.pdf) that they have on their website has two columns for work experience, time in design and time doing other work. But you can now apply using the NCEES website. Just curious if anyone has any advice. Thanks!

  12. Chemical PE

    Just wanted to share, something that helped me a lot to study is the "PE Chemical Reference Handbook", available for free from NCEES: The PE Chemical Reference Handbook is now available for download. It contains charts, formulas, tables, and other information that may help you answer questions on the PE Chemical exam. However, it does not contain all information required to answer every question; theories, conversions, formulas, and definitions that examinees are expected to know have not been included. Log into MyNCEES to download your free copy. The only downside is that you have to print it out...
  13. Release this week?

    My buddy who ,called SC on Friday and was told that it could be as early as this week. It would SUCK!!! if you didnt pass
  14. Hello everyone! Like a lot of people here, I'm applying to take my PE Exam and ran into a little trouble with the engagement/references portion of the application. The preface: an individual who agreed to be my reference reviewed some samples of my work (they aren't part of the office I work at) asked for me to send the relevant paperwork to their address. After 2 weeks of not receiving the paperwork back in my snail-mail inbox, I wrote a quick email to them to confirm they received my paperwork; that was this past Tuesday. I still have not heard any response, unfortunately. The question: is it considered rude, pushy, or otherwise negative if I call and/or email them at least one more time in the coming week?
  15. GMD for more than 3 conductors

    I've seen 2 different equations from 2 different references for finding the GMD for 4 conductors. -one used (D12 x D23 x D13 x D14 x D24 x D34)^(1/4) -the other used (D12 x D23 x D13 x D14 x D24 x D34)^(1/6) i assume one of them is wrong? which one is correct? im leaning towards the 6 root one to be correct, can someone please confirm? what is the general eqn for n number of conductors? i assume nth root of the product of n possible distances. Thanks in advance for help.
  16. Hi everyone, This is my first post though I've been ransacking these forums for over a year now. A little background: I graduated with a BS degree in mechanical engineering in 2011. I never took the FE in school, it wasn't really encouraged for MEs. After graduation I got involved with the drinking water industry, primarily treatment plants and distribution system designs. My employer has really started to stress the fact that I should get my PE so I'll be eligible to move up in the ranks. That meant first taking the FE, which I studied my butt off for and by some miracle passed in May 2017 after being out of school for 6 years. My goal is to the PE exam in April 2018 but I am extremely undecided on which discipline to go for. I'm considering Mechanical: Thermal/Fluids or Civil: Water Resources & Environmental. Mechanical Pros: Looking at the NCEES specifications I'd say I feel fairly comfortable with about 50% of the material and at the very least recognize the other knowledge areas. Having just studied for the FE, topics like Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, and Thermodynamics are relatively fresh. Mechanical Cons: Thermo/Fluids were HARD in school for me so I can imagine the PE Exam has the potential to be downright horrendous. For all I know I may have bombed these sections in the FE and just gotten by on math, statics, strengths, etc. I don't know anyone who has taken it in the past - no study materials available ($$$) Civil Pros: More relative to my current work Most of my coworkers/friends have taken this route - and offered to let me have/borrow their study resources/references Easier (???) subject matters than Thermo/Fluids CivilCons: 70% of the topics on the NCEES specifications are completely new to me - the only topics I recognize are structures, groundwater, water quality, hydraulics, and drinking water distribution and treatment. I've never had any courses/experience in hydrology, storm water, waste water, soils, construction management etc. I guess it comes down to whether I should choose the devil I know vs. the devil I don't. Has anyone else ever been torn making a choice between the two and if so what did you decide? Any other MEs choose to take the Civil PE and if so what was it like teaching yourself all those non-ME topics from scratch? For those that took the ME Thermal/Fluids exam, how did the level of difficulty compare to the questions on the FE (for those that remember way back then..)? If you made it this far, thanks for reading! Any advice much appreciated.

  20. I failed my first attempt at the Civil PE - Structural Exam this past April. A bit of background about me: I did not graduate with a degree in Civil Engineering or Structural. I am a Biological Engineer with a focus in structural systems. I've been working four years as an engineer in a field of its own, utility design. Therefore, I don't have much exposure to anything civil or biological. The reason I chose the structural exam was because I enjoyed learning and taking structural courses in college. I figured the other disciplines will bore me. I took steel, wood, and multiple analysis courses. Additionally, there are so many more resources to help pass the civil exam than the biological exam. My first attempt, I completely bombed. However, I think it wasn't too bad given that I do not work in the field and only studied 2.5 months prior to the exam. It was really tough studying because I wasn't familiar with the majority of breadth topics, but knew the depth was going to be hard so I focused most of my studies on the depth. Below is my diagnostics. I would love to get any help possible. I'll be taking the PPI course again soon. I took it the first time, but I was so focused on studying for the depth, that I did not pay attention. I am hoping the second time around will be a pass. Any tips for someone who is not in the field to pass the Civil Structural? Changing disciplines is not an option. My work already paid for the thousands of dollars in course and reference materials.

  23. Induction Machine

    Hello, What equation is being used in the solution? (question from Kaplan sample exam) Is max torque synonymous to max power? In Graffeo's book I see the formula: Slip at which Pmax occurs at = Sp = Rrotor/(Rrotor + Zeq), where Zeq = Zmotor + Zstator. But this equation seems slightly different than the one used int he solution. Also, if you have good machine references (such as a formula sheet) to share it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
