  1. Yesterday
  2. Depends on a lot of factors. Need for the license, how many others are licensed at your firm in your state, what your current compensation is and how that relates to your peers etc etc. Bottom line, if you feel you deserve it based on this accomplishment, it never hurts to ask and provide your justification.
  3. Hi , thanks for your message, sorry I just read it. Awesome! Actually, same he re. I am studying right now. Let's help each other out, I just PM'd you. Cheers!
  4. in NCEES problem 601(a) to design a CMU for axial and flexure, the solution used an interaction equation for combined stresses (Pu/phi.Pn + Mu/phi.Mn). I haven't seen such interaction equation in before in concrete or masonry codes or textbooks. My understanding that this problem should be solved by finding the natural axis for the transformed section or using the interaction diagrams. any thoughts?
  5. Thanks for all the advice I really appreciate it! Awesome, I got it printed and bound! I appreciate you telling me about those chapters, they seem to be what I need.
  6. Anyone hate it when you accidentally click on the crazy chic from HS “story” and then worry if she’s gonna stalk your house and kill your pet rabbit?
  7. Last week
  8. Not sure if you've solved this yet but looks like it could be a Macomber joist? There's some old catalogs/info on them on this site: http://www.slideruleera.net/contributions.html
  9. Adds complexity but also motivation (for me). They give me a reason to be my best!
  10. It was good. Had a handful of hunches that were dead wrong lol
  11. General consensus is that the results are all over the map on this one. There are a lot of factors, one of which is whether or not your company sees your license as valuable (some companies require it, others don’t, some consider it a plus, etc.) I got an 11% raise about 6 months after passing my exam and getting my license, but ultimately it’s because I reached out to my boss and asked for it; not the easiest thing in the world to do. There are a lot of salary-related questions and topics elsewhere on this board that might answer this question for you more fully.
  12. So the bottom line is process is arduous. Far and few would put themselves through this process. Shouldn't we start earning $10-20K more than before? I haven't seen that light bulb moment yet.
  13. The family definitely added a level of complexity to the is whole adventure...
  14. Hi everyone, I had a quick question regarding the timeline of the approval for the seismic and surveying exams. I'm confused about the quarter for which you're required to take the test. How is it determined? Once your application is approved, you receive an authorization to test for the NEXT quarter, is it correct? Or can it be for the same quarter if it's still early in this quarter? Thanks a lot for your help.

  16. Aw I really liked the third season! What did you not like about it?
  17. I'll be taking TFS in October as well. Central time zone. I'm definitely open to keeping in touch. I need someone I can talk to about problems I'm having trouble with, general things about the exam, etc. Feel free to PM me.
  18. So I just got my number, but it's not on the website yet, but should be by the end of the day. So if anybody wants to know, it's a 7 week average.
  19. Even at the age of 31 it was taking its toll on me. Combine that with working and commuting then it's a nightmare. I was able to do it with the FE right after I graduated because I didn't have a job and I was fresh out of school. But not being in school for a while and constantly working makes it harder. Luckily I don't have a wife or kids. I don't know how people with a family do it.
  20. You are also awesome, @ChaosMuppetPE
  21. According to discussions with the license evaluator that I was corresponding with no applicants who passed their exam in July are going to make it onto this weeks licensing. The next time they will run licensing is on August 30th.
  22. I'm very relieved to hear CBT is more similar to the PPI questions than the NCEES practice questions
  23. if you want more disappointment, watch the new season of GLOW
