October PE what did you think

The morning civil and afternoon Geotech were what I had expected.
Please share your thoughts

I took Civil PE, a lot of the concepts can be found in CERM or NCEES FE Supplied reference handbook, in the PM Structural Depth it was mostly code dependent. I did count my calculated answers that match the choices, in the AM 8 of 10 ques I was able to get it but in wastewater, it was tough I have to guess most the of items, probably 2 in geotech and 1 in transpo and 3 in construction and structural AM it was good.
PM structural was tougher than expected some items I couldnt find from the codes, going back and forth with different codes are time consuming even if I tab them.
I hope to pass.

The morning was very simple and straight forward. I felt very confident that I did well when I left the exam.
I'm praying that I passed!!! Hopefully the results come in before Christmas.

I felt very, very well prepared for the AM portion. I referenced the CERM, a surveying textbook, a soils textbook, and the AASHTO Green Book.
I thought the afternoon was much more tricky. Nearly everything that I could find was in a soils textbook, and a foundations textbook. I wished I had a reference that was more specific to seismic loading.
