Hi all - I will be sitting for the October exam (2 weeks, wow). Anyway, I have gone through the six minute solutions (all the breadth and transportation depth), the transportation NCEES sample exam. I have been reading, tabbing and everything else under the sun, including taking a review class. So, as we are now 2 weeks out, I am wondering what else I can do to really hammer down the depth, especially some of the more obscure subjects. I guess I mean things that are a little bit more obscure to me, like traffic signals (i assume timing?), intersection analysis, and planning. Going through all of those practice problems, there really has not been great coverage of these types of problems. So, can anyone provide insight as to what would be the best way to prepare for these types of questions (without any details about actual exam questions, blah, blah, blah)? Sorry for the long post. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Jack, it sounds like you will pass. I wouldn't worry too much at this point. It sounds like you 'got it'. If I can give you some advice of what to do in these final days is: know the MUTCD (and probably the AASHTO books) subject content inside and out. And I don't mean memorizing details, I just mean scan the books and TOCs and indexes so that you know which book covers which topic and even which chapter you saw it in so that you can flip to it quickly on the exam. I remember a few questions that were answered from the MUTCD about a topic no one would be able to answer from memory but, if you know where to go, there's your answer in b&w. Good luck!
