so how did it go? Inquiring minds want to know.

The afternoon was definitely more difficult for me. There were probably 3-4 that I flat guessed on. A couple look-up problems which should have been easy for me to find, were not. 2 of the water questions gave me more trouble than I expected. Generally speaking though, I never got hung up time-wise, and I still feel like I got a decent portion correct. Again, taking into account some oversights and mistakes, I'm going to guess that I got somewhere between 55-70% on this half.
That being said, I'm either very wrong in my estimation or I should have got at least 60 correct. I hope I'm right!
Edit: I just realized that this post was meant for Chemical PE testers. Sorry. I noticed the post on the main EB page and didn't check to see which section it was in.

I studied a total about 200 hours for 3 months leading up to the exam, so I put in a decent amount of time studying, but I could have studied more. I just don't know how I could have studied for qualitative, based on experience type questions. Any good reference material for this kind of stuff? My college text books (plant design, etc.) failed me for these questions.
I'm very interested to what others thought about the chemical exam. I feel 60/40 that I passed...we'll see

Anyone felt the same way?

hoping for positive results for you all!

Morning was fairly easy. I'm confident I've got at least 30 correct in the morning. Afternoon was a different animal altogether. Let's just say I hope I've got at least 20 right in the afternoon.
Anyone felt the same way?
I wasn't as confident as you about the morning portion. There were a few easy ones that I know i should have got, but my mind just went blank. I feel a little more confident than you in the afternoon section. I thought that the afternoon section started off kind of easy, then got really tough. There was some qualitative stuff that I've never seen in my life.
I'm aiming for a 25 morning, 25 afternoon split, so about a total of 50 like you. Hopefully that cuts it. I've spent some time reading other threads about diagnostic reports, and raw scores vs adjusted scores, and cut scores, and "70% to pass" and it seems like nobody really knows what it takes.
The passing rate for Chem E's is really high comparatively, so my hope is that the exam is tougher than others and the passing score is lower...that's just what I'm telling myself to calm my nerves while playing the waiting game, lol.

Concerning the passing rate, my logic was the opposite from your's. I figured since our passing rate for chemical engineering was so high, there would be no "curving". In other words, I'm expecting at least 56 out of 80 questions correct as the passing score. Let's just hope I'm wrong.

The worst part is, if i fail, i really don't know how/what to study differently so that i pass next time.

Please advice if you found PE Chem sample questions (full tests) sources (besides NCEES, ppi) that helped you preparing for PE Chemical exam.
