Just wanted to say good luck to all of the people taking the PE in just 2 days!

As this is my 2nd attempt taking the test I thought I would share 1 piece of advice that I have learned from the second round of studying. The exam questions are not complicated once you figure out what they are asking for. If your solution is becoming complicated, long, and tedious....you are probably doing it wrong, or are miss understanding what they are asking for. READ every problem CAREFULLY!

For those of you that are super stressed about the test, relax. What's the worst that can happen?


:wave2:

Good Luck everyone!

Sparky07,

How similar are the NCEES sample questions to the real deal. I've read from others in the forum that they very similar; since you seem to ahve taken it not to long ago, I was wondering if you could share your opinion.

Thanks!

I would say they are very similar. I thought the questions were slightly harder on the actual exam, but not much.

This is my second attempt also. I think I will use today to make sure all of my books are tabbed and have no loose papers in them. Tomorrow I'll buy my lunch and pack my bags for Friday. Overall tomorrow should be a relaxing day. :D

Good luck to all the test-takers out there! Stay focused and determined. After all, this is what you have been preparing for for months on end. Thought I would post a few previous threads on the final week before the exam and what others were doing to prepare. There is also a link to a thread with a very detailed checklist for exam day. Some good suggestions there. :thumbs:
