May be a little late for this exam cycle, but I thought this very helpful index might come in handy.

Kaplan Sample exam is:
Electrical & Computer Engineering: PE Sample Exam, 2nd Edition

This sample exam is not similar to the ncees exam, different format. it will help to master subjects but it is way more harder. theres probably 6 parts to one question, and i beleive they all relate to each other.

i would reconmend this book after u do all 6 minute solutions, EERM practice problems and the NCEES practice exam.

I wouldn't recommend the Kaplan book at all. The questions are way harder, structured differently, and ask stuff that you will likely never encounter on the real exam. Whenever I opened the Kaplan exam or practice problem books, I got discouraged because I did not do well on those problems...but I passed the exam. I guess if you could work the Kaplan problems in your sleep, you are over-prepared for the exam, but I wouldn't recommend the books because of the blow to your self-esteem if you are adequately prepared for the exam.

On NCEES question #529, can anybody help me understand why the 480V is being divided by sqrt(3) in the solution? I understand they are subtracting the Voltage Drop from the panel voltage, but I can't figure out why the voltage is being divided by sqrt(3). I would really appreciate any help with this.

Thanks in advance!

On Example # 22 on this NEC Handout, I don't understand part of the solution.
As stated:



The part for the 30hp motor, I think it should be = 80 amps x 2 = 160 amps

and don't follow 80 amps - 80A + (80x125%) = 180 amps

I'm not a code expert and I am sure one will come by soon, but I THINK the answer is "Conductors supplying two or more motors shall have an ampacity equal to the sum of the full load current of all the motors plus 25% of the highest rated motor in the group"

Therefore, I believe the last part should be 80 amps + (80x125%) = 80 + 80 + (0.25*80) = 180 amps, which seems to agree with the rest of the solution.

I'd say you hit pretty close to the mark.

Article 430.24 of the 2008 NEC:
QUOTE
Conductors supplyin several motors, or a motor(s) and other load(s), shall have an ampacity not less than 125 percent of the full-load current rating of the highest rated motor plus the sum of the full-load current ratings of all the other motors in the group, as determined by 430.6(A), plus the ampacity required for the other loads.

The NCEES practice exams were updated in 2009 or so to reflect a change to the design of the exam.  This thread/index was started with the pre-'09 book.

 

The following is true for the "Power" book.  I'm not sure if it holds for the other two disciplines.

 

In the current book, the 100 series questions are the same as the 500 series questions from the old book.  Example New book question #135 should be a match for question #535 in the old book.

 

The 500 series questions in the newer book are all new and have no equivalent in the old book.

 

If you are looking to see if a 100 series question has been answered in the new book, look for both 1xx and 5xx and you may find what you are looking for.  If it's a 500 series question you are looking for, pay attention to the date when the thread was started.

Has anybody worked 140 in the post-2009 book (540 in the old book). And can explain the solution ot the setpoint of relay CV problem?

 

I though it was a current transformer and you would be finding the decimal value on the wye side that would correspond to 5v on the setpoint. So 5(1/120)=0.0416. But there answer is V(ng)=(120*5)/1000. Where does this 1000 come from? And why is this the answer?

 

Thanks in advance!
