    In my spare time I enjoy experimenting to reproduce Tesla's Blackbox and trying to complete Einstein's Unified Field Theory.<br /><br />If have a few too many and get really crazy, I like to poke holes in the theories of Hawkings and Michio Kaku.<br /><br />Favorite books: "Quantum Mechanics for Morons" and "Women: Aliens or Demons?"
  1. Umm, its for a good reason. Stuff can fall down or blow up. go boom.
  2. I used the MGI EE Prepardness course mainly, it was great. Took Power module 15 years after college, 12 years after FE, studied for 4 months, 2-4 hours a day. Don't know if its still available.

  3. Shima, Leverage's post was from two years ago, you might not get a response. Here's a book list that might help: BOOK LIST Computer Module Schaum's Computer networking, Computer Architecture, Software Engineering and Operating Systems.

  4. You took theApril 11 exam and knew you passed by May 26!? Man they have gotten fast with the results!!
  5. I took the Power module and used the MGI EE PE readiness course along with the book list below. The MGI course was the best prep for the Power module i've seen.

  6. Make sure you check out the MGI Electrical PE Readiness course BEFORE you pay big bucks. I used it and passed first time. Check any of my older posts where I dicuss this ad nauseum. PDF advertisment: http://www.pelicense.org/PEReadiness-NSPE.pdf I used the MGI course and some key text books and was well covered.
  7. I'm checking around to apply for MBA admission. My 9 credits from MS Engineering Management are 12 years old, so I guess I have to lose them and start over, so going for a MBA. Any input? Thanks.
  8. I think Kaplan stinks, the only book I liked was the Kaplan EE Referenced review. Also... Fundamentals of EE (By Bobrow) - Goes into the "depth" of the AM stuff that EERM does not, so it complements it perfectly. More than you'll care to know. NCEES Electrical and Computer Study Guide Schaum's Basic EE (or similar Schaums, there's 3 or 4) Power Systems Analysis (Grainger) Electric Machines, Drives and Power Systems (Wildi) Schaum's Electric Power Systems & Schaum's Electric Machinery NEC Code for Code questions. "Public Lighting" & "IESNA Illumination Handbook" for lighting questions(there aren't too many). I also used the MGI SmartPros EE PE Readiness. I'm not sure if they still sell it, but its pricey. The IEEE PE Review DVDs are great, but also pricey. Stay away from the Dr. Blank videos, they're not good. Buy one and you'll see. Good luck!
  9. Here's a few: Computer Module Schaum's: Computer networking, Computer Architecture, Software Engineering and Operating Systems. Also (these are more expensive): Computer Engineering: Hardware Design by M. Morris Mano • ISBN-10: 0131629263 • ISBN-13: 978-0131629264 Computer Organization and Design: The Hardware/Software Interface by David A. Patterson , John L.

  10. I feel old already having to say I took the "old format" exam, but here's the AM breadth and PM Power (I won't list Computers or ECC because so few take them) Here's my hit list: AM BREADTH EERM - Probobly the best "Breadth" book out there. Fundamentals of EE (By Bobrow) - Goes into the "depth" of the AM stuff that EERM does not, so it complements it perfectly. More than you'll care to know. NCEES Electrical and Computer Study Guide Schaum's Basic EE (or similar Schaums, there's 3 or 4) One good text on Electronics (transistors, Op Amps), one Communications (basic) and one Digital (binary, hex, chips, micro, clock cycles, K-map). EE Quick Reference (other board or Kaplan's Referenced Review by Bentley) PM POWER Depth Power Systems Analysis (Grainger) Electric Machines, Drives and Power Systems (Wildi) Schaum's Electric Power Systems & Schaum's Electric Machinery NEC Code for Code questions. "Public Lighting" & "IESNA Illumination Handbook" for lighting questions. I also printed and bound lots of stuff from Wikipedia ranging from DC motors, Generators, Computers, load flow, etc. I used the MGI EE PE course from Smartpros, which was pretty brutal, but I passed first time out after 15 years out of college so it was worth the torture.
  11. I don't think I'd bother, especially if you've already been studying with the version you have. I didn't use the EERM much either.
  12. I've used HPs since 1985 starting with the HP-15c, up through the HP-48SX (the best ever). I bought the HP-33 and put it right back on ebay after 1 week of wasting time with it. I'm a long time HP fan, but the HP-33 is not even a true HP, IT SUCKS! I wouldn't use it for a door stop. I wouldn't even use it throw at someone I hate. The only thing I would use it for is to throw at the idiot who designed it, who is someone I hate, so cancel the last statement. I bought the Casio for the exam. I was nervous about not using RPN, but it was the best move I ever made. just give yourself plenty of time to adjust if you're a die hard RPN HP fan.
