  2. Thanks, Bean! I am very relieved (and breathing normal again) Good luck!

    TX-PE results?

    I am so sorry, Shanks. I know this is not the time, but you are very close, so don't give up. (i finally passed this time. It was my third attempt. 63, 69, ... 78!!!!)
  4. The long, drought is over, ... I PASSED ... third time around ... 78 HALLELUJAH!!!!
  5. I totally agree with your wisdom (both Bean and Mechguy), and it is also what I have done. I just like to analyze data (I’m weird like that). It also helps to pass the time while waiting for the results. I am going crazy here, and if I did not pass this time, ... I don’t know how well I will deal with it. I am a pretty old guy compared to most potential PEs. I am almost out of time (literally).
  6. He didn't say everyone who fails gets a 69, he said that people have gotten a 69 with several different numbers of correct answers. And I don't really see what's "insensitive" about it. That happens because of different tests for different disciplines. If you compare apples to apples, the only difference in scores to correct answers would be due to rounding. That would only be a difference of one correct answer. In other words, if two ME-ThFluids both received a score of 69, their difference in correct answers would be the same or off by only one. That's all. My point here is to collect some hard data, other than my own personal experience. That data must come from those who have had the experience of failing and comparing that to their diagnostic. Those who have not had that experience will not have any data to add. lol, (really)
  7. I found bob's initial post to be a little confrontational with a long-established member of this forum. Such confrontations are usually to be avoided by n00bs. The wait is getting to me! I sincerely apologize. This is a great board and I do not wish to introduce negative feelings Again, I apologize. It does sting to receive a 69. I only wanted to restore hope to those, like me, who made a 69. I am close. For someone to say that everyone who fails gets a 69, no matter how many/few correct answers, is a little insensitive. Congratulations to all who have passed, and good luck to those who are still waiting! And to those who failed, no matter what the grade, never give up!
  8. Some states do the right thing and reveal scores. Although it is an NCEES policy for NCEES to not do so. But NCEES has to give the state boards the grades. And some state boards give out the grades. If you fail, you can take your diagnostic report, along with your grade, and calculate exactly the number of right/wrong answers you got for each category of questions. One engineerboards.com member erroneously said, "People with 52, 53, 54, 55, and 56 ALL got the same 69." Well, ... He is wrong! I would like to poll all members who have failed the PE, received their grade, and compared it to the diagnostic, to "Reply" to this post with your own experience. " A man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument."

    It's too late for me, ... but I still second that emotion! (three times is enough for any man, ... right)

    NCEES

    This post is for "A Few Good Examinees" The last time I called NCEES, it went something like this: NCEES: You want answers? rob8rich: I think I'm entitled to it! NCEES: You want answers? rob8rich: I want the truth! NCEES: You can't handle the truth. Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns! Who is going to do it? You? You? So, I hung up. Maybe they were right. After all, the last two times that the results were finally released, I stood there for a moment, frozen in time. I could hardly bring myself to open it. I could not handle the truth.

    TX-PE results?

    For all Texas ME, PE candidates waiting on your test results, I have attached a spreadsheet that might interest you! Basically, it compares and charts the past results from the TBPE website, but only ME-vs-PE pass/fail rates between 2001 and 2008. (this is how I passed the time while waiting on results last year) TBPE_01_08_Exam_Data_.xls Rob

    TX-PE results?

    That is a good question! I have taken the spring exam twice (09, 10), and the fall exam once (09). With very little targeted preparation, I made a 63 on the Apr 09, and with very focused preparation a 69 on the Oct 09. I definitely think the April tests had an easier morning than in October, but a slightly harder afternoon. This is only valid for the ME with thermal fluids.

    I hear ya... I received a 69, two times in a row! Then I finally figured out how to study correctly and got an 85. That's awesome! There is hope ...

    TX-PE results?

    Last December, I was in Christmas Party and then after-party, during which results got posted. Good thing that I didn't have internet on my phone, , and checked my result when I got home....quite a few beers made a score of 67 less-depressing, but the story was different the next morning.. Yeah, it was not a very Merry Christmas. This is my third time. I am numb, ... however, after all this time to think about it, it still feels like I passed. Maybe today we will know.
