    I wonder how that feels? WHERE THE HECK IS MY LETTER? LOL On Monday I am going to march up to my Boss and demand a raise. Depending on his reaction and outcome, I'll know if this bloody thing was worth busting my arse for...

    Thanks Guys

    After a hellish wait I got the letter in CA saying I passed. I would like to express my deep appreciation to Guys/Gals like Matt-NM, Shaggy, JoeysVee, Mech Guy, Road Guy, Mary and many more for their wise council and words of encouragement. You Guys made a difference. This board rocks...

    Now that I passed it is rather anti-climactic.

    I live in Sacramento but work in Portland, Oregon. Just heard from the Old Lady in Sacramento... I passed. I did Mechanical with MD in the afternoon. To all the Guys/Gals who did not pass.... hang in there. I'll be on these boards cheering you on.

    If I pass... I'll visit the local watering hole, get leg-less and crawl home on all fours. Come to think of it... I'll do the same if I fail.

I will sell for $75 including shipping. If interested e-mail me at ratnagk@gmail.com Thanks, Mike.
  9. The materials I have for sale are: 1. Dr. Blanks's Home Study Video Course for FE: This is the best material that I bought for the FE. You don't need a review class if you have this course. It would be very beneficial for a person that has about 2 - 3 months study time. I have 26 VHS tapes of the course. It is based on PPI's FERM manual by Lindeburg. Dr. Blank covers the theory on one tape and solves all typical exam problems from the book on the 2nd tape. Basically you have 13 tapes covering theory and 13 tapes solving exam problems (26 tapes). Please go his website at this link for more information. http://www.drblank.com/copevid3.htm scroll down to see a description of the classes. If you click on the cost link you will see that 13 lessons (VHS Tapes) = 39 hour package costs $670 + $40(shipping). Total cost $710. The only missing tapes are Dynamics and Mechanics of Materials I. I got Mech. of Material II tapes because it covers most of the FE material. I am planning on selling this course for $250 + shipping $25. 2). I also have a CD-ROM PE Refresher Course by James Kamm that PPI used to sell at $260 + Shipping. No it is sold under the Smartpro licence fopr $260 + shipping. http://ppi2pass.com/ppi/PPIShop?ct=FEEXAM&...FECDR3&psp= Check it out and you will see how good it is. This is around 10 hours of lectures of explanations and problem solving using great graphics. There are additional problems/solutions for practice too. I am selling it for $100 (incl. shipping). The CD's worth just for the thermo, fluids and material science sections alone. If you buy both items I will sell for $300 + $25.00 (Shipping). I will also e-mail you printed material in PDF format from a FE class for free. E-mail me at ratnagk@gmail.com if interested. I use PayPal. Thanks, Mike.

    MERM

    I agree. The MERM is out of date for the current exam. The content is in line with the old format and the practice problems are also more suited for the old essay type exam format. The Machine Design section simply sucks. There is also a lot of fluff that's not needed for the PE. It's time Lindeburg or someone else came up with a more upto date reference for the PE. Having said that I agree with the other posters that it is the best out of current references out in the market. I sure hope that someone comes up with a more upto date reference.
  12. I am retracting the remark about the review class. In the past I was informed that their classes were not good and canceled last April's review class. But a co-worker and a few others have recommended their Northern California classes highly. He went to a class given by Rich Davis in Nor CAL and was impressed. He passed on his first attempt. The pass rate of his class was quite high. I am eating crow now and just signed up for a class, cos I need it... bad.
  13. Joey, I sent you a message. Please check it out and respond. Thanks, Mike.
