  3. New York PE Comity

    Getting licensed in another state is just a matter of paperwork. Do you have a NCEES record created? I have multiple licenses, some are by comity and some are by endorsement. I think it more of a word game than anything else. Maybe there is a difference in the state language or something. You'll still have to renew it and all that jazz. Good luck.

  4. You are never going to find any sample test to satisfy what you are looking for. You need to use the test to learn the theory and concepts. I passed by compiling samples in groups so I could have a reference point during the exam. Sample tests suck and are full of errors. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. What 'power systems' are you using as a reference? These questions should be in there. Zone 2 is considered as back-up even tho it will still see a zone 1 fault. Zone 1 is typically 85% of the distance and zone 2 is 115% if my memory is correct. If the fault is close to the relaying, the zone 1 relay should be set to trip first with a delay on the zone 2 relaying. Also, if the zone 1 relay fails to trip, the remote end's zone 2 relay will also see the fault which should clear the line from both ends on a zone 2 fault.

  7. Decoupling experience from taking exam

    I took the decoupled PE exam last April and have read these warnings non-stop since a few months before I took it. Ohio is the only state that I have read actual accounts of having to re-take exams. I think LA has similar warnings. It is just advice to people that may need a multi state license in the future. I imagine Ohio will change their policy in time, they just haven't yet. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. Decoupling experience from taking exam

    When I took the test, there were two guys (CO & GA) who were licensed but taking it in Ohio die to not meeting Ohio's requirements. So, it does happen. Ohio is one of the state's that won't accept a 'decoupled' license for comity. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

  10. I failed the POWER PE Please Help!

    The thing that helped me to pass was categorizing example problems and notes according to the exam breakdown. Which essentially means that the same example might show up in 3 or 4 sections. It helped reinforce the formulas needed for a particular style problem, plus you have all the notes at your fingertips when you flip to the section. I also made comments as to which reference covered the particular topic best. It worked for me after 3 attempts at the "do practice problems nonstop for 4 months" mentality. No one way is good for everyone, you just have to find the way that works for you. Organization was my key to success.

    I hope you get it this time. I know the pain of having to restudy over and over again to get this done. You can do it! Hanging around here after multiple attempts does not make one a troll.
  12. Happy Birthday CSB!
