  1. Electrical PE Exam - Oct. 2017

    If you didn't pass don't be discouraged. I'm proof that it can happen after multiple tries. I didn't take the FE until I was 8 years removed from college. passed and took the PE the next cycle and failed. Took it again the next cycle and failed again. Got gun shy for 17 years. Finally decided to take it again in April 2014. Isolated myself for 5 months and finally passed. The big difference that time was the EB, internet and YouTube. It can be done.
  2. Electrical PE Exam - Oct. 2017

    I haven't forgot. Been busy but should be able to forward tonight or tomorrow
  3. Less Enthusiasm?

    True. There are also several other factors. A lot of doctors initially don't start off with great salaries. Think of the ones who slog their way in emergency rooms. Also the hours are crazy. If you look at the average salaries of all engineers to all physicians the amount is comparable. Some smaller market general practitioners actually make less. Now when it comes to surgeons, anesthesiologists, etc. they can make quite a bit. But their day-to-day routine is truly life or death. Not saying we don't deserve more, just saying in general the difference may not be that great.

  7. Special Applications Print outs?

    Maybe this will help someone in April 2018. Energy management info. I have a copy of that if needed. Just PM me your email. ANSI device numbers. Wikipedia has a full list of these. Power electronic circuit diagrams. I also have info on this. Power factor correction tables. That's included in my energy management info.
  8. Electrical PE Exam - Oct. 2017

    DGX is bringing sexy back.
  9. Electrical PE Exam - Oct. 2017

    So is DGX a Dollar General on steroids? Don't have any of those around here. (I know. Totally unrelated question.)
  10. One Week (+1 day) left

    In that order?
  11. Power PE Guide by Alex Graffeo

    I used it three years ago. Good supplement to other test materials. He did have some errors in my edition but he proved to be easily accessible and responded promptly to emails. I did purchase until about a month before the exam. Filled in the gaps. I recommend it.
  12. So...it's been a while...

    @jmbeck .........You're just down the hall!
  13. EE's Guide to PE Power error?

    I'll have to look at that one later but for what it's worth the author is good about responding to questions. His email should be in the book or on the website.
  14. NEC reference cards ok to bring?

    On a related note Complex Imaginary's NEC drill book is also a great resource. This late in the game I'd be wary of throwing off my routine if you already feel comfortable enough. Just another resource if needed.
  15. Good advice on scheduling so far. Two things I would add. (1) Set stretch goals as far as to how many hours you want to spend a week. Strive to reach them but if you don't, since they were stretch, you won't feel guilty. (2) I did not use PSA (Grainger) that much but here's good advice regarding that. In a lot of textbooks the end-of-chapter problems have the shorter and easier ones at the beginning of the question section. The average PE problem is six minutes long. Therefore those shorter problems could be comparable to exam problems. That's not a lock, and I don't think you'll miss much by not doing them, but they could be helpful. I've found that PSA has some pretty good transmission line problems. Please use this advice for good and never for evil.
