  3. First time...was driving to a meeting when I got the NCEES email. I'd already logged-in before hitting the road, so only had to refresh the page to see the fail. I don't recall being upset at the time, more angry. I think the tears came in the following week. Second time, I'd felt better about the test overall, but was afraid of my confidence. I was sitting in my office on this site waiting for NCEES to release GA results. I checked IMMEDIATELY. The big green Pass! I started shaking and crying. I screamed out to announce it to the entire office! I called the hubs, I texted my parents. I went home and had a few whiskey drinks. It was a good day.
  4. I totally logged in everyday for weeks...just in case. You think it's bad now, though. Wait until NCEES does release results, but then your state decides to wait a couple of days before letting them release your results. Pass or Fail, it's the longest couple of days of your life. For the Oct 2017 exam release, NCEES surprised everyone and released results about a week earlier than expected. Best of luck to everyone!!
  5. EET all the way. Just wondering though, did you take the WRE test or the Environmental test? Per the test specifications, there shouldn't be any air quality questions on the WRE test. There's some great advice in this thread, and I give my review on the EET course. It was worth every penny! As far as references, for the depth, the EET notebook was pretty much all I needed.
  6. UPDATE: A few books have been sold Here's the updated list of what's still available: Lindeburg, Civil Engineering Solved Problems, 6th Ed.

  7. 3 or *fewer*. It's a good thing the PE didn't test my grammar
  8. I have the following Civil PE and WRE Depth materials for sale (see pics). All of them are like-new with no markings/highlighting. I originally planned to take the exam back in 2013, so some of the materials were purchased then (to the tune of $700+). I purchased the newer NCESS practice exam in 2017 when I actually got around to studying for (and passing, YAY!!) the exam. I've included the copyright and ISBN numbers for each. Take it all off my hands for $320. Free shipping for 4 books or more. $5 shipping for 3 or less. Paypal preferred. PM me with questions or offers. I'll update if/when books are purchased.

Thanks y'all, and happy studies!!
  9. Awesome! Best of luck to you - you totally got this!! Make sure to do those practice problems! Well, I won't say that. Ha...I mean, that darn test really makes you question your ability to add 2 and 2 without questioning yourself (or is that just me?? ). But I was definitely 1000x more confident than the first time I took it. Unlike my first attempt, in the afternoon, I got through about 20 of the depth problems, confidently, in the first 1.5 hours of the test. It still took me the full 4 hrs to complete, but having those +/- 20 out of the way gave me the time I needed for the harder ones. I put a question mark beside the ones I wasn't absolutely 100% sure on, and when I was done, there were probably 8-10 question marks. For me, those tended to be the concept questions.
  10. Check out my profile to see posts from some of my other reviews of the EET course. I did SOPE my first attempt and the EET (WRE depth only) for my second, successful attempt. Yes, you can watch them whenever. It's best to try to keep yourself on a schedule. I personally made up a spreadsheet of all the videos and tried to keep myself on-track with watching and completing problems within a set time frame (trying to complete them weekly as if I was watching live classes).
  11. EET gives you the option to do live online or on-demand. The live classes are all-day Saturdays and there are additional videos during the week to review problems. I personally did the on-demand option (at a lesser cost IIRC) because of my work/family schedule. Along with the videos, EET provides a ton of practice problems. They're quality problems - very much like the ones you'll see on the test. The key to success is to do ALL of the problems. So, yes, there's definitely additional time needed on top of watching the videos. You'll need to devote the same if not more time to doing practice problems. For the WRE, I didn't need to spend time reviewing other materials beyond what the EET class provided (this may differ for different depth modules depending on what the instructor advises).
  12. I'm also WRE. I took SOPE the first time and EET (WRE depth only) the second time. I went ahead and signed up for the free repeat with SOPE - and then printed the new notes and reviewed them before the test - I didn't have time to rewatch the on-demand videos. The EET WRE depth is worth every penny. I couldn't have passed without it. There wasn't a WRE topic on the test that EET had not covered.
  13. Sorry it wasn't a pass this time, but you'll get 'em next time! Yes. Once NCEES has your results posted, there will be a link to the diagnostic report on your dashboard.
  14. I'm Civil-WRE I took SOPE On-Demand the first time and failed. The second time, I took the EET WRE Depth On-Demand course (thanks to EB recommendations). Doing a live webinar, if your work/family situation allows, would probably help keep studying on a better schedule. I chose the On-Demand because baby twins :-). SOPE was okay for the breadth, but the WRE depth review wasn't sufficient, IMO. The first time I took it, there were items in the test spec that weren't even covered by SOPE. EET's material is based on the test specs. Comparing the two, the EET WRE depth review is much more comprehensive (I can't speak for their breadth review). The EET binder is much better organized - which helps save time on the test. I barely used the CERM for the WRE questions (maybe not even at all). Many of the concept questions were actually covered in the review, so for many it was just a matter of double checking myself to make sure I'd chosen the right answer. The instructor for EET's WRE, Nazrul, is probably the best instructor I've ever had. I can honestly say that I am already a better WRE engineer because of EET's course. For the money (the costs are about the same), EET is a much better investment. The binder(s) alone is worth the money. You have to put in the work, though. EET provided a ton of excellent (quantity and quality) practice problems. You have to do them ALL and make sure you grasp the concepts.
