    1st quarter 2019 approvals

    hm it has been a couple weeks and still haven't heard back for the approval of my seismic re-file application.. but I think they'll just let me know about the prometric authorization soon..
  2. dang that's a lot of passes haha.. I did 3 passes.. #1 questions I can easily do without much effort #2 questions I can do with some effort #3 questions that I have no idea how to do and/or would take a long time --> educated guesses

    October 2018 - Funny Exam Stories

    There was a guy spending at least half an hour in the back three-hole punching his way thru his entire materials... hogging the damn thing thats supposed to be shared by everyone.. talk about being unprepared
  4. also, KNOW the stuff you actually bring into the exam room.. shouldn't be wasting time figuring out something you're not familiar with.. I made it a point to go thru enough problems that I could pass with only the problems I already have an idea (at least somewhat) how to attack it.. the goal of the exam is to determine sufficient competency, I don't think you need to solve super involved problems to just pass..
  5. sounds like you have all the pieces together (SoPE for AM, EET for PM).. just need to spend the time solving problems now.. try to be as familiar with the codes as you can.. I don't mean reading the code like a textbook, but definitely know your table of contents and the index.. study where you don't have to clean up after each study session.. eliminate distractions obviously.. get your hands on a few practice exams and do those mimicking exam conditions (table space, strictly 8 hours and an hour lunch etc).. I'd recommend the following materials: - [Indranil_Goswami]_Civil_Engineering_PE_Practice_Exam - NCEES practice exam - Civil PE Exam Breadth and Structural Depth Practice Exams and Reference Manual: 80 Morning Civil PE Practice Problems and 80 Structural Depth Practice Problems. (Core Concepts Version 2.0) 2nd Edition – 2017 - Civil Engineering PE Practice Exams: 2 Full Breadth Exams – 2018

    EET depth only would be a good choice for ya.. best thing I did right was putting in the time to solve problems..

    Pass Rates Updated NCEES

    Some people seem to think lower pass rate means that exam cycle is harder.. it could very well mean the skill/competency level is lower while overall exam difficulty stays the same..

    California Results

    I'd create a topic in the civil/structural sub forum and post your diagnosis and the way you studied etc so people can advice..

    California Results

    did it after 3 attempts on civil/structural.. granted, I didn't study right (just tried to do "enough") before.. if you have the basics and PUT IN THE TIME UP FRONT for SERIOUS studying, you WILL pass!
