    What happens if you get a perfect score?

    NCEES is likely to invite you to contribute to future exams !

    Does any one know with the switch to CBT in 2024, will the SE exam become all multiple choices?

    CIVIL PE practice exam

    I bought the "Civil PE Exam Breadth and Structural Depth Practice Exams" Version 2.0 by David Gruttadauria. As I remember it was a little easier than the actual exam. However, it's reasonably priced and is worth it for extra practice. For Goswami, I will agree improvement is needed, but the concepts behind on most of his problems are very valuable. For NCEES practice exam, make sure to get the errata, at least for Structural there was a lot of them.

    CA Seismic Practice Exams - Difficulty

    My version of Hiner workbook does not have his practice exams and I don't believe those are sold separately, so I'm looking to other resources..

    CIVIL PE practice exam

    I did Structural PM so I can only recommend AM stuff: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1983913685/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0 There's extra problems on their website with the purchase, good practice imo.. Also agree with the Goswami recommendation. Good luck!
  10. Howdy, for those that have taken any of the following practice exams as well as the CA Seismic exam, I have a question on the level of difficulty. Please respond with a number: 1 to 5 where 1 = way easier, 2 = somewhat easier, 3 = close to reality, 4 = somewhat harder, and 5 = way harder.

  11. @JCT.Cons. is there a joke in there that I missed.. in what world is the 8-hour considered easier than Seismic and Survey -_-?

    Exam Re-Take Limit? California...

    I think so, as in there is no limit. @CAPLS Kinda related, I have another question.. does California put an expiration date on the passing of the 3 exams required for its Civil PE (NCEES 8-hour, Seismic, and Survey)? As in one would have to take an exam that they already passed again just because not all 3 are passed within a specific time frame?

    Exam Expiration

    @mikesltj23If I were you I'd give it my all right now studying for April first. It's your last shot at it so might as well spend the whole year if need be! Best of luck... For me, I'm waiting for CBT 2024

    TX PE Civil 4th Attempt

    I've heard people having to wait a year for the 4th attempt in Texas, I don't have any direct experience with this though. I'd suggest weighting the pros and cons between Texas and a nearest (most convenient state) for a re-take. Best of luck, you'll get it !

    https://civilpepractice.com/ ?

    Yea I bought their book off Amazon and their site offers some extra practice problems with purchase of said book.. I liked it overall, some good extra practice to help me be more confident for the AM.. I'd recommend it - decent value.
