  1. another +1 for EET's seismic. I took it back in April and his practice problems are very close to what I had on the test. Some of them are pretty much the same problems but different numbers. It also helped a lot when he emphasizes during the lectures the different ways they can ask the same question. There were a few "backwards" questions on the test, meaning they give you the end results that you typically get from going through the equations and then ask you something from the beginning, theoretically or numerically. Also, I felt mine had more theoretical questions the last time compared to the previous exams, but it was emphasizing on different topics all together. If topic A was heavy on the previous exam and topic B was only a few in between, it was reversed on the next exam.
  2. We found out it is cheaper and better to print the PDFs and do fastback binding at the local print shop. We were able to bound up to ~200 to 300 sheets per fastback and it cost about 4 bucks per book. Binders: You have to buy binders, hole punch, hope the paper doesn't rip during studying / the test, the binders are bulky and nonstackable, and very awkward to flip through the sheets in a large binder. Fastback flips like a book and overall just cheaper and easier to use.
  3. Is there a guide / tutorial to input the equations into this calculator?

  4. HP35s and surveying programs. the hours i spend typing it in helped me learn the materials and concepts at the same time. where it shine on the test is the time you save on the straight up calcs. one of the program was set up so you can plug in 2 or 3 variables for any curve and it will spew out all the data for that curve. same with vertical curves. traversing and stationing was all plug and chuck. it gave me a lot more time to do the theory questions.

    I was opposite of you. Passed 8hr and Survey on the same cycle and finally got the seismic this time.

    85384 - Highest number before thursday. 86034 - Current highest number. 650 seems kinda low, maybe they are still releasing the numbers or waiting for fingerprints.

    I don't think so, I believe they will only issue you a number once the fingerprint is done.

    thanks for the heads up, just found out my number too!

    Loved the Irvine Institute of Tech with John D. Pavlik. That plus hp35s with the surveying program really cut down on the time wasted with the simple problems. Plug and chug for a good amount of them. http://www.softwarebydzign.com/index.php?pg=prod6
