    CA Civil - Seismic and Surveying

    First time taker Passed 8 hr Structural and Surveying Failed seismic I just graduated. I was planning to use PE status to get some leverage when applying for a job, now I will have to wait 6 months Congrats to everyone who passed..Best of luck to future candidates.

    I took SoPE, I passed first time. Did not do anything other than SoPE (not even CERM, only skimmed through), but I have strong knowledge of basic mechanics and structural analysis. I also had my PhD defense at that time so I could not afford to invest much time on PE. Including SoPE, I would devoted 130-150 hrs at max for PE prep. You get 24 hr depth sessions from SoPE, which was really good. Just sitting with them and doing problems, saves lot of time. I had opted for the classroom option, but it was cancelled and they offered me discounted live online webinar. I think live online webinar option saves you lot of time and you can attend it while sitting on your desk or while resting in your home. I did not EET, so can not comment on that.

    CA Civil - Seismic and Surveying

    I am an earthquake engineer, but I found seismic problems difficult and insufficient amount of time. I had studies only two days for seismic using PPI book. Surveying was mostly mathematical calculations and I found it easy.

    Passed Civil-Structural...1st time..yeay I think I might just crossed over the cut off line. I did all the morning questions, but couldn't do all afternoon structural depth questions, especially related to codes and stuff. I also had my PhD defense on March 27, so it was really busy time for me. I think my graduate studies gave me edge in solving theoretical questions, but I had zero knowledge of codes related questions. I took SchoolOfPE online review course, which I think was really good, and it helped me get acquainted with problems that I had never seen before as part of my graduate studies. Apart from the hours I put in for SchoolOfPE (around 70 hrs), I would've done 50-60 hrs at max. I did not do any highlighting or tabbing in the books I possessed (SPE notes, CERM and codes). I used index of books extensively, and it might have helped me get alteast 3-4 problems correct. These were the problems I had no clue about! I am waiting for seismic and surveying..fingers crossed.
