  1. I work for a large state agency so the raise is automatic. Range C to range D. After a few step raises it will end up being a 10k/ year. raise. Biggest perk is the ability to move into management. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I studied all the time and ignored my 16yr old. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I fully agree with this. I was not able to execute this strategy my first time taking the surveying exam, and left feeling like it was a complete shit show. The second time I took it, I executed this strategy MUCH more effectively, and felt so much better leaving the exam. I passed the second time! I do not think it would result in wasting more time overall. For myself, if I get stuck on a problem halfway through the exam and it eats up 10 or 15 minutes without me solving it, well, that could screw me for the rest of the exam. It also helps to buoy your confidence if you go through all of the problems straight off the bat and solve all the easy ones first. I do not recommend the 120 solved problems book from PPI. I didn't think they were that similar to the exam itself. I highly recommend the Reza Mahallati book if you can get your hands on it. That was gold for me my second time taking the surveying exam. Spot on leggo. Skip PPI and stick with Mahallati. His practice questions were the closest to the exam difficulty . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good to know.. I sent mine in Friday morning, so hopefully I have a response by Tuesday. After waiting forever to pass all of the exams required, I think i can hang on another month to get the #.
  6. I'm a scheduler too. I would recommend EET. I work in construction, for a state agency, but shied away from construction depth and erred in the side of caution with transportation. I know that some of the topics on the EET construction depth are taught by Samir and he is very knowledgeable in safety and the planning side. The EET website has a contact number if you want to talk to them and get a feel for their class. Good luck!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. for depth and breadth it runs from Late July to end of September. If you are on the fence at all email them or call the contact number. They will get back to you.
  8. Don't give up. Not passing bites, but you'll get there. this was my third time taking it and thankfully I passed. I took EET each time. Overall I prefer the live webinar. I procrastinate and it keeps you on schedule. The schedule is posted on their website. http://www.eetusa.com/classes/civil-pe/breadth class goes from 730 or 8 am - 4 or 5 pm (all PST) On Demand good - fits into your schedule. - you don't have to get up crack ass early on Saturdays. or have a time issue if you are on the East Coast - you can walk away and finish later if real life interrupts. Live - you can ask questions in real time - if you don't understand something you can ask right then and there when it's fresh in your mind - it keeps you on schedule and you will not fall behind.
  9. I passed the EIT in 1991. I lived in upper Northern California where the test and any exam prep courses were 2 hrs away and was married to someone who was not supportive. So it took me a long while to get my act together. Moral of the story it's never too late and don't marry a jerk. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. What?????? That's new(?) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I agree. Never having to wait for a bathroom was great. However, I went to a conference last year where the organizers converted the large women's bathroom into a men's room and forced us to use the "family" stalls. Well that's bullshit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Say what now? No one ever gave me extra points for having boobs. The only benefit to being a female in engineering school was never having to wait in line for the bathroom Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
