    Question 113 on the NCEES PRactice exam. RTC: Minimum Dissolved Oxygen Concentration Calculation: I understand that the formula for Minimum Dissolved Oxygen Concentration is DOsat-Dmax. Can you not use the full Streeter Phelps DO sag equation (below) to solve D max using t=3, since t is the time required to achieve max dissolved oxygen deficit. Am I missing something?

    Whats everyone's thoughts on Environmental Engineering Practice PE Exams by Wane Schneiter? I have a love/hate relationship with it.

    Wow, I am now wondering if I should bring those (non-text book) resources like guidance documents, and ASTM standards (Phase 1) etc. There comes a point where I need be confident with what I have, but I feel like once I hear about a book or resource, I feel like I need to have it.

    I am knee deep in trash for my job. No water, no air, no public health experience. I can knock the 6 or so solid waste questions out the park though. At least I am guaranteed 6/80 lol.

    I was told that SchoolofPE has great practice problems. Can anyone recommend them? If I take this leap, are they good questions that will prepare me enough for the exam?

    I still come across questions that i'm like "huh?" when I read them. I have a notion that the people who will be successful are consistently answering every question they find and attempt? Struggle topics: Applied Ideal Gas Law, Sludge Management, Water Resources

    Thank you @kmill23. I noticed you said that the questions we easier than the practice exams. I am banking on that. I know the material, but I get tripped up on the practice exam questions, as I think they are pretty difficult and very tricky.

    What practice questions/books is everyone using? I have the NCEES Practice Exam. Everyone always says work as many problems as possible. That being said, can anyone recommend any other good question resources?

    @PEforWinI heard the same thing. I use the lindenburg as the back up to the texts you listed. The only other text that I have that you did not list is the Metcalf and Eddy. Does anyone know which practice question resources (PPI, NCEES practice) most closely resembles the actual test in terms of question structure and difficulty? <<<I can ask that question right? (if not....disregard, not trying to get in trouble)

    My main worry is time. If I had 16 hours to take the test I would be ok. Sometimes, I find myself struggling for 15 minutes on one question which I solve eventually. On the real exam, I don't have this amount of time. Sigh.
