I started studying early September and logged my hours for a total of 116 hours - you can get a taste of what my September and October were like above. I felt more than prepared by the end of it. I bought every book NCEES recommended including the CERM. I also printed the FE reference handbook. I went through TestMasters for an online class. I cannot stress how much this helped. It gave me direction to my studying (study smart not hard). I also bought the NCEES practice exam and borrowed a friend's older edition from 2008 (rough guess on the year). I understand this is a lot of money to drop ~$2800. My company picked up the tab -- after I already purchased everything (as in, I would have paid this out of my own pocket regardless if they were or were not picking up the tab). I tabbed A LOT of my TestMasters books, some of the FE Reference and barely any of the CERM. You should be so familiar with your references that by the time you are done tabbing you think you just wasted a lot of time - but it can ease your mind if you have a brain fart come test day. Focus on working actual problems instead of just reading the CERM! This is where TestMasters came in handy. I recommend the TI-36X Pro solar calculator for the same reasons everyone else has mentioned. It has the familiarity of the TI-89 which is what I was most familiar with in college. I personally thought the AM was tougher than the PM. I was kind of questioning how the PM was going to be going into the test because I saw the Construction depth pass rate has been historically lower than other disciplines. I have since chalked up the pass rate being lower in Construction due to the type of engineer taking this depth, since typically there is lack of hardcore "engineering" per say...you just don't "engineer" a whole lot, so like anything else if you don't use it you lose it! I personally worked for a few different General Contractors and in no way is that a blanket statement just my own opinion.
