  1. I would think where you pass each part of the SE exam wouldn't matter as 'how the exam is administered' is not state dependent. In other words same exam taken in GA would be same one taken in NC. I've definitely heard of folks taking PE exam in other states if they hit the max retake number. They just had to physically drive to exam site that's out of state. Have you taken a review course? I'm pretty sure that may count instead of dropping a few thousand and years on courses and if this is try #4 it may help you get over that last hump.
  2. as other have stated you put steel where tension strength is needed in concrete, since concrete is relatively week in tension.
  3. lol I'm sure your application package was opened same day check was cashed! Boards don't delay processing funds haha, but will delay the rest of the process
  4. Yup that's how it happened. If there is a barrier for 1st PE applicants, I would advise OP to get licensed in his home state then apply for comity to CA and take other two state specific exams. Will have to pay a record transfer fee, but will save on flight, hotel, gas, etc.
  5. For OSHA remember it's only a few sections out of the handbook. Don't print the whole couple hundred pages. I took about 40-50 pages to the exam and the index.
  6. You don't need to physically take PE exam in CA to be licensed in CA as PE. I live in NC and was just licensed. Never step foot in CA besides for vacation. And I took all three (PE, Seismic, and Survey) right here in good ol' NC for the civil engineering PE.
  7. You have to become a California PE before becoming an SE (I believe the 3 year exp requirement can be applied retroactively) so the seismic and surveying exams are required. As far as I know unless you can get an exemption for your PE license out of state, you must pass the PE exam before taking the seismic and surveying exam. Best bet is to email the board. Only they have the answer
  8. congrats! I second EET. I didn't use their review book but used their practice exams and they were great
  9. You were only about 4-6 multiple choice questions away. Your afternoon was good enough to pass. You're close keep pushing!
  10. 5 STEPS to Pass CA Seismic and Survey Exams | CA State Civil Exams PPI offers a reference manual and practice exam booklet that is pretty good. I recently used it and passed first go round
  11. Free study notes and design guides in video description
  12. x2. I've said this many times. We as structural engineers are not compensated at the level of liability and continuing examination associated with our profession compared to other professions.
  13. Oh I read it, it just was making points that I didn't bring up nor needed to be proven lol No comprende... I am already a licensed engineer. I am just commenting on the utter chaos the CA engineer board creates with their unorthodox application procedures compared to other states and the ever changing updates they make to their requirements. Side note: Talking SE states that I like...I'll take Illinois' application process anyday over other states...especially CA's!!
