  1. Waiting

    I would say mid-December as well. How does everyone feel about their performance on the exam? I took Lateral Buildings this go-around (Passed vertical 2017 April). I thought it was tough, but fair. I definitely thought it was harder than both the PPI and NCEES practice exams. Also, timing was a killer for me on the morning portion. I ended up blindly filling in about 6 questions (all AASHTO), which is very discouraging to me at the moment. I am somewhat confident with my performance on the afternoon problems. I guess we'll see in December.
  2. I will be taking the Buildings Lateral Forces Component on Saturday. I took the Vertical component in April (passed) and the PE Structural last October (passed). I'll be working the NCEES Practice Exam this weekend (timed). 4 hour morning portion Saturday and 4 hour afternoon portion Sunday. Breaking it up allows me time to check my work and learn what I missed without exhausting myself in one day. Then I plan to cram as much problems in Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I already worked problems from the IBC SEAOC Seismic Manual Vol 1, ASCE Wind Design Example Problems, Bridge Problems for the SE Exam, All-In-One SE Exam Guide, PPI Practice Exam & Seismic and Wind Forces Structural Design Examples. I plan to work 6-Minute Solutions and Kaplan Brightwood SE Exam Problems those three days. Friday will be a down day for relaxing. I will not study or look at anything.
  3. Thank you for the response. I caved and bought the 2015 Edition. I don't think there is much difference between the two prints. Thanks again!
  4. Hey guys, Does anybody out there have a physical copy of the 2012 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual Volume 1: Code Application Examples they'd be willing to sell? It appears that edition is out of printing and I can't seem to find a hard copy of it anywhere online. Since California is on the 2015 IBC it looks like they're phasing out any design manual referencing the 2012 IBC. I would prefer to keep in line with 2012 IBC in my studies for the 2017 October SE Lateral Buildings exam since that's the code the exam will be referencing. Shoot me a PM if you can help out.

    PA results out. Took gravity and passed!!!! Wahoo! See you in October, lateral.
  6. Results out this week

    Oh, I never heard that the passing scores were posted prior to the results release. Interesting...
  7. Results out this week

    Today the day? I'm feeling lucky!
  8. Results out this week

    Yup, I 2nd that. Came to the same conclusion. I'm really hoping for this Friday.
  9. April 2017 PE Results Are Out

    Thanks fellas, appreciate the input.
  10. April 2017 PE Results Are Out

    Gentleman, April 2017 PE results are out. How much longer would we say for SE results to be released? Does anyone have any historical data to make a determination based on trend? I understand a lot of you are banking on mid-June. Also, I have seen that results are usually released around a week or so after the SE scoring workshop, but I have not seen the June Licensure Exchange published yet (see below for link) so that date is unknown at this point. http://ncees.org/category/news/lex/
  11. Good luck, everyone!

    Likewise. Had about 4 or 5 AM Vertical questions where I had to rework them with slightly tweaked design parameters and still wasn't getting exact answers. I probably wasted a fair amount of time on these. Definitely was getting something close, but not in the realm of what NCEES considers "close to..". I'm not even talking about bridge (AASHTO) questions (Buildings guy here).
  12. Good luck, everyone!

    Oh wow, thanks for the input. That makes me feel better. Hopefully you're feeling a little more confident about this year's lateral component. I'll being tackling that this October.
  13. Good luck, everyone!

    Congrats on passing vertical. Buildings or bridges? Just out of curiosity, how did you feel about your performance on vertical after walking out of the exam? I just sat for vertical buildings and feel semi-confident. Tripped up on a few things in the afternoon, but nothing too major. I was able to complete mostly everything in the allotted amount of time.
  14. When Are License Numbers Available?

    PA guy here. I'm already seeing my number on the lookup site. Pretty shocked.
  15. Pennsylvania Results Released.....

    Passed it!
