    October 2018 Exam Authorizations

    Some say @NY-Computer-Engineer still sees the green "Pass" mark every night in his sleep. Wait a minute..no not him..right.. that's me. The green mark titillates me

    Taking backpack into exam

    I took my bagpack to the exam with no problem.
  3. Both 1 & 2 are correct. A problem may have data in US customary units and they may ask you to answer in SI.

    Appreciate the response. I'm amused but unfortunately no closer to finding a good answer.

    PE California Application - Trancripts

    Hi, I went through the same situation a year ago. I have non-ABET undergrad and ABET grad degree in engineering. CA board requires both (undergrad and grad) transcripts as a part of the application process.

    California PE Lic. Numbers??

    Sweet. I haven't got the wall cert yet. Did it come together with the pocket id?
  8. Dear Drew I am a working father such as yourself. It was hard to find time to study but that's where my great wife came to my rescue. After reaching home from work she took care of our kid and let me study for 2-3 hours on weekdays. On weekends I studied about 6-7 hours. This went on for 4.5 months. Good news for me and more importantly for my wife was that I passed in my first try (April 2018) Know that it's definitely probable to pass PE while working and fathering. You've got to have your partner's support; so lean on your wife for a few months to buy study time. Don't feel too much guilty in asking for her help because she's also a stakeholder when you actually become a PE. Study material-wise I used school of PE for review. Was well versed with references I took to the exam. Solved a lot of problems from PPI, School of PE and NCEES practice exam. Took timed practice exams which was difficult as I couldn't find 8 straight hours of free time. So I separated AM and PM sections and completed each in 4 hours.

    New York Picture ID

    Apparently California board started issuing plastic cards in 2016. http://www.bpelsg.ca.gov/pubs/bulletin48.pdf See page 4 Haven't read/heard anything about cards for 2018 licensees.

    No I haven't stamped anything. I work at a power plant where we're not required to stamp anything for years.. and years... and years....

    California PE Lic. Numbers??

    Not yet. The temporary email certificate said it will take 6-8 weeks from then for us to receive the wall certificate. I don't think it will take that long as they always tend to give you the worst case scenario dates.

    Which Pencil to use...

    Here's another conundrum. Do you want to frame the pencil with the lead sticking out (symbolizing you're ready to take on anything life throws at you)? or tucked all the way in (as if the pencil/you've done your thing and conquered the world)?

    California PE Lic. Numbers??

    Thanks for the info. I'd love to have name and branch straight as shown in the pic you attached (not curved). Stamp vendors have curved name and branch in the template. Does anyone know of somebody that makes stamps as shown in the pic above? Also I do not want the word "registered" on there.
