  1. To help budget your time, you should try to treat it as if it was the live webinar class in terms of scheduling. That way you have a set schedule to follow which should help you keep on track
  2. Check the rules, most states have a waiver of PDH's the first license cycle, or it could be scaled based on when you get it. License expiring in 5 months could be accurate based on the states licensing date. In NJ all PE licenses end on the same date. So when i got my license, i got my initial in January and then had to renew in April. This is probably easier enforcement wise to do it all at once as opposed to having it at random times throughout the year.
  3. Did you self study or did you sign up for a review class? When I got my PE, i used EET for the construction depth and had references from friends for morning topics. The EET binder was very organized and was my main go-to during the exam. In terms of review courses EET is a fraction of the cost of other courses, but from posts on this site seems to be the most recommended/liked review course.
  4. The day the to do list ends, is the day we have to be worried.
  5. Yivo, you should really look at the requirements of that product. Unless you are licensed in the state that the project takes place your license means nothing and you can not legally sign off on the plans. State laws will always over rule any requirements a client places on a job. The reprocity process is also not an instant process. By time you were to get approved, it may be too late for the project in mind.
  6. Actually, you may not need the Steel Manual at all if you can find the subject material of those few sections elsewhere. For the AMac section, and afternoon Construction Section, there are no Steel design questions on the exam. I actually brought my copy from early 2000's, and I don't think I ever even thought about using it during the exam.
  7. Do you have all of the other code references shown for the exam? Since they removed the PCI reference, one of the other references may have a section that covers this topic now.
  8. You still have a good shot. I played in 12 team league, had a 12-1 record and averaged around 125 a week. Had a Week 1 bye last week and totally bombed this week only getting 59 points after being projected to get 121 points. Our number 2 seed also got eliminated last night after scoring 63 out of a projected 106 points.
  9. This is so annoying...I'm 6'6" so my seat is all the way back. Do you really have to push my seat all the way up for the extremely short time it takes to pull my car in the shop and then back out.
  10. You should review the requirements for your state and make sure your description describes what you have done while satisfying the boards requirements. Did you do any internship work that you can count? I don't know ow where you are from, but in NJ you need at least 2 years of design experience in order to qualify for the exam.
  11. I'm killing it in Fantasy football this year, but I'm upset I started Graham over Ebron this week.
