    Exam Day Strategy

    California didn't do that either, in fact, I brought plenty of hand written notes, worked out problems, etc. in engineering paper, all in 3-ring binders and they were ok with it.

    Machine Design & Materials Oct 2018

    At the end of the course there is a refresher quizz for the earlier weeks...I recommend that in addition to that, you keep doing problems from the earlier chapters to keep things fresh as you said... good luck studying !

    Mistake on TFS Sample Test?

    As you continue to go through all the refresher material that's out there for your discipline (mine was MDM) , you will find that unfortunately, there are plenty of mistakes and erratas out there...frustrating when you're trying to prepare for such a hard exam. Even the NCEES practice exams have mistakes. Anyway, when you encounter another one post it here and maybe one of us can help you figure it out. Good luck with studying !

    Mistake on TFS Sample Test?

    I see what you mean....maybe the problem is poorly worded because I can't think of another way to get the answer they did.

    Mistake on TFS Sample Test?

    If you have MERM 13th edition, the equation they're using is on page 18-9, Table 18.5. It is the very first equation on the top left of the table, straight plug-and-chug: Q (in gpm) x h (in feet) x SG , all divided by 3956. The answer comes up to be 2.12 which corresponds to A.

    I'm sure they will... Aaron's Brothers is now located inside most Michael's and I'm sure they can replicate that. I brought a picture of exactly what I wanted so you can do the same .... You WILL get your certificate

    PE Certificate Frame w/Pencil

    @utilityeng....thank you so much for the idea, I just had my wall certificate framed and really liked the results. Michael's (Aaron's Brothers) did a great job and they gave me 65% off!

    For Those Who Didn't Pass

    Right there with you....4 attempts for me which I now call battle scars...well worth the sacrifice though...
  12. SacMe24

    I'm still celebrating

    I'm right there with you ...just knowing we don't have to study like this again is such a liberating feeling...
