    2011 NCEES practice exam (mechanical systems)

    Hello everyone, if you're looking for the older version of the NCEES MDM exam, it's available on Amazon and it was actually published in 2010, not 2011. Paperback: 88 pages Publisher: Ncees (November 1, 2010) Language: English ISBN-10: 1932613609 ISBN-13: 978-1932613605 https://www.amazon.com/PE-Mechanical-Engineering-Materials-Practice/dp/1932613609/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=isbn+978-1-932613-60-5&qid=1550610859&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull If you can't find it on Amazon, there are other sources on line where you can get it, just make sure you reference ISBN: 978-1932613605. Good luck with studying !
  2. That's the correct one (https://www.amazon.com/Mechanical-Exam-Review-Materials-Engineering/dp/1545055890/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=dr+timothy+kennedy&qid=1550596449&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull) . It is not a collection of practice problems like the 6-min. solution, BUT, for each section it covers they do provide additional samples which you CAN use as practice problems. That's how I used the book, once I reviewed all the material in MERM, I tried to solve the problems in Dr. Kennedy's book without looking at the answers. Good luck with studying !

    PE Certificate Frame w/Pencil

    Thanks! I just watched the sales on line (https://www.michaels.com/custom-framing ) and waited for the next best deal. They have one every month it seems, right now you can get 40% by following the link above but you have to order on-line. I'd wait until they have an in-store coupon deal so you can go in person and talk to an associate. I ended up paying around $170 when it was all said and done. Good luck!

    PE Certificate Frame w/Pencil

    Thanks! Yes I brought my certificate and pencil to Michael's (because Aaron Brothers no longer has physical stores, at least not in my area) and the lady I spoke with did all the layout in front of me. Great service. The turn-around time was under 2 weeks and well worth the wait. Congrats on passing the exam and now treat yourself to a nice frame!
  5. Hello my fellow Californian, read your post and thought you might benefit from my past experiences. Here you will see what resources I used for the Mechanical MDM PE exam as well as a recommended study plan. Good luck my friend, and feel free to ping me with questions if you get stuck.
  6. I wonder if people will be able to purchase the PDF handbooks in advance so they can become familiar with them.
  7. Looks like NCEES has made it official and the last time anyone will be able to take the paper-and-pencil Mechanical PE Exam (any discipline) will be October '19: https://ncees.org/exams/cbt/ The conversion schedule is below, what do you guys think about this?
  8. You're very welcome and yes, I hope to continue to help others pass the test and avoid repeating my story!
  9. Hey @JFrost...you're very welcome and glad you're finding my experiences useful. You can find some of Dr. Tom's videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mLfmjcovlc&list=PLNY488wl-RoDeoLt_jU35Os8tjuVLiWwH But it appears that some of the MDM related videos have been taken down. I did purchase the course through his website and it was well worth the money. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about the exam or specific problems when you begin to study. Being that you're taking the exam in April, I recommend to hit the books now if you haven't already. Good luck with studying !

    CA License Watch Oct. 2018

    Hello there... if you already submitted your notice of successful examintion, BPELSG updates the new license numbers toward the end of the month so I'd keep checking over the next 2 weeks. I was in the same position as you and it only took them 2 weeks or so to publish my license number. Congratulations on passing the exam !
