    Celebrating and Venting About Results

    I passed this third time in Civil WRE. The exam didn't seem harder or easier, but I just did so many practice problems that I knew which problems I usually miss due to misunderstanding the question. When I was working practice problems I noticed that I kept missing about 40% of the problems and most of them was the easiest straight forward ones. They were actually not tricky problems, but its just that sometimes we get too excited and quickly solve them the same usual way. Its the same equation but they're just asking us to solve the other variable instead or divide by 2 instead of multiply by 2. I made sure to follow the NCEES syllabus and organize all my AM material in the same order. The afternoon session I don't think I had much control over, because there were many over the head questions in addition to the same gimmee problems. I did ok on my second attempt, but I noticed that I missed about 8 of the last ten depth questions. This exam session I just paused and went to the wash my face and just moved around a little to loosen the tension. I think I correctly answered at least 7 of the last ten problems at the end instead. The exam expects us to sit down for 4 hours straight for two sessions in a day and its really stressful. I don't think I know more exam material, but I think I just got used to seeing all the little tricks they do to reword problems slightly different from the practice problems that everyone has in their reference binders. I self studied all three times and it just seems that I just had to polish up my test taking skills by practicing more problems on my own and not look up the solutions right away. EB has been a great support website to help with my anxiety as well as provide valuable information to get me prepared for this formidable exam. Thanks everyone for all the support and encouragement. Congrats to all who passed and I wish everyone who didn't pass will pass in October. Do not shy away from using the resources here.
