    Good Luck

    Ugh, qualitative questions are harder for me. Curious, would you have been able to answer all the questions using only the Environmental PE Handbook as your reference?

    Good Luck

    *Hugs* I honestly felt the same way, so you never know! 🙏🏼

    Good Luck

    I sat for the Enviro test 4 times😳, April and October 2015 and April and October 2017. With the 2017 exams, I felt really good after April and defeated after October’s exam. I’m not sure how I even drove home that night. But, I passed the October exam. So, I’m sure you did better then you think!! Sending good vibes to you both😊🤞🏼

    October 2018 Exam Study Progress

    I have Davis&Cornwell (4th Edition), but Tables 9-6 and 9-7 are on pages 768 and 769 of this edition. Is this what you need? DavisCornwell4thedition_Table9-6and9-7.pdf

    4th Attempt Going to Board

    I'm sure it's the number he got correct out of 80, not percentage. It shows his persistence, and with every exam he takes, he does show improvement. Good luck @Cartman86... you've got this!!

    For the October 2017 exam, I received the letter 2.5 weeks after notification of pass result. Yeah, I couldn't wait to write that $140 check either! Congrats!!

    This is from a post from @ruggercsc on this forum and may help (Credit to @NYCProjectEngineer PE PMP for his write up below): Here is a list of action verbs you can use in your record to get you started: • Designed • Analyzed • Specified • Programmed • Planned • Evaluated • Problem Solved • Produced • Created • Implemented Some other design examples, notice how specific the examples are: • Performed troubleshooting on air handling unit during commissioning. • Calculated construction loads for scaffolding to be used for concrete placement. • Calculated the loading on new concrete foundations to verify it was acceptable to backfill and place construction equipment on top of the foundations. • Specified foundation detail requirements • Designed storm water drainage plans • Designed formwork for concrete. • Calculated equipment fleet productivity rates and scheduled project to optimize equipment and manpower resources. • Designed temporary excavations support systems. • Designed construction haul roads. • Design of rigging systems. • Design of crane safety and operation plans. • Design of storage and lay-down facilities. • Design and inspection of site drainage and sedimentation controls. Other engineering duties can include: • Inspection of construction to verify conformance with design documents. • Perform value engineering analyses • Perform constructability reviews; provide design input based on reviews to the engineer of record. • Perform materials testing (concrete, steel, soils) and generate reports of results for use during construction (i.e., took soil samples and performed standard proctor). • Design and optimization of construction project schedule • Review shop drawings and submittals • Review and answer Requests for Information (RFIs) • Generate engineering cost estimates • Perform engineering economic analyses of construction plant and generate findings (i.e., buy or lease analysis, amortization schedule, maintenance costs over life of equipment, etc). • Performed safety inspections to verify compliance with OSHA requirements. • Generated (or reviewed) safety plans to ensure engineering controls were properly implemented (i.e., shoring for excavation, steel erection plans, critical lift plans, rigging, noise/light control plans, etc). The key is to say what YOU did on the project. Do not say you “managed” other people doing the work; you have to have actually done the work to get credit for it. You need to properly and completely explain your design experience which, depending on your state, is required in conjunction with your general engineering experience.

    @kmill23 CONGRATS!! I graduated with a Chemical Engineering degree 15+ years ago and my experience has only been as a state regulator in the NPDES program, so I struggled in the air and solid waste portion of the exam. I'm so relieved to have finally passed that exam😅

    Oct 2017 Cut Score?

    @Maryam I'm sorry, but don't give up! I took the exam several times too, so I know how you feel. I'd definitely take a review course or two within the 1 year time frame. Good luck and let me know if I can help in any way.
