    How is the font size of the exam

    If I remember correctly the font size is the exact same as the NCEES Practice Exam. Yes, bring a backup calculator. You can keep it on the exam table or in the case/tote you carry your books in.

    PPI Learning Hub

    I have almost convinced myself to give the PE another go. If I decide to commit I believe the only thing I can change in my study habits from previous attempts is to focus on working as many problems as possible. I have a tendency of going down rabbit holes when it comes to video tutorials and classes. Once I start watching videos I can't stop, won't stop!!!! I was wondering if anyone has used the Learning Hub that PPI offers. It's $149/month. I'm wondering if it's worth it? What is the difficulty level of the questions? Are thorough solutions given?

    Any Update on the Results???????????

    It's crazy how kids turn your world upside down. It sounds like having you PE would be really beneficial for you as well. I really don't want to give up because you are right. It's still fresh in our minds. Good luck on the next go round.

    Any Update on the Results???????????

    Yeah it sounds like it would be really beneficial for you. I know for myself if I needed to find another job having my PE would definitely help. Thiswas a goal I set for myself when I was in college. I'm kind of stubborn and when I set my mind to something I can't just give up. I might just need to set my mind on something else The hardest part for me was bedtime. I love putting my daughter to bed. She's all cuddly and says "I love you lots mommy" like a billion times and we'll just talk about life for 10 minutes or so. You know the important stuff like our favorite color sucker or what ball we're going to kick outside tomorrow. When I was studying she would come into the room and say "night night mommy" then tuck her head down and walk out. Of course I would immediately get up and go get her. And don't even get me started on the weekends

    Oct 2018 Failing Scores

    That's awesome! Congrats! Do you mind stating how many you got correct? I got a 43/80 and so far I haven't seen any higher than 48/80. Or if you could post in the Electrical Power Exam Sub Forum. There is a thread for 'Any Update on the Results???????????' I'm sure everyone would benefit from what you feel comfortable adding. This was go number 3 for me and even though I did significantly better this time I don't know if I have it in me for another go at it. I have a 3 yr old at home that I've missed a lot of time with.

    Any Update on the Results???????????

    I'm in the same boat. My husband has a pretty demanding job but he stepped up and took over for me while I was locked away studying. I missed so many activities/experiences with my kiddo, I'm just not sure I can dedicate the time for a another go at this test. She's only 3 and I don't want to miss out on any more. My job doesn't require us to get our PE. In fact some of our best engineers don't have their PE and say they are not going to get their PE. For me it was just a goal of my own. I have to decide if it's worth it.

    Any Update on the Results???????????

    I failed with a 43/80 as well. My 2 worst topics were a 25% in Electric Power Devices and 39% in Protection. I took Zach's class as well. I know it definitely helped. Maybe I didn't work enough problems I don't know.
