    EET-SE Review

    I found the EET review course notes very comprehensive and I didn't need any other review books (the course also doesn't require you to buy any books). I already had the SERM, but I only used it for the concrete design aid charts. If you have another source for these, then I don't think you need the SERM at all. I did grab a copy of both of the published practice exams (NCEES and Schuster) and found these very useful.

    EET-SE Review

    I wanted to add to the recommendations for the EET course! It was by far the best learning experience I've had. I took the School of PE courses for both vertical and lateral for my first attempt at the exam in April 2017. I thought the courses were decent. Along with supplemental studying, the SoPE courses got me to the "borderline" point and I failed vertical (barely - 27/40, A, A, A, U) passed lateral (likely also barely). I then took the EET vertical course for my second attempt at the exam. The EET course was far, far superior! I thought the course prepared me incredibly well, and I felt confident both going into and coming out of the exam. (Of course that confidence wore off after 2 months of waiting for results and I was suddenly very worried about results, but I think that's how it goes for most people.) I was able to pass the vertical exam this past April (2018) despite the 18% pass rate for repeat takers. I think the biggest item that sets the EET course apart is the amount of quality practice problems you receive - especially since there aren't a ton of practice exams out there. EET provides hundreds of HW problems, several mini-exams, and a full length practice exam. I supplemented the EET course only with additional long answer problems from the two available practice exams. I thought the EET course was very intense and time consuming. I was able to keep up with the vertical course, but I am curious if anyone else has had success trying to keep up with both the vertical and lateral courses at the same time. If so, what was your approach/did you start early with on-demand?

    April 2018 SE Exam Results

    It looks like the MA PE results were out 6 days after the results were released to the states... I’m really hoping the SE results aren’t on the same timeline. 😨 Has anyone tried calling PCS or the board?

    April 2018 SE Exam Results

    Oh my...these are definitely discouraging for those of us still waiting for results. I don’t think I want to keep checking anymore.

    April 2018 SE Exam Results

    It’s release day #2 for all of us who had to wait through the weekend...let’s hope for (favorable) results today! I think we have at least MN, MA, and NV waiting still. Who else?

    April 2018 SE Exam Results

    Okay - I broke down and asked with no luck. Anyone who's been having better luck want to give it a try?

    Which SE course have you taken? Did you pass?

    Massachusetts - Passed lateral Failed vertical: 27/40, acceptable, acceptable, acceptable, unacceptable I definitely felt better about the lateral exam coming out, so the results line up. I think the vertical score could've been boarderline passing without the unacceptable in the afternoon. Hopefully a second go-around will do the trick!

    Results out this week

    Where does NCEES normally post passing percentages? Do they just update the following page or are they posted elsewhere? http://ncees.org/engineering/se/
