    Goto and look for the: Should be pretty easy to spot. Good Luck. Hope you Pass. 🤞
  4. tru2YM, That is a great idea. At this point, the last month is the time to tie off loose ends. Before I passed (2nd attempt), I was closer to 1 and 3. I remember taking my time on the last month to re-study on areas I was weak in and refresh the exam as a whole. I find it best to practice sample exams several times (at this point) to get in the rhythm of things. Good luck to you. I hope you knock it out of the park.
  5. I second that; Thank you!
  6. I think its very important. I agree with Surf and Snow, many employers only accept ABET accredited Engineers. I know the company I work for (Shipyard) and several surrounding companies flat out say "Must be ABET Accredited." Plus, ABET accredited allows you to sit for the P.E. IMO, its Accredited or not at all.
  7. According to PE Sample Questions and Solutions: Electrical and Computer Engineering (ISBN: 9781932613117), "NCEES does not use a fixed-percentage pass rate such 70% or 75% because licensure is designed to ensure that practitioners possess enough knowledge to perform professional activities in a manner that protects the public welfare." With that being said, IMO I think the cut score is approximately 70% on average. This is based on observing past failing scores hovering around 55/80 (68.75%).
  8. Those are very good pointers. I've failed the test the first time as well (pass the second). The trick is to never give up.
  9. A common question asked: "What Prep Course worked best for you and why?"
  10. Some Engineers reported using a hand full of training videos from to aid in passing the FE. It might be too in-depth on most subjects, however some training videos target the same core concepts (Norton, Thevenin, Truth Tables, etc.). Based on the feedback, the overall goal was to sit for both FE and PE back-to-back.
  11. WOW. "If we want to pass PE,everyone in this company can pass PE!" Holy bat shit, batman. I heard some arrogance in my day, but this is some serious bovine fecal matter. If P.Es are so easy, why doesn't ever Engineer have one? SuperKK, don't even give this person a second thought. That statement is one of the dumbest things a person can say in the Engineering World.
