  1. I agree with all of the above, although I would not recommend the Georgia Tech class. I found it mostly useless except for the NEC section, I regretted wasting time with it for sure. I would highly recommend Zach's Electrical PE Review (www.electricalpereview.com). The whole course is built off of the NCEES PE exam syllabus with each section containing a 5-15 min video working and explaining a problem. It also includes an awesome live class that's interactive and not some guy reading off slides for 3 hours. I will say however that his code section is a bit weak, and doesn't really get you where you need to be as far as sizing equipment, and doing voltage drops. Tom Henry's index was totally clutch too. I feel like I got the answers to all but one question with this index. I would recommend the FE handbook too, it has tables that I found very useful--probably because it is from NCEES. In my opinion there were problems on this exam that no amount of practice exams would've prepared you for, not even the NCEES practice exam. The theory and practice provided in the course gave me confidence during and after the exam.
  2. Check the errata on ppi's site. It's updated for 120deg. This integral can be quickly done with TI 36x pro or equiv.
  3. a comprehensive protection book on the subject is "Protective Relaying: Principles and Applications" by Blackburn. It's quite dense though. To answer your last couple of questions: delta windings trap zero sequence current as there is no path to ground, they do not pass through the transformer to the secondary. A neutral grounding resistor in a wye system is used to limit fault energy in the form of I^2t, thereby reducing the time fault current can damage the equipment.
  4. I was curious about how you felt about the review course. Did help you pass? Was it worth it?
  5. Hi all, Just FYI--NCEES has updated the PE POWER Exam Specifications to include the 2017 NEC https://ncees.org/wp-content/uploads/Power-April-2018.pdf
