    i don't have specifics but there was one problem in the April 18' exam that was pretty much just a series of unit conversions. I also used it on many other problems. For 20 bucks or whatever it costs, i think it's well worth it.

    Hopefully it works out in your favor. Makes you wonder how many of us that received passing results actually failed but were passed because of an error. hmm..

    I took MDM this past April and passed. My most useful references during studying were.... 1. MERM 2. EngProGuides study book 3. Shigleys 4. Tim Kennedy review book 5. DTC youtube videos 6. Lindberg unit conversion book 7. NCEES practice exam 8. EngProGuides practice exam 9. Scott Hart and Kevin Klein practice exam 10. Machinery handbook My most useful references during the exam were.... 1. MERM 2. Machinery Handbook 3. Lindbergh unit conversion book 4. EngProGuides study book I didn't use all of my resources during the exam. The most useful was the MERM. I had it tabbed and highlighted well. Definitely get the unit conversion book. There may be some problems that are pretty much just unit conversions. Come up with a study plan. Work according to the plan and re-evaluate every month or so to make sure you are on track. Try not to get burnt out. Keep a steady pace. Get all the practice exams that you can find. Something that i wish i did was to take a practice exam in a public place... library, school whatever. I did all my studying in my quiet distraction free office. I am generally an anxious person and the exam room setting and crowds of people was distracting for me. I was studying in my quiet little hole for too long lol.

    MA April 2018 PE Results

    Jeez you guys are still waiting?!?! sry :/

    I don't expect anything. A PE license isn't required or common for the field I am in (machine design). I took the PE as a personal challenge and to potentially open up future opportunities. Bossman might throw a little cash at me though.

    Adding Credentials

    In Illinois you must have 4 years experience working under a licensed PE. The PE will fill out a VE-PNG form and sign and seal it in an envelope then return it to the applicant to include with his/her application. I just had this conversation with my boss who will help me with my VE-PNG form. He also told me about the required PDH's for renewing licenses.. which i had no idea about.

    Upset with my ex-boss after I passed my PE

    That is very unfortunate. I hope there might be another way to communicate the importance of having her recommendation. Don't let it get you down. Easy or hard, passing this exam is still an accomplishment and you should feel proud. I know I do. This is not what I wanted to read as I am about to go talk to my boss for his recommendation lol.
