  1. They will release it on a Thursday. It will be this coming Thursday or yet again....xD Its the 6th week this coming Thursday...Brace yourselves! xD
  2. At phase 4 it's missing something. --->You doubt if you shaded your answer corresponding to the correct question #. xD So did you guys ensure that you shaded the bubbles that corresponds to the right problem #? xD
  3. You'd be surprised, a lot of Design Engineers(non-PE) makes as low as $50k and on average $55-60k here in NYC. And some PE's as low as $75k-90k. In my opinion, no PE should take that salary here in NYC. It's an insult. An average steel worker makes more than that. smh
  4. I can't believe my eyes, we still have salary that are not 6 figures, its 2019!
  5. Hmmmm..I don't think so..You really don't need those huge diagrams. What I would suggest is that, during the course of your study, try using the reference material with your desktop! That sucks but it will greatly help you prep for the CBT.
  6. How is PM session this October? Because back in April test the PM session was a breeze for me it was like 2 times lot easier than the AM. And the AM session in April exam was fair, it was not that hard. And btw, you should expect ofcourse lots of pump problems, around 30-40%. The following weeks will be your roller coaster. Best of luck!
  7. Tomorrow is your big day. Today, go walk in the park for some fresh air, run 10 miles and give your calculators a break. Go eat your favorite meal, relax, drink a glass of wine, sleep early and pray. Good luck everyone!
  8. Roughly 3 weeks before the big day. I still remember how I am feeling at during this time. hmmmmmm, please practice your speed! By now, you guys should be finishing the whole 6MS book, NCEES practice book, SlayThePE problem book in 4 hours or less. Once your able to do this, you should be sure passing this test. Also I advice you guys to look back at the previous problems in this thread. Thanks to @Slay the P.E.!
  9. Congrats! But damn! That wait is like when I started to study for the April exam until I get my license here in NY. Was like 5 months or so....
  10. I got the answer, but not joining..I just wonder if someone participated other than Mike ? @Slay the P.E. How many did actually sent PM's now for this? This is so kind of you @Slay the P.E. the discount though, its just, you did not offer this last April! haha!
  11. @Monir just a heads up, I don't think they would be asking questions like this. You gonna have to sweat a little bit with the real exam problems.
  12. Think its time for the weekly problems 😁
  13. It all depends on your style. In my case, I just go straight answer the problems. If I don't know how to solve it after reading 1st time I skip it and return to it if I still have time. And if I do know how to solve it, even though I know its like level 3 or higher problem, I will still go and solve it and move on. Based on my experience from taking more than 30 licensure and certifications combined, if you go through the problems and grade them, it tends to throw in a lot of information in your brain at a very short period of time and that can mess up your brain in a sense. I've heard from some who are repeat takers that, on the first look they know how to answer the problem, but when they get back to it to answer it, they couldn't understand why they can't get the answer to come out, something is missing. This is exactly what I'm talking about. Then they got upset about it and end up spending a lot of time solving one simple problem. They end up failing the test because the 6 minute per problem got stretched to 15 minutes on some of the problems and still can't figure out the answer. So my advice is for you to answer the problem in order. Skip what ever problem you can't answer and come back to it if you still have time left because once you saw a problem that you don't know, 90% of the time, you won't be able to answer them.
  14. I see its just a little lower than the previous passing rate.
