1. ## The wait is killing me

I took on October and did the same as you said everyday. Finally day came and the result was out. Time will go on. All the best.
2. ## April 2018 PE Exam

Make sure you have good concept about variable speed drive and solve some problem on that topic
3. ## 2 Watt Meter Method

If the load is inductive with Ia lags Va by less than 30 degree, say there, then wattmeter W1 = Ia . Vac cos (30 - theta) And if Ia lags Va by more than 30 degree then W1 = Ia . Vac cos(theta - 30) You can do the same for capacitive load to get the equation. Hope this helps.

5. ## 2 Watt Meter Method

cos (-Ø) = cos (Ø) is one relationship that I can think of. Hope it helps.

7. ## CA PE License application

Board website says allow them 60 days before contacting them. For mine they received on December 21 2017; cashed check on around Jan 3 2018; got a email regarding docs sent for technical review on Feb 13 2018 and finally received email that application is approved on March 9 2018 but not yet updated on their website. Hopefully they will update my license no. by the end of this month. Hope this helps. I also send them email around beginning of March for any updates. Thanks
8. ## CA PE license after Oct 2017

3/8/18 status application approved.received an email. Waiting for lic # update and other documents and certificate. Hope this helps other regarding estimating the waiting time. Thanks
9. ## April 2018 PE Exam

NCEES practice book is a must for sure. The most important is to understand the problem and what is asked for. Prepare a notes for yourself to look for in exam. Theodore wildi electrical machine is good for some theory. Links below might come some help. http://pepowerexams.com/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoTRQknkwX5_Xv5s7m3v31g check this one out.
10. ## Pinpointing Shortcomings

Just make sure you try to understand the question first. It is really important because PE exam questions have lots of unnecessary sentences just to divert you from the main objective. Do not stress your mind with 6 min per question time dedication. You can think the other way round if you really have to do time allocation. U have 40 questions each half. Then you only have to solve 10 questions each hour. That is obviously better than 6 min thing I think. All the best for your exam.
