  1. I'm glad to read the consensus seems to be it was better on the test takers than the last couple of sessions. I can't believe it has been a full year since I put myself through that meat grinder.
  2. I'm sorry to hear about your job. What a terrible variable to throw into your test day. But let us be confident that it only made you more determined to pass!
  3. I found them helpful, especially the NEC book. It provides for a foundational understanding of the material one can expect to see on the exam. At the same time the question difficulty doesn't reflect what you'll encounter on the actual exam. That being said, no practice exam really does.
  4. Is there a way to access your surveys for previous exams?
  5. I'll be the first to say School of PE lectures are hit or miss, but I don't think I would have passed without their notes. Especially with regard to protection, since I know that is of particular concern.
  6. I did not crack open Blackburn while taking the PE exam (or even read it with any consistency for preparation). I found the protection information in the notes from School of PE was sufficiently detailed such that I was able to pass the exam, as well as easier to navigate. I took my exam back in April 2018, so the relative weight of protection to the overall exam score should be the same.
  7. Maybe that single reference guide will include, like, the entire text of the NEC? I actually might prefer a situation where I could do a Ctrl F keyword search...
  8. Okay, so any change in difficulty from the P&P exam to the CBT exam for the FE would not, in theory, have anything to do with a change in available resources during the exam.
  9. Wasn't it's always the case that the FE handbook was the only resource allowed even during the pencil and paper FE exam?
  10. Ah okay. That leads me to believe that the CBT exam will be more narrow in scope.
  11. I am curious with regard to people who took the Pencil and Paper Enviro exam if they find the PE Environmental Reference Handbook on the NCESS website more or less dense than the sum total of materials that examinees have traditionally brought on the exam day.
  12. Carrie has turned off her notifications.
  13. Ah I misremembered, I thought it was coming out in 2020. Yea that is a ways off.
