    October 2018 - Funny Exam Stories

    My guess: he passed unless he was taking Transportation/structures (assuming Civil).

    YES!!!!!!!!

    Too early for trolling!
  3. Hello. I am your neighbor in Costa Mesa 🙂
  4. Comment on Goswami book: I found this one very useful. I agree that the depth of the problem is not representative of what you see in the exam. However, I found it useful because I broke down each of the example problem as multiple problems. For example, say, the example problem is about finding power (hp) required to pump water from point A to point B where the pipes have several fittings/bends. You actually have three problems there: 1) How to set up Bernoulli's equation between two points when there is a head-changing device (i.e., pump) is present 2) How to calculate head-loss in fittings 3) How to calculate friction head loss over a length of a pipe. Techniques/short-cut equations utilized in the book to solve these were very helpful for me.
  5. Have you heard back from the board about the results of the technical review?
  6. That's too bad. I am on 63th day. I thought mine was overdue. Now, it seems I have to wait at least 3 more weeks.

    California PE Questions

    Michigan and South Carolina in my experience. Could be a lot of other states as well.
  8. I thought they get back to you with approved/denied/revision in 60 days. How come it took 90 days? Is it normal in this cycle?

    California PE Lic. Numbers??

    I am working on putting together my PE application package to be submitted to CA board. CA has a two page engagement form. From the people who went through the exercise, can anyone share their experience how they wrote their qualifying experience? Looking forward to your help.

  13. It was with bunch of legacy document for exam prep that one of my friends shared with me.
  14. Yeah, 20 years a too long of a time to remember any of those stuff. I suggest you take a good civil engineering dictionary to the exam room. There could be some theoretical question that you can answer just looking at definition of some terms. Also, I would suggest not to focus too much on actual review course material/video. Rather spend time on practicing sample problems. As you have already taken the exam, you have a pretty good idea what to expect. So, I were you, I would identify some problem types that were common on both the actual exam (Oct 2017) and the NCEES practice test. Practice those problem types first to make sure you answer them in 3-4 minutes. Also, may be write down the steps for solving some of the other problems. I wish you all the best for this October. Let me know if I can help anyway.
