    Machine Design & Materials Oct 2018

    Now that I think about it, I believe i saw a problem similar to that on the NCEES practice exam. I haven't worked that specific problem yet, but it's good to know that that problem type is something to prepare for. Thanks for the heads up on this! Also, I have found that the AISC beam tables come in handy, but beware of an unreported error on case #2 in some editions. The distance for zero shear/max moment should be .5774L. In my 14th edition, the figure is correct, but the table next to it has .557L instead of .5774L. It won't throw your calculation off a whole lot, but may be confusing when you see it.

    MERM appendix

    I've bought the textbook, and also have electronic access. But i can't print any of the pages to organize some of the important figures, charts & graphs. Copying from this huge thing is a bear. Gonna tab, tab and tab some more.

    Are you planning on taking a review course at all?

    How I passed HVAC/R on the 2nd try

    I've got sort of a hybrid started already, but it is geared toward MDM takers in Oct vs. those who have already passed the exam.

    I have always thought that the Unit Conversion book would be good for Thermal/Fluids. Do you remember what unit conversions in Lindberg's came in the most handy for MDM?

    How I passed HVAC/R on the 2nd try

    Good info! Wish we had a "How I Passed" for MDM. I'd like to know the major differences in what references were actually used/needed.

    As far as references to bring to the exam, I'm planning on the DTC binders & MERM, maybe the NCEES sample exam and SMP. I've got an older machine design book from college (Fundamentals of Machine Elements), but it is riddled with errors, so doubt I'll bring that. Anything else, and i'm not going to be familiar with it enough to be efficient.

    Thanks! I don't have the MERM tabbed out yet, but it is on my list. There is soooo much information in the appendices, that it really is a requirement.

    I'm in the middle of the solid mechanics review at the moment. I'd really like to have a cut sheet with area moment properties, polar moments, etc. on a single sheet or even 2 sheets. I've printed off the beam tables from AISC at least (although they are pretty small). So i'll probably put those up front in the "Solid Mechanics" binder and flag it. Yep, need to hit office depot again.

    NICE!!! I'll be taking the exam at the same location.

    Jeez...you guys still don't have the results? The wait is going to suck something fierce!

    Machine Design & Materials Oct 2018

    I'm starting to get used to it and into somewhat of a flow. When I first started, the printing out and binding of things was throwing me off. Felt like I spent more time organizing, buying binders & tabs, etc than brushing up and practicing. I'll say one thing, MDM covers a LOT of material.
  13. Just a general thread for MDM test takers signed up for October 2018. I've recently started the DTC Mechanical review course. Anybody else getting ready for this exam?

    Good Luck on your exams

    That's some funny chit. It brings up a question though and i haven't looked into it, but slapping on a pair of noise cancelling earphones would be nice. Has anybody tried using earplugs to block out noise? I can also see there being a lot of foot tappers. It's been so long since I've taken the FE, i don't even remember if anything like that bugged me.

    Good Luck on your exams

    Or maybe you get a piece of paper telling you that you kicked its ass. How was the overall set up in OK? I'll be in Edmond myself in October.
