  1. That's quite a drop in 2018 from increasing pass rates from 2014 to 2017, for both seismic and survey.
  2. EET for seismic. I took Hiner and failed and now taking EET course. Don't know yet how I will do but if you are considering a full course with videos and stuff, I definitely recommend EET over Hiner. It's just more elaborate, you don't have to get ASCE or CBC (everything will be in the EET manual) and EET provides way more practice problems. I used CPESR for survey and in addition solved half of "120 problems with solutions" book. This was enough for me, passed on the first try but I also did some surveying in the past so that was very helpful I am sure.
  3. I agree about hand drawing. This is when I wish these tests were still paper and not CBT so I didn't have to waste time making addtl drawings/sketches.
  4. I 100% agree that Hiner didn't provide enough practice problems. Also for me I think I missed the bigger picture and it was difficult to understand what forces were being asked to solve for. Restudying with EET now and will do looooots of practice problems this time
  5. I had exact opposite experience. Failed seismic after studying with Hiner for 3 months but passed survey with CPESR with 5 weeks of studying. For me personally seismic was a more difficult concept so now I am restudying with EET and it's just starting to seem organized in my head. Have to mention I did some surveying at work my first year so that was extremely helpful I think. But you are right that one needs to practice problems solving, that I missed when studied seismic the first time around.
  6. I also used CPESR for survey. Glad it worked out for you! And now I am studying with EET for seismic. I hope to finish their videos in time and have time to solve lots of practice problems (which I didn't do with Hiner course). I also have a toddler and pregnant with another so I hear ya 😅
  7. Sorry you failed seismic but congrats on survey! Can't even imagine studying for both at the same time. I failed seismic on my first try in February but just passed survey. How did you study and how are you going to re-study for seismic again?
  8. PAAAAASED SURVEY! Yaha!!! So happy. Now back to re-studying seismic 😐
  9. I finished all CPESR exams 3 days prior to the test and because I only had couple days left I redid the second medium one. I was going to repeat the first medium one because I thought I already forgot it but ended up doing the second medium because I did worse on that one. I am glad I did it.
  10. I would email them, they are usually very responsive. Or even call them.
  11. I didn't receive anything. They cashed my check on the 22nd - two days after my application was delivered.
  12. I am taking survey on Friday in two days, so I have tonight and tomorrow nights to study. I did CPESR CBT practice tests once. Scored 63-70%. I am half-way into "120 solved surveying problems book". Would you suggest I finish the rest of the 60/120 problems in these two nights or retake one or two of the CPESR CBT tests (easy, medium, medium, difficult)? 📱
  13. I will send you his Gmail email address from which I recently got a response from him to one of my questions.
