    Texas PE- Post PE Exam

    Good luck to you! I was super stressed about writing the SER and it really wasn't a huge deal.

    Texas PE- Post PE Exam

    Yes, I submitted everything around December 20th and got my license number on January 17th. I work for a local government permitting office, so I review about 30-40 different projects per week. So for my SER, I did a brief summary of what I review for in all projects and any other responsibilities I have. Then I broke down the types of projects I review and provide a little more detail in what I look for in them. Then I listed some of the names of the projects I had reviewed. It kind of seems like they don't look at it in too much detail. The technical reviewer said there was only one administrative reviewer at the time, so I am sure they look for the bare minimum. I just made sure to use words like analyze, calculate and recommend. Hopefully that helps!
  5. Below are the links for some transportation study materials and some other miscellaneous engineering books, most of which are still on the suggested references for the April exam. May consider discounting if multiple items are purchased. Local pickup also possible (West Houston). Let me know if you would like to arrange payment outside of ebay.

    Texas PE- Post PE Exam

    My SER was a whopping 3 pages. I’ve only ever worked at one place and I don’t do design, so I just kind of summarized what I do at work and typical projects I would review. I really don’t think they are too particular as long as you have your recommendations and that your job sounds engineering related

    TX PE Civil 4th Attempt

    You might be able to petition the board to waive this requirement. I think they usually require you to take some additional engineering courses or something like that, but it definitely can't hurt to ask! You are definitely not the first person in this position.

    Green Book 2018

    If you look at the specifications from NCEES, they state "PE exam specifications and design standards are posted 6 months before the exam administration. Updates for the April exams are posted in November, and updates for the October exams are posted in May." The specifications still state that the 6th edition is the design standard for the exam.

    October 2018 - Funny Exam Stories

    I brought a full on wagon to carry all my stuff-transportation has about 13 references-I definitely had one of the biggest hauls of anybody. Despite what other people on here have said about the more references you bring, the less likely you will fail, I did pass with a score 82%, so take that! I don't think people outside of structures/transportation realize how many books are literally there just to find design values.

    I believe you get a packet with a form to fill out for them to approve your seal. I printed the form out from TBPE and it looks like you need to stamp the paper and provided a passport-like photo. I would assume additional information would be provided with that form on seal requirements, name to use, etc. https://engineers.texas.gov/newlicense.html It looks like first and last name only would be acceptable. I know I have seen just all variations of initials and names. It seems like it just has to have your full last name and no nicknames

    Logged into NCEES this morning

    I am glad I am not the only one that has to recheck. I rechecked each time I told someone new lol. I still think they made a mistake, but both the NCEES and TBPE websites show that I passed!

    When You Should Add PE After Your Name

    I need to do that now. I wished I would have done it right after the exam so that I would have something official to show for passing, but I was pretty sure I failed pretty badly. I did do the fingerprinting and ethics exam, so I just need to write up my SER and get recommendations, which is a pain, but a whole lot easier than studying! It would have been fun to sign my Christmas cards as Rebecca, PE, but I guess I can do that next year lol

    October 2018 - Funny Exam Stories

    I had a similar situation. I did everything right the day before: took the day off, got up somewhat early, took my dog for a long walk, went to see a movie, ate a decently healthy dinner and got in bed around 10. Laid in bed and stared at the ceiling all night. As time went on, I was so angry. Months of preparation and I was going to fail because I couldn’t fall asleep! I finally fell asleep around 3:30 and my alarm went off at 5:30. Felt like crap during the whole exam and walked out looking like a zombie. Some guy looked at me and asked if my test was really that bed. Went home, ate some tacos, and came to terms with the fact that I would be retaking the exam again in April. I told everyone at work that I failed and put the April 4th date on my calendar. Shockingly, I passed! I still check every few hours to make sure they didn’t make a mistake. I did not feel great about the test and knew that I probably made some dumb mistakes. I am so relieved and excited to sell all of the transportation reference books I had to buy!
