  1. Getting Transcripts, course description, evaluation etc etc to be done once correct? Like they are not going to ask this to do it every time you want license from a different state? That would be too much. Once this is complete, it will stay on their record for ever. correct?
  2. Do all foreign degrees need to go though credential evaluation? (expensive $350) or when NCEES gets transcript they let you know whether it needs to be evaluated. I would think if the foreign degree is not ABET then they will put it through credential evaluation, is this correct?
  3. Yes warm weather all the time, occasional cold is ok. Prefer to have no snow, but occasional snow is fine, having lived up north. need very short winters.
  4. I didn't realize Austin real estate is crazy. Not sure why?
  5. I often feel that true test of character and endurance is not in passing the first time but how you deal with failure and not give up. I have not known anyone atleast not made it clear on the forum that they appeared 6th or 7th time and then they passed. My personal tolerance would be 3 times at max. This I'm sure must have taught you patience for life and how to march ahead in life when things just won't cooperate. I think you should share your experience and emotions from time to time.
  6. I'm and electrical engineer residing in North Eastern state. My potential new job gives me an option to work from home from anywhere in the USA. Which cities to consider? Criterion Nice weather Affordable housing Be able to find another job in the vicinity without having to move in case there is a lay off etc Few cities come to Mind 1. Houston 2. Dallas Not sure of cities in south east such as NC, SC, Georgia etc. California seems out the door because of un affordable housing.
  7. Wow! no grades yet? Look like everyone who took the test - Passed.😮
  8. Does anyone know of any certification course for free to not so expensive? I'm in the protection world and would like to add a certification course to my resume and also learn some concepts.
  9. Folks, this must have been agonizing. The worst may be over, the grades are definitely coming out next week. I don't know why NCEES can't put a firm date when they are 2 weeks from publishing the results saving folks anxiety. At the beginning there might be a lot of variables but after 5-6 weeks of exam, they have a clear picture and should be able to put out a firm date towards the end. Once they give you a date, you mentally prepare yourself to wait till that time and you know there is nothing you can do.
  10. Tsunami is coming today. Give us the good news folks!!!
  11. If the repeat question was way too difficult then it wouldn't matter. if the repeat question was way too easy then it wouldn't matter either. It would matter if it was mid level, those who got it right got it right twice and those we got it wrong got it wrong twice and this can be beneficial and harmful. Regardless, a lot of people put a lot of hours, so this shouldn't happen. I believe they might just throw this question out and people will be curved based on 78 questions, that should make it fair. Fortunately there is easy way to fix this goof up and that is to throw the two questions out. A lot of times, you don't even have that option.
  12. I think that was a trick question to see if same person comes with same choice after due diligence in the morning and in afternoon session, otherwise you know that person was playing some video game.
  13. That goes to show how genius test makers are.
  14. I recently received PE license from NY state. I heard you need to complete certain PDUs every 3 yrs? Also do you have to pay registration fee every 3 yrs to remain active? Also how about if your job doesn't require PE stamp, can you go inactive and not pay the registration and activate when you need it? Under what circumstances your PE licence can become inactive ( Barring doing some bad stuff)
  15. I'm power systems engineer doing coordination and arc flash studies in my current role. I recently passed Power PE exam. I was wondering how I can advance my career? Is joining some consultancy firm a way to advance your career? Can you please provide some ideas on job postings where I can utilize PE and advance my carrier. I know there are many positions which require PE as a prerequisite.
