  1. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a glossary to reference for the seismic exam? For survey, one of the listed references was " Definitions of Surveying & Associated Terms" which I found very helpful during the exam, basically a dictionary of survey terms. Curious if anyone knew of one similar for seismic. Thanks in advance.
  2. Anyone with Evaluator 2 completely scheduled their tests yet? I was approved 2 weeks ago and still haven't received my email to schedule my tests. I've checked my spam folder too.
  3. Apologies if this has already been talked about in a different thread but does anyone know the timeline for scheduling the tests? About two weeks ago I received an email from the board saying I was approved to test in Q1 2020 and to keep any eye out for instructions on how to schedule the tests. I was hoping to take surveying on 1/13/20 and chalked up not receiving an email on how to schedule the test due to the holidays. I've diligently checked my spam folder, tried reaching out to the testing center and board and have not heard back yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I'm about to finish up Reza's course now and it definitely helps. I read on a different thread to attempt the problems on your own first then sit through the course. Also recommend doing that, I was basically pulling my hair out with frustration after first going through his book, but after sitting in his lectures he does a pretty thorough job of explaining everything. He also admitted that some of his problems are harder than the exam and in the course advises you which problems to focus on.
  5. Thanks, that's what I was thinking. I feel like along side the preparation, in order to pass you need to have the confidence and right mind set. And I feel like I'd walk into the test feeling under prepared if I stuck with the SoPE. Other side of the coin is, already invested money in the course. But if I feel like I'd have to study again and pay for the different course next time, might as well pay for the different course up front.
  6. I finished the SoPE course for surveying and it's littered with typos, has anyone else completed it? I also worked most of the Reza workbook and that seems significantly more detailed and thorough (also easier to digest). I know the pass rate says something like 87% of people who took the course passed, but I'm starting to feel more comfortable with the Reza book. Any suggestions? Worth bailing on school of PE? @MsCivilEngineer did you end up going through with SoPE? Thanks in advance for the help. Also, I'm currently signed up for the seismic course as well but now having second thoughts after going through the survey course.
  7. Thank you too Geo2019. I'm going to be focusing on Hiner and Reza. Appreciate the feedback
  8. Pumped to hear all of you guys passed, congrats!! Hate to ask, but I've been reading through countless forums about what study material to use and a lot of it is contradictory. So figured it made the most sense to ask the people who just passed. Sounds like Hiner's the go to for seismic, but I've yet to find a trustworthy survey reference, any recommendations? I'm taking the School of PE class, but would like to do a workbook and some practice exams as well (tbh: the amount of typos the professor admitted to during the class is a little concerning). Also if you guys had to study all over again, anything you'd do different? Congrats and Cheers! You guys earned it!
