  4. Looks like I posted in the wrong forum earlier and have no idea how to delete them... I'm in IL, recently graduated (May 2011) with my MSCE with an emphasis in Structures. I was reading up online and discussing with a couple of coworkers and have a few questions: My coworker was saying that we can take the test before we have 4 years of the required experience. The license just wouldn't be valid until I have obtained the required experience. Is this right? From my understanding, as a structural guy, I'm supposed to take the SE exam, but I was wondering if I can take the PE exam as well? Would this be useful at all if I'm doing strictly structural work? If I only have an SE and I'm transferring to a state in which SE doesn't exist so a PE is required instead (like Indiana), how would that work? Would the SE license be acknowledged as a PE license instead?

  6. My College had a co-op/internship program that allowed me to work in my field while I was in school as an intern. I was wondering if this counts towards the 4 years of experience that I'll need to take my PE being as I was still in school during that period. I'm mainly looking to take my PE in DE and was wondering if anyone else did this. Thanks guys!
  7. I took the PE Exam in October 2011 and passed the first time. I bought just about every reference that I could get my hands on and I'm happy to be sending them off. I am somewhat similiar to a previous seller. I took a PE Exam review course and recieved the 11th edition of Lindeburg's CERM and Practice Problems but did not find this to be a problem when I studied with others. Even if you do not buy my books...I strongly suggest that you also buy the 11th editions because they are a bit cheaper. I took the Construction Afternoon section and feel that most (if not all) of my references helped. Some helped me more during my study time...some were a better help as an exam reference. I want my pricing to be fair and reasonable; therefore, I have NOT included the price of shipping into each item. I have been burned on shipping in the past...I thought that the price for the book was fair, but when the seller added a flat $10 in for shipping (even though it only cost him $2.50)...I was a little upset. The prices below reflect just the cost of the book. I will get a price quote for shipping to your address prior to mailing the book (prices vary depending on your location). I will then inform you of the price, if all is agreeable...the final sell will be the price advertised below plus the cost of shipping. I have set prices based on Amazon Trade-in Value and book condition. Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam, 11th Edition by Michael R. Lindeburg, P.E. I used this book quite a bit to study for the morning Civil PE Exam. It has all of the tables and reference material that you will need for the morning. The 11th edition is practically the same as the 12th edition and it's cheaper. Excellent condition, I can count on one hand how many pages have writing or highlighting. Brand new $200, $150 Civil Engineering Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam, 11th Edition by Michael R. Lindeburg, P.E. The practice problems are a bit challenging, although extremely helpful in familiarizing yourself with the CERM. If you can get through these you will be very well prepared in the morning section of the PE Exam. Excellent condition, no permanent marks in the book Brand new $65, $35 Civil PE Sample Examination, 2nd Edition by Michael R. Lindeburg, P.E. Like the Practice problems, this exam is harder than the actual exam; however, I went through it twice when I was practicing problems for the PE. I felt that it was helpful in familiarizing myself with my ability to use references QUICKLY, plus understanding these problems made me more confident in my ability to pass the real PE.

  8. Hi all, I am planning on taking the PE Exam in April for the Architectural specialty. I've done research online and haven't been able to find much on this specialty exam. Any suggestions on where to begin? Will be taking the exam in Illinois, thanks!
  9. These questions may be impossible to answer, but even if you don't know the exact answer take a guess. I'm curious to see what other people think about this. 1) What % of people who are taking the 16hour structural test already have a PE (ie PE Civil/Structural/etc.) ? 2) What % of people take the Building vs Bridge tests? 3) What are the pass rates Building vs Bridge? 4) Does anyone else have to pay for all of the Codes, Study books, and Exams out of pocket (ie your company does not help you out at all) ? My guesses: 1) 50% - on test day it seemed that probably 1/2 of the people taking the exam were 30+ years old...maybe I am making an incorrect assumption based on age. 2) 80% Building vs 20% Bridge - of the people I talked to on all 4 days I took this exam ( I'v failed both sections twice now) only one person besides myself took the bridge test and probably 12-15 people were taking the building test. I didn't talk to everyone so I'm assuming there were more bridge takers, but maybe not? 3) Much lower for Bridge than building - A lot of people complain on this message board about the high amount of bridge questions, but in practice I basically use 1 code; AASHTO. So while there may be a number of bridge specific questions on the morning section of the exam there are A LOT more building specific questions...for instance questions on the other 9 codes this test covers that aren't AASHTO. It is not my intent to sound whiny about how hard the bridge test is. Both of the tests are very hard and clearly I didn't pass because I didn't take this test seriously enough and I didn't study enough. Everyone taking this exam has to study something that is outside their comfort zone / field of expertise. I am really just curious to get some other peoples perspectives. 4) Yes, I can't be the only one. - this is just me being whiny and giving others a place to vent their frustrations.
  10. Does anyone know how to get a receipt from NCEES or Continental Testing (Illinois) for the cost of the test? Now that I've passed, my employer will reimburse me for the cost, but I'm not sure which entity I paid, and whether they emailed me a receipt, or how I could get access to another copy. Any ideas?
  11. I live in the phoenix area and have not been able to find a classroom setting for a mechanical PE review course. I failed the October test and feel like I need more structure when I’m studying. Therefore I have been researching Live online Mechanical PE review courses and seem to have found only these two that are being offered for the spring 2012 test. - School of PE - http://www.schoolofpe.com/pemechanical/ - Minnesota Society of Professional Engineers (They are offering a spring course and say the info should be up next week sometime) - http://www.mnspe.org/displaycommon.cfm?an=1&subarticlenbr=11 Has anyone taken either of these and can comment on the positives and negatives? Just as background here are other ones I found and ruled out: - Testmasters-no online option for mechanical - Kaplan – sells CDs no online version - PPI – CDs, classes in CA, no online course http://ppi2pass.com/shop/pe-exams/mechanical-pe-exam/mechanical-pe-review-course-permp.html - Irvine institute of technology is not offering a spring course - http://www.irvine-institute.org/admissions_iit.htm - University of Delaware – Course already started in November http://www.engr.udel.edu/outreach/short-courses/pe-review/index.html
  12. I'm looking for books, exam samples etc for the PE Control systems exam. Thanks.
  13. Dear all, I recently purchased the following books and I have not even used the once. Due to a personal emergency, I will not be able to take the SE exam in the near future as I had anticipated and thus I do not have a need for these books at the moment. They are BRAND NEW. I have taken photos of them if you wish to see their condition and I can e-mail them to you. I will negotiate on the shipping charges and we can share those costs. 1. Structural Engineering Reference Manual - 5th Edition [PPI] - $95.00 2. Structural Engineering Solved Problems - 4th Edition [PPI] - $75.00 Again I want to stress that these books are brand new. Please e-mail me at ramtin61@gmail.com if interested. Thank you.

  15. Please post your PE Exam results here (MICHIGAN PE) - - Thanks
  16. While I continue to WAIT for my PE results, I have started to wonder about some RUMORS I have heard and was hoping someone on here can clarify them for me. I am new to North Carolina and just sat for the Civil/Transpo exam for the first time (October 2011). I have heard two consistent rumors since I moved to North Carolina: Rumor #1: The NC Board establishes their own cut score after given the scores from NCEES. (I don't believe this is true due to the timing of the scores, I would just like to hear it from someone.) Rumor #2: It doesn't matter if you aced your depth module and one or two sections of your breadth module, you have to correctly answer a certain percentage in each of the sections of the breadth exam to 'Pass' the exam. On a side note, how is it that NCEES posts a 69% pass rate for first time takers (40% for repeat takers) yet I see some states have a overall 50-60% pass rate? Are there that many repeat takers or do some states have a 70-90% pass rate to bring up the average? Any help would be appreciated and would help to ease my nerves. Thank you.
  17. Hi all: I passed the civil/sanitary PE exam on my first attempt, along with the CA special sections for seismic and surveying. I have some books for sale that might be useful for someone else now. These were very useful for me in passing the test, and I highly recommend them to anyone taking the test. I am a very careful user, so even if I read the books, you would think these were brand new. I don't mark/highlight or fold pages. Coming from a smoke-free home, these books are without marks, dings, tears, highlights, shelf wear, or anything that would make you think this was not a new book.

  18. I passed the principles and practice exam in Illinois before I had my required experience in. I passed in Oct 2010 and had my required experience complete in May 2011. I have heard that other states will not accept my professional engineer license to be transferred to their state because of this. Has anyone else heard this or run into a situation where this was the case? If so, do you have a list of states that will not allow my license to transfer to their state without retaking the principles and practice exam? TIA!
