  1. I've been searching these engineering forums trying to find someone who has shared their experience preparing for the Structural PE April 2018 and have been unsuccessful ... I would really appreciate If anyone could share their experience and would also be willing to provide ANY advice as to: 1) What PE prep course to take? One that has a good breadth review as well as a structural depth review. 2) What study materials did you think were good to use while preparing for the exam? 3) What books did you take to the exam and use while taking the exam? ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!!
  2. Selling all 6 volumes of the Testmasters review course. The books are from the spring 2018 class. I took the course in Houston and thankfully was able to pass the exam. The books have content on the topic followed by review problems along with the solutions. Only wrote on 2 pages in volume 3. Selling them for $200 OBO. Will only accept PayPal. Will ship same day. Let me know if you have any questions regarding the books. If you send me your email address I can send you pictures of the books. Volume 1: Water Resources & Environmental I Volume 2: Water Resources & Environmental II Volume 3: Transportation I Volume 4: Transportation II Volume 5: Structures & Geotechnical Volume 6: Construction
  3. I'm now applying for Civil PE registration in CA (I have all my qualifying experience). One year of my qualifying experience was in MA under a licensed Environmental PE. Obviously Environmental is a subset of Civil, but since there's a specific Environmental PE title in MA, I'm concerned about whether his reference will be valid for my civil app here in CA. From the CA PE application FAQ, for an applicant seeking registration as a civil PE, "all references must be licensed engineers authorized to practice civil engineering." From the Code of Massachusetts Regulations 250 CMR 5.01(3) "Engineering Registrants must restrict engineering practice to areas of competence based upon their education and experience qualifications." The way I read this, if my former boss is competent to practice civil engineering in MA, he's a valid reference for my CA civil PE app. Do I need to have him write a letter in addition to stamping my engagement form stating the above to the CA Board? I'm applying my Master's Degree in Civil Engineering as part of my qualifying experience. CA states that a reference is required for all qualifying experience. Does that mean that my grad school professors registered as PE's can serve as qualifying references for me? Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any help you choose to give me!

  5. Hello, I have passed my PE construction exam and barely touched this book. Crazy expensive online for over $200. I am selling for $175 with free shipping at the below ebay link:
  6. Hi. I'm getting my license, but I'm in the new process. in which you have to pass the PE before you submit your application, and then you are authorized to take the State Specific. As stated in: I already passed the PE filled my application got a response and passed the 2 state specific tests. ( I took the last test on May) So I thought I would get my license number on the next go around which just happened June 22. But it turns out I didn't So I email the board and apparently I should have submitted a Notice of Successful Examination form to state that I already passed the PE. Wouldn't that be implicit since I was already authorized to take the State Specific? It doesn't make sense. Anybody has some experience regarding this?
  7. PASS October 2015
  8. *** The review course for the October 2019 exam starts August 8, 2019. Contact Lina Malechkova at The start date for the next PE (Civil) Review Course (February - April 2017) is February 7, 2017. 1. You are welcome to use either Goswami’s All In One 3rd edition (2015) or Lindeberg’s CERM as your primary reference. 2. The first 10 lectures (out of 21) of the course will be devoted to AM (breadth) topics, and the following 10 lectures will be devoted to the 5 depth areas. Emphasis will be on problem solving in all the sessions. Approximately 20 problems will be discussed in a typical 3-hour session. 3. Lecture 21 will serve as a capstone review session where ‘last minute’ questions from all 5 subject areas will be discussed. This session will also allow us to address queries about the end-of-course practice exam which will be sent out a week before this session. This has the potential to become a student-led session, where the class participants ask questions (either broad subject based, or specific question based), to be addressed by the instructor. 4. The cost to enroll in the 63-hour course is $850, which can be lowered by $100 if registration is completed early. The anticipated start date is Tuesday February 7, 2017 and the last lecture is scheduled for Tuesday April 18, 2017. The deadline for early registration is December 23, 2016. The PE exam is Friday April 21, 2017. 5.

Course delivery is via live online WEBINARS. The meeting time is Tuesdays and Thursdays 6 pm – 9 pm Eastern Standard Time. Lecture 1 is a Tuesday. So is Lecture 21, which is a capstone review. 8. Lectures will be recorded and archived on Google Plus. Lecture videos are uploaded to Google Plus within 2 hours of completion of the live lecture. Lectures are archived for the duration of the course. Never miss a lecture! 9. Approximately 600 pages of course notes (PDF) are shared with students upon registration. With early registration, you can start your personal review ahead of the course start (recommended). 10. Approximately 300 practice problems (PDF).

    Today's the day. Congrats to those that passed. If you failed, good luck next time.

    Redacted Sincerely, CTOD
  11. #149 says Continuous duty (not load) , but the solution considers 1.25. Is that correct? #105: When the question states 4 conductors, I assume 3 current carrying conductor and 1 neutral. Here again, the solution consider all 4 conductors to be current carrying. Is that correct?

  13. Hi, I am from CA and I am planning to registrar as a PE in the State. While I think that I have qualifying experiences (engineering work for more than 3 years after completing my Civil PhD), the people I worked under did not have a PE license. Now, as CA board wants at least 4 reference letter with at least one from your supervisor (PE), I need your help with how to proceed. I am wondering if you all good people have any advice for me. Thank you!
  14. Hi All, I saw 2 conflicting answers on this, so wanted to confirm which one. When I convert from Delta transformer to Wye, does my voltage across line and neutral (Vln) in wye remain the same as delta phase voltage (Vab) or does it get divided by root 3 (Vln= Vab/ root 3). Also do the phase angle get shifted by -30deg? Any reference will also help. Thanks in advance.
  15. Below is the list of books I'm selling. I took the test in October this year and passed using most all of these. I also have the current Civil Engineering Reference manual Listed on Ebay but will sell outside if wanted, forgot I had an account here when I started the listing. I put together the list of books I had and searched the web to see what the cheapest prices out there are right now on amazon or ppi or where ever and I have tried to list mine a little cheaper. The CERM is listed on ebay for $200+Shipping right now. Below is my book list and asking price. All of these are cheaper than I found anywhere on amazon or PPI or ebay. If someone wants it all we can work out a better deal and I'll throw in the NCEES Construction practice exam that they sell for like $30 or $40 with the package. It has some pencil marking on it, but still in great shape. Quick reference for Civil PE 9th edition $70.00 Construction Depth Reference manual 2nd edition $145.00 6 minute solutions Civil PE construction Depth problems 2nd edition $55.00 Construction Depth Practice Exams 2nd Edition: $50.00 Civil Engineering Solved Problems 8th $45.00 Civil PE Practice Examination 6th Edition $75.00 Engineering Unit Conversions 4th Edition $20.00 April 2017 Edition 29 CFR 1926 OSHA Construction Industry Regulations $25.00 ASCE 37-14 Design Loads on Structures During Construction $50.00 ACI SP-4 Formwork For Concrete 8th Edition $200.00 All my books are in great shape, some paper back books may have a light crease on the cover from being opened and used like any paperback. In a few of the books there is some very light pencil marking, but that's only on very few pages and only a few of the books. If I get time I may even clean it up, just trying to represent it all accurately. I have pictures but they are on my phone not on my work computer, best advice is pm me with your email and I can email them to you of any books you want to see. Prices are OBO but do not include shipping. I'm guessing shipping to be between $2-$4.00 but I'm not sure until have envelopes and zip codes. I'm in Hampstead NC(near Wilmington NC), open to local pickup, or will ship. Thanks!
  16. They changed the refile date for the Civil PE Exam to "continuous filing". I emailed the Board and they have not gotten back to me. Does anyone know what this means as far as the last date to go onto NCEES and register for the exam?? Surely you wouldn't be able to pay the day before the test (April 13th, 2018). There must be some kind of cut off right?? I would like to register on the later side... because life is always throwing me loops and I've had to "No Show" before and lose my 350 bucks. Thanks for any help!

  18. I'm trying to get an FE Waiver in CA and have a few questions and I'm wondering if anyone here can help as I'm waiting for a phone call back from the board. I'm an EE with over 20 years of experience in an exempt environment. So this translates to having only one reference that has a stamp and a true struggle to find sups/managers that aren't dead or retired (I wish I was joking about the dead part sadly). 1. "In responsible charge" seems to be a licensed PE term/classification. How do I translate this for my exempt references? The application says ( "At least one of the licensed references must be from a person in responsible charge over the applicant for each engagement for which the applicant desires credit." 2. Do I need to provide references for all my engagements? I have experience performing work outside of electrical engineering, including my current job which is civil. 3. What should my exemption references say in the fill-in-the-blank after "I am legally exempt from licensure because" ......... ? Does anyone else have any advice as to how to help your reference fill out the form when they are likely not familiar with the terminology in the form. I'm worried it will be a barrier to getting these back. TIA, Jennifer

  21. Has anyone had any issues trying to get a decent explanation as to why their experience write up in New York State was discredited? I put in for 7 years and 11 months of engineering experience and they only gave me credit for four years. (I need six years with an engineering technology degree.) I have called and emailed the New York State Department of Education multiple times and they refuse to give me detailed answers as to why they would not count some of my experience, and which pieces of experience did not count. All I want is to know where my experience fell short, and if my current position has been counted as 100% so that I know to apply again in two years. They told me that the process is held in confidentiality. I feel like if they felt strongly enough to knock time off my application that they should stand behind it and give me some reasons....I feel like this top-secret process gives too much power to a few people's biases or egos and that they can make up any excuse to deny someone... One tidbit of information that I was able to get out of the secretary on the phone was that they did not count my experience that occurred before my Bachelors Degree. They said that the work I did during school doesn't count because it is part of the Bachelors degree process, but the work I did was completely separate from my degree... I feel like that is an absolute garbage reason to knock a year of experience off. You are able to become a PE without any degree in NYS...why doesn't my summer work count? I have emailed my assemblyman & the state senator in my district because I feel that for my $400 write up fee, I am entitled to find out why I was denied...If you are going to tell me I suck, you better be able to tell me why I suck. I am all fired up and on the warpath now...Has anyone else had any negative run ins with NYS?
  22. I signed up for the EET on demand course (structural depth) and starting it today. Is there a class schedule that I can follow? I feel like I’m missing something. I was given the instructions on how to reach the videos and then the big binder and that’s it. I don’t even know where to start. The recording contents are in no particular order and I’m finding myself trying to search for the appropriate video title for the first section of the binder. I take it we just dive right in and start from beginning to end with what’s in the binder? Please help if any of you have taken the on demand course or are taking it now.
  23. Hi All! I recently obtained my PE. I was wondering if I should purchase malpractice insurance or some other form of insurance to protect myself. What do you think?
  24. Have a quick question. I have submitted my NCEES record to NC board, and filled out /submitted the short application last week. When should I expect them to issue licenses? They had a board meeting Wednesday. Just getting anxious. Thanks.
  25. I have up for sale a few of my PE books from when I took the exam in April 2017. I recall them all being in like new condition, but will double check the HCM before finalizing the sale as it's been awhile since I looked at these. I do know for a fact that I did not write in the practice exams while taking them. Feel free to ask for some random photos of pages, etc. to verify condition if desired. All prices include shipping to US48! NCEES Practice Exam (2014) - Transportation Depth - $35 (I paid $52.56 after NCEES's massive shipping fees) Goswami - Practice Exam for the Civil PE Exam: Breadth + Transportation Depth (2015) - $23 Goswami - Practice Exams for the Civil PE Exam: Two Breadth Exams (2013) - $22 HCM 2010 (Highway Capacity Manual) - $190 If you want all 4 of these I will drop the total from $270 down to $250. I also have a spiral bound copy of the CERM table of contents (with minor highlights) that I can toss in for free to any order that wants it. Send me a PM if interested and if you want to do any back and forth discussion please include your email address so my inbox here doesn't fill up quick.
