  1. Hi guys, Does anyone know taking a PE prep course would prepare me to take the EIT/FE exam? There isn't any FE prep course for chemE so I was wondering if taking a PE course would help me pass the exam... Thank you!
  2. Hi everyone, I just recently graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering. I'm kinda just chillin' at the moment but I'll be job searching in the near future. That said, I'd like to get my resume and cover letter polished before I start applying anywhere and everywhere. So established EngineerBoards community, if you have time, can you please help me look over these two essential pieces? Truthfully, I understand that while much of it especially the cover letter can be quite lengthy and wordy, I would just like to know your take on where/how to cut down everything. From the objective to the opening statements to the bullet points to pretty much anything and everything, let me know which parts are good, which parts are totally unnecessary, tacky, over-the-top, and essentially what I can and should do to make it even better. I am all ears and would greatly appreciate any constructive criticism and feedback as I take the next step towards my career. Thank you all so much for your time and help with this. Gratefully, frogger P.S. I've used some placeholders to protect my confidentiality. Cover Letter.pdf Resume.pdf

  4. This question is for those of you who are taking the Hiner course. I am working on the latest book and trying to figure out Drag Force Diagrams. My question is regarding Problem #17, Page 2-41, the solution for question 5 shows a drag force diagram. For Wall line A, it shows the Drag force to be Fd = (262 plf)(20')=5240 lbs. On the solution to the next problem, (page 2-43) it shows a drag force diagram on Wall Line 1. Fd= (69 plf)(7')-(343 plf)(7')=-1920 lbs max. My question is, why is the wall shear not subtracted from the roof shear on the solution for 2-41? I have the same question regarding problem 9.8 in the sample problems on the back. It gives a solution of 4800 lbs but does not subtract the roof shear. What am I missing here? Thanks in advance for your response. Miguel
  5. Can anyone recommend a CA Civil Survey Review Course for someone that has never performed a survey in his/her life? I am an SE looking to take the survey exam in the near future. Any recommendations and things to avoid etc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Hello coleagues engineers. I'm PE licensed in several states and I tried applying in GA for a PE license. I got an answer from the Board stating that I need to pass the 16 hrs SE exam in order to be granted one. My questions to all of you that have any experience with this exam are: 1) What Online Review Course would you recommend for the SE EXAM - Buildings? I only noticed Kaplan, School of PE and ASCE. If any other available, which do you think is most comprehensive for passing the exam? 2) What study materials (books, codes, etc) would I really need for the Buildings Exam? ( I don't intend to apply for Bridges so I assume I won't be needing the AASHTO 07 code). As I have most of the design codes I imagine I would need to just "fill in the gaps" where my experience is not so extensive. 3) What exam practice problem books would you recommend? I thank you in advance and look forward for your feed-back.
  7. I'm getting nervous about this upcoming exam. I don't think I've studied enough. I didn't take any antenna or communications course in college and after finishing the sample NCEES exam, I have no idea how I'm going to get some points in solving communications/antenna problems. Does anyone have any last minute prep tips? Should I just focus on the bulk of the sections (General Engineering, Digital, and Electronics?) Are the NCEES sample problems close to the actual problems in terms of the problem structure? In your opinion, does the NCEES sample exam prepare you to what's in the actual PE exam? Thanks, -Mike
  8. In the NCEES review problems (mechanical) problem 519 and 536 ask questions about the same lead screw. In 519 they use the average of the minor and major diameters, and in 536 they use only the minor diameter. What is the reasoning for one vs. the other, or am I simply failing to comprehend some basic principle? The only other problem I had was with #138 and was covered in the errata: http://cdn3.ncees.co/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Study-Material_2011-PE-MEC-SQS-errata.pdf
  9. Has anyone had any experience, positive or negative, in using the MGI Management Institute material to review for the PE? My old boss, who passed the first time, gave me his set of manuals. I was contemplating on going thru it, but wanted to get some opinions prior to putting in the time. Any suggestions or reviews of the materials would be greatly appreciated.
  10. So, I bit the bullet and purchased the 3 survey reference materials on ppi2pass.com. I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation of what else to study for for the CA Civil Survey test. I have the 3 mentioned on the following link: http://ppi2pass.com/shop/pe-exams-73/ca-civil-surveying-exam/surveying-principles-for-civil-engineers-spce2.html http://ppi2pass.com/shop/pe-exams-73/ca-civil-surveying-exam/120-solved-surveying-problems-for-the-california-special-civil-engineer-examination.html http://ppi2pass.com/shop/pe-exams-73/ca-civil-surveying-exam/civil-surveying-sample-exams-for-the-california-special-civil-engineer-examination-csse2.html Thanks in advance.

  15. This is the package you need for the morning session, nothing else. If you want all the books I will sell it as a package for $260 shipped. Whats different than this package and the one PPI offers? They are selling the 12th edition, and lack the NCEES sample questions and solutions book I have listed at the bottom and are charging $70 more for less material. I have gone through the 11th and 12th edition and there are only minor changes in the newer edition. The reason I also have the 12th edition is because I took a review course.
