  1. Hi all! If you took the PE Civil Construction this past Friday (October 2019), I'd like to know how you did? The morning session was fine... a few tough ones, but overall ok. Afternoon was a time crunch! Not so confident about the afternoon session.
  2. Good day all, I took my Civil PE (Construction) this past April, and was unfortunately not able to pass. I feel like I did everything - took School of PE, took an NCEES practice exam, studied all material thoroughly, revised SoPE material twice, was calm and collected during the exam, and had a very good feeling I would pass. However, seeing that "Fail" inside the red box last week crushed me really bad. Needless to say, it was not the type long weekend I had hoped it to be. But I am over it. The best I can do is put this energy/anger/frustration to good use and start studying again. I wanted to see if I could get any insights into where I went wrong. Last year, I signed up for SoPE for the on-demand classes (they were videos from the fall PE session). I took my time with them, made sure I understood the material, and worked on problems (refresher + workshop) multiple times. The week before the PE exam, I took the latest NCEES Civil PE Construction test, and tried my best to simulate the testing atmosphere. I did well, and also realized that the mistakes on the practice exam was primarily stupid ones (distractor - type). I made a mental tattoo of not to do this and read through the entire problem before starting it on the actual test. A couple of weeks before the PE exam, I started watching the new/Spring PE videos. I found the lectures to be similar, emailed all instructors about the changes in material (Fall 2017 Vs. Spring 2018), to which I received revisions and figured I was covered. I think where I lacked the most was that I did not purchase other practice tests and work them out. I really regret not doing this. Having said that, what practice tests do you guys recommend taking? Also, any tips, suggestions, advises etc. would be absolutely amazing. Also, just an FYI - I work in the construction industry, and this depth of the CIVIL PE made the most sense. The other depth topics do not apply to my line of work, besides some random geotech, water resources, structural, etc. type of encounters here and there. Thanks, much appreciated!
  3. Here is a sample question from our practice portal. We're excited to see how many people will get it right. Post your answers below, and we will post the correct solution tomorrow.
  4. Hello, I took the PE-Civil-Structures test in October 2018 and April 2019. For October test I could hardly study for 20 days and was sick on the exam day. Ended with a score of 48. For April test , I prepared really well. Spent lot of time in going through resources I had and again ended with the same identical score of 48. I have attached two diagnostics. Kindly review and let me know how should I prepare this time. These are the prepration material I hadused Breadth : CERM, All-In-One PE Exam Guide: Breadth and Depth,Indranil Goswami, Breadth Practice Tests: civilpepractice, NCEES practice test. Depth : SERM,Six-Minute Solutions for Civil PE Exam Structural Problems (glanced through it as most opined that it was way harder than test) Depth Practice test: NCEES ,Civil and Structural Practice Problems ALI AKBARI, KOUROSH, Kindly tell me what should I do different this time. This time I am thinking to just go through EET notes and solving Practice problems from Lindberg.

  7. Hi everyone: I took the Civil PE several years ago. At that time, the breadth section included questions regarding wastewater and water treatment and processes such as determining BOD and hardness. However, in my current review course for civil - construction depth, and in the NCEES civil PE exam specs, it appears those topics are not part of the test and have been moved over to people taking the environmental PE or civil - water resources depth. Of course, we are still tested on hydraulics and hydrology, but I was wondering if you may know if water and wastewater treatment are still covered in the morning section of the civil PE? Thank you, John
  8. I find the reviews about this PE Civil Practice Problems 16 ed on amazon are very low. I wonder if it is necessary to buy this book. Thanks
  9. Does anyone know where I can find a table with shear & moment diagrams for a bunch of different loading types? or is the one in the CERM as good as they get?
  10. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeEOj9gewHrJbF7yk2J2kpOXfvlI8YASqc2OxSp-8e6zOKKEg/viewform?usp=sf_link Here's a survey for all engineers. I would really appreciate it if you took it. I'm using the data for a school assignment.

  12. So i just passed my PE Exam in the state of FL in Oct, 2018. I currently work in the Power Industry designing power poles. Back when I graduated from college in 2011 (BS in Civil), the job market was in the tankers and continued till about 2015-16. This whole time i've kept my current job and now became a Project Manger overseeing the office i work in. HOWEVER, i really want to get back into Civil (Specifically in Water or Environmental). Is it to late for me to switch? Since I have a PE will any company want to hire me on as Entry Level? Anyone else in the same situation? PS - I'm willing to take a bit of a pay cut in the beginning, but hope to make some decent money later in my career after i've proven myself. Thanks for the replies in advance!
  13. Hi guys, I am trying to sell my PE Exam materials after passing the Civil PE (Transportation) exam recently. These books are still in great condition, if not like new, with very minimal to no notes or highlights on them. I did my research on prices, so these should be the best prices you can find from eBay or Amazon. Good luck!

  14. I have taken the PE Civil - Structural twice and the following is how I did: April 2017 in Texas with a score of 26/40 AM & 22/40 PM October 2018 in California with a score of 22/40 AM & 21/40 PM. The first round I studied more and used only School of PE. I had three co-workers that used their material and passed the first time so I thought I had a shot, but boy was I wrong. I studied an average of 3-4 hours per night after work and 8 hours per day on weekends. For the second time, I didn't have time at all to prepare. I recently relocated to AZ and my company wanted me to get the CA license since 90% of our bridge projects are actually based there so I decided to take it in CA - San Diego so that I can make a "vacation" out of the weekend and check out our California Office. I moved end of August and didn't really study until mid September when I was settled so I had about only a solid month to prepare. Due to the moving expense and buying everything again (moved out of Texas with only my clothes and some kitchen stuff), I didn't have money to register in a prep course so I decided to enroll in the company's free PE course and re-use the school of PE notes. I had way too much material at hand and it got overwhelming but for the most part I felt like I may still have a chance to pass it the second time and I was sorely disappointed yesterday morning. With that being said, can someone help guide this lost soul on how to properly prepare? what material I need? what practice books are a good purchase? what is the best study schedule? I am fortunate that I don't have to buy reference manuals since my company's library lets me borrow them all (so if you have more references you recommend, let me know so I can see if the library has it!)
  15. I actually have a YouTube channel where I give tips on the F.E. exam, I also go over some F.E. civil problems. If you want to check the channel, here is the link: https://youtu.be/vcadf_6cYR8. Don't forget to subscribe, and if you have any problem that you would like me to go over, leave it in the comments below the videos. Thank you for watching 😊
  16. I depended upon these three practice exams to pass the Civil Breadth, Construction Depth PE Exam in April of 2017. I made copies of each page of these books to work out the problems, so there are no markings in them. I prefer to sell them as a bundle for $160 OBO + shipping. They were purchased for the following amount: NCEES Civil/Construction Practice Exam: $56 Practice Exams For the Civil PE Exam: $26 Indranil Goswami Construction Depth Practice Exams for the Civil PE Exam 2nd edition: $100 Beth Lin Hartmann Best wishes to all that are studying!
  17. example 116.4 seismic load. Why using n=43.5/h^(1/9) to obtain the first period (1/n), not using T=Ch^x? The results from the two equations are quite a bit, one is 0.85 and the other is 0.5x. The former equation is mentioned in wind load, which has some more limitations, such as the height of building and wind direction.
  18. 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
  19. 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!

Thanks y'all, and happy studies!!
  22. Hello everyone, Just a quick introduction, I am a Structural Engineer from Canada (originally from Europe). I have 6 years of experience in structural engineering only (never done any civils). I moved to Canada 2 years ago from Europe, I have my education from Poland (BSc) and England (MSc) and I used to work in several European countries before I came here. I had my foreign education assessed by Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) and they said that I need to pass FE Civil exam in order to get my ticket in Canada. OK, I thought and I booked my exam in exam centres in Canada... It didn't really bother me as I thought I was good at what I was doing (at least that is what other engineers say). I regularly solve complex structural engineering problems and back in the UK I was in special engineering projects team, solving irregular structural analysis and design issues. I was offered to join a partnership in Canada (and I did) and my partners encouraged me to get a ticket. I didn't really know much about the FE exam, I thought it would be pure structural analysis and design (that is how it looks like in the UK, iStructE chartered engineers must pass structural exam). Then I realized that the entire exam was more complex, many questions covering different aspects of engineering but less complicated. I panicked, things like math, hydraulics and fluid mechanics I had like 8 years ago and they didn't really bothered me since then. I realized I have had not enough time to pass, overall I spent about 30h on the exam. Furthermore, I always thought that differential equations were not covered within the scope of FE Civil exam (it's not mentioned there, even though it's a scope of calculus, but at other disciplines differential equations were distinguished from calculus). I was wrong, I had 3 questions on differential equations :)) On the exam day I found the entire on-screen FE Reference book completely disappointing (I went through it before the exam and I purchased a hard copy so I knew what was there). Scrolling was f* up, every time I tried to scroll it would bounce back, zoom-in and zoom-out didn't work (e.g. if I tried to zoom-on on the equation on pg let's say 5 it would zoom-in but on page 4 or 6)... Lots of time wasting just trying to navigate through the FE reference book. I spent 3h on the first part and 2h on the second part, and obviously I run out of time on the second part so I had to quickly guess around 15-20 questions. Now, I have my results (I knew and I wouldn't pass right away) and I know I need to prepare much more than my first attempt. Stop being an arrogant and prepare like for every other exam. I have my lesson. Below is my diagnostics and you can see that my performance was really poor. Surveying was on of the parts that I had to guess due to lack of time, I didn't get any preparation on environmental engineering (environmental engineering is separated from civils degree in Europe) etc. I am thinking about taking on-demand courses at school of PE or at Testmasters, I do not have any in-class prep courses since I am in Canada and this test is mostly US... Any thoughts, good people?
  23. Hello, So here is the thing. My 2nd attempt was not successful (October 2017, Civil WRE) First Attempt: October 2016: I didn't spent that much time for studying. Also, didn't had that much practice problems. I took the ASCE Civil 22 part course. Not that much helpful at all, specially my depth was WRE and content of those course videos was not helpful, sometimes misleading compared to NCEES guideline. They felt more like a college course, not exam focused. Used CERM and some other text books. So I failed. 2nd Attempt: I really tried to ace WRE/ENV part this time, solved more problems for the afternoon based on 6 minutes, goswami and some other hand notes /practice problems. I felt confident. But this time my score was 66%.. Also, I felt I did not had enough reference materials with me, specially for environment /air quality section . Now, I really want to make a difference this time. So planning to take a review course. Which course would be better, EET or Testmasters Dallas ? I have silently followed all the posts in this board , but would highly appreciate if someone can share their recent experience List of Reference /Books: I really felt the afternoon environment section had a lot of stuff that was not covered in CERM, Goswami, 6 minutes, or even the env textbooks I took with me
