  9. You’ve probably heard the phrase “Get those brain juices flowing…” and it makes sense that the flowing of said “brain juices” would be beneficial in studying for the FE Civil, PE Mechanical, or SE Vertical exam, right? So, what is the best way to promote information consolidation? Our answer: Practicing Problems. Actually practicing a set of problems may seem simple enough, but psychological studies have proven that there is a lot of science behind what makes practicing problems effective. In fact, practicing has been found to be one of the most effective techniques for studying because of the boost in cognitive functionality when doing so. Read More

  13. Hello All! My name is Kenneth Vallespin @citizenken PE from the Philippines and I am the owner of the website PinoyPE.com. I am a longtime lurker on this forum and one of the lucky souls who received guidance and support from the kind people here at engineerboards.com. I took the PE exam last Dec 2018 in Saudi Arabia and eventually as a non-citizen/non-resident I was able to become registered in Kentucky and Illinois. I am sharing my journey on my website/blogpost on the advice of one of the people here who helped me a great deal: Josh S. @ElectronicsPEPrep of http://electronicspeprep.com/. My apologies if I'm unable to repost it here as it has a lot of pictures and mess up the formatting and it's quite frankly TL;DR. Hoping that it could help some people here who are non-US citizens looking to be registered/licensed in the US. The blog post is here: Unlocking the P.E. <http://pinoype.com/2019/06/18/unlocking-the-pe/> Thanks very much and please feel free to give me holler at ken@pinoype.com
  14. Hello everybody. I'll be moving to the US next month and I'm trying to figure out whether to use NCEES or WES for credential evaluation or not even get an evaluation at all. I have a bachelor's degree in Electronics Engineering from a Brazilian university. It will be a couple of months after I arrive in the country that I'll have a worker's permit, so I have some time to figure what to do. I've seen lots of posts here talking about NCEES credential evaluation being needed to sit for an FE exam and I get that, but I also found this company called World Education Services (WES) that offers credential evaluations not only for licensing puposes but also for educational, if I want to go to grad school at some point for example. Essentially, I wanna figure what's the best course of action to take. I definitely need to work when I get my permit to help support my fiancee, so grad school is something I don't yet can/want to do. Does anybody know if WES credential evaluation is also accepted to sit for an FE exam? Is getting a credential evaluation and taking the FE even necessary for an entry level position? Is it something that can be postponed? Thank you in advance!
  15. Hi guys! This is my first post on EngineerBoards.com, and I'm here to take advice on what I can do to improve my chances of passing the next FE Exam. I took it two times: first time in September (a month after graduating with a degree in Mechanical Engineering) and the second time in November. I happened to fail both times. For the first time, I studied for only 1 month or so. I only used the FE Mechanical Review Manual (2014) by Michael R. Lindeburg for the first attempt, and I pretty much went over every section in it. I also did not do any practice exam. Then I failed, so for the second time, I decided to use the same review manual and along with that, I took an online Fundamentals of Engineering Exam review course on Coursera. I used the FE Mechancial Review Manual along with the online course. I also took a practice FE exam about 3-4 days before the exam. I took the exam, and I failed again. I looked over my diagnostic reports, and I noticed that I did slighlty better on my second attempt. I was at or above average for three sections on my second attempt while on my first exam I was above average for only one section. On both exams though, the last section (Mechanical Design and Analysis) was a complete disaster for me as I couldn't get any of the questions right. I probably spent too much time trying to solve the other questions, and then couldn't get any time to properly solve the mechanical design and analysis problems. Could this be the reason I failed? I'll put my diagnostic reports here so that you guys can get an idea of how I did on both times. What sections shoud I focus on? What kind of resources did you use to pass the FE Exam? Please let me know, and thanks in advance!
  16. Wanted to see if anyone in this forum had success using their construction engineering/construction management experience for the NYS PE application using the examples shown on the ASCE guidance (https://www.asce.org/uploadedFiles/News_Articles/Const Engr PE Guide Web.pdf). Thanks.
  17. Hello Everyone! New here, but giving back to this forum just as it gave something to me. Resources and hope! I recently moved to the from Canada with a few years of experience in my hands after graduating as an Electrical Engineering candidate in the summer of 2013. While I hadn't been out of school for long, I still lost all hope of being in a school/study environment again and was worried about this FE Electrical and Computer CBT based exam. After looking at resources and forums I decided to start my studying. I moved here in April and with wanting to take my PE Power exam in the April of 2017, I decided to dedicate some time this year (2016) to study and try and pass the FE. So I bought the FE Electrical and Computer textbook by Lindeburg on Amazon for 50-ish $ and started studying by the end of July. I followed the schedule it says and tried to do one chapter a day, and sometimes three-four on weekends. Lindeburg suggests that you could start the course 45 days ahead of the exam and complete all 45 chapters without rest days and pass the exam the next day. I think this is pretty accurate since the exam is not very tough. Along with the textbook, I tried to learn where all the units and equations are in the FE Reference book which is the exact same book given to you on the computer in the exam. I also watched Raiya Energy Academy's Youtube videos online and used it for different questions and examples. I also found some online assessments that started a timer and told you how you did. And finally I made sure to really practice with my calculator and use the special functions like complex conversion, matrices, vectors, equation solving, computer numbering formats, and boolean logic. This last part is really important because doing all these in your calculator, saves you time, which gives you more minutes in the end for harder problems or for reviewing. After I was done going through the book, I decided to book the exam three weeks from finishing the book, and spend these weeks looking at the book and the reference manual again, but this time just doing the problems. I am so glad I did the steps above, because after I did the exam on a Friday, I found out I passed online the next Wednesday. Hope this helps you!
  18. 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?
  19. I went to a Big-10 engineering school, but got a BSE in an interdisciplinary engineering program that wasn't ABET-certified. I went on to get master's and doctoral degrees in science, and I'm now tenure-track faculty with a teaching and research appointment at an engineering department in New York state. Any suggestions as to the most straightforward way to get authorization to take the FE, and later PE, exams?
  20. Guys, How close do you think I was to passing? It seems like I was near or above the avg passing score in sections 5 and 10 thru 18. It looks like the softer subjects killed me which is really frustrating such as computational tools and ethics. Anyone have a good plan of attack for passing this the next time?
