  7. I've been studying for the PE Exam in 2 weeks and have come to the realization that this path is NOT what I want to be doing with my career at this point in my life. I am unable to unregister for the exam. If I don't show up for the exam, will I receive a fail on the exam? Making sure I don't change my mind later in life and want to come back to take it, and am negatively impacted by the failed grade. Should I suck it up and take it to possibly pass, even though I know this is not what I want right now? Or do I free myself and move on for the time being?

  15. Does anyone know where I can buy the pdf version of the mechanical practice problems (PPI 13th edition)? PPI has a 1-year subscription for $100 but I'd like to have a pdf so I can use if I don't pass the first (or second) time. I did the google search but couldn't find anything legitimate.
  16. Hello friends, I was a regular consumer of this forum and despite the TROLLS, I thank all the participants for the good information posted here, that helped me pass the PE exam last April 2019 In contribution, I would like to give my own impressions of the PE exam and give you my advices as far as how to get prepared for this task. First and foremost, passing the PE exam is a tough process and requires LOTS of study time and sacrifice. If you really want this, I recommend you well establish your priorities and whatever can deviate your attention and focus from the exam, should be temporally removed from your life style. NO COURSE, NO BOOK, NOTHING WILL GUARANTEE YOU PASS THE EXAM. IT DEPENDS ON YOU!!! If you don’t give it all and put enough effort on it, failing the exam is MOST LIKELY to occur. Even though, don’t feel discourage if you fail, this exam is like no other, and lots of people don’t have the same luck of passing on the first try. The winning strategy here to not give up. ** With that being said, see below my advices, sorted by importance level: 1) Establish your strategy from the very beginning. Define what are your strongest areas and plan your study time accordingly to tackle the areas you are most likely to fail. I suggest you plan yourself to finish everything 2-4 weeks before the exam, so you have plenty of time to recap and review your weak areas, difficult questions, etc. 2) Organization is KEY, and the PE exam is sometimes more about TIME MANAGEMENT than knowledge. So, during your preparation, be consequent with the materials you use. Don’t buy or print materials to have them on the corner and rather use them. Make sure all your materials are tabbed and highlighted. Group them by category, use tabs, index or any method that can help you locate each section the fastest possible; Cross-Reference is key. Every minute you save during the exam is glory. In my case, I created a MAIN INDEX, where I referenced all the materials I had. That was my best friend during the exam. I placed that index at the back of my cheat sheet. 3) Have all the formulas grouped by topic, in one binder so you can easily find them without opening multiples books. I SUGGEST YOU PREPARE YOUR CHEAT-SHEET AHEAD OF TIME so you can edit it and add more stuff 4) Make sure you find the right materials for YOU. There are different books out there for each topic, but it depends on your personal taste. Do your research and try to find the book that better fit your necessities. 5) MASTER your calculator. Don’t make the mistake of bringing a calculator to the exam that you didn’t use before or you are not familiar with. Consider that the back of the calculator will be taken away from you, so I will suggest you write that info somewhere else. UNIT CONVERSIONS are often used during the exam. 6) Don’t spend time solving easy questions, unless there is nothing else available. I remember solving questions from books like Spin up, which are far from the exam type of questions. Write down the questions you found challenging and remember to review them multiple times the last two weeks. 7) Practice here is fundamental, so the more problems you solve, the more likely you are to pass the exam. Try to sole as many DIFFERENT QUESTIONS as possible. The people who prepare the exam are MASTERS on presenting questions in a way you never saw before. 😎 DON’T spend yoo much time on areas that are not the MEAT of the exam. Remember that there are areas like Protection and Code that have the higher number of questions. This means don’t go beyond the limits on areas like VFDs, ladder logic etc… Use wisely your time to reinforce the strongest areas. One thing that helped me A LOT was mastering the NEC. 9) However, remember all questions are graded the same, so there is no point on being a beast in "Protection" or "Rotating Machines" and then being an ignorant in other areas. I found out that typically, the questions from the easiest areas are the weirdest and trickiest. 10) Last, during the exam day, follow your strategy, this was mine but again, define yours: a) First round: only solve the questions that are familiar to you, and then flag the questions you want to leave for either the second or third round. In my case, I left all code questions, and all problems that required me to review my materials for the 2nd round. b) Second round: Solve all code questions at the same time, including NESC, NEC, ANSI, whatever…Remember to use the index and your tabs rather than randomly passing pages. Then try to solve the questions that requires more of your analysis but are not completely odd to you. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH WEIRD QUESTIONS AT THIS MOMENT. Also, leave the questions for later if you find yourself stuck. REMEMBER…Time Management!! c) Third round: At this moment, you should have done at least 50% of the questions, but it should be more than that, so now is the time to review your work quickly before moving ON. I didn't review my work the first time I took the PE and that caused me the FAIL NOTICE. To facilitate the review process, make sure you leave some clues on how you solved each question in first place, so you don’t have to double-analyze each question. Another mistake of mine the first time was solving questions without leaving clear notes. d) Fourth round: Now is the time to attack the weird questions, usually the tricky questions require reading more than once, so careful with the reading. Also try to solve any question you were not able to solve in the rounds before. Don’t make the mistake of finishing earlier, spend all the time you have trying to find the answer to the questions you have left. If you got lucky and solved all questions, then start reviewing over and over. IS NEVER ENOUGH. ** Now, I will give you the list of materials I used the most on the exam day, SORTED BY IMPORTANCE LEVEL: 1) Personal Cheat Sheet with all formulas, and Index with cross-references (NEXT TO ME DURING THE ENTIRE EXAM, USED IT 100%) 2) NEC (I don’t list the others because most of the questions are from the NEC except a few of them from the NESC and other code books) 3) Printed notes from the course I took, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (https://www.electricalpereview.com/) 4) Electrical Engineer's Guide to Passing the Power PE Exam - Graffeo (GREAT BOOK, ONE OF MY FAVORITES. HOWEVER, IT CANNOT BE USED AS THE ONLY REFERENCE; SOME AREAS ARE POORLY COVERED i.e. Power Electronics, Protective Relays…) 5) Electrical Machines, Drives and Power Systems - Theodore Wildi (GREAT FOR ELECTRICAL MACHINES SECTION, a MUST have) 6) Printed Materials (WELL ORGANIZED/TABBED BINDERS WITH USEFUL INFO IS A LIFE SAVER) 7) Power System Analysis and Design - Duncan Glover (ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR TRANSFORMERS AND PROTECTION SECTION) 😎 Protective Relaying by Blackburn (GREAT IN-DEEP MATERIAL for PROTECTION TOPIC) 9) Power Electronics Devices, Circuits, and Applications - Muhammad H. Rashid (VERY EXTENSIVE BOOK FOR POWER ELECTRONICS) ONLY USE IT AS REQUIRED, THERE IS NO NEED OF READING THE ENTIRE BOOK. I hope this can help future exam takers on their way to success. And remember, work hard and you will see the results. GOOD LUCK!

  18. 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?
  19. I started studying for an exam planning to take an exam around May-ish. Because we are transitioning to the CBT format, I guess we are more flexible in terms of when to take the exam. I'm planning to signing up on SoPE for review but I feel like I should wait until they come up with the newer lectures in April. Because we are transitioning to a new format, I feel like their October lectures will be outdated. Should I sign up on their live course and wait until April, or should I just sign up now and start studying? If I sign up on their April, I feel like I should push back on exam date, but I'd rather not. What would you do if you were in my shoes?
  20. I took and passed the CIVIL PE TRANSPORTATION EXAM this past fall. I have a bunch of books and materials that I am looking to sell. We all know the books and prep materials can get expensive! This is a great way to save a lot of money!!!! 🤑 Books include: CERM, 16th edition CERM COMPANION for the 16th edition Highway Capacity Manual Transportation Depth Reference Manual Transportation Depth 6 min questions Civil Practice problems (companion to CERM) I also have other manuals I had binded as well.
  21. 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!)
  22. Hey All, I'm taking civil structural this week and I've got all my codes. The only outdated one that I have is NDS 2012. Considering that the only real major changes to the NDS 2015 include the incorporation of cross-laminated timber, I'm wondering if anyone else is taking this risk using the older code? Thanks everyone.
  23. Still celebrating my PE pass! I think the past few weeks have taken years off of my life...
  24. Unfortunately, I failed the PE structural depth exam again. I will be attempting it for the 3rd time this coming April 2018. I am very frustrated and worried I will not be able to pass. I did not graduate with civil engineering and do not practice structural engineering in my profession. However, I did take a number of structural analysis courses and have a higher interest in learning structural than the other Civil depths. But, the structural depth is kicking my ass right now. I am in the utility design industry so many have suggested doing construction depth. I feel that I am already deep into structural and spent a lot of money on it already that I am going to just keep going. My first attempt, I got 42/80. My second attempt, I got 41/80. It's an embarrassing score. I took a PPI course both times. The course was good for breadth and okay for depth. I just signed up for EET's Structural Depth on-demand course. Looking at my diagnostics, I have issues in similar areas throughout the two times I've taken the exam. Do any of you have other suggestions or pointers I should take in order to pass this third time? I am really feeling like I cannot pass. Who goes from a 41/42 score to a passing score? I feel really defeated right now. A passing score means a promotion and much higher pay for me, so I am trying to keep my eye on the prize, but it is so hard to do after two fails. I will admit, my second time, I did not study as much. I had so much going on, I think I studied around 100 hours only. I did not feel confident before or after the exam. Please help with any suggestions or words of wisdom. Thanks EB.
