  5. Hi all, Does one need to continue renewing their EIT/EI license after obtaining their PE? Thanks.
  6. Hi, I just recently graduated from my University and passed the FE exam 2 weeks ago. In Texas, they allowed us to be able to take the PE exam with no working experience as long if you're an EIT, but will have to wait for 4 years to get the license for the experience. My question is, is it possible for someone who has no working experience in the industry to be able to take the PE exam and pass? My major is in electrical power, I currently am internship for a control systems company, but I am hoping to take my power PE soon because it's seem like the only one that most people take.
  7. So, to the best of my knowledge, the California PE Civil exam is broken up into two parts: the National 8hr exam, and the additional Seismic&Surveying exam. I believe the board allows people to take the 8hr exam before having all qualifying experience. Is this true? & if so, how early in advance can the 8hr exam be taken? I’ve passed the FE exam and am starting my masters this Fall. I know I need 2yr experience to qualify for the PE license but I was wondering if I can sit for the 8hr exam this upcoming year i.e. spring 2020 (and then take the seismic & surveying part later after 2yr experience).
  8. Exam time is rapidly closing in. If you would you prefer some expert one on one tutoring from one of our Instructors just let us know. School of PE is ready to help. We have many instructors who tutor in their specific areas of expertise. Allowing for you to have an experience customized to your needs. Learn More About Tutoring
  9. While it is true that those who take an NCEES exam during or right after college have the information needed to take the exam fresh in their mind, efficiently preparing for your chosen exam with a strategic study and preparation plan can lead to success. As we’ve worked with many students who haven’t been in the classroom for 30+ years, we’d like to say we know a thing or two about what helps those students out the best. So why do people believe this misconception?

  10. 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
  11. People always talk about their Mount Rushmore's of pro athletes. If you were building a Mount Rushmore today with the most significant Engineers who would they be? List them below, looking forward to seeing everyone's Mount Rushmore. https://www.schoolofpe.com/
  12. Hi everyone, For those who may ask for it, below the steps I went through to obtain the CA PE license. Discipline: Mechanical. 04/05/19 - Took NCEES 8 hour exam 05/14/19 - Received results notice from NCEES. Passed 8 hour. 05/20/19 - Mailed my application package for licensure via USPS priority mail (with a tracking number) 05/21/19 - CA BPELSG received my application package (tracked with tracking number) 05/29/19 - CA BPELSG cashed the check in my application package 07/29/19 - Received email from CA BPELSG, stating that my application package was technically approved 08/20/19 - Received email from CA BPELSG, stating that I was a California licensed Professional Mechanical Engineer 08/21/19 - Received mail with license number Overall the process went pretty fast once the application was submitted but putting all the paperwork and application package took a lot of time going through official school transcripts, notarization, recommendation sealed letters etc. Good luck to you all.
  13. Hello everyone, I meant to call this topic "the PE - an epic journey" but thought again about the title to give it more reach. I passed the Mech HVAC PE exam last April 2019 and here is how. The strategy I have followed is the one that has always worked for me so far for many exams but you will surely have other means to get to your goal. Given the fact that it gets challenging to exactly know what you will be tested on, and that it impacts a lot your surroundings such as your family, I prepared to maximize my chances to only take it once. It was sort of a go or no-go and I had decided that failure wouldn't be an option. Should I fail, I wouldn't have had any regrets since I was pushing it at the forefront of everything not leaving me in the doubt that I could have done better and better. All of this is about the MINDSET and what you are ready to sacrifice to make it your first priority. "I don't have time" wasn't applicable anymore. "I need to find the time" was the right approach. Given all of this, I have started studying for the April 2019 session beginning of December 2018 after procrastinating the whole November month. I am 35 year old, dad of a (by then) 2-month-old daughter (she is now 7-month-old), have a full-time job (50h/week) and my wife works full time as well. No family local support. Time to study: 5 months (~300/ 400h). That may sound overkill but that's what I put to get there. Averaged studying schedule: 2h each day of weekday and 10h per weekend with some exception when my job took over. I wanted to keep myself motivated so the reason was to NOT lose momentum! Some prep game pieces of advice to get started: 1- Kill the impostor syndrome taking you away from what you truly want. 2- You only know what you are capable of so don't let other sidetracking you from your goals. 3- Get surrounded by positive energy (people you like who support you). Make them understand what your journey is about to be like. Collateral damage will exist so better to let others know about it. 4- Make sure you can focus by chunks of time that are effective. 2h was for me the minimum to get into it fully. 5- Secure a zone where you can leave your mess behind and big enough to be able to open several books on the table. From Day 0 I didn't know what to look up for and what resources to study. After googling a few keywords it came obvious to buy the MERM (13th edition). I tabbed the pages I needed and used the reference appendixes like crazy. I cruised through various chapters and have established a roadmap. Instead of studying the MERM, I instead took a bottom-up approach diving straight away into practice pbs. I was learning by doing. Among those below is what I followed in order over 4/5 months straight: 0- The MERM - get a sense of what is in there. Tab the chapters and pages you need overtime and appendixes you will get back often especially the steam tables. 1- Mechanical PE Exam Prep (Youtube and Udemy videos, and few 1 on 1 calls) extremely useful to go over the fundamentals and practice problems. Use the MERM to refer to the equations. Did them all 3 times or until I had them 90% right - Some overlap with the SMS and NCEES practice pbs. 2- 6 Minutes Solutions (SMS): Very useful to go over the answers in details. Know them on your fingertips. Did them all 3 times or until I had them 90% right. 3- EngineeringProGuide: bought the study guide, practices exams, and reference practice exams problems. Did them all 3 times or until I had them 90% right. Great to know how to use the 4 ASHRAE handbooks. 4- NCEES practice exams (2011 and 2016). Did back and forth all the problems 3 times or until I had them 90% right. 5- MERM practice pbs (selected ones). Focus on those that require more attention such as fundamentals. 6- ASHRAE Handbooks (Fundamentals, HVAC and Systems and Equipment, Refrigeration, Applications). Very useful to know where the chapters and empirical equations are located. You will be tested on those! 7- ASHRAE 90.1 55.1 62.1 Standards. Know what the requirements are for each. 8- NFPA 90 A and 90B codes. Good to cruise over to figure what type of information is inside. 9- Your PERSONAL cheat sheet!: The most important of it all. Write down all the equations you need and store for the quick lookup. 10- Psychrometric Charts and MISC materials. Anything not listed up above that important enough to include. Important to have the Sea Level, 5000ft, low and high temp ones. I saved the last month to actually go over all the material up above in no specific order and prepare for the exam. Did some 8h sessions with a 1h break in between to put me in the real situation, under a TIME PRESSURE. Good to figure out how much your brain can absorb before you get sidetracked and miss focus. Went to the site a week prior to the exam, got to know where the room would be. Before test day, packed in a suitcase of the reference materials, some snacks, water bottles, wrist clock and most importantly: earplugs. Looked again at all the notes the last time and made sure the cheat sheet materials were in a three-ring binder. Rested for the rest of the day. On exam day, the AM session went fine but the PM one was a killer. The NCEES practice exam books are representative enough of what to expect but figured that they were a lot of problems requiring some lookup from the ASHRAE handbooks. Left the exam room in the unknown given the fact that I didn't know was the cutting score would be. I had read online one needs to score 70%. Overall I was confident enough to get close to this score but did some educated guess here and there. The hardest part was the wait before the release 39/40 days after! The major takeaway is that you should go there confident and under cold-blood. The more you can prepare for it, the better for your future. This is a short term pain for a long term gain. Had down times driven by emotions, lack of sleep and stress stacking up but was an indicator that I meant to make it happen. No one wants to live this twice or more with a family and busy schedule. Celebrate hard after you pass to release all the commitment you went through! You can do it! Best to you all and good luck with the exam! Olivier PS: - Pic 1, my 4months daughter checking that the maths are right - Pic 2, a souvenir. Glad I didn't start a collection.

  18. 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
