  1. 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.
  2. 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

  7. I passed my exam on my second attempt. I attribute my exam failure on the first attempt to being unorganized, nervousness, and procrastination. I learned my lessons from my failure and adjusted. This is the best advice I can give to those of you who are studying for the upcoming PE exam: If you have a hard time motivating yourself to study, take a live webinar review course that forces you to attend at certain times. Get good at taking an exam. Take as many timed exams in a mock-exam environment as you can. Be set up as closely to exam day as possible - use a pencil and bubble sheet. Do not look at the material beforehand. Build your own “Quick Reference Guide” binder. I put together my own reference guide that contained material from all the outlined test material. I also had a section for conversions. Each section had a summary of formulas and hand written step by step outlines on how to do certain types of problems. Have all the specified references and flag important chapters or pages. Don’t over flag or you’ll never find what you’re looking for because there’s too many flags. If you’ve borrowed material from your colleagues, remake the flags, bookmarks, or notes in your own hand writing. It’s a lot easier to read your own handwriting when you’re under the gun. If you are taking a review course, do all the practice problems. Seriously. I took EET Structural and there’s hundreds of practice problems. I. Did. Them. All. If your review material didn’t come with or have good indexes, make your own. If the pages weren’t numbered, number them yourself. It’s hard not to be nervous when you take a big exam, especially when you want to pass and not feel like a failure in your office. Do your best not to worry what people will think about you if you fail. If you fail, you will adjust and overcome. Buy a seat cushion for your exam day chair. Seriously. You will thank me. While taking the exam, if you’re stuck on a question or find yourself endlessly flipping around looking for answers, skip it. That question will be in the back of your mind while you continue and it will probably eventually come to you. I wasted way too much of my exam time flipping around trying to find something.
  8. Hello everyone, I have passed the PE exam and my current state of residence is Texas. Based on TSPE (Texas Society of Professional Engineers), I am now eligible to be licensed. I have a PhD from a school in the US, however my bachelor's and master's are from foreign institutions. I also have official translations of my degrees and transcripts, sealed. Now from similar cases my friends from my country shared, in Texas if one applies through the state board (rather than NCEES), one can email or include a copy of his/her official translations and send over to the board and that is sufficient for the Board to consider it legit. However, moving to another state, as I heard, requires going through NCEES verification process and NCEES is pretty strict about receiving the items directly from the institution and does not accept receiving them from the applicant. The other problem is that the foreign institutes I have my degrees from are pretty clumsy in sending the materials abroad and it would be best if I am present there to make this happen smoothly. I am considering a number of job offers in different states and am leaning towards moving to California. I know that I probably do not have to take the PE exam again and this counts for the 8-hour exam in CA. I also understand, I have to take the seismic and surveying exam as well to be qualified for a California PE. So it looks like another year or so to be qualified for the California PE. So, at the time being, I am not quite sure which approach would be better for me: 1- Apply for my Texas PE license, and when moved to CA follow the procedure there. The question here is that does CA accepts me sending my official transcripts to the board, similar to how they do it in Texas, or should it go through NCEES' more strict process? 2- Wait until I pass the rest of the exams, and then submit my application in CA and see how it goes. The question here would be if CA needs another set of reference letters, or if my current reference letters in TSPE letterhead would be acceptable by CA. 3- Just go through the NCEES process and as much as cumbersome it looks, try to do it the NCEES way and save headaches in the future? Any helps will be appreciated.
  9. 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.

  11. This thread is specific to the Oct 2018 ENVIRONMENTAL PE Exam. *** DO NOT discuss specifics (exam questions, answers, problems, or solutions) of the Oct 2018 Environmental PE Exam. *** Some hindsight questions for you: As soon as you walked out of the exam room at 5 PM, how did you think you performed compared to how you thought you would prior to walking into the exam room? Did your results confirm what you felt walking out of the exam room? Did they confirm how you felt before you took the exam? After I finished for the day, I felt extremely well prepared with the three reference materials I studied with and brought into the room. I brought only a backpack with the three references, and a clear gallon-sized plastic bag of toiletries/necessities (one ruler, one TI-30X (I loathe it), floss, mouthwash, chocolates, tissues, earplugs, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, tampons, eyeglass wipes, etc.) and I just found out I passed yesterday. I was able to do a first pass on both the morning and afternoon sessions in <1 hour, then did a second pass in another ~1.5 hour, then a third, detailed review for the remaining ~1.5 hour. Overall, after the exam was completed, I felt extremely confident. Which is NOT how I felt walking into the exam room that morning -- I thought I was screwed. What about you?

  17. 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!

  23. 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!
  24. I've been searching these engineering forums trying to find someone who has shared their experience preparing for the Structural PE April 2018 and have been unsuccessful ...
