  1. COVID-19 Risk-Free Enrollment At School of PE, we understand that there are currently many uncertainties in our lives due to COVID-19 concerns. The NCEES pencil-and-paper exams for PE and SE scheduled for October 2020 are no exception. NCEES is currently still accepting registrations for the October exams, and we have not received any indication that they will be cancelling the exams. However, not knowing what will happen as it gets closer to the exam date, you may understandably have concerns regarding our review courses. We respect your concerns and will help our students to the best of our ability in this difficult time for all of us. Our goal, as always, is to help you prepare for and pass the exam.

  3. Many exam candidates find themselves cramming at the last minute and overlooking important concepts, which can lead to test anxiety, which can then result in poor performance on the FE and PE exams. One resource that candidates don’t take advantage of often enough is tutoring—something that is sometimes only thought of for school-aged children and early career college students. In some instances, there are negative connotations associated with tutoring. Students may feel that they are viewed as needing help or falling behind. However, specialized one-on-one tutoring for the FE and PE exams is a valuable resource through which candidates can greatly benefit. Tutoring helps strengthen the comprehension of the subject matter and important exam concepts, boost confidence, and builds important learning skills and test-taking strategies. Read More
  4. I am preparing for this October's SE lateral exam. NCEES lists the AISC Seismic Manual (2nd ed.) as the reference. I find that the 3rd ed. is available. Does anyone know if it is okay to use the latest edition for the exam? I really don't want to buy an outdated book. Thanks!

    SE Results

    Has anyone received their SE results yet? Thought it would be two weeks after but still nothing
  11. Anyone have experience of taking the SE in Wisconsin? How was the experience? Lots of people there? ect..
  12. Anyone here taking PPI SE course right now? I'm thinking about possibly taking it after April, in preparation for the October Exam, but I had a bad experience with the PE exam course (civil/structural). For the SE its an entirely different professor ( or professors) teaching it so I was hoping maybe someone was taking this exam. Thanks for any comments.
  13. New! Step-by-Step Problem Solving for the SE Depth Building Exams The Afternoon Depth modules of the Structural Engineering (SE) exam consist of four essay problems that must be answered in four hours. For many, they are the most difficult questions on an already challenging exam—in fact, one “unacceptable” answer could be the difference between passing and failing. In these videos, follow along as SE exam expert Andy Lin, PE, SE provides step-by-step solutions and guidance on solving problems you’re likely to encounter on the afternoon depth exams. Each Video Includes: Step-by-step analysis and solution of an exam-like depth practice problem Demonstration of successful problem solving techniques Time management strategies SE exam information and advice Topics Include: Lateral Forces (Buildings) – General Analysis Lateral Forces (Buildings) – Steel Structure Vertical Forces (Buildings) – Steel Structure
  14. Time to resurrect this topic again. I reside and practice in the state of Florida. I just passed the SE exam I would like to slap SE at the end of my name but I am a bit hesitant because Florida doesn't recognize the SE. Would it be appropriate for me to use the SE title if I am registered in a state with a roster designation? My company does do some work in states that have roster designations but not in the states with the "full practice act". I really don't want to pay Hawaii or Illinois just to put SE at the end of my name since I doubt that I will ever practice there. For those that are interested. Here is a link to how the different states treat the SE:
  15. I've had people PM asking what my strategy was for passing the SE, so I figured I'd post what I did and a few key books I used to pass both the Vertical Building and Lateral Building tests on my first try. First, I would like to point out I found this test extremely difficult. I was already planning my next attempt at the exam because I left the exam feeling very discouraged. So, don't count yourself out if you leave the exam not feeling confident. Anyways my strategy was as follows: 1. I decided to take the Structural PE first. I think this may have been unnecessary, but it helped me ease into how the NCEES tests operate. I found it to be much easier and less tricky than the SE. If nothing else it was a good confidence booster. 2. Since I decided to take both Vertical and Lateral at the same I felt like I needed structure to help keep me on track, so I ended up taking a class. I choose EET, but I had some friends who also did well using both School of PE and PPI. Really, I think any class would have worked since for me it was more about keeping myself accountable and managing my schedule. I also choose the on-demand option as it was a bit more flexible than the live classes. 3. I started studying in late July. This consisted of a mixture of watching the class lectures and working problems. I tried to do at least 2 hours after work every day and 4 each Saturday and Sunday. This didn't always happen as I got married and spent two weeks in Alaska, but I tried to stick to as much as I could. Towards the end I was doing closer to 3 each weekday and 5 or 6 each Saturday and Sunday. The best advice I can give about studying is be completely done reviewing and learning material about a month before the exam. I spent that last month doing nothing but problems. In that last month I worked 4 different full practice exams that included both vertical and lateral. When I worked these exams, I timed myself and tried to simulate the actual exam conditions as close as possible. I think this really helped me fine tune my testing strategy and pin point the areas I was weak. 4. For the AM portions I used your standard test strategy where I answered the easiest problems first and worked my way up in difficulty since they are all weighted the same. For the AM portion on both days I barely finished with enough time and had to make educated guesses on probably 5 or 6 questions on both days. These questions were tricky, and the answer choices frequently had common mistakes as well as intermediate step answers as options. I found the PM portion to be much more straightforward. For the PM portion I used a little different strategy. I did not seek out the easier problems first. I worked them in the order they came. When I began I set my timer for 45 minutes (would be different if you were doing bridges). No matter how far I was in a problem when I hit the 45-minute mark I stopped trying to work the problem and I used the remaining 15 minutes to complete the rest of the questions by writing theory and code references. This strategy worked so well that I finished with about 45 extra minutes. I used that remaining time to go back and work sections of problems I had only put theory, back check problems, and add additional code references. I did this because based on conversations with co-workers you can pass problems with almost just theory and code references alone, but leaving a problem blank or unfinished is almost certain to get you an unacceptable. My understanding is one unacceptable on the afternoon portion will cause you to fail the exam. 5. Absolutely GET ALL the codes NCEES references and make sure they are the correct edition. I was told by a friend they will intentionally ask questions about sections that have changed between editions not to mention your code references will be wrong for the PM portion. Also, I found the following additional books to be helpful: 2012 Design of Reinforced Masonry Structures (7th Edition) Design of Wood Structures-ASD/LRFD / Edition 7 Bridge Problems for the Structural Engineering (SE) Exam SEAOC Seismic Design Manual Series Both PPI's SE Practice Exams and Their Structural Engineering Reference Manual The NCEES Practice Exam I used other books and references as well, but those really stood out to me. I hope this information helps others out there tackle this exam. It's a beast so don't get discouraged. Good luck everyone!

  18. Hey guys, Does anybody out there have a physical copy of the 2012 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual Volume 1: Code Application Examples they'd be willing to sell? It appears that edition is out of printing and I can't seem to find a hard copy of it anywhere online. Since California is on the 2015 IBC it looks like they're phasing out any design manual referencing the 2012 IBC. I would prefer to keep in line with 2012 IBC in my studies for the 2017 October SE Lateral Buildings exam since that's the code the exam will be referencing. Shoot me a PM if you can help out.
  19. maybe this is best for the repeat testers: Anyone looking to go halfsies on a course? now that the specs are changing again, we could sure use all the help we can get. including sharing the required codes :-)
  20. Gentleman, April 2017 PE results are out. How much longer would we say for SE results to be released? Does anyone have any historical data to make a determination based on trend? I understand a lot of you are banking on mid-June. Also, I have seen that results are usually released around a week or so after the SE scoring workshop, but I have not seen the June Licensure Exchange published yet (see below for link) so that date is unknown at this point.
