  1. Just wanted to share, something that helped me a lot to study is the "PE Chemical Reference Handbook", available for free from NCEES: The PE Chemical Reference Handbook is now available for download. It contains charts, formulas, tables, and other information that may help you answer questions on the PE Chemical exam. However, it does not contain all information required to answer every question; theories, conversions, formulas, and definitions that examinees are expected to know have not been included. Log into MyNCEES to download your free copy. The only downside is that you have to print it out...
  2. Hello everyone, I am writing this post about my experience for taking PE examination CBT, because like me at the time of the test there has been a lot of question about the test, and since NCEES has recently converted to CBT for PE exam not much people have taken the exam. So I have recently taken the Professional Engineering Exam for Chemical engineering and I have passed it (took it on OCT 28th). Here is my experience. Reference Handbook: The test was actually easy and solvable without the need for provided the reference handbook, during my test I rarely refereed to it. Plus the file provided was difficult to navigate, not your typical PDF file. Search function shows you the location of your search item and then you have to click on it to see the information (which given in a test of time is very critical). So just like in FE exam, one monitor divided into two sections one for questions and one for the handbook. The Exam: When you first login to the test instructions display that there are 2 sessions morning and afternoon. For me it was 42 questions morning and 38 afternoon, where the morning session was all technical and 90% of afternoon is theoretical and experience based and the time provided for test is more than enough. One thing to keep an eye for it is the time there will be no flag/notice to indicates the end of morning session so you could spend all 8 hours at one section. Also recently NCEES has added a new type of questions, drag and drop fill the plank and so on, however I have only in countered 2 questions of this type and the reset are normal multiple choice questions. Now the difficulty of the exam questions I would say very easy to easy, I have put on more effort to study for the exam than it is required for it ( I have started studying from July a total of 4 months). A good source to study from if the practice exam provided at NCEES website, i have also take PPI2Pass material, it was a good practice for your understanding however it is far more difficult than the exam, but it will refresh your memory. Generally most of exam questions you figure out the way of solving it from the first sentence.One thing I did which is I have divided the exam equally for each section however by the end of the afternoon section I have wished if i have given more time for morning session ( I got an hour left). I have encountered only one question that I decided to spend the last 30 min of the exam trying to solve it, however I was not lucky. The Result: After I have taken the exam I was anxious about exam result, they say 7 to 10 days however I have received my result after 3 days. So good luck on your exam and hopefully this post will set many tester at ease, and assist you for the test.

    Chemical exam

    Fellow ChemEs - how did you feel about the exam? Morning session compared to afternoon?
  4. I am going to be taking the PE Chemical exam in April 2017. The closest test center to me is in the San Diego Area, and I need to book a hotel room. 1. I was wondering if anyone had an idea of where in San Diego the test center is? Maybe based on exam locations in the past? 2. Do all the disciplines share a test center, or are they different? Thank you,

  7. Hey All, Just got my Chemical PE in California (yeah!). I am very stoked. While this is obviously cool for bragging rights and looking good to employers, what can I use the actual stamp/title for? I know that Civil, Mechanical, and Electrical Engineers stamp designs. Most process design stuff/ P&IDs fall under industrial exemption, so no stamp needed. What mileage can I get out of my stamp? Either way, happy I got it for personal pride/resume boosting, but not sure what's next. Thanks! Vepr
  8. Hey everyone! I am doing a project for one of my high school engineering classes, and am required to interview an engineer in this field. I don't really know any engineers personally, so if anyone would like to answer some questions, I'd be one happy man! • What is your specific degree in? • What is your place of employment? • Please describe your engineering field. • What is your current job title? • Please describe your particular job and duties. • What is your average work schedule? • Starting with high school, describe your educational background chronologically. • If you had it to do over, related to your career or education, would you do anything differently? • What advice would you give to me as someone interested in pursuing a career path similar to yours? It doesn't have to be these questions, just anything that relates to your field / job would work fine, and help tremendously! Thank you! Grant
