If I had to estimate, I was able to do about 80%-90% of the problems on the transportation portion of the exam using Dr. Mansour's study materials exclusively. I highly recommend all of Dr. Mansour's study materials, and if you can afford to spend a little more for his online courses, it is definitely worth the investment. Taking the courses with Dr. Mansour was an incredible experience. I can tell that he cares about each and every person in his class. I am forever thankful to my friend for recommending Dr. Mansour's courses to me. -Amazon Review 2015 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have purchased this Transportation book, it is one of the best out there that is related directly to the PE Exam. I have attended Dr. Shahin Mansour Seminars and purchased all his books. Passed my PE without buying all other required references by the Board. This book is comprehensive and worth spending the money, I feel that the books are very in-expensive for what I learned from them, I use them as references now in my daily routine work. Additionally, he has made me a better Engineer in performing my daily job duties as well. This transportation book is one of the best I have seen. Thank you Dr. Mansour for being patient, helpful, honest, sincere, great Author and an outstanding instructor. Sir, You Care! -Amazon Review 2015 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- I appeared for the California P.E. Surveying exam in Spring 2017, and I passed! Yaaaaay!!! I couldn't have done it without Dr. Mansour’s guidance. He is one of the best instructor I have come across. Highly knowledgeable and 100% committed to his students. I am stay at home mom with two little kids. (currently taken a break from full time work) I work from home part time and don’t get to interact with my coworkers. I didn’t know anybody else who was taking this exam and was not motivated to study from home with two little demanding kids. Besides, Surveying was not my cup of tea! I did not study in this country. I bought Dr. Mansour book, practice exams etc. I started to study and learned lot of concepts about surveying. I also started to like this subject. His reference book is easy to follow and very well organized. Dr. Mansour also offers office hours. You could join him live on computer and he solves any questions you may have on the subject. He really goes out of his way to help. He is always reachable, and always replies and solves any question you may have. His teaching style and methods are awesome! I highly recommend his review material, courses. -Amazon Review 2017 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- I am very pleased to share a good news with you that I passed my Surveying exam and now I am a Registered PE in state of California. As you know, I was stuck in Surveying exam and after joining your review course I was able to pass it this time. Definitely, your review course material, example problems and review sessions plus the exam materials you shared time to time helped me to pass my Surveying exam. Once again, I am very thankful to you for keen interest and passion in offering review courses for PE exam. Umer - Fall 2016 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Just wanted to let you know I passed, and to thank you for the great reference manuals you created. They were a HUGE help during both tests. I also want to thank you for the free DVD’s you sent my way, all of which I watched and all of which helped immensely! Finally, thank you for responding to my questions – up until an hour before my seismic exam. You reminded me to just take a guess and move on if a question was too difficult – not to get stuck on just one question for too long – and it worked! Thank you again. Sincerely, David - Fall 2016 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- You will be glad to hear that I passed the PE exam in October. I self-studied your books and I just wanted to thank you again for your help. Omor - Fall 2016 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- I just got my results. I passed the surveying exam. Thank you so much for your help with this subject, I wouldn't have cleared it without your guidance. Hiral - Fall 2016 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank You so much Dr. Shahin! I received a passing for the NCEES 8 hours exam, thank you for the material and lecture from your Construction PM class! Passpe.com resources was helpful in helping me pass the 8 hour PE Civil Construction. Dr. Mansour works hard in providing as much resources to his students as possible. This was my first time taking the exam and I was able to pass by working on all the practice problems and exams that Dr. Mansour provides. Thank You again Dr. Mansour David - Fall 2016 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dr. Mansour, Thanks so much for the class (Transportation PM) and the material. I pass the PE exam! Todd - Fall 2016

  5. I'm just starting out on my journey to pass the PE exam. I have a BSCE and MBA and I'm a project manager with a construction management firm and I've already acquired my PMP. I'm working on getting my Certified Construction Manager (CCM) credential this year and at the end of the summer, start to seriously study for the PE exam. I've been fortunate enough over the past two days to buy the CE Construction Bundle from someone who just passed the April exam and inherit some great breadth practice exams. I'm shooting for October 2018 due to balancing career priorities with my husband.

  21. I just read this on the MN Board website: New PE Exam Specifications Starting in April 2018 NCEES has announced several specification and other changes to exams beginning with the April 2018 administration. The following exams are affected: Architectural Engineering all 3 Electrical and Computer exams; also the “Electrical and Electronics” exam will be renamed “Electronics, Controls, and Communications” Environmental; also it will be reduced from 100 to 80 questions Structural 16-hour; also it will have new design standards Civil will have revised design standards for the Construction and Structural modules. I'm not sure what this means for construction exam but anytime they change the specifications, I imagine that new references are required which mean more money to spend on more material that you don't already have.
  22. Recent EIT Advice

    Hello all! I just created an account but have been lurking on this forum for quite some time. I recently passed the FE exam and am in need of some advice from fellow PE's and/or experienced individuals. I graduated in May of 2016 with a petroleum engineering degree. After graduation I could not find a job in that field, but was able to get an engineering role with an environmental/remediation company. I took my FE exam in April and passed. I have ambitions to become a fully licensed engineer, however I am unsure if going into a field I did not study in undergrad is the right decision. I am learning project management and work on estimating new projects (mainly remediation earthwork projects), so naturally my work experience would imply I should take the civil/construction or environmental PE exam when eligible. If I go this route, how difficult would the PE exam be for someone like me with little to no geotech, structural, and materials studies? How many of you guys/gals changed fields completely post graduation? I go back and forth in my mind about going for my masters in something more aligned with my current position, but I'd prefer to not go into more student loan debt. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  24. Hey Guys, I wanted to ask if any of you have acquired or ever looked into a Graduate Certificate Program? more specifically for Project Management or Construction Management. For those who don't know what it is, Its pretty much a watered down version of a Master's degree but with 4-5 classes instead of the full Master's Degree curriculum. To give you guys a little background, I am a Civil Engineer with a BS and 5 years of experience. I am looking to take my PE next year. Along with my PE, I wanted to pursue getting my PMP and CCM in the future. I wanted to see if you guys think that going for a Graduate Certificate in Project Management or Construction Management is worth the trouble? Here is an example of what I'm talking about: http://www.worldcampus.psu.edu/degrees-and-certificates/project-management-certificate/overview Thanks
  25. CA GC License

    Does anyone have experience with the process of qualifying for and/or obtaining a GC license in either California or elsewhere? I am interested in any advice that may be available. Thanks!
