  2. Hi all! Just a quick hello and maybe some advise. I am 7 years out of undergrad and have been studying from Lindeburg's FE Civil Review Manual. I did not pass the first attempt, or second or third and I am back at it again now. My job it is on the line and I have to pass the test by July of 2018. I plan to take the test again in January 2018. I cannot take it before due to NCEES restrictions. Does anyone have an online course they recommend? I took the test back on July and the test has change again, 10% of the test is NOT a multiple-choice questions. It has alternative item types, like: Multiple correct—allows examinees to select multiple answers Point and click—requires examinees to click on part of a graphic to answer Drag and drop—requires examinees to click on and drag items to match, sort, rank, or label Fill in the blank—provides a space for examinees to enter a response to the question I am not sure which online course has updated their study guide since July of 2017. Any recommendations? Diana

  8. I am looking to take the PE (Power) Exam in October and am looking for online review course recommendations. I'm leaning toward doing a live online course since it would most effectively get me into a routine since I would want to be in attendance at a set time each week. But I know one drawback of this is you cannot skip through material if you know it won't be very useful to you (ex: instructor answers a question on a topic you already have mastered). So, I don't necessarily have to do live online. Also, I don't plan to fail the exam, but having a guarantee would be nice. I've already looked at the following: Test Masters School of PE PPI GA Tech The Test Masters and School of PE seem too condensed for the live online courses. One month just seems too short. The GA Tech course is cheaper than the others and seems like a lot of people have used it and like it, but how many hours of lectures is it? I didn't see that on the course site. The PPI live online course spans a little over two months which seems good, and comes with more materials than the others, but I'm not sure of the quality of the course itself. I took the PPI FE course and wasn't too impressed with it, but admittedly it was during the revamping of the FE exams themselves to the more discipline specific ones (still, I think it could have been much better), so I'm not sure what their typical courses are like under normal conditions. Which review course do you like and why? What are your experiences with Live Online vs watching lectures on demand? How much value did you get out of the course you took? Any other suggestions you would have for me and what I'm looking for? Thanks
  9. Hi, Has anyone taken either School of PE or PPI2PASS review courses for Power? If so, can you share your opinion here? Thank you in advance.
  10. Dr. Indranil Goswami’s Civil PE Review Course for the April 2016 exam will start Tuesday, February 2, 2016. All lectures are taught by Dr. Indranil Goswami, who has taught the PE Review for nearly 15 years. Course delivery is via live online WEBINARS. The meeting time is Tuesdays and Thursdays 6 pm – 9 pm Eastern Time (EST). Lectures are recorded and archived on Google Plus. Lecture videos are uploaded to Google Plus within 3 hours of completion of the live lecture. Never miss a lecture! Approximately 600 pages of course notes (PDF) are shared with students upon registration. With early registration, you can start your personal review ahead of the course start. Attendees also receive approximately 300 practice problems (PDF). These are organized into 10 sets – one AM and one PM set for each subject. Following the completion of lecture 20, attendees will be sent a full (80 question) practice exam. The first 10 lectures (out of 21) will be devoted to AM (breadth) topics, and the following 10 lectures will be devoted to the 5 depth areas. Emphasis will be on problem solving in all the sessions. Approximately 20 problems will be discussed in a typical 3-hour session. Lecture 21 will serve as a capstone review session where ‘last minute’ questions from all 5 subject areas will be discussed. The cost to enroll in the 63-hour course is $850, which can be lowered by $100 if registration is completed early. The anticipated start date is February 2, 2016. The PE exam is April 15, 2016. The deadline for early registration is December 15, 2015. Candidates who are unsuccessful in the PE exam (the one administered immediately following the conclusion of the review sessions) are welcome to attend the next course sessions at no charge. CONTACT For more information, or to request an enrolment form, contact Dr. Indranil Goswami at

  12. I searched and didn't see a topic like this that was comprehensive- sorry if I missed it. I am 10 years out of undergrad and have been studying from Lindeburg's FE Civil Review Manual. I did not pass the first attempt, and I am back at it again now. I plan to take it again at the end of August. Does anyone have a crash course resource they recommend? I think I would benefit from videos as opposed to reading through more books. Thanks!

  14. The CIVIL PE Exam just went through a significant reorganization effective from the upcoming April 2015 exam. The breadth exam shifted focus away from some areas. Each depth area syllabus has also changed significantly. Some standards have been added. Others have been updated to different versions. In response to these changes, the content and organization of the PE Review Course taught by Dr. Indranil Goswami is going through a major redesign. The course is still going to be delivered via online webinars and will have a total contact time of 63 hours (21 sessions at 3 hours each) over 10 ½ weeks (2 sessions per week). However, the order of lectures will be reshuffled. The course will start February 3rd, 2015. Early bird deadline ($100 off) for those who register by December 18, 2014. The regular fee is $850. Contact for detailed information. Also, the 3rd edition of the All In One Civil PE book is being worked on right now and will be submitted to the publisher by January 2015. The anticipated publication date for the 3rd edition is June/July 2015. The recent changes to the PE exam syllabus will be reflected in the additions and edits to this book. Even though the 3rd edition will not be available for those taking the exam in April, the edits/additions will be reflected in the course notes, which will be revised/reorganized significantly.
  15. This question is for those of you who are taking the Hiner course. I am working on the latest book and trying to figure out Drag Force Diagrams. My question is regarding Problem #17, Page 2-41, the solution for question 5 shows a drag force diagram. For Wall line A, it shows the Drag force to be Fd = (262 plf)(20')=5240 lbs. On the solution to the next problem, (page 2-43) it shows a drag force diagram on Wall Line 1. Fd= (69 plf)(7')-(343 plf)(7')=-1920 lbs max. My question is, why is the wall shear not subtracted from the roof shear on the solution for 2-41? I have the same question regarding problem 9.8 in the sample problems on the back. It gives a solution of 4800 lbs but does not subtract the roof shear. What am I missing here? Thanks in advance for your response. Miguel
  16. Can anyone recommend a CA Civil Survey Review Course for someone that has never performed a survey in his/her life? I am an SE looking to take the survey exam in the near future. Any recommendations and things to avoid etc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
