One of the questions I get asked the most from students is: “Zach, how many Months do I need to study to pass the PE exam?” Each and every person has their own individual needs based on industry experience, math background, and test taking skills. This means that it is close to impossible to say exactly how many months you, in particular, would need to study to pass. But, what I can tell you, is what the successful engineers that DO pass have in common with their studying habits and how long they prepared for. We polled our April 2017 students and asked: “How many Months did you Study for the Electrical PE Exam?” Want to see how the successful engineers that passed the PE exam answered? Take a look at the pie graph below and see if you can guess how many months correspond to each percentage and slice. You can click on the pie graph when you are ready to see the answer or you can just click on the following link: Electrical PE Review - What do Successful Engineers that Pass the PE Exam have in Common? Knowledge is power. That's why it's so important to identify what is working as a whole so that we can adopt the study habits that passing engineers share in common to greatly improve our probability of passing the PE exam. Your goal should be to sign up for the PE exam, put in your time studying, pass the exam, and then move on with both your professional and personal life. Of course, the number of months leading up to the exam doesn’t really matter if you aren’t putting in the hours each week. So to compare, next week we will be diving deeper and looking at the results of how the total number of hours spent studying per week also affects success rate. See you next week! Zach Stone, P.E.
