  1. I have signed up for the October 2017 Mechanical engineering PE exam for machine design and materials and I am about to start my studies. I have viewed the new NCEES exam specifications (starting April 2017) and it does NOT include thermo/HVAC. Should I be skipping these types of questions from my study materials? I.e. just skip over those problems in the 6 minute solutions textbook as well as Lindeburg question workbook supporting the MERM? New test specification starting April 2017 found here I'd appreciate some feedback from people who took the April 2017 exam and if they left thermodynamics problems and HVAC problems for studying? What about psychometric tables? Anything involving steam tables? I'd like to know explicitly what information I can omit from studying due to the redesign in the test. Thank you!!!
  2. I have decided to place my cheat sheets (word document) on the below link as a free download. Please feel free to download the word documents and customize the documents to suit your needs. You can also upload your own version of your cheat sheet to the google drive in order to share with others. Good luck on the studying and please feel free to email if you have any questions on any other product or if you see an error on the cheat sheets. Link:
  3. Hi All, I'm not a huge fan of taking classes to study for things, especially standardized exams. I feel like the most effective solution is to do as many sample problems as possible that are as similar to the exam as possible, that cover all subject areas. Some questions: 1.) Does anyone know of any good resources for sample exam problems? 2.) NCEES appears to have a single sample exam for the civil breadth + structural depth, do you know where we can find more? Are there different versions? 3.) My boss has a sample exam from NCEES, copyrighted in 2014 (I think this is the same as the current sample exam), does anyone have any older/alternate NCEES practice exams? 4.) Does anyone know of any good study resources in addition to sample exams? Thanks! Regards, Spencer
  4. At work I've been tasked with running a variety of calculations on a pre-existing sand-cast aluminum pole, but I cannot for the life of me find the material properties for the alloy the manufacturer is using. It's an 356.0-F Aluminum pole, and the only information I can dig up is Yield and Tensile strength, which is certainly a start, but I need Compressive strength, shear strength, and bearing strength to complete the calculations I'm supposed to do. Does anyone have any idea where to find this information? My colleagues and I are hesitant to purchase ASTM B26, since we are not sure if it actually has the information we need. If anyone has any suggestions, or can confirm that the specification would have the relevant information, I'd greatly appreciate it!
  5. Hello all, I've been approved for the Oct PE Mechanical exam and I'm planning on taking the mechanical systems and materials afternoon depth. My first goal is to determine what references I should bring on exam day, so I can study directly from those over the next few months. While I see many topics about what resources to bring, I don't see any good replies that are specifically for the *mechanical systems and materials* test. Sorry if I'm just blind :-) Has any one taken this depth test? What books/resources did you bring and what did you actually use? Many thanks!
  6. Look for support, ideas, groups to help prep for oct MET PE in California
  7. 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
