  1. Failed FE Exam Diagnotic

    Guys, How close do you think I was to passing? It seems like I was near or above the avg passing score in sections 5 and 10 thru 18. It looks like the softer subjects killed me which is really frustrating such as computational tools and ethics. Anyone have a good plan of attack for passing this the next time?
  2. In case you missed it, in addition to the new exam specifications this year NCEES® also released an updated edition of their official practice exam for the Electrical Power PE exam. Scared yet? Don't be. The main takeaway is that surprisingly there are only 7 new questions on the new practice exam, the rest are exactly the same. In addition, some of the exam subjects that were removed on the new exam specifications are still on the new practice exam. This means you need to be prepared and ready to solve these types of problems even though they are no longer on the updated specs, so be careful here. Also, each of the new 7 questions that appear in the updated NCEES® practice exam are NOT any of the new subjects that were added to the new exam specifications. What does this all mean? Well, I think it supports my hunch that the new subjects are areas that were previously being tested on and NCEES® is trying to be more clear about their expectations by updating the exam specifications. At this point, if you are taking the PE exam then you should be asking yourself these following questions if you want to be prepared: Should I buy the new $39.95 NCEES® practice exam if I already have the older practice exam? What are the subjects of the new questions on the updated practice exam? What subjects did the new questions replace that were on the older practice exam? What subjects are still on the new practice exam that have been removed from the newer exam specifications? Is there any other insight that can be gained by comparing the new practice exam to the new specs? Does this mean the PE exam is harder? We did the research for you and just published a new article to address all of the above and more. You can read the full length article here: Electrical PE Review - New 2018 NCEES Practice Exam for the Electrical Power PE Exam As always, if you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer you.
  3. PE Electrical Power Study Material Below is great material to help you study for and pass the Power PE Exam. I took the exam in April 2016 for the first time and passed. I used items #1, #2, #4, and #8 during the exam. I also used a Casio FX-115ES Plus (not the one below) during the exam. Items #3, #5, and #6 are great practice problems. In my opinion, #5 and #6 are exam like questions while #3 tests your basic knowledge of the material. Strike = no longer available. For sale: 1.

  5. As you may know, NCEES has changed their Power PE outline. I have outlined the changes below. I think the biggest change is the increase in possible Protection problems from 8 to 13. New NCEES Outline: https://ncees.org/wp-content/uploads/Power-April-2018.pdf 1. Measurement & Instrumentation: Reduced the number of problems from 6 problems to 4 problems. Removed VOM metering and Wattmeters as a subtopic. 2. Applications: Changed topic name from Special Applications to Applications. Same number of problems. Added lighting energy efficiency and grounding as subtopics. 3. Codes and Standards: Increased from 10 problems to 12 problems. Added Hazardous area classification (NFPA 497, 499, 30B) 4. Circuits - Analysis: Same number of problems. Added single phase circuits, DC circuits and single-line diagrams as subtopics. 5. Circuits - Devices & Power Electronic Circuits: Same number of problems. Added converters and ladder logic as subtopics. 6. Induction and Synchronous Machines: Changed topic name from Rotating Machines. Decreased from 10 problems to 8 problems. Added subtopic electrical machine theory and removed subtopic speed-torque characteristics. 7. Electric Power Devices: Changed topic name from Electromagnetic Devices. Added subtopic Capacitors. Increased from 6 to 8 problems. 8. Power System Analysis: Changed topic name by combining two these two separate topics, System Analysis and Power System Performance. Decreased from 16 problems to 11 problems. Moved grounding from this topic to Applications. Removed subtopic load sharing parallel generators or transformers. 9. Protection: Changed from 8 questions to 13 questions. Added more specifics to subtopic protective relaying, which includes differential, distance, undervoltage and pilot.

  7. I major in Architectural Engineering in South Korea. But I got interested in double major so I abandoned ABET 2yrs ago. I'm having a hard time to proceed NCEES credential evaluation. NCEES said foreign engineering student must have these: A. 32 college semester credit hours of higher mathematics and basic sciences B. 16 college semester credit hours in a general education component that complements the technical content of the curriculum C. 48 college semester credit hours of engineering science and engineering design Courses shall be taught within the college/faculty of engineering and shall have their roots in mathematics and basic sciences I have lack of time in engineering design courses because of double major. So I want to ask how much likely no ABET holders can get approved by NCEES as an applicable FE tester. Will there be any states suitable for my academic background?

  10. 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 http://ncees.org/wp-content/uploads/PE-Mech_Machine-Apr-2017.pdf. 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!!!
  11. As stated in NCEES website, the exam spec has been changed. for Instance for "Mechanical: Machine Design and Materials" there is no more thermo or fuild questions. Those who took the exam in April 2017, can you please confirm that there was no such those questions? Thank you all Matt

  13. Hello Everyone! New here, but giving back to this forum just as it gave something to me. Resources and hope! I recently moved to the from Canada with a few years of experience in my hands after graduating as an Electrical Engineering candidate in the summer of 2013. While I hadn't been out of school for long, I still lost all hope of being in a school/study environment again and was worried about this FE Electrical and Computer CBT based exam. After looking at resources and forums I decided to start my studying. I moved here in April and with wanting to take my PE Power exam in the April of 2017, I decided to dedicate some time this year (2016) to study and try and pass the FE. So I bought the FE Electrical and Computer textbook by Lindeburg on Amazon for 50-ish $ and started studying by the end of July. I followed the schedule it says and tried to do one chapter a day, and sometimes three-four on weekends. Lindeburg suggests that you could start the course 45 days ahead of the exam and complete all 45 chapters without rest days and pass the exam the next day. I think this is pretty accurate since the exam is not very tough. Along with the textbook, I tried to learn where all the units and equations are in the FE Reference book which is the exact same book given to you on the computer in the exam. I also watched Raiya Energy Academy's Youtube videos online and used it for different questions and examples. I also found some online assessments that started a timer and told you how you did. And finally I made sure to really practice with my calculator and use the special functions like complex conversion, matrices, vectors, equation solving, computer numbering formats, and boolean logic. This last part is really important because doing all these in your calculator, saves you time, which gives you more minutes in the end for harder problems or for reviewing. After I was done going through the book, I decided to book the exam three weeks from finishing the book, and spend these weeks looking at the book and the reference manual again, but this time just doing the problems. I am so glad I did the steps above, because after I did the exam on a Friday, I found out I passed online the next Wednesday. Hope this helps you!
  14. Hello Everyone! After posting my FE exam prep from October 2016 found here: I decided to go strong and work towards my PE Power. Like I mentioned before, I already had the required 4 years of work experience between both Canada and the US, so I decided to apply for the PE Exam and write it in the coming April 2017. I would say, from talking with coworkers, peers, and just overall looking at all the material available it was really intimidating and overwhelming at first. I was very nervous about this exam from the get-go even after studying for the FE and passing it. Having done the FE just recently should help, is what I kept hearing from everyone, but of course I was finding it hard to connect the dots between the FE and the PE exams. Primarily, because the FE really is very basic level understanding of electrical engineering (First and Second year course material from University) whereas the PE is more like the third and fourth year materials + codebooks. In any case, I didn't have a great plan of studying for this like I did for the FE. With the FE I just took the reference material and followed their plans. With the PE, I asked around at work for what was available, and luckily there were a couple folks that had 5-6 different NCEES PE Power Practice Exam and Camara's booklets that combined had over a 1000 problems. I also printed out the NEC 2017, the NESC 2012, the NFPA 70 2017, the ANSI Device Numbers, and had a copy of the EPRM by John Camara. This last book was what I used to start my prep. Similar to the FE prep, I first went through the EPRM entirely and thoroughly. Then I went through a whole bunch of videos on youtube related to Power problems, notable mention Raiya Energy Academy. Again, while I don't always agree with Raiya's solutions, her problems and walk throughs are worth looking into. She gets the steps right 99 percent of the time, but the answer might be wrong in some cases. She corrects herself in most cases. After I finished the EPRM book, I went through the entire NEC 2017 code book and sticky tabbed most of the important and often used artices, (See Raiya's video on Must Know NEC Articles). I have to admit, you are not going to remember where each article is. So heavily rely on the index pages of these code books in the end of the books. After the NEC, I went through the NESC codebook and the NFPA codebooks fairly quickly in order to get the gist of the materials. The last four weeks before the exam, all I did was problems problems problems. I have to admit, after I did the exam, I had a sense of relief, it was either from finishing a long 9.5 hours day (including breaks) or I was fairly confident in what I had answered were correct. For anyone thinking that there isn't enough time in the exam, if you prepared as much as I did, and I think you should, then you should have enough time to write the exam and still have 45 minutes in the end to check everything. I had finished checking and still left a half an hour earlier. Total time taken to study: Once I passed the FE, and got my approval that I had been registered for the PE exam in February, I started studying Mid February. From Mid-Feb to April 19th, I spent 8 weeks studying. Weekends were the busiest (6-8 hours each day) and then 3-4 weeknights of one hour each. Prep Prep Prep, is all I can say. I can usually gauge whether or not one would need to study as much or not for a certain exam, however, both before and even after writing the PE exam, I have to say you must put in your hours to study. It is not that hard, but it is not trivial. So I passed, and the results came out exactly 1 Month and 5 days later. Good luck to Oct 2017s and future PEs.
  15. April 2017 PE Results Are Out

    Gentleman, April 2017 PE results are out. How much longer would we say for SE results to be released? Does anyone have any historical data to make a determination based on trend? I understand a lot of you are banking on mid-June. Also, I have seen that results are usually released around a week or so after the SE scoring workshop, but I have not seen the June Licensure Exchange published yet (see below for link) so that date is unknown at this point. http://ncees.org/category/news/lex/
  16. Can anyone have any idea why I don't get the NCEES answer for this problem?Actual answer is 91.428 psi thanks
  17. I have the following for sale: -NCEES PE Electrical and Computer Engineering: Power Practice Exam (Printed Nov 2014) - Like New.

  18. Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I am selling my PE exam prep materials for the Mechanical HVAC exam. These are the only materials I studied with and the only references I brought with me to the exam. Using only these, I passed the October 2016 exam on my first try! Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam, 13th edition by Lindeburg ($250) Practice Problems for the Mechanical Engineering PE Exam, 13th edition by Lindeburg ($85) PE Mechanical Engineering: HVAC and Refrigeration Practice Exam by NCEES ($30) Six-Minute Solutions for Mechanical PE Exam HVAC and Refrigeration Problems, 2nd edition by Elder ($65) I bought these materials new and did not write in any of them - so they are in "like new" condition. I have photos ready to send, if interested. I will sell individually for prices listed (add $10 for shipping each) - or will sell as a set for $400, including shipping. Prices are firm and I prefer to use PayPal. I almost don't want to sell these because they remind me of my triumph over the behemoth that is the PE exam :-) but I know they could be helping someone else. Thanks, Ryan
  19. I am selling the below the items that I used when I took the October 2016 PE Power Exam and passed (first time, woohoo!), since I won’t be needing the PE Prep material anymore (all bought new between March and July 2016, lightly used). The Complex Imaginary and NCEES practice Exams were a huge help in getting myself in the rhythm of working problems in 6 minutes or less on average. It also gave me enough problems that I could rotate through exams without getting that feeling of “oh yeah! I remember how the solution read for this last time...” I picked up the other books (Chelapati Power PE Exam Reference and Grainger’s book) after digging around on the web for good references to have during test time. Chelapati was a good reference to get back into the mode of working problems and thinking them through, though the examples in this book aren’t really set up for a 6 minute solution. I did wind up finding answers to a couple specific problems in this book during the exam. Lastly, I am also selling my copy of Power System Analysis by Grainger and Stevenson because it is more theoretical than I need for the day-to-day work at my job. I came to several answers on the exam that I would have otherwise missed by looking up topics in this book; particularly for sequence components, transmission lines, and the theory behind short circuit analysis. ** Notice: this is an ‘international’, paperback copy ** Contents with links to the correct versions of the books: NCEES Power Practice Exam Complex Imaginary Vol 1-4 (single book) Chelapati PE Exam Reference Power System Analysis; Grainger, Stevenson (paperback international) I am asking $200 + shipping for the whole set. Items shipped from the great state of Oklahoma (Tulsa) after payment is received and/or check has cleared. I accept: PayPal, check, or money order. I can also provide photos of the books to verify quality, edition, etc.; just PM me. For anyone who is interested, the other materials I reference during the exam that I am hanging onto as they were great to have (or were borrowed): 2014 NEC Handbook NFPA 70E 2012 NESC Electrical Machines, Drives and Power Systems by Wildi My 3” Binder full of printouts, handouts, and the hundreds of problems I worked.

  22. NCEES ME TF 507

    I'm running through the latest NCEES Mechanical Thermal Fluids Sample Problems and #507 has got me stumped on where they got the solution for Nusselt Equation... Maybe I'm problem'ed out or something, but I tried to duplicate the answer with my own notes, MERM, NCEES Ref...but the equation they used for solution does not match any of the givens for turbulent flow in a cylindrical pipe... Again I may just be overlooking something, but any help would be appreciated!

  24. Hello all, It is getting down to brass tax, and I have been reviewing material for days now. I have a question about voltage drop. in the NCEES sample exam, problem 136, the solution states that the APPROXIMATE Vd=I (X sin theta + R cos theta). I also seen a Voltage drop equation being Vd = |I| (R cos theta - X sin theta), and another being Vd = |I| ((R/1000)*L* cos theta -(X/1000)*L* sin theta). I am just trying to understand the differeneces. The last one I put into my notes a while ago and don't remember the application. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  25. Hello, Clearing out some books. I have a sample FE/EIT exam for sale. Purchased this off of NCEES site to prepare for the FE exam. In pretty good condition.
