  9. Hello everyone, I am writing this post about my experience for taking PE examination CBT, because like me at the time of the test there has been a lot of question about the test, and since NCEES has recently converted to CBT for PE exam not much people have taken the exam. So I have recently taken the Professional Engineering Exam for Chemical engineering and I have passed it (took it on OCT 28th). Here is my experience. Reference Handbook: The test was actually easy and solvable without the need for provided the reference handbook, during my test I rarely refereed to it. Plus the file provided was difficult to navigate, not your typical PDF file. Search function shows you the location of your search item and then you have to click on it to see the information (which given in a test of time is very critical). So just like in FE exam, one monitor divided into two sections one for questions and one for the handbook. The Exam: When you first login to the test instructions display that there are 2 sessions morning and afternoon. For me it was 42 questions morning and 38 afternoon, where the morning session was all technical and 90% of afternoon is theoretical and experience based and the time provided for test is more than enough. One thing to keep an eye for it is the time there will be no flag/notice to indicates the end of morning session so you could spend all 8 hours at one section. Also recently NCEES has added a new type of questions, drag and drop fill the plank and so on, however I have only in countered 2 questions of this type and the reset are normal multiple choice questions. Now the difficulty of the exam questions I would say very easy to easy, I have put on more effort to study for the exam than it is required for it ( I have started studying from July a total of 4 months). A good source to study from if the practice exam provided at NCEES website, i have also take PPI2Pass material, it was a good practice for your understanding however it is far more difficult than the exam, but it will refresh your memory. Generally most of exam questions you figure out the way of solving it from the first sentence.One thing I did which is I have divided the exam equally for each section however by the end of the afternoon section I have wished if i have given more time for morning session ( I got an hour left). I have encountered only one question that I decided to spend the last 30 min of the exam trying to solve it, however I was not lucky. The Result: After I have taken the exam I was anxious about exam result, they say 7 to 10 days however I have received my result after 3 days. So good luck on your exam and hopefully this post will set many tester at ease, and assist you for the test.
  10. I am selling my MERM and Practice exams. I have tons of other free materials I can give away. I took HVAC but I have material for both thermo and HVAC. I'm in NYC/Long Island area. Please reach out to me at ama908@nyu.edu. Thanks.
  11. Hello folks I am working on MyNCEES Records while waiting for Apr 2019 PE Exam result. Like many of you, I keep my finger crossed. I wish good news for all. Going back to the original topic, one of items under MyNCEES Records is Professional References, for which NCEES requires 5 references from PE licensed engineers. It says 'references must be engineers who are currently licensed in US' (see below). Problem is it is not that easy for me to find 5 licensed engineers in my field of work (ME TFS) and wondering if it is absolutely necessary to have PE references. How strict this rule is? Is there any way to get waiver? IMHO, I think this is unnecessary restriction especially when many State Boards do not require recommendors be licensed PE because they understand situation like mine, which is quite common. Reference requirements A total of 5 references are required. Can reflect the character and diversity of your experience Is personally acquainted with your professional reputation Is not related to you by blood, marriage, or adoption For engineering applicants, references must be engineers who are currently licensed in the United States. For surveying applicants, references must be surveyors who are currently licensed in the United States. The 5 most current (by date) references that are showing in your account are the references that are sent to a state board. Transmittal requirements At least 3 of the 5 references must be current to transmit your MyNCEES Record. Professional references are current for 12 months from the date received from the reference.

  13. Hello everybody. I'll be moving to the US next month and I'm trying to figure out whether to use NCEES or WES for credential evaluation or not even get an evaluation at all. I have a bachelor's degree in Electronics Engineering from a Brazilian university. It will be a couple of months after I arrive in the country that I'll have a worker's permit, so I have some time to figure what to do. I've seen lots of posts here talking about NCEES credential evaluation being needed to sit for an FE exam and I get that, but I also found this company called World Education Services (WES) that offers credential evaluations not only for licensing puposes but also for educational, if I want to go to grad school at some point for example. Essentially, I wanna figure what's the best course of action to take. I definitely need to work when I get my permit to help support my fiancee, so grad school is something I don't yet can/want to do. Does anybody know if WES credential evaluation is also accepted to sit for an FE exam? Is getting a credential evaluation and taking the FE even necessary for an entry level position? Is it something that can be postponed? Thank you in advance!

  18. 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!
  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. 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.

  22. Anyone looking to sell the most recent NCEES Transportation Practice Exam? or any other Transpo resources? Thanks, Beej
  23. 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.
  24. I have up for sale a few of my PE books from when I took the exam in April 2017. I recall them all being in like new condition, but will double check the HCM before finalizing the sale as it's been awhile since I looked at these. I do know for a fact that I did not write in the practice exams while taking them. Feel free to ask for some random photos of pages, etc. to verify condition if desired. All prices include shipping to US48! NCEES Practice Exam (2014) - Transportation Depth - $35 (I paid $52.56 after NCEES's massive shipping fees) Goswami - Practice Exam for the Civil PE Exam: Breadth + Transportation Depth (2015) - $23 Goswami - Practice Exams for the Civil PE Exam: Two Breadth Exams (2013) - $22 HCM 2010 (Highway Capacity Manual) - $190 If you want all 4 of these I will drop the total from $270 down to $250. I also have a spiral bound copy of the CERM table of contents (with minor highlights) that I can toss in for free to any order that wants it. Send me a PM if interested and if you want to do any back and forth discussion please include your email address so my inbox here doesn't fill up quick.
  25. 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?
