    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?
  5. I failed my first attempt at the Civil PE - Structural Exam this past April. A bit of background about me: I did not graduate with a degree in Civil Engineering or Structural. I am a Biological Engineer with a focus in structural systems. I've been working four years as an engineer in a field of its own, utility design. Therefore, I don't have much exposure to anything civil or biological. The reason I chose the structural exam was because I enjoyed learning and taking structural courses in college. I figured the other disciplines will bore me. I took steel, wood, and multiple analysis courses. Additionally, there are so many more resources to help pass the civil exam than the biological exam. My first attempt, I completely bombed. However, I think it wasn't too bad given that I do not work in the field and only studied 2.5 months prior to the exam. It was really tough studying because I wasn't familiar with the majority of breadth topics, but knew the depth was going to be hard so I focused most of my studies on the depth. Below is my diagnostics. I would love to get any help possible. I'll be taking the PPI course again soon. I took it the first time, but I was so focused on studying for the depth, that I did not pay attention. I am hoping the second time around will be a pass. Any tips for someone who is not in the field to pass the Civil Structural? Changing disciplines is not an option. My work already paid for the thousands of dollars in course and reference materials.
  6. What did you do differently that allowed you to pass this go around?
  7. Did you pass? If not, what was your score on the diagnostic? Will help those who did not pass gauge where they were at with the Civil PE Transportation
  8. Folks, I am looking for advice. Oct 2016 I will take this exam for the 3rd time. I have tried numerous study aids and took an online course (nothing in my area). While I may not be the brightest, I have never had so much difficulty passing anything else. I tried the live PPI course, but while it is the most comprehensive, it didn't have the depth of study material to assist. Other than exam pointers, the material wasn't like the exam. Here is what I have used: NCEES's practice test. Complex Imaginary Lanza's Spin-Up for electrical engineers Electrical Engineer's Guide to passing the power pe NEC Handbook I spent way too much time studying, and apparently it wasn't effective. What else should I be doing? Thanks, JRM_CA

    What are the next steps?

    I recently passed the new CBT FE exam in Connecticut. I was wondering if anyone knew the next steps in order to secure EIT licensure in the state of CT. NCEES tells me the "Next Steps" are located here, but I can't quite seem to figure out where to go from here... Any help or input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    EET helped me PASS the NCEES PE Exam

    I normally don't do this but I feel strongly about the program that helped me pass the NCEES PE Exam (8 hour), Engineering, Education & Training (EET). I passed the seismic using Hiner, I passed the surveying using Reza combined with Monsour. But the NCEES PE Exam was a different animal. Simply put it's a lot of information. A little history: Being new to the work force and having debt from school and getting myself situated, I didn't want to spend any more money on schooling. I already paid for programs to pass Seismic and Surveying but the 8 hour I thought would be general enough that I wouldn't need any more programs. After making copies of anything I could find, finally caving in to take 2 different programs to pass the PE and still failing, I was at my wits end. I had several binders of too much material and nothing was efficient or made sense. A coworker who had passed seismic with EET said she couldn't vouch for the 8 hour because she passed it before after paying for some other program that did not help her but her experience with the Seismic instructor with EET convinced her that EET really wanted to help and it wasn't all about the money (which by the way is very reasonable.) I did not want to do it, I was afraid of wasting my time and money but I needed help. So I contacted them and actually spoke to the instructors and I got a good feeling so I signed up for Fall 2013 with EET at their web site www.eet-california.com. They were the best, they guided me from beginning to end. They keep their classes small, so that they can give personal attention and I mean they call and send emails to check that your studying and doing your assignments. They really get to know you. Your assignments include weekly homework as well as mini-quizzes or quick impromptu questions. The format made sense, I threw out all the old Binders of too much material and organized what I needed. I missed passing the October 2013 exam by 5 points (assuming a passing score of 56/80) but I was motivated! That was the closest I ever got. I was usually missing the exam by around 11 points and I couldn't get any closer. So I signed up again with EET for Spring for the April 2014 exam and PASSED!!! Side note: Both times my depth module was TRANSPORTATION. Sorry for the long post, but if you are someone that needs to be pushed, especially by someone who really cares and wants to see you succeed, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND EET. I wish I had found them sooner. I hope this helps.
  11. Just wanted to say my 2 cents after reading on this forum and passing the 8-hr exam. Most important note to pass the exam is to study, study, study. Can't stress how important it is to get your mind focused on the exam. Second, do as many practice problems as you can. Here are the books I used to pass the 8-hr exam: Civil Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam by PE, Michael R Lindeburg (2012, Hardcover, New Edition) Quick Reference for the Civil Engineering PE Exam by PE, Michael R Lindeburg (2011, Paperback, New Edition) Civil PE Sample Examination by PE, Michael R Lindeburg (2011, Paperback, New Edition) Six-Minute Solutions for Civil PE Exam Construction Problems by Elaine Huang (2012, Paperback) Construction Depth Practice Exams for the Civil PE Exam by Beth Lin Hartmann (2012, Paperback) Construction Depth Reference Manual for the Civil PE Exam by Thomas Korman (2011, Paperback) Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam : A Companion to the Civil Engineering Reference Manual by PE, Michael R Lindeburg (2011, Paperback, New Edition) If you go through these books, you will pass the exam! I'm also selling them as I don't need them anymore, PM me if you're interested. George

    CA civil first time pass rate

    There are stats on the NCEES site about first time pass rates, but there is nowhere (that I have found) that says what the first time pass rate is in CA, passing all three exams at the same time... Anyone have any idea?

    Pass/Fail ONLY determined by NCEES?

    While I continue to WAIT for my PE results, I have started to wonder about some RUMORS I have heard and was hoping someone on here can clarify them for me. I am new to North Carolina and just sat for the Civil/Transpo exam for the first time (October 2011). I have heard two consistent rumors since I moved to North Carolina: Rumor #1: The NC Board establishes their own cut score after given the scores from NCEES. (I don't believe this is true due to the timing of the scores, I would just like to hear it from someone.) Rumor #2: It doesn't matter if you aced your depth module and one or two sections of your breadth module, you have to correctly answer a certain percentage in each of the sections of the breadth exam to 'Pass' the exam. On a side note, how is it that NCEES posts a 69% pass rate for first time takers (40% for repeat takers) yet I see some states have a overall 50-60% pass rate? Are there that many repeat takers or do some states have a 70-90% pass rate to bring up the average? Any help would be appreciated and would help to ease my nerves. Thank you.
