  10. Hello, I am from Lubbock, Texas. Preparing for the 2019 Electrical Power PE Exam. I have found couple of good advice in this forum. I hope to get more ideas and suggestions from you guys. Thanks.
  11. I have been on this forum gathering tips and advice from people that failed in the past and i used it to prepare myself for this exam in April. Unfortunately i didn't pass either. I had the key study materials that i got really familiar with and i was very confident going into the exam but came out feeling defeated. I don't want to say i had a bad test day but i fee like studying for 4 hours a day 5 days a week for 3 full months should have gotten me more than ready for this exam. I even cut out distractions like games, going out drinking and devoted my entire time to prepping for this exam. I did not take an online course however, i had the Test-masters book as well as the EEPRM. Below is a full list of what i used in preparation of the exam 1. Complex imaginary Test 1-4 i went through this twice and felt really good about myself. 2. Testmaster Booklet and practice exams 3. PPI EEPRM, Ancilarries and the practice exams that comes with it. 4. Graffeo - Guide to passing the Power PE book (Fantastic book by the way) 5. Wilde book, didnt help soo much 6. NEC code book 7. NESC code book 8. NFPA book 9. NCEES Practice exam on my third try i was in the mid 80's I am just soo confused right now, because the parts i thought i failed on the exam, i actually did great in and i did terrible in the basics like Measurement and instrumentation, Protection and Power System performance which was all shocking since i thought i aced those problem during the exam. I know this is a long post, but i have no where to go but here and seeing how you guys helped others, i am hoping for the same here as well. Thanks in advance!
  12. Since Wildi's book is widely recommended for power PE exam I have been focusing on rotating machine chapters on this book till chapter 17 (synchronous machine). I was wondering what are the other chapters to study from this book. I don't want to bogged down on this book for less important topics and lose valuable study time (from a busy work schedule).
  13. If we follow last year’s pattern, the results will come out next Monday!!! This wait will eventually kill me.
  14. 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: 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.
  15. Hi, Can someone answer these questions: 1) Am I correct in thinking that Vbc = 480V and Vab = 120V? 2) Why is only I2 multiplied by 600V? Thanks
  16. Hi All, I have these for sale.

  17. Folks, just wanted to share the number of books I rolled in with April 17th. Had I done this the first time, perhaps I would not have failed. It documented well on this board, I failed by 1 or 2 in October 16. The same day, I failed, I started studying. This may not work for some, perhaps you want to take a week off or two. But #NeverGiveUp and Never let someone tell you that you have too many books. I used all of them. And I used them well.
  18. This topic probably has been discuss. What are the pros and cons of SOPE and GA Tech? Thanks!
  19. 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
  20. Hello All: I am a new member. I would love some advise as to how I can tackle this monster (PE). A little background, this is my second attempt at the PE. The first time I took it, due to unforeseen events I was not able to study or get a refund so I showed up with the Camara PE Reference Manual, NCEES Sample Exam, Complex Imaginary Vol 3, Stevenson Power System Analysis, NEC. I failed. This time around I put in 100+ hours of studying, and got a similar score. I don't know where to start, I stare at my diagnostic in shock. 45/80. Thank you.

  22. All, I am forming a group that meets up weekly via Google Hangouts. We are looking for 2-3 additional people interested in meeting up weekly and discussing/working out problems for the Oct 2014 Power PE exam. In order to participate, you will need to have a gmail account and a web cam with microphone. Dell laptops have this built into them and iPads work really well for online meetings too using the google hangout app. Please also be registered for the Oct 2014 Power PE Exam. If interested, please PM me your gmail address that you would like to use for the group and time zone. Once we have a full group, I will schedule the first meeting based on what time zones everyone is in. For those unfamiliar with using Google Hangouts, I have attached a generic screen shot of what the meeting looks like. I have used this quite a bit for my MBA and it is very effective for study groups. Thanks, Scott
