  1. Who can solve this question from our practice portal? Comment below, and we will post the solution tomorrow. School of PE
  2. Do you live by a river, stream, or any other waterway? If so, chances are you cross a bridge often during a commute- whether it be to work, to school, or just to another part of town. Although there are many structural and civil engineers who can be credited for developing the bridges we have and use today, there is one engineer who is largely credited for bridgework and development. In fact, he is considered the “Father of the Iron Bridge.” His name was Squire Whipple. READ MORE
  3. Hi, I am taking WRE PE on April 2017 and want to choose between School of PE and EET for the best Breadth session. I have read the previous posts about how good EET is for WRE depth section. But I want to make sure I will not go wrong with Breadth portion since that is the section I am weakest at. Thanks!
  4. I am looking to take the PE (Power) Exam in October and am looking for online review course recommendations. I'm leaning toward doing a live online course since it would most effectively get me into a routine since I would want to be in attendance at a set time each week. But I know one drawback of this is you cannot skip through material if you know it won't be very useful to you (ex: instructor answers a question on a topic you already have mastered). So, I don't necessarily have to do live online. Also, I don't plan to fail the exam, but having a guarantee would be nice. I've already looked at the following: Test Masters School of PE PPI GA Tech The Test Masters and School of PE seem too condensed for the live online courses. One month just seems too short. The GA Tech course is cheaper than the others and seems like a lot of people have used it and like it, but how many hours of lectures is it? I didn't see that on the course site. The PPI live online course spans a little over two months which seems good, and comes with more materials than the others, but I'm not sure of the quality of the course itself. I took the PPI FE course and wasn't too impressed with it, but admittedly it was during the revamping of the FE exams themselves to the more discipline specific ones (still, I think it could have been much better), so I'm not sure what their typical courses are like under normal conditions. Which review course do you like and why? What are your experiences with Live Online vs watching lectures on demand? How much value did you get out of the course you took? Any other suggestions you would have for me and what I'm looking for? Thanks
  5. I failed my first try on the Power PE going it alone, but I don't want to have this awful feeling again. I'm considering a review courses and based on some of the discussions on EB, it's hard to pick one that would fit me. I've been out of school for over 20 years and even that I've not done Power at all in all my jobs since college. I have a full-time busy job and a family with school-age kid so studying & absorbing is not as easy as it used to be :-( I've been using Graffeo, Complex Imaginary 1-4, and Complex Imaginary Code Drill, Tom Henry's index. I spent about 2.5 months studying for the Oct. 2015 and failed it. I came into the exam confident, but it shattered me. I found that I was very weak in the code section so I need to improve on that. Some of the questions were phrased in a way that caused major confusion for me, so I'll need to work on that too. Anyway, please provide your feedback if you've taken review courses for Power PE. Thanks.
  6. Have any of you taken the School of PE for the Transportation Depth portion and how well did it prepare you for the exam? I have read one comment saying that it was not enough to prepare for the afternoon, what do you think? What can I do to prepare for the afternoon in addition to the NCEES practice exam and SOPE. Thanks.
  7. Hi Everyone, I am thinking to take FE electrical review course, and I still deciding between School of PE and Prepineer. Anyone who took FE review with them, please tell me the difference ? Please, kind of want to decide ASAP. if there has better options, please let me know as well. Thank you !!!!

  14. Did anyone take School of PE's Electrical and electronics course? Is it helpful? How well did it cover the exam's materials?
  15. They seemed to have not changed the format of the course for the CBT since the 8hr courses are the general topics which in my opinion is a waste the CBT is based on your topic so the 8 hr courses should be your topic not general. The main CBT topics in my case electrical are covered in 3hrs per topic(circuits, controls, electonics, etc) which as you can image is not enough time. I have sent an email to sope to see if they will add extra time for more coverage I have not heard a reply from them yet. Ill keep you guys/gals updated as to what happens.
  16. Hello All, After searching the forum I have been unable to find it previously answered so here it goes. For past test takers: 1) Did School of PE prepare you for California seismic? 2) Did School of PE prepare you for California survey? 3) Did School of PE prepare you for construction? My concerns are that the survey and seismic seem much shorter than other courses. Also the time they spend on breadth seem significantly less. So do they prepare you well enough compared to for instance Hiner's class or Mansour's class? Would anyone recommend Mansour's class for the extra money? I contacted both organizations and haven't heard back. John
  17. Hi, We were wondering, how many people seek practice questions/problems? If you did, how much do you feel the example questions helped you to pass your exam/exams? Additionally, we would like to know what other unique help or recourses people look for when preparing for the FE Exam for example? What about a "ask the professor" type situation where you can ask an instructor for help with preparing for the exam? We are working on improving our FE Exam Questions of the Week as well as the PE exams example problems. Right now, as of (04/19/2013) it’s very limited to one question where the solution is sent via Email for marketing purposes. To review, the links provided above will take you there. We are always striving to improve our program and provide our students with as much relevant recourses that help assist them in passing the exams. We appreciate any feedback and welcome any questions or suggestions. Thank you!
  18. Everyone who is preparing for the April 12th and 13th sitting of the 16 Hour Structural exam please be advised that the Kaplan Structural Engineering PE Licence Review Problems and Solutions 8th ed. and the Civil & structural Engineering Seismic Design Review for the PE exam 7th ed both by Alan Willams and bolth sold together by Kaplan as a package have numerous errors. I am not just talking about small typos but glarring errors that could turn an "Acceptable" answer to a "Needs improvement" or knock a "needs improvement" down to an "unaccceptable". What is very distressing is that there is even instances where information in one of these texts is refuted in the second text. Take for example EX 4.5 in Civil & structural Engineering Seismic Design Review for the PE exam 7th ed , The drag force diagram in exibit 23 is just plain incorrect since the drag force diagram should be drawn as the area under the net shear curve. The exact same problem shows up in Structural Engineering PE Licence Review Problems and Solutions 8th ed. as example 2.8. the drag force diagram shown in exibit 2.8a is STILL wrong and wrong the same way. Now look at the beam splice component of this problem shown in the two different texts, in the version where it is Ex.4.5 the author neglects to use the overstrength factor. This is contrary to what is called for in ASCE 7 12.10.2.1 which explicicitly states that all collector elements and their connectors must use the Overstrength factor case. However in the text where it is example 2.8 the author correctly uses the over strength factor for the beam splice requirement. He gets even more confusing as he proceeds to use the overstrenth factor to design the brace it self but does not do so in the text where this same problem is Ex 3.5. This is just one of the numerous issues I have encountered with these texts and I am extremely dissatasfied with Kaplan and Alan Willams and I am not sure who is more to blame. On one hand Alan Willams wrote these crappy books but on the other it seems like Kaplan dosen't hire editors. Seriously how do you have two books written by the same guy sold as a package deal by the same company which publishes and edits both of them AND still have issues with contradictory information. Also lets just forget all about the fact that these texts repeat 75-80 percent of their content so right there Kaplan sold almost twice the number of books right off the bat.
