  1. I took the EET depth prep course for the Civil PE - Water Resources and Environmental. The course was a lot of work, but I absolutely would not have passed without taking this class. It was a 'you don't know what you don't know' sort of situation going in. I have been out of school for 7 years and only worked in the water resources field for approximately 1 year after college. I have had a wide variety of jobs since then - a couple have been in the engineering field; none of them have been in WR or environmental or even true design. My point in saying that is that I had very little knowledge and experience going into the PE prep. Nazrul's class was excellent from the start. He is clearly invested in each of his student's success on the exam. The course materials are very well laid out with loads of worked examples to help teach you and then even more problems to practice on. They way he explains topics is so straightforward and easy to comprehend. If you don't understand it the first time, he will try a different method of explanation to help drive the point home. The class is absolutely worth the effort and it plus the binder were vital to my success on the exam. The only other prep material I had for the PM portion was the depth exam I purchased from NCEES, CERM and a Metcalf & Eddy WWT book I used as a reference in the exam. As a side note, I took the exam in October 2019 and I used the CERM 15th edition (current is CERM 16th) and saved a bunch of money buying it in good used condition. I didn't have any issues with outdated spec references since that's not really part of the AM portion or WRE depth. My only regret is that I didn't also take the morning/breadth prep through EET. A different class was sponsored through my job for the breadth portion and was taught by Peter Martin. The class had almost no instruction or explanation and was just a poorly organized series of questions that he sort of walked through each week and the rest was up to you to self-teach. This was not well-suited to my learning style and, had I not spent a considerable amount of time preparing for the breadth topics aside from his course I think I would have really struggled. EET is expensive, but don't let it scare you away. In my opinion, it is absolutely worth the money to pass on the first attempt! I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone considering the Civil PE - WRE. Good luck (and thanks Nazrul!)!
  2. I passed on my first attempt this year, April 2018, which is a huge relief! I took the EET Breadth and Depth review courses, and I can't say enough about how awesome an instructor Dr. Nazrul Islam is! (I'm not sure this is the best place for this post, so please advise if it should go elsewhere). My undergraduate degree is in Environmental Science, so I had to take a bunch of extra courses to get into a graduate engineering program, to eventually get licensed as an engineer. I felt shaky on the breadth all the way through, which I expected. Dr. Islam runs a tight ship and provides you with all the material you need to pass the WRE Afternoon section. I signed up early for the depth, got the discount, thinking I could use the CERM to make my own reference binder for the morning, and when I saw how awesome Nazrul's course was, I signed up for the Breadth too. Unfortunately, the webinar Breadth course had filled up by that time, so I could only take the on-demand. The binders they provide are so organized, so in depth, such helpful resources. And from the thread "EET -Thanks (Passed PE Oct 2016)", this: Nazrul also was great at letting us know he believed we were capable and that we should rely on ourselves during the exam. In addition to being incredibly technical and thorough, he also just said some very kind things to instill confidence. He was also available by email, responding punctually, and even offered to talk to me on the phone and provide personal sessions (both of which I turned down, but that shows his dedication). I was sure I failed walking out of the exam, and I emailed Nazrul to tell him, and he was a good source of comfort. I highly recommend Nazrul's WRE depth course and the EET breadth course as well.
  3. I have the following Civil PE and WRE Depth materials for sale (see pics). All of them are like-new with no markings/highlighting. I originally planned to take the exam back in 2013, so some of the materials were purchased then (to the tune of $700+). I purchased the newer NCESS practice exam in 2017 when I actually got around to studying for (and passing, YAY!!) the exam. I've included the copyright and ISBN numbers for each. Take it all off my hands for $320. Free shipping for 4 books or more. $5 shipping for 3 or less. Paypal preferred. PM me with questions or offers. I'll update if/when books are purchased.

  4. Hello, So here is the thing. My 2nd attempt was not successful (October 2017, Civil WRE) First Attempt: October 2016: I didn't spent that much time for studying. Also, didn't had that much practice problems. I took the ASCE Civil 22 part course. Not that much helpful at all, specially my depth was WRE and content of those course videos was not helpful, sometimes misleading compared to NCEES guideline. They felt more like a college course, not exam focused. Used CERM and some other text books. So I failed. 2nd Attempt: I really tried to ace WRE/ENV part this time, solved more problems for the afternoon based on 6 minutes, goswami and some other hand notes /practice problems. I felt confident. But this time my score was 66%.. Also, I felt I did not had enough reference materials with me, specially for environment /air quality section . Now, I really want to make a difference this time. So planning to take a review course. Which course would be better, EET or Testmasters Dallas ? I have silently followed all the posts in this board , but would highly appreciate if someone can share their recent experience List of Reference /Books: I really felt the afternoon environment section had a lot of stuff that was not covered in CERM, Goswami, 6 minutes, or even the env textbooks I took with me
  5. If anyone is interested, I have materials on WRE for free. I can only offer it to CA residents and local pick-up only in the Sacramento area. It will cost me an arm and a leg to mail it. It is taking space in my garage. I thought, I offer it just in case there is someone out there interested before I toss it into the recycling bin.
  6. *** TRY FREE WRE PE SAMPLE PROBLEMS *** Okay everyone, I've been creating sample WRE PM problems, and digitizing them to ultimately sell on my BRAND NEW site (; however, I will be posting free sample problems as well. I just posted 4 problems today, and would like to hear feedback, as well as gauge interest in more problems. I plan to load the site up with a significant amount of free problems (and other helpful resources) to get the ball rolling. Please let me know what you think with some feedback here!
  7. I took the review classes from EET. The Depth was great but the Breadth class was not very helpful. I took the exam in April 2017 and October 2017. My score on the Breadth did not improve at all. I was hoping to take a Breadth class from another provider but not sure who. I think I can handle the Depth without taking another class. The material provided by EET was comprehensive and very organized. It is the Breadth, I am struggling with. Any advice will be appreciated.

  9. Hi everyone, I've created 5 free qualitative RBC questions to use in preparation for the WRE PM session. Please share with your colleagues, and share your thoughts. GOOD LUCK studying!! Solutions to the problems are here: Problem #1. All of the following are types of drive assemblies used to rotate an RBC, except: a. high rate filter b. roughing filter c. standard rate filter d. tertiary filter Problem #2. When the temperature of the influent to a trickling filter is warmer than ambient air, the air will: a. flow down through the media b. flow up through the media c. recirculate throughout the media d. air temperature compared to influent temperature has no bearing on the air flow Problem #3. Voids between the filter media in a trickling filter: a. must be kept open to allow sloughing of biology and proper air flow b. must be kept plugged to allow proper detention time of wastewater c. must be kept plugged to allow for retention of biology in the filter d. must be kept open to allow for visual inspections of filters Problem #4. The best observed characteristic of biomass in a RBC can be described as: a. being white in appearance denoting special bacteria are treating sulfur compounds b. being black in appearance denoting biomass effectively using dissolved oxygen in treatment c. being brown to grey in color, shaggy in appearance and uniformly covering the media d. being brown to grey in color, smelling of sulfide and sloughing off, exposing many bare spots Problem #5. A small community has a wastewater plant with an RBC system and experiences a high flow during the day and a very low flow during the night. Which of the following is the most true statement describing the best operational parameters? a. high loading during the day provides the biomass food, RBC experiences sloughing due to low loading at night. Influent flows should be throttled during the peak times making use of an equalization tank, and secondary flows should be recycled at night. b. high flows during the day provide a diluted influent and low flows during the night provide a concentrated influent. Secondary flows should be recycled at a high rate during the day and reduced during the night. c. these flow parameters are normal flows for an RBC system. The operator should make very small adjustments throughout the day and night. d. a flow equalization tank should be installed in the plant and only used when flows are consistent throughout the day and night.
  10. I just wanted to touch base with everyone prepping for the April exam. It's been all quite on the home front...a little too quite. Anyways how is you studying progressing, how many hours are you putting in per week, how are you feeling about the material. I am taking EET review for both breadth and depth. The depth is going great. I am putting in the 8 hrs of time for live webinar and roughly 2 hours a day to complete problems so I'm at around 20 hrs a week. I plan to up the weekly time from now on. So far I am feeling somewhat confident with the info I am getting from EET. Any input from previous takers on the amount of time you spent per week would be great also. Thanks!

  14. Hi everyone, my name is Travis... I found out yesterday I am eligible to sit for the PE exam in April. I work as a civil doing forcemain design, gravity design and site plans. I typically see these projects through construction... but I am wondering if I should go Water Resources or Construction? How in depth does the construction afternoon session go? I appreciate any information/guidance you all can provide me! TD
