Passed Elec-Power Florida! mauldinite and stinkycheese to the rescue. A few months ago I remember thinking that all I'd need for the exam was the Camara PE Reference book... thanks to this board for correcting that naivete, among so many other mistakes that I was on the way to making over the last few months!

Is it okay that I post the first failing score in this thread?? Am I in the wrong thread? LOL!

Ugh.

First off, congrats to everyone who passed! I wouldn't wish failing on my worst enemy or anything along the lines of misery loves company. It's a tough test, and hopefully you are all as excited as I was when I passed the Fire Protection PE exam a few years ago!!!

Anyways, took the test in South Carolina, Electrical/Power, 47/80. That's a one question improvement over the last exam I took (October 2010).

I took the review course at Clemson which was fantastic except for the fact that they started it very late this year (about 5 weeks from the test date!). Additionally I didn't start any prep before then, and then work got real busy so despite my desires to really put in the effort this time around (#3), that didn't happen.

I'd say I studied less overall than last time but did better. I believe in myself that I can pass this exam if I put in the right amount of effort with the new weaponry I have (2 practice exams from Imaginary, tons and tons of practice problems from Clemson review - a lot didn't get touched unfortunately) in addition to what I already have been using.

It's becoming easy to start having a lot of doubt and losing confidence with each failure, but having passed a PE exam outside of my discipline I know it's doable. I'd like to say there's some indifference to taking this exam because I'm already a PE. Unfortunately that hunger is one of the necessary parts needed.

So instead of giving up I will make a go for it yet again in October. I will start a separate thread going over my diagnostic, and laying out what I have and what I should have. Never picked up that Grainger book, and I feel like an idiot for not doing so.

I will get this thing!! F****!!!!

Thanks and congratz to all who passed!

Congrats to all the fellow electricals that passed! Those that didn't, there are a lot of previous threads in this particular forum (some created by myself) to offer very helpful suggestions of what to try for next time in your studies. Don't give up. Stay focused and determined. :thumbs:

i found the complex imaginary practice tests to be invaluable. they're a great resource for studying.

for taking into the test - i found the chelpatti review course books to be great as well as the georgia tech binder. they both have great sample problems in them and are even better as a study reference. i didn't have either one taken away during the test as they made their rounds and sifted through my books.

both were lent to me, so I'd suggest either buying them or borrowing them from someone asap.

Congrats to ALL those who passed :Banane35:.

Sorry to hear about those who were NOT so lucky this go around, and I wish any Oct 2012 re-takers the best luck!

If any EE re-takers are scanning this thread and interested to see my study material (also for sale), please see this other thread:

I also agree with the other members posts, this board was a tremendous help!

Passed. Ohio. Electrical-computer engineering. Only studied for this exam for about three weeks. I found it really easy. I flew through each half in like two hours and then spend about an hour checking myself before I got bored and left.

I didn't get numeric exam results.

Folks, I pass the PE exam on the third trial. Here are my receipes:

In April 2011, I took a prep class to prepare me for the exam. It was totally useless so when I sat for the first time, surprisingly I was ready for maybe 40% of the exam. It was a shock to me.

In October of the same year, I studied by myself but not with the proper guidance so I failed again. But one thing I knew for sure it was durable. It is a matter of being properly guided.

For the Arpril of 2012 exam, a friend of mine advised me to study the Wildi book from in and out which I did. I solved every single problem in the Wildi books and I review them for a second time. I also used the Shaum book along with notes from the school of PE. I can tell you that I felt very comfortable and I pass.

My advise is to get the following books:

1-Wildi Book (This book is unique)

2-School of PE prep class(Right on target)

3-Shaum Book(Excellent for Relays and coordination)

4-NEC CODE 2011(Make sure you tab it)

That is your ticket to be officially a P.E

3-NCEES Practice Problems for Electrical and Computer: POWER

4-IES Handbook for those surprise lighting problems
