Oh ok. We were both close in passing. I will take this exam next year, maybe after I hear from people of how the cbt fe exam was. Im a bit worried about it.

I failed also with a 107/240 or 44.5%. Its pretty annoying, but its my first time taking it after being out of school for 7 years and studying on my own.

Take a review course. School of PE is awesome. It is worth it, especially if you've been out of school.

snarea,



I agree with John Q.



I just passed the EIT and I've been out of school since 2004. I took the School of PE online review class and found it helpful. I studied a lot before taking the class so it was more of a review and did not feel overwhelming. My studying also included several full length practice tests to help me get used to time management.



Good luck.

I took Testmasters Review course and I passed the first time back in 2011, I just studied for only two months and I was out of school for 16 years.

FWIW I banked on the Testmasters course I signed up for and didn't study very much previous to the start of the course. Mind you this course says it's meant to teach you as if you've been out of school for years. Anyway a week from the course they informed me that there wasn't enough people for my location (Philadelphia, huge city obviously) and I could take it in DC or Richmond Va. So I had to scramble on less than 2 months time. So keep that in mind if you used the in person Testmasters.

Still waiting for my results (Massachusetts) but I did the school of PE online review class (night session). I was pleased with the course.

Good luck ryno. Hope you passed. Definitely will look into one of these courses. Studying on my own didn't work for me. Hopefully next time I pass this test

I've been out of school for 7yrs and passed on my first attempt! What worked really well for me was getting the testmasters notes and studying that. Couldn't afford the class so had to do what I had to do. I think testmasters teaches you how to pass not necessarily engineering. If you can afford the class I would STRONGLY recommend it. If not, try to get the notes like I did and study hard! I studied for 5months (first 4mo was using the FERM). Didn't actually understand any of the problems in the FERM until I got the testmasters notes. Anyway don't give up and have faith! "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews11:1

Still no word from PA yet, my scores have been 116, 121, and 119. I feel like I'm 5 questions or so off from the mark. Ugh, nervous waiting for the email. I think I'm going to pass out as I'm routing the site to see my result.

The last time I failed in October 2010; I failed with 126 points. I felt I was real close too.

NJ Here...



April '13 Other Disciplines Failed 126/240 = 52.5%



Oct '13 Other Disciplines PASSED



Been out of school for 10 years. I used EITEXPERTS the first time. Was much needed as I needed to be TAUGHT all of the material. The 2nd time i skipped the eitexperts as I knew i simply needed to do more problems. And I got it this time.



I know Lindberg says you need a 50% to pass, but my feeling is that to pass you need a 60% or 144/240.



Don't be discouraged folks, you can do it too. Just have to put in the work. Best of Luck in the future.

So far the highest reported failing score is 118. It's crazy to me that Texas gives you the scaled %, that basically tells you the cut for that exam, in that region. Also 114 pts = 69% scaled mean 116 was passing for that state or region. And in the past people have reported 133 failing scores. That's a HUGE variance
