so ill just say maybe ill test in october, and start studying after thailand 

After Thailand sounds like a good plan.

Heck, even with decoupling now being a thing in CA, I don't think I plan to take the SE until I have a few more years of experience under my belt.

yeah. i was a bit late to the party for the PE game so i should be thinking about the SE soon. Just have to determine how soon, specifically.

Haha, what do you mean? I have 4+ years of experience in a state where you only need 2 years to take the PE (one if you have a master's).

Then again, I  did start my professional career in a state where I needed 4 years of experience before taking the exam.

I hope you still have some fingers left with which you can type (read: spam).

i have technically 8ish years of experience, but a different degree situation, so we're probably about the same in verified experience level. a lot of the people my age at my company took the SE this oct. my years of experience are muddy though because of the recession i jumped to do bridges then back to buildings but was really just structural BIM and then now i'm back in the building game. i'm basically a mess :D

Nope...This year was a weird gap year between people who just passed it and people who don't quite qualify yet.

so, according to david connor's schedule i should have started studying at the beginning of october to pass one half of the SE in april. 

Perhaps, I think it depends on your base knowledge. If you felt the PE STR depth was a bit of a challenge then you will definitely need that much time. As for the SE, I studied only 300 hrs, went straight for the Vert and Lat on a weekend in 2014, failed both. Signed up for the SE Vert Oct 2015 with another 300 hrs of study and failed again. I was a bit frustrated to say the least and signed up for the PE April 2016 and passed. I realized the PE tests your basic understanding of analysis and code. The SE tests your understanding of vague code exceptions and comprehensive structural analysis theory.

I will take the SE again when the kids are out of diapers. Might even get my structural masters degree first. Four kids under six and a heavy workload is not easy to put forth the time for that exam. My wife is an angel for her part. 

You have an advantage over my experience with the seismic, I had to learn that from scratch.
