Hello all - after lurking for almost two years, I thought it was high time to create an account and get my voice heard! Ok, not really, I just wanted to commiserate with everyone else. So, for the -1 of you that are interested, here's my pathetic sob story:

2001 - Graduated with Masters in Structural from Manchester University in the UK. Wicked, great, pat-myself-on-the-back, I'm so smart.

2015 - Yeah, old girls rule...decided to take the PE exam, how hard could it be? Hard enough, apparently.

2016 (April) - round 2....yeah, nope.

2016 (October) - round 3. <multiple expletives> spent the better part of an hour stuck in traffic and missed the start of the test. Yeah....nope.

2017 (April) - round 4 (but sort of still 3)...waiting, not very patiently, for what I know is probably a fail (since the exam completed knocked the wind out of me), but I still for whatever reason hold on to the small glimmer of hope that perhaps I am done after all.

So, fellow brethren with fond wishes, I bid thee farewell....for the next 5 mins anyway, before I log on again.:wacko:

Can't you get it based on 20 years experience or is that only some states?

No. Experience can replace education needed to be eligible to take the test in some states.  still have to pass the test.  otherwise every engineer with 20 yrs in would be a PE.

You give me hope. Keep going on the path. At this point so much has been invested that not to continue is crazy. Best of the luck to you, I feel your pain... 3rd time test taker here.
