I passed! holy $h!t

Do they provide any detailed information on how you did other than a "pass" or "fail"?

Depends on which state you sat for the exam. I believe TX is one of the only jurisdictions that releases your passing score.

Good thing I took it in Texas. They did something similar for the FE, and actually gave you your score out of 100. I don't remember if they mailed or emailed the results though.

Congrats, to all the passers.

The description about the morning portion being more difficult and having a lot of curveballs compared to the afternoon session applies to the version of the exam I took back in '11. Keep at it and don't be discouraged

I passed as well (according to the CTS website, it's not up for Illinois on NCEES yet).  A combination of Graffeo and tabbed notes from School of PE is what got me over the finish line.  I am certain I would have failed without them both.  

I leaned on Graffeo so much I actually can't imagine what test-takers did before that book was published lol.

Congrats! 

 

Its funny you say that, during alot of my practice tests I used graffeo's book but during the actual test I picked up the engineering pro guides PDF (mostly the equation sheets) I printed out significantly more. Seemed to have worked though since I passed.

Thank you for mentioning that, I completely forgot.  I think I had just done so many math problems at that point I memorized a lot of the formulas, and was speaking with respect to references for theoretical questions.

The Engineer Pro Guide notes were the best consolidated set of equations I found anywhere for exam reference.  They were so much more complete and better than my own compiled list of relevant equations.  Thank you again for your help, Justin.
