I'm ordering a manual verification of the morning. I had several errant scratches from bouncing around problems.

Bro, BR~ I really don't know what I am thinking now. I remember I told you "one afternoon problem I don't even know which part of code I should go for it". I am still hoping to pass. Maybe I am crazy already.

Bridges?  I quoted you on that statement earlier in this thread lol

First post but I've been following this thread for a long time.  I got my results an hour ago from NCEES.  I passed!  WhooHoo!  Took the vertical in 2018 and the lateral this year. Good luck to the rest of you!

Congrats on passing the exam. Please, could you share any info about your prep for the exam like the reference materials you used, self study, etc. Thank you

I have not received notification from NCEES but did from the automatic board. I only took vertical Buildings this round.

I did it last time I took the exam and it was a waste of $75 but I know the feeling of needing closure.  Honestly, all it did was make me more bitter with how the manual verification was handled.  I asked questions beforehand but couldn't get any answers at all so finally paid the $75 and a couple weeks later got an email saying nothing changed.

Those scores are better than the previously estimated cut lines posted here

I took the Lateral - Bridges in Milwaukee, and results were posted a few hours ago.  Failed Again!  23/40 in AM and all 3 Acceptables in PM.  Damn building concrete killed me 0/5.  I was above average in 6 of the 10 categories somehow.

Can someone provide any advice as to how a bridge engineer is supposed to pass the AM when its like 80% buildings?  You would think for over $500 a pop and 6 months between and over 2 months of wait time for results that NCEES would develop 2 separate exams; 1 focusing on building (like it is currently) and 1 focusing on bridges.  Or they could keep the current format grade on different scales for bridge and building candidates.....it seems to me that bridges pass rates are ALWAYS much lower than buildings.  Shouldn't that be a flag?  Especially when a "high" pass rate is in low 30%. 

Also, why they hell does the afternoon not average with morning...its almost like 2 separate exams...its bull shit.

I hope when you get time, please teach me how to prepare the afternoon problems. Not only I have difficulties in the morning, but also afternoon. I am bridge too.
