EET prep course

Recommended Posts

I took the PE construction exam in April and just found out last week that I passed.  I took the EET on-demand course to prepare and those guys did a great job.  Each student gets 2 large binders full of lecture notes and practice problems - one for the breadth and one for the depth you select.  The professors do an excellent job with the notes they have prepared for lecture, explaining the concepts during the recorded sessions, and then walking through example problems step by step.  They have a ton of practice problems and they give a practice exam when they are finished with the course to check your readiness.  If you watch all the lectures and do all the problems it's pretty intensive and takes a a lot of time, (90+ hours of lecture breadth and depth combined and probably that amount of time outside the lectures doing problems - I'd estimate 150-200 hours minimum) but I felt like I was very well prepared going into the exam.  When I took the test I felt very confident about most of the material.  I felt they did a good job of really teaching the concepts that are most likely to be on the test and there were very few questions on the test that I hadn't seen something similar in the class.  If there was any negative about the class it would have been the structures portion as it was difficult for me to follow, but they may have just been that it's a more difficult topic.

If I had to do it over again I would definitely take EET to prep and I would highly recommend anybody who is preparing for the test to check it out.

I second all of this. I took the PE construction depth course and the only reason I did not take the breadth is because I had already signed up and paid for an in person weekend breadth course. If I were to go back I would take both the morning and afternoon with EET. The on demand feature is great, the binder was the best and most heavily relied on reference I had and Professor Ead goes above and beyond to ensure you are prepared. Luckily I do not have to worry about how I would do it again, because I passed first try in large part to this class!

Complete the lectures, tab the binder they provide and complete all of the homework questions. This class is more affordable that everything else I have seen out there and the results are proven. Highly recommend.

@MikeNE and @wfrench Thank you for your review. I'm in the process of registering for the EET civil on-demand breadth and construction depth. This is reassuring.

I also took the EET Civil Construction for this April exam (on-demand) and passed the exam. I didn't love one of the professors, but the binders they send (which contain the professors' presentations) are invaluable. I highly recommend using EET.

Did you use any of the NCEES Construction Depth references? I'm about to purchase all of them (approximately $900 worth). Even if I don't use them, I still want them. Just curious if you used them during the exam.

I had everything except for 2 listed references. Both of which had specific questions that couldn't be answered without them, so yes, worth it.

I'm registered for EET and I have all of my books and some. I'm trying to map out my video schedule around sleep, work, and family obligations (I'm married and I have a very young child). So this is it. I'm diving in. It's taken me over a year to prepare. I even changed jobs so that I could get the time and flexibility to study for this exam (there were other reasons too).

Can someone describe the difference between EET live webinar vs. recording (with respect to SE courses)?

Does live webinar registered folks get access to previous recordings of the material?

I think that if you register to attend the live webinars, you only have access to view recordings of the live webinar that you registered for.

Can I attend the class by viewing the recordings without attending the live sessions?

Yes, if that is your preference. You may send any inquiries to the instructor if you had any question after watching the recordings.

Live webinar is live meetings you can interact with. Each webinar is recorded and available for you to watch in about 1 day after the live version. With on-demand course you get access to all content immediately to watch at your leisure. With this method you get the recording from the previous live webinar  ( i.e for Fall 2019 course, on demand users will get the stuff from the Spring 2019 course)

Thanks for the reply. I registered for the live version. With this, I have access to previous recordings as well. So, effectively it is the same. Waiting for the binders to come through the mail.

I know I am going to miss a few live sessions. For this, I have the option to go to the April 2019 recorded sessions or wait for EET to upload the video (not sure how long this takes). Since there is no code changes from April 2019 to October 2019, I am hoping that the old videos will suffice.

From my experience the recordings were usually posted the following day. Code didn't change but the manual may be updated if they added additional slides.
