PTOE - June 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi @txtrafficeng @socalengineer

I'm scheduled to take it about two weeks from now. How hard is the test? Is time a challenge? I'm reviewing the PTOE refresher course only. It has does not contain many practice problems. You think it will probably be enough?

@wannacape I did the ITE PTOE refresher course. I also purchased the ITE PTOE practice test. Both were very helpful in the exam. Make sure you know some values for formulas like deceleration and perception reaction time. I finished the exam fully in 3 hours. I felt prepared. You should have plenty of time. I went through the refresher course and memorized values like max super elevation. I think that helped. Reach out if you have more questions.

@wannacape, I took my test last week. was able to finish it within 3 hours. Calculations were pretty straight forward.

i felt it was too wordy with questions, not sure if questions were from any manuals or pure general knowledge.  Some questions had possible 2 correct answers which you could argue either ways with limited information.  ya well, will find out in a month's time if I passed. Good luck to you.

@socalengineer I made lots of educated guesses. Funny I was very confused by the phrasing/wording of a bunch of questions (that maybe because of my english). I did not feel sure that I got it, But  overall feel I should be very close to passing.

Apparently results come by mail! At least that’s what I heard from a colleague that passed in October. 

Any idea if favorable results are delivered in a regular envelope? Or do you receive a certificate in a larger envelope?

@CivilE I see something from TPCB coming in my mail today... It's a regular size business envelope. Will go home at lunch to check, I think my mail comes at 10:30. High anxiety!

I see the same thing. Not sure if USPS Informed Digest is a good thing or a bad thing. I will not be able to find out until I get home around 5 this afternoon. Looking forward to hearing back from you.

The wife got home early today and checked the mail for me. Good news as well! I will be interested to see the breakdown of the score, as I did not feel overly confident when I left the exam.

Got my results today, passed! That was a hard test. Highest score was an 83% with a 68% average. 

Congratulations...Can you confirm the passing score when you took the test...is it 68%?
