How did it go? PE Civil Construction Oct 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi all! 

If you took the PE Civil Construction this past Friday (October 2019), I'd like to know how you did? 

The morning session was fine... a few tough ones, but overall ok. Afternoon was a time crunch! Not so confident about the afternoon session.

My second time taking it.  The afternoon portion wasn't so daunting this time around as the first.  I actually used and tabbed out reference materials as I was studying this time.  Went a long way.  Morning went pretty well I think, missed 12 last go round, hoping this time went a bit better.  Hoping I only missed around 5.

I know for certain I had to guess on an economics question.  Knew I would blow too much time setting it up.  Didn't prepare too much for that.

Good on you! It seems you were prepared this time. Bunch of my coworker that were second timers said both morning and afternoon were more difficult than the last time! 

If you don't mind me asking, last time overall how many correct answers did you have? Just trying to get an idea of the cut-off passing score. 

Thanks!

It also depends how those second timers prepared.  Did they study all material as if it was 1st time taking test, or did they focus what was on the test last time, and this time it was different topics they werent ready for.

This is my second time taking the exam but first time Construction Depth. I think AM was more though compare to the breeze from April. I don’t know about the difficulty from last session but I know some questions couldn’t be solved in less than 15 min. The exam seems lengthy with obscure questions

45 Overall correct last time.  28 AM 17 in PM.   I feel like I've made improvements in both, major improvements in the afternoon.  Not saying much since I did so terribly, but hopefully enough to get a pass.

Just another reminder, everyone! Please don't post (or even both asking) about specific exam question content! Or in other words...

The first rule of fight club, is that you never talk about fight club.

Seriously, don't do it! Thanks for your cooperation, all!

I'm glad you got my report (even with the fight club reference). Don't want the duffus who asks a dumb question to get them self as well as the person who answers their question in serious trouble with the mothership (NCEES).  I was just getting ready to re-post Don't be this guy.

First time taking it. I felt really good coming out of the AM. It felt very similar to the official practice exams. The PM felt okay until I hit a swath of tough questions. Panic started to set in, but a quick break settled me back in. 

I put in 5-10 hours a week starting in June and jumped it to 20 or so hours a week for the last two months. I think I’m still in awe at how quickly I went from feeling completely prepared to “what corner of hell did NCEES drag this question out of?” I really hope I am not doing this again in April.

The AM problems were a reasonable mix of simple and complex. However, I felt the PM problems needed more time than 4 hours to solve.

Yes, I was fortunate enough to pass this time.  Phew!  You'll get it next time.  I practiced a lot more this time around.
