NEW YORK - RESULTS

Recommended Posts

It's gonna be a while. Castle Worldwide is no bargain. I took the EIT in NY in an April offering and heard back in July sometime.

Don't even ask me about my PE by reciprocity experience there. Took 9.5 months.

And as a reward for passing, you get some of the worst PDH requirements in the country. Good luck fella.

Yep ... NY will have to hold tight for awhile longer. The third party administrator is slower than molasses in January (pun intended).

i predict around jan 8th.

does the state post the results before the letters go out? That stinks to have to wait another 3 weeks after others have gotten their results.

they start entering the names on the states website just before the letters go out (or maybe the same day). But they were only entering 10-20 names per day. So i'm guessing that most people got the letter before they spotted their names on the website.

I actually saw a friends name on the website and called her that day. She received her passing letter 2 days later. I on the other hand got the "try again" letter.

Long time no see. How did the exam go this time? Did you use the School of PE course again?

Good luck with the results...

The other thing is that calling the state board will get you a different answer depending on who picks up and what kid of mood they are in. It's definitely lame.

that is very true. they are charging 475 dollars for SE2, and guess what i had to explain what were SE1 and SE2 to one of them. also, without asking your name and necessary info, they easily can tell you to call them in 6 weeks pretty much about anything!

just spoke to someone at the NYS board and she said the NY results won't be mailed/posted until the end of January. I really hope this is not the case. This would give you only 2.5 months to get ready for new modified April 08 exam. (really 2 months because you'll be pissed for 2 weeks about not passing and won't get much studying done)

Castle stinks. I took the April 08 exam and found my name on the NYS Office of Professionals website BEFORE I got the letter. Although I was pleased with finding my name there, I can't believe that NYS was faster than Castle. It took from April 20, test day, to June 28 for the web post. June 29 for the letter.

I guess its just part of the continual price we pay for living in this state! :poop:

Even though I love it (I live in central NY), I also hate it! :smileyballs:

Hi all, new here... long time reader, first time posting. I'm taking the April 08 exam, and I haven't heard anything about a new modified format. How is it different than this years tests? Is there anywhere I can find more info on this?

they added a new construction module and combined Water Resources and Environmental. the new modules are Construction, Transpo, Water Resources and Envrionmental, Geotechnical, and Structural. The AM portion will be 20% of each of these topics, and the PM will be a choice of one of them.

OK , I may have jumped the gun.. This pertains to the PE, I was wondering about the FE. Is it the same format, or will it change as well??

I did not do the PE course again. As a matter of fact, I did not study one bit! The only "studying" I did was collect my references the night before. I felt no different leaving in October than I did in April, only in April I studied my buns off.

I don't recommend not studying to anyone, it is just that I could not sacrafice that kind of energy twice in one year. I have a wife and 5 kids at home!

thats almost the exact thing that i did, i spent about 2-3 hours going over where everything was in the books 2 days before the exam and then packed the car the night before and i felt no worse than i did when i took it in april. we'll see how the diagnostics says i actually did though. i figure that i only missed it by 3-4 questions in april, so who knows.......

Exactly! I was pretty confident after April, and I was really upset that I did not feel much different after leaving the room in October. It makes you feel like your damned if you study, and damned if you don't. That sounds real sour, but I am not that far gone yet. I will play the game until I get it done, thats all.

for what its worth NY is updating its website with new licenses. they are up to around #085332 and climbing.

they so far are all out of state people though. reciprocity licenses is my guess.
