  1. I took Structures but I kept the binder as is and left the notes and practice problems where they were because I knew I could get to them quickly. I had another binder of just practice exams and other notes and equations. I would put all of your solved practice problems and exam solutions (anything handwritten) in a binder by itself. In the exam you won't have time to look at those anyways and generally speaking including those with the notes and practice problems sheets will only slow you down. Also make sure anything you bring into the exam that is hand written is in pen. No pencil
  2. EET breadth and depth Sign up for the live webinars so you make yourself study.
  3. What this guy said is spot on. I had to take it twice before passing. The first time I walked out of the exam I knew I failed but hey I knew what I needed to do the second time. Use that as a building block to study next time. I took EET on demand breadth and live webinar depth the second time and it was a wake up call in terms of the way I needed to study. It's easy to just jump into example problems but it's useless without the concepts behind them. Put in the hours during the week and weekends even when it's 8-12 weeks off. Don't even attempt NCEES practice exams or any other type
  4. My girlfriend loves that show! Noel is hilarious as well haha.
  5. Good luck to everyone taking it this week. My word of wisdom would be to bring a jacket or sweatshirt as well as a water bottle and gum. Keep calm and keep comfortable. DO NOT get hung up on one problem you think you know where it is, skip it and get it on the way back.
  6. I actually used my EET notes and the CERM quite a bit for conceptual questions. Surprisingly there were a bunch of questions that were just look up's...you had to know where they were to find them.
  7. Thanks man! I’m guessing you had a least 4 years under that 1 PE that you got your reference? Or did they count the others as progressive experience.
  8. Congrats! What exactly did you change when you resubmitted? I'm probably going to be in a similar situation as the PE I was working under has retired and is in very bad health so getting his direct signature was out of the question.
  9. Bring OSHA, it may be a look up question that you wish you had printed. If you don't have access to it pm me and I'll forward you what I have. I agree AAHSTO and PCI were 1-2 questions max.
  10. I have to say this is a great topic and exactly what I went through. I ended up passing my second time Civil Structural after taking EET. The key in my passing the second time would be... 1) Taking an online class. What this does is keep you accountable not only because you paid for the class but because it keeps you on a schedule. No more "I'll cram this in one weekend, or I'll do those problems whenever." 2) Knowing what my references were and how to find things in them. The first time I took it, everything seemed to be a second language, however the good news is the more you
  11. I read the exact same things last year when I failed in the fall (1st attempt) School of PE was great for the morning but lousy for the afternoon. I took EET for the spring...both breadth and depth and passed (2nd attempt). I did on demand for morning and live webinar for the depth because that's where I wanted to improve the most.
  12. Civil/Structural 2nd time Pass Morning - I felt confident I got about 34. There were 3-4 that was 50/50 on and 2-3 that I just guessed. Afternoon - I felt confident I got about 24. There were about 6-7 where I narrowed it down to 50/50 and about 7-8 where I just flat up guessed. The two keys for me passing this time vs last fall was 1) knowing the breadth portion backwards and forwards to where I left myself some wiggle room in the afternoon. 2) solving the simple conceptual questions in the afternoon first and working problems easiest to hardest.
