To do this, multiply the number of items by the performance divided by 15, and add them together. 4+3+4*.69+6*.34+7*.51+7*.38+8*.51+4*.63+5*.58+6*.49+7*.47+9*.52=38.44 Add up the total number of items: 70 Now divide: 38.44 /...

    Passed the PE? How dd you do it?

    TI 36x Pro Used table function to approximate, used exponential regression, reviewed previous calcs for accuracy. Set up problems with fractions to see the inch-ft-yard conversions in-place. Solver works great. Don't handicap yourself with a cheap calc.

    New Member; Old Engineer

    Congratulations on getting your RE (Retired Engineer) license. Not sure if I'll ever get that one. Hope you can avoid the DE (Deceased Engineer) license for a while.

    How many times can you ask your employer to pay for your PE exam and study materials?

    Usually once, if you're lucky it's pass or fail; if not lucky it's only if you pass. If it's pass or fail, and you fail, and get another job, then the next employer may pay for another attempt. In any case, I don't know of any employer who will pay for you to take the same exam more than once.

    New member EIT

    bramsey, it's called decoupling. About half of the states decoupled the exam from experience. I highly recommend Maine. No board approval, and you can take the PE exam in any state. You need to have an NCEES Record with college transcripts showing you graduated, and an EIT certificate. After...

    Questions on Requirements For PE and SE Exams

    No experience required to take the FE. PE experience depends on the state. I'm not in a state that has SE, but I imagine PE would be required. Look into Maine for the FE. No board approval required, and you can take the test remotely in any state.

    Can I give exam in one state and apply for license from another state

    For 1, Yes in most cases. Some states have a residency requirement, so obviously it won't work in that case. Definitely check with the state board. For 2, Texas requires a Texas EIT certificate. Use the NCEES record. Send SC results to NCEES, then from there send it to Texas.
