    Ladder Logic Problem

    A good one to look at I think: Here's one I got wrong and I actually started posting it because I couldn't figure out why.  I took this under simulated (timed) conditions.  This is an example of what happens when your brain isn't thinking clearly.

    Battery Question

    I got this question wrong (I had to re-load the set of questions so I could see them).  Is there reason why choice 'B' is more correct than choice 'D' (my original answer)?

    Calculator Malfunction Ti-36X Pro

    I'm pretty sure Zach Stone recommend buying two calculators and bringing them to the exam.  At first I thought this was overkill, but now I know why he said it.

    Question For Those Who Have Taken Exam in TN

    This is a question for anyone who has taken the PE exam in Tennessee: I've read the "ExamineeGuide_June 2018" pdf on the NCEES website, and they tell you what you're allowed and not allowed to bring to the exam.  I understand all reference materials must be bound (not loose or stapled).  I get...
