    Planning on taking CBT, studying advice

    Thanks!- They don't give me a score (I think Texas does give a score, and there may be other states that do but I'm not sure)- only a "passed" in a green box.

    Planning on taking CBT, studying advice

    Well- it's done- as of now I feel about 90% certain on about 48 problems, 65% certain on about 12, and I know I got about at least 6 wrong. Not sure how my experience against everyone elses- or if I'm being too optimistic or pessimistic, but I will say its not the most pleasant of feelings.

    Planning on taking CBT, studying advice

    Well it's finally time- the day after tomorrow is my exam- after more than a year of studying, it's actually happening. I've gone through all my practice exams at least 4 times- and while I am not burnt out, I do feel like I've hit a "limit" if that makes sense and really just want to spend the...

    PASS THAT EXAM DO NOT GIVE UP. NEVER EVER GIVE UP.

    Glad I came across this thread- I'm taking mine on the 28th, been studying a long time- but these last few weeks have been stressful for me and my family: my grandfather passed the end of last month, daughter entered terrible 3s and is driving mom insane, work is brutal and been operating on 6...

    Planning on taking CBT, studying advice

    Thank you again everyone for the sound advice and encouragement. I received approval from my state board to take the power PE exam (october 28th). Now for a steady five week diet of practice questions and praying lol!

    Timeline for application

    Hello All, Just curious if anyone would know, I have my application in with the Ohio Board( it has said "In Review" for about 2 weeks). Does anyone know how long it will take to hear back if I am eligible for an exam? This might seem like a mundane question but I just want to give feedback on...

    Eng. Pro Final Exam Problem 12

    Since this is a delta-wye xfmr, so phase A on the secondary side is paired with AB on the primary delta- hence current will be on both A and B on the primary side. A phase of the secondary doesn't have a source of current downstream.

    Planning on taking CBT, studying advice

    That seems like an effective method- I like the flagging technique. I also give myself about 48 hours before I'll try a practice problem I got wrong again just to ensure everything I collected "sticks"

    Planning on taking CBT, studying advice

    Well that's a bummer- glad to hear you passed though! I'm hoping to get confirmation from my state board to take the exam soon- getting that would make preparing for the exam much much easier I think.

    Planning on taking CBT, studying advice

    Good points about the code- I don't have the NESC, but I have the NEC (print and pdf) and NFPA-70E. I try to use the ctrl-f function on the PDF as much as I can in case it is in a more "obscure" section of the NEC. Same with the NCEES reference sheet- my pdf copy I have sections highlighted if...

    Planning on taking CBT, studying advice

    Awesome- thank you for the feedback. Aside from time invested and scores on practice exams, I'm not sure what other performance indicators are worth checking. I'm also doing a minimum of 10 practice problems a day (either from practice exams or example questions) or up to 30-40 a day.

    Planning on taking CBT, studying advice

    Hello everyone, I've been lurking this site a few months now, I'm applying to take the CBT (don't have a date yet, or even confirmation from my state board) and I am currently still preparing for the power CBT. So far I have: 1) obtained the ncees practice exam booklet and have done about 3...

    OH PE License by Comity

    Oh congrats! I'm applying for the PE examination myself (don't have a license yet) so I didn't know how long it takes the Ohio board to cycle through applications- I just put mine in at the end of July.

    PE exam application

    Did you happen to have an NCEES record that had your background details in it? I made one with all my references, work experience, transcript, etc.- I think some boards access them to verify data, which I think helps expedite things. But again, new guy here- still learning all the ropes.

    PE exam application

    Thanks akyip- good to know. My supervisor was just curious of a timeline (as well as me trying to plan on when I should expect to schedule my exam). From what little I have read, it sounds like there is quite a range of expected dates. Yours was via paperwork?- my application was purely online-...
