    Just took the CBT Civil Construction PE exam in TX

    I am not familiar with that book and I meant to pick up a copy after the last exam. However, if I find out next week that I failed, I'm buying a copy and reading it cover to cover. This was my 4th attempt and I'm hoping that my results will mirror yours; I feel horrible but maybe I passed and...

    I read about your recent test attempt and the accompanying disaster. Terribly sorry to hear of your misfortune! I am hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

    Just took the CBT Civil Construction PE exam in TX

    I took the PE CBT again yesterday. This one was much, much harder than the first CBT I took in April. Last time I tested, I got done over an hour early in the afternoon session. This time, I finished the exam with about ten minutes to spare. There were at least 10 questions on the exam that...

    Just took the CBT Civil Construction PE exam in TX

    I sent the initial application back around the beginning of March. I mailed my SERs and references the second or third week of April. The background check was the first week or May. In contrast, my former coworker had to apply to take the test a fourth time and from the time he applied to the...

    Just took the CBT Civil Construction PE exam in TX

    Well, I got an email from TBPELS on Friday. They approved my work experience and have allowed me to retest another 3 times. Yay, another $375..........

    Failed the PE 3rd time TX- testing out of state?

    I’m in the same boat. Took it three times and failed. You can apply for your PE license with TBPELS and in doing so, request permission to test. If they allow you to retest, then you are granted 3 more attempts.

    TX PE License - Construction Scheduler experience

    I work in Texas and I know a construction scheduler/superintendent who was allowed to sit for the PE exam. No engineering degree and all his experience was construction related. They required him to take the EIT and have 8 years of experience in his SER, but he passed the exam and he is a PE.

    He already passed in Texas. He had to request permission from the Texas board of engineers before he was allowed to test the fourth time.

    Just took the CBT Civil Construction PE exam in TX

    Well, despite feeling pretty good about the exam, I failed again. The diagnostic is probably the most meaningless thing I've ever seen. You don't even know how many questions you answered incorrectly in a given category. That was the third one, so now I have to request permission to retest.

    Just took the CBT Civil Construction PE exam in TX

    The search tool is very useful, almost necessary. I used it constantly in the exam. I had reviewed the codes very little before the exam, thus if you take the time to read up in advance, it may not be as crucial. The code book layout was the guide/textbook taken directly from exact industry sources.

    Just took the CBT Civil Construction PE exam in TX

    Thank you! It was a difficult enough exam that by the time I left the building, I was so brain fried that I couldn't tell you exact questions or details from the exam even if I wanted to. 🙂 As to the codes: LOTS of focus on ASCE 37. There were even a couple of questions that referenced ASCE37...

    Just took the CBT Civil Construction PE exam in TX

    What an improvement over the paper exams! Yeah, I said it. I took the P&P in April 2021 and October 2021 for water resources and I failed them both magnificently. I switched to Construction because of my background, in retrospect I'm glad I did. The nuts and bolts of the exam: The NCEES...
