  1. Hi All! Has anyone with their Structural Engineer (SE) License seen a significant increase in pay or earning potential after being approved? If yes, can you tell me which state you're in? I am planning to take the exam next year, but I worry it's superfluous for work in NYC. My company doesn't give any special promotion to those w/ that license, just more work 😕 with no over time pay. Thanks!
  2. So I am having some trouble understanding this simple question thats on the NCEES Practice Exam. Wouldn't member b have a horizontal for pointing up of 100 kips since there is an external load of 100kips pointing down? The question and solution is attached. Would appreciate anyone's explanation on this. (FYI, I am taking the transportation PM portion) Doc2.pdf

    SE exam transfer from one state to Illinois: I currently live in Illinois and I am planning to give the 16hr SE exam in April 2021. I will only be two weeks short of deadline to give the test in Illinois before the NCEES registration deadline. Illinois board doesn't approve the exam application until the work experience criteria is met but they are OK if the exam is given in another state and I can apply Illinois SE license once I meet the required criteria. So, I am planning to give the test in another state say Wisconsin (close by). But I heard Illinois board is relatively strict. I wou
  4. Hello Members, The discussion on Surveying classes, books are quite old on the forum and was wondering if anyone of had recent experience with the test and prep classes in 2020. I am looking for recommendations for Surveying in terms of books, classes etc. And also any general rule of thumb wrt to gap between the seismic and surveying test?
  5. Hello, I took the PE-Civil-Structures test in October 2018 and April 2019. For October test I could hardly study for 20 days and was sick on the exam day. Ended with a score of 48. For April test , I prepared really well. Spent lot of time in going through resources I had and again ended with the same identical score of 48. I have attached two diagnostics. Kindly review and let me know how should I prepare this time. These are the prepration material I hadused Breadth : CERM, All-In-One PE Exam Guide: Breadth and Depth,Indranil Goswami, Breadth Practice Tes
  6. Anyone else taking the exam April 2019? I was hoping we could compare study materials and get some dialogue going about what to bring/expect. I'll start... What did I study? Cerm (latest), Structural Depth Reference Manual by Williams, School of PE notes (ancient), A book of practice questions by Gruttadauria. What am I planning to bring? Cerm, IBC, ASCE, AISC, ACI, steel textbook, concrete textbook, notes & practice questions, and that's it. + Calculator & watch and that's it for extras. I would estimate I have done about 70 morn

  8. I have taken the PE Civil - Structural twice and the following is how I did: April 2017 in Texas with a score of 26/40 AM & 22/40 PM October 2018 in California with a score of 22/40 AM & 21/40 PM. The first round I studied more and used only School of PE. I had three co-workers that used their material and passed the first time so I thought I had a shot, but boy was I wrong. I studied an average of 3-4 hours per night after work and 8 hours per day on weekends. For the second time, I didn't have time at all to prepare. I recently relocated to AZ and my com
  9. I actually have a YouTube channel where I give tips on the F.E. exam, I also go over some F.E. civil problems. If you want to check the channel, here is the link: Don't forget to subscribe, and if you have any problem that you would like me to go over, leave it in the comments below the videos. Thank you for watching 😊
  10. example 116.4 seismic load. Why using n=43.5/h^(1/9) to obtain the first period (1/n), not using T=Ch^x? The results from the two equations are quite a bit, one is 0.85 and the other is 0.5x. The former equation is mentioned in wind load, which has some more limitations, such as the height of building and wind direction.
  11. Unfortunately, I failed the PE structural depth exam again. I will be attempting it for the 3rd time this coming April 2018. I am very frustrated and worried I will not be able to pass. I did not graduate with civil engineering and do not practice structural engineering in my profession. However, I did take a number of structural analysis courses and have a higher interest in learning structural than the other Civil depths. But, the structural depth is kicking my ass right now. I am in the utility design industry so many have suggested doing construction depth. I feel that I am already

    How’s everyone set? At this point just looking forward to getting this over with after 3 months stuck in the books every weekend. And I hear Friday is going to be 80 degrees here in NY. Typical exam weather!
  13. Congrats to everyone who passed. However I was unsuccessful with a score of 48/80. What's your failing score?
  14. I'm currently designing a residential apartment building. It is set up with 2 "block" types. One is a 2 story version; the other is a 3 story. CLT Floor system, so I'll be analyzing it as a rigid diaphragm. The architect has multiple combinations of these "blocks" to form a couple variations of the building. I'm hoping to be efficient with my design and calculations and be able to analyze the "blocks" separately as laterally and vertically independent systems that just happen to be adjacent to each other, but I'm wondering how others interpret the code re: seismic joints required in betw
  15. As the quantity and weight of reference books kept adding up in the weeks leading to the exam, I started to get a little worried about how I would get all of it into the exam with me. I also didn't want to waste any time during the test stacking and unstacking books. My solution was to build a book carrier between study breaks. Building it was actually a good stress relief. The picture below is what the rough draft looks like. During the exam, I laid it down on the ground next to me and had easy access to my books. I didn't have to work to keep them organized or fight to get them out (so
  16. I signed up for the EET on demand course (structural depth) and starting it today. Is there a class schedule that I can follow? I feel like I’m missing something. I was given the instructions on how to reach the videos and then the big binder and that’s it. I don’t even know where to start. The recording contents are in no particular order and I’m finding myself trying to search for the appropriate video title for the first section of the binder. I take it we just dive right in and start from beginning to end with what’s in the binder? Please help if any of you have taken the on demand c
  17. Hi All, I'm not a huge fan of taking classes to study for things, especially standardized exams. I feel like the most effective solution is to do as many sample problems as possible that are as similar to the exam as possible, that cover all subject areas. Some questions: 1.) Does anyone know of any good resources for sample exam problems? 2.) NCEES appears to have a single sample exam for the civil breadth + structural depth, do you know where we can find more? Are there different versions? 3.) My boss has a sample exam from NCE
