I passed this exam and I see that you did fine on the PM. Try to focus more on the morning part because for me the secret is doing good on AM questions (I guess I had at least 37/40). EET prepared me good for the morning in addition to a lot of practice problems. Good luck!
So you think the 20 on the PM is a fine score? I did not study anything for the PM portion and the "studying" I did for the morning seemed to not be anything like what was on the test. Basically my studying was refreshing topics and locating them in the reference manual. You think EET is worth the price? It seems kind of pricey to me..

It’s absolutely worth it, they walk you through everything, at least that was my experience for the transportation. The structural instructor wasn’t my favorite, maybe someone who has taken the structural depth course can chime in there but over all I thought the class was awesome.

My goodness.  That high.  Please do not lose hope.  You are almost there.  Good luck.
Going to take it again in April. Just a little frustrated, especially when I knew I missed 2 unbelievably easy questions in the AM session as soon as I walked back to my car. 

It was my 2nd time taking, and I thought the morning session was brutal compared to the last time, although I did better (28/40) this time around. Definitely need to do better in both AM/PM sessions, but I was super prepared this time around. I personally think there's definitely a little luck involved, in terms of the types of questions that may be asked or if you brought in JUST the right resource that may answer 1 question.

Heck, I brought in some really good resources, and I found a question in the AM session that was asked that both of my books offered slightly different answers, both of which were answers on the exam. 

Better luck to all next time!

Civil - WRE. 50/80

This was my second time taking it and I'm extremely disappointed. I scored 100% in five areas. 21/40 in the morning portion and 29/40 in the afternoon. I felt the morning exam this time around was harder than the first time and my score reflected that. There were so many random theory questions that could have went either way and you couldn't have prepared yourself for those questions. I did score poorly in some very easy sections and hopefully the third time around I will finally be able to put this test to bed.

Is it just me or do some of theses scores seem high for failing? In the past I haven't seen many failing scores above 50.

I took EET(am and pm (WRE)) as well and highly recommend it. (Though I agree about the structural instructor for the am series - he was hard to follow). I doubt I could have passed without this course!

Best of Luck.  You are almost there.  I took the EET classes for depth in construction this round and I must say they were helpful.  I would recommend taking a prep course just to keep yourself serious and invested.  I saw the "green" light this time and I hope you see one too next time.  I have been on the other side more than once and it was painful, but keep yourself invested again.  And yes I agree with you there is an element of luck.  I also personally feel that you should have Goswami with you, it has helped me.

AM exam is very easy. I guess I had 39/40 or even 40/40. I didn't prepared well for PM exam because I didn't do much structural work. I worked in Civil but have no any water treatment education & experiences. I chose to take structural PM exam. I guess I had 18/40 in PM. I knew I passed when I finished my AM exam in 2.5 hours.
