How fitting is it that the most active person on the forum (or during any wait) was also the first person in the nation to get their results.

Coincidence? I think not.
If we had any more P&P exams, then this spam cycle would be the absolute proof we needed that spamming worked!

Anyone have a suggestion on how long to wait before taking the CBT civil after my second fail today?
As someone who studied for the pen and paper electrical exam only to have to switch gears to the CBT exam, it's not the same preparation.

Your previous practice was probably based on solving problems quickly using whatever references you had. On the CBT exam, all you have is the reference sheet PDF they give you on screen and your calculator. It is a different exam where the time constraint is not always a factor for the average test taker. With the PDF, you can search terms and quickly find a formula or definition just by using the search function.

Theoretically the exam is going to cover the same topics but not to the extent that would be previously. The CBT exam is intended to be answered mostly by what is given to you on the reference sheet and cardinal knowledge of the basic principles of your discipline (which may or may not be on the reference sheet already). You should take a look at the exam specifications and see if there are any areas not really on the reference sheet that might still be on the exam. For instance, protective devices are on the electrical power exam but hardly mentioned in the reference sheet.

Long answer short, I would recommend you take at least two months or more to refresh yourself on the material and get familiar with every page of the reference sheet. As well as any codebook PDFs that might be on your exam. And you will probably need to do some practice runs using just the references they will give you on the exam and your calculator.

I’m really bad with words and making anything sound remotely eloquent…but I’ll do my best…
I raise a glass to everyone…Those who have their results and those who don’t. To everyone who passed, and especially to everyone who failed. Every single one of you are all rockstars who kick serious ass and are so amazing!!!
Here’s to the end of the long wait WTTS era. Having the support of this community of wonderful people has truly brought me joy. Mostly, here’s to @RBHeadge PE for doing an INCREDIBLE job bringing us all together exam after exam and guiding and informing us and putting in soooo much work it’s insane! You are a true hero!! We appreciate you more than you know!!
Finally, here’s to all the spammers. Even though we didn’t break the spam record, we did a heckin’ fantastic job this spam season!! I had a blast spamming with all of you!!!
I plan to stick around and win EB Mafia, chat with the ladies, and try to help support future test takers. I only hope I can help people as much as all of you have helped me.
Thank you everyone!!! ❤️

Hahahaha Heidi put the group together so it’s understandable you didn’t realize it! I only knew it was you in the group chat because your avatar you used to have on here matched your profile pic in the chat!!

What’s your prediction? One more week for se results, similarly to April 2021 cycle?
From NCEES news:
December 1–3: PE Structural Scoring Workshop Virtual

Sounds like we will definitely get SE results in the next week, but I really hope to get it on Friday!!!
