Try not to worry about taking the Computer Based Test and focus on passing the last Paper exam. Stay positive. I wish you the best! Don't worry about the CBT exam unless you have to.Seriously? I have been using the ce reference pdf to study for the last paper exam.
Its 300+ pages, a
Have you tried to use those pdfs?
The ref guide for ce is 300+ pages and not as good as the cerm imo.
If I have to search the formula book, and code books for tables, no way.
I'm hoping I'll pass this paper, but doubtful
Yes, I am using the PDFs to search and become familiar with all references I will have at my disposal during the exam. Searching through the references is part of studying whether you're taking the Paper or CBT exam.
I didn't have a choice to take the last paper exam in October 2021, so I'm going to have to take the CBT exam if I want my PE license. It's better to be positive about the tests (whether taking Paper or CBT) than to worry about the negatives.
**PS I have already found errors in the NCEES Civil PE Reference Manual. I notified NCEES of the errors and was told they will not correct the errors prior to the first CBT exam. If I was taking the October paper exam, the only thing I would change is I would bring the references listed at the end of the CBT Exam spec. Personally, the CERM did not help me when I took the exam in October of 2019, but we all have our own strategies for the exam.
