What references are best to review to answer the dominantly qualitative questions on the PTOE. The ITE Review Course Modules and practice exam are largely quantitative and I think ITE could improve this by providing more qualitative question reviews. I don't think this exam is as easy as some presume to be. I find the current ITE materials insufficient, but will agree they provide good reference materials. Seismic Exam for California Civil Engineering PE review courses provide sample qualitative questions. Many know that if they can answer the qualitative questions, then they can pass that exam. My thoughts. I have already gone over most of the quantitative stuff already.
Sitting for my PTOE exam next month. I'm currently going through the ITE PTOE refresher course, there doesn't seem to be much guidance on how to study outside of this. Is there anything that you wish you would have studied or read up on outside of this, that you think would have helped during the test?
I totally agree. I suspected that during my 2nd attempt at the PTOE Exam this past February. The qualitative questions are quite tricky. Unlike IMSA Course Exams with more straight forward questions, this one has more tricky questions. I found the morning half to be quite mentally exhausting. I think ITE could do a better job with more pertaining to the qualitative portions. The quantitative portions which seem to be covered in their review course modules 1-6 seems more pertaining towards traffic engineering mathematics/mechanics based fundamentals and they only take up like 30-40% of the entire exam!!!
