PE Civil Structural October 2019


Recommended Posts

I think I did alright on mine!

I think my score should be 34 +- 3 for AM and 31 +-3 for PM.  I was able to answer 37/40 AM and 34/40 PM pretty confidently.  If I screw up on 20% of them, I would still pass with 56/80 (passing score looks to be 52/80 based on looking through previous posts?).  I am keeping my fingers crossed, hoping that I don't mess up on over 20% of the questions.

Looks like exam results will be released around early Dec?

PE Civil: Structural in Maine for me.

Breadth: NCEES practice exam (2014) was a good measuring stick. I primarily used the FE Reference Manual if I needed a formula and if I didn't know what to do, I used the Index on Lindeburg's CERM to search for a keyword. I used 2.75 of the 4 hours.

Depth: NCEES practice exam seemed somewhat easier than the exam itself. Perhaps that is just a function of the humongous range of subject matter NCEES can test from. I was able to answer questions that I had no idea on by searching the Index/Glossary of that specific design code. I used 3.75 of the 4 hours.

Side note: my poor suitcase barely survived the transit of the 9-10 design codes plus the CERM manual... I was envious of the other disciplines who only needed 1-2 design codes.

I felt like it was not too bad, but I had studied a lot. I took the EET class on demand which was very helpful. I did not watch the depth videos for concrete, wood, masonry or bridges. I am in bridge design and have a good amount of concrete experience so I wanted to focus on loading and steel. Having two binders that pretty much had the entirety of what I needed was very nice. I was not expecting to need to search the index so much. I think I searched just fine though. I'm in Texas so I am interested to see my actual score. I took a collapsible wagon with all my book which still barely fit.

So I felt pretty confident on the morning section. Things were just clicking along and working great. 

Afternoon felt like I got hit by a cement truck. I went through marked each question as Easy, Medium, or Hard. I think my main issue was the first few I marked as easy and tried to do I got hung up and should have remarked them as medium and come back. Alas, I wasted time on them and got flustered for the rest of the PM session. Additionally, just did not anticipate the types of questions I encountered (not sure if I can go into more detail than that...). 

However, we shall see. I keep fluctuating back and forth between "I Passed" and "I should just start studying now"

Morning: Fair. Used School of PE references, CERM, and maybe 1 or 2 testmasters references. Had to guess on 1 or 2 problems.

Afternoon: Fair. A couple of them problems slapped me in the face, but I felt like I was able to hunker down and take a real shot at a lot of them. Used way less references in the afternoon than I thought I would. Finished faster than I did the morning because I either knew what I was doing or I didn't.

This wait on the scores gets worse by the day. Im predicting Dec2. What do y'all think?

I was able to get my hands on SOPE morning notes from a coworker.  I took the EET depth portion for structural.  The EET binder helped a lot with the last PE exam.
