Professional Engineers Licensure Exam

Professional Engineers (PE) exam is December 1, 2018, for April Exam 2019, and June 1, 2019, for the October exam. These Dates are for Massachusetts board. Check your local state board for the application dates you haven’t started preparing for the exam it is time to get into your review.

I took 3 months to prepare and used the Lindberg book and worked through all sections and made a review notebook with processes and procedures for common problems that I could encounter. I was working at a DOT designing bridges at the time. This helped me in some areas i.e. Mechanics of Materials, Statics, Steel Structural design, concrete design, etc.

I developed a roadmap of what I needed to cover and followed it. I worked problems at night for two to three hours, took time on weekends to make sure I covered all the material and had time left over in the last few weeks to clarify things in my own mind. This exam is 2 to 3 minutes per problem. You need to know what to do when you see the problem. We can provide assistance in planning, assisting with review materials, study plans and lectures in Civil, Mechanical Engineering.

Your licensing board may have additional requirements. Special accommodations are available for examinees who meet certain eligibility criteria and sufficiently document their request.

When I was preparing in Sprong 1986 for the EIT exam a review course was offered on campus that met once a week with Civil Engineering professors lecturing on their area of expertise i.e. Statics, Wastewater, Hydraulics, Geotechnical engineering etc.. I also bought the Lindberg review (EIT) manual. I passed the EIT/FE exam with all this preparation.
