  • 1.  Environmental PE Exam

    To parallel another recent post about the PE exam, I would like to start a separate discussion about the Environmental exam.  I am planning to take the Environmental Engineering PE test next year.  Since this test is now online it is no longer an open book test, so you cannot bring any reference materials with.  Can those who have taken the Environment test in this format share their experience?  How did you prepare for the test?  Is there any thing you wish you knew or wish you did differently?

    Hi Nancy,

    Similar to when the EIT exam was moved to being on a PC, do you know if they also provide a PDF of reference material? 

    If they do, I would assume they will also provide the same PDF in advance to practice with it. If my assumptions are correct, it might make sense to work on the NCEES practice exam using the NCEES PDF, and making sure you know where to find everything you need. 

    Its a simplistic suggest and I hope someone else who's actually taken it chimes in. But I hope it helps. Good luck!
