They can rebuild me, They have the technology

Ok, maybe reworking defective parts is a more actuate statement, either way last friday I got shot in the face with a laser and it gave me super powers.

The PE Exam: My Brain Hurts

April 9, 2011

Yesterday I packed up all my books and drove to Lincoln for the Professional Engineering Exam. The four hour morning session over general mechanical engineering started at 7:15am so I had to leave the house at 5:30am. The morning session consisting of 40 questions over a wide range of mechanical engineering topics, went fairly well. There was a lot of HVAC questions…I don’t like HVAC. We were give a one hour lunch break then, the four hour afternoon session covering a more specific area of engineering started, for me it was Mechanical Systems and Materials. The afternoon test was more difficult than I thought it would be and on hour seven I was starting to run out of time and just ended up guess on a couple that I really didn’t know how to do anyway. All in all I think I think is could go either way, I feel much better then I did after taking the FE exam and I passed that one, but I think this one may be graded harder.

Thanks for everyones well wishes and support, now I have 8-10 weeks to wait until I get the results.
