Taking the PE exam has been one of the hardest and most fulfilling things I have done in my career so far. It was challenging but I think with the right amount of practice, preparation, and strategy, you can pass the exam.

If you have not heard the previous podcast I highly recommend you go back and check them out. I would recommend you start with “Why Taking the PE Exam Made Me a Better Engineer ”, then “How to Prepare, Beat Anxiety, and Rock the PE Exam with Vanessa ”, and lastly check out “How to Make the Most Out of Your Career After Passing the PE Exam with Isaac Oakeson

Today on PE day. I wanted to take sometime to acknowledge all the PEs and soon to be PE out there. I hope you enjoy this episode and hopefully it helps you better prepare for the exam
