Check out my NEW PE Exam Guide. It will help you prepare for the exam without sacrificing your life. From science-based study techniques to a study plan, you will have everything you need to pass the PE Exam.
NCEES has been transitioning all of its PE exams from the good old paper exam to the computer-based testing (CBT) format since 2014. But the question is: are you ready for the changes that come with it?
Are the specifications different in a CBT exam so you have new technical content to study? Is it still an 80-question, 8-hour exam with separate morning and afternoon sessions? Are the available testing windows the same as in the paper exam?
Today, we’ll answer all your questions by diving into what did and didn’t change as the PE exam goes computer-based, pointing out the positives and negatives of each. And most importantly, its impacts on not only how you take the exam, but also how you prepare for it.
