Supplies

Supplies

  • Calculator requirements are online at NCEES site and should have been in your registration booklet

  • You will get a new Handbook, so don’t bring yours

  • Do not bring your own pencil or eraser – yes, this means you will have a really cool mechanical pencil to take home at the end of the day as proof of your efforts!

Tips

  • Get to know the layout of the reference handbook

  • Answer every question – use your engineering logic to narrow down multiple choice answers (work backward if you need to)

  • “Harvest your points” – answer the easy ones for you first, then spend more time on the others

  • Go with your gut choice


Exam day

Exam Day

  • Get a good night’s sleep and eat breakfast!

  • Don’t forget your Admit ticket and photo ID – or your scientific calculator!

  • Where a watch if you are unsure of the location of clocks

  • Layered clothing to stay comfortable

  • Arrive early, but not too early

  • Don’t stress out – you either know it or you don’t at this point
