fe civil eit failed diagnostic california

Hi all,

I took the Civil FE for the first time last week and was pretty confident about it. I studied
only for about 3 weeks (during my winter break) about 5-6 hours a day. I created a solid
study plan and focused my time on my stronger subjects (Transpo, Hydraulics,
Geotech, Env, Mathematics, Ethics and Construction). I mainly used the videos from
Marshall University and my FE prep book (FE Civil Review - Michael Lindeburg) to brush
up on old subjects.

I was also pretty familiar with the cheat sheet thats given on the test, I used it during
my studying and knew where everything was during the test. Since I'm a pretty fast test
taker, I finished my exam about an hour early and only guessed on about a total of 10-
15 questions for the entire exam. I was very shocked and disappointed when I got my
results back this morning and unfortunately did not pass. Attached is my diagnostic
and as you can see, I did poorly in majority of the subjects. I think my failure could be
due to the fact that I didn't do enough practice problems? Although I felt confident
about my knowledge. 1/4

The FE Exam . Also if any of you have any study tips/advice I would really appreciate it.1/27/2018 Failed the Civil FE . Any clue? Members  http://engineerboards.Engineer Boards I want to take the test ASAP since the semester will start to pick up again and you all know how difficult it is to manage engineering 2/4 . work and studying for a huge exam like the FE. But I'm not sure if there is a time constraint between my first exam and my retake.  Thank you!      MIPE Posted January 18 Report post  Intern Based on the report. I've looked everywhere online and can't seem to find a solid answer. I am in the state of California so if any of you have any idea that would be really helpful! I know you can only take 3 exams during a 12 month period but not sure for the time between each tests. not sure why the number of questions is 100 and not 110.
