FE Exam yesterday!
For those of you who are not engineers: professional licensure in engineering is a four-step process - first, you obtain an engineering education (currently a Bachelor's degree, although I have heard a rumor that this will grow to a Master's in a decade or so); second, you take the eight-hour Fundamentals of Engineering exam to become an Engineer-In-Training; third, you obtain five years working experience in a position of responsibility; and fourth, you take the eight-hour Principles and Practice in Engineering exam to become a P.E.

The first I completed some time ago, and the second ... well, it will be approximately 120 days before I know, but I think I did well!

...and then I went home and slept like a log. (After checking the Interwebs, of course.) (:

I'm finishing up step three and moving on to step four next year. Did you take General for the first four hours and General also for the second or General/Mechanical?

They've changed the names to Other and Mechanical, but I took Mechanical - I wanted to avoid the biology questions. Of course, I ended up with the HVAC questions instead, but I managed - nearly everything else was stuff I was already knowledgeable about.

Ah, I was going to ask what KIND of engineering! Mechanical, then? What do you want to do with it?

I have no idea - I like teaching, though!
