Passed the APEGA NPPE

I had this doomed N. P. P. E. last Apr. and to the date I had read those damn books and sample questions and talked to a few people because I certainly didn't want to fail again. I had made a stupid mistake by not writing right after the failing time and had to compensate. 
So went to the session early and sat and waited. The usual instruction was given and the usual assholes came and went and needed guidance like grade 5 kids. As soon as I opened the question book and read the first one I realised that I would experience something different from what I had expected. I'm not allowed to reveal the questions and I'm not going to do that but I had busted my hump over complicated topics such as Tort Law, Bonds, Contracts, Common Contract Issues, Insurance, Lien, Claims and other subjects similar to those but most of the questions had come from Safety, Ethics, Environment, Registration, Practice and similar subjects, the ones that I had barely studied! So I went on and on to the time that I had almost 15 min. to the end and finished and then went back and answered a few that I had skipped and answered those ones too and realized that I did not have anything else to do while still 10 minutes were left! I walked out and handed my answer sheet and left. When I saw the letter today, I almost felt joy and relief, both. I had already started studying for another exam so if I had failed this, there would have not been much motivation today to carry on.
I still have to wait 3 to 4 weeks to get another letter from APEGA to gain the right of the title, I guess, officially. And I had to study hard to pass ASQ CQE because that's no joke either. So remember I passed because I'm The Seeker and I won't get to give what I'm after, till the day I die! What I also have to point at is I had and still have a problem with concentrating and focusing. I overcame that by writing, more specifically typing notes. It help but didn't fix the problem completely. I guess whoever have multiple problems in life, will face the same issue. Strong people are just not distracted by the problems. I had to read parts multiple times for that reason. I remind me of that TV series years ago in the old country called Aviccena. He was a Persian scientist of 10th century. In the series there is this episode that on his trip (He was on travel most of his life) he sits somewhere to take a rest and there is this shepherd and his herd around him. The shepherd sees him sitting in a dark and gloomy humour and walks up to him and asks him what his trouble is. Aviccena tells him that there is this book that he has read but has not understand much of it. The shepherd advises him to read for the 2nd, 3rd and maybe even 4th time and eventually as many time as needed until he understands. The scientist overwhelmed by the grunt's advice takes it and follows for the passion of his life, learning! If anyone needs to but APEGA used material such as books, notes, booklets, sample questions, etc, please leave a message with your e-mail address. I'll get in touch with you.
(Photo: These two books are the main sources for studying NPPE. There are a few other handouts which should be obtained. The books should be read thoroughly and completely)

Hi Tough Guy,

I have the same exam in 10 days, I have the summary notes I just need some sample question/answers (saba.aghassi@gmail.com).

and what is that TV series called? I am a Persian myself and surprised haven't seen that one yet!
Thanks in advance!

Saba

The Tough Guy said...

Saba,
I hope you study your NPPE better than the history of your original country! As I have written in the post, the TV Series (broadcasted years ago, I believe) was titled after a famous Persian scientist named Avicenna (that's how they know him in West). Check the following link out:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avicenna
And I will send you what I have.
Good Luck.

The Tough Guy said...

Troy and Pichaya,

I included you fellas in the e-mail. So hopefully you all receive the same reference and use it efficiently.
Good Luck to all of you guys.

The Tough Guy said...

Here's the problem: All you guys sit at home and study way before even coming to Canada or leave and sit at your desk not worried about job, mortgage, rent and other expenses and want to pass the NPPE and become a professional engineer so you could harvest all of the remaining jobs asking normal-5k salary! Forget it!

The so-called useful tips are partially said in this post. For the rest you have to get your ass to Canada, buy the books and study. The books are not available in electronic format. Don't be a cheapskate.

I'm not sure whether you're teasing me or APEGA(!) because there's nothing to be confused about! There are two main textbooks:
1) Practical Law (by Samuels and Sanders)
2) Practice and Ethics (by Andrews)
As well they are other references that are all available in APEGA's website and they even tell you when you register. Nothing more is required.

I think you'd better looked at other sources for sample questions and similar. I wrote the examination 3 years ago and things have changed ever since. I think even APEGA has sample questions which are available to new applicants.

Interesting! These people are saying they're in Canada and they're going to be Professional Engineers (or Geo-Scientists, which is not very likely). So as engineers they should be able to prove they're in Canada now without risking their privacy. Right? Go ahead!
