Tips to Pass the Chemical Engineering Board Exam

Do you want some tips to help you pass the Chemical Engineering exam?

Without a doubt, passing the Chemical Engineering Licensure Exam requires tons of preparation, hard work, persistence, and determination. You will surely do your part. You will study long hours, read a lot of books, and answer hundreds of pages of reviewers.

But do you want to hear useful tips, this time straight from those who already passed the Chemical Engineering boards? Here’s our collection of the best insights and tips from Chemical Engineering passers and topnotchers themselves!

Check out and adopt the following tips which we compiled from Gineersnow.

Tip #1: It is better to listen than to take notes.

It is good to jot down notes during discussion but it is better that you listen attentively during discussion rather than focusing on writing down notes.

During studying, it is good to write down concepts in your own understanding in bullet form rather than copy paste everything.

Tip #2: Solve engineering problems on your own.

When solving engineering problems, try solving them on your own. Do not easily give up; browse the internet only after you have your solution, and then check. If your answer is incorrect then try solving it again using the information you got from the internet. Else, if you really have no idea, better browse for similar problems and solve it.

Tip #3: Collaborate.

In engineering, it is helpful to collaborate with your fellows to solve difficult problems but be sure that you understand them.  After all, engineering is a collaborative profession.

Also, better have a cork board to put your formulas, and your greatest desires, like mine being a topnotcher. This way you easily remember them and stimulate your mind.

PRC Room Assignments: Chemical Engineering Exam (Nov 2019)

If you see a “Now Available!” note beside the exam venue, it means the PRC already released the list for that province or city and you may now view the room assignment. If it is not yet available, the PRC is still finalizing the school and classroom details. We will update this post once the official Room Assignments are released.

Here are additional useful tips we suggest you follow before the exam.

1. You’ll notice that even in just one school, several buildings and classrooms will be used as testing centers. To make sure that you proceed to the correct location, write down and take note of the exact Building, Classroom, and Seat Number assigned to you.

2. Before the day of the board exam, find out the address of the school or venue where you’ll be taking the exam. Research the actual location using Google Maps or a guide map to determine how to get there.

3. Better yet, try visiting the venue a few days before the board exam! Doing so will help you discover the best transportation or routes to take. If you simulate going to the venue beforehand, you’ll also have an idea how long it will take you to reach the exam center from your place. This allows you to change your transportation plans, if needed.

4. On the day of the exam, don’t be late! According to the PRC, examinees who will be late will NOT BE ALLOWED to take the board exam. We suggest you arrive at the exam venue at least one (1) hour before the start of the exam. This gives you enough time to locate the building, classroom, and seat number assigned to you.

What happens if you did not show up or weren’t able to take the boards? The answer is in this article: I registered but I did not take the board exam.
