24 General Guidelines for California Problems

25 Every state has an examination engineers must pass to become a registered professional engineer. In the past there have typically been six problems in a three hour segment of the California Professional Engineers Exam. Consequently one should be able to work each problem in 30 minutes or less. Many of these problems involve an intermediate calculation to determine the final answer.
