Now James, don't be holding it in like that.  Tell us what you really think.

This discussion has focused far too much on the SE exam rather than the CE.
The real problem is that taking a test that you can pass without answering
any structural questions entitles you to design buildings.  The CE test is a
worthless measure of ability and knowledge.

In America, most believe that anyone with a license is capable of doing the
work -- otherwise, how would they have a license?  What about quality
issues?  That, my fellow engineers (CE & SE), is a very different subject.
