Well I never saw a abacus at the test but I did use my big circular slide rule.  I do remember having a lot of old tests where I did every problem prior to the test.  Only took it once.

Of course it was stone, you got me :).  
You may also remember that at that time one could only use abacus at the test.

Steve -


Are you SURE it was pink, yellow or blue PAPER and not pink, yellow or blue STONE?

I clearly remember buying the actual exam samples from the board - they were like $5 per year, printed on pink, yellow, or blue paper - for my PE exam.

For some inexplicable reason I threw all of those away after I passed the PE test, and came to regret it while studying for the SE.

Thanks for the link,

Hi Steve

I don't recall PE exam questions being public information. However, Cali SE exam was public until 1995. Since then, with the exception one time, which board made some of them some samples available in 2007:

 , the rest has all been unavailable to the public.

Good morning,


Did anybody keep the copies of old sample PE or SE exams that used to be available from the Boards (for example, California board) about 10 years ago?

I cannot  believe that I discarded mine... Please let me know privately,
