Hello LSU. This is really a great forum. I'm excited that I found it. So, briefly, about myself. I'm a highway engineer, but I've also done a fair bit of survey work. Did some field work early on in my career, then went inside to design roads, then did some office surveying work with plats, and drawings, and easements, and all that fun stuff. Then got back out to the field a bit more as a crew chief, then back in the office for more engineering, then... well you get the picture. Bottom line is, here 18 years or so after I first drove a hub or held a rod I'm finally almost licensed as a surveyor as well as licensed as an engineer.
I passed the PS exam this past April and now I'm taking the state specific exam this October. I didn't take them together, because I'm an idiot, and didn't realize I had to sign up for them separately... I know, yeah, I'm that guy.
Anyway, in my engineering life, I'm an admin on a board called engineerboards.com. It's sole purpose is to help people get ready for the PE exams (and we like to have fun there too with off color jokes and stupid stuff). But I haven't been able to find much in the way of a similar board for getting ready for the surveying exams. So, I started one. feel free to check it out. http://surveyorboards.com.
Also, I started a surveyorboards.com group on this site. Anyway, that's me. Thanks.
