PRC Room Assignments (Electrical Engineer Exam REE 2019)

If you see a “Now Available!” note beside the exam venue, it means the PRC has 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.

Tips Before Taking the Board Exam

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 the exact Building, Classroom, and Seat Number assigned to you on a piece of paper and bring this with you on the exam day so you can easily find your room assignment.

2. Prior to the actual day of the board exam, research the address of the school or venue where you’ll be taking the exam. Find out 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 exam. We suggest you arrive at the 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.

Tips to Pass the REE Electrical Engineer Exam

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

Without a doubt, passing the 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 licensure exam?

Here’s our collection of the best insights and tips from REE passers and topnotchers themselves!

Tip #1: Understand the principle behind formulas and equations.

“The best way to prepare for the board exam is to understand your undergrad subjects very well. If you understand the principle behind things, it’ll be easy for you to derive equations in times of mental block.

There are so many formulas to memorize, especially for auxiliary subjects (ESAS), that you really can’t memorize everything. Cover as much topics as possible since even though you’re not sure of what will come out, it will be easier to guess and eliminate some choices.”

– Tips from Martha Isabel Dealino, 2015 REE Exam No. 1 topnotcher with score of 90.95%

Tip #2: Don’t over-review; just answer letter C to questions you don’t know the answer to.

“Since the board exam is composed of multiple choice questions, here are my tips in answering the exam:

  • Usually the correct answer are the long answers;
  • Try to review more the objective-type questions. The questions with calculations are usually basic;
  • The choices in the questions are usually not thought well. So if you got an answer through any acceptable means, they are usually correct;
  • I usually answer letter “C” to questions that I really don’t know :)
  • Don’t over-review. You can’t study all. You’ll just forget the more important ones.”

– Tips from Eldion Vincent Bartolo, Topnotcher No. 5 in the 2015 REE boards with exam score of 89.90%

Tip #3: Use the process of elimination.

“I will let you in a secret: Some items in the Engineering Board Exams are designed NOT to be solved.

That is, the answer to some questions will be made quite obvious among the series of choices. Analyze the choices and evaluate the probability of their being the actual answer to the question.

For example, in a particular question, if impedance is given and it is mentioned that it is inductive, you know that the current angle will be negative or more than 180 degrees. Hence, you can already eliminate the choices with a positive value or those less than 180 degrees. Or if an item requires a whole number for an answer, take away those with decimal places. Some of the choices are too small or big to be the correct answer – take them out.”

Tip #4: Use the “Unit Cancellation” method.

“In case you forget a certain formula, you can always use the unit cancellation method to arrive at the answer.

For instance, you know that when a unit of measurement is divided by the same, they will cancel out. What remains will be the unit of measurement of your answer.

Let’s take a look at Work. The unit for Work is N•m. If, for instance, you are looking for the Force that is required to move a block of 1 kg to a distance of 1 m, you can see that some units of measurement can already be cancelled by just looking at the units of the given values.

So you need not worry if you don’t memorize the formulas, because Engineering is actually not about memorization but persistent practice to solve different problems.”

– Two (2) tips from Engr. Arnie de Guzman, RME, REE, PEE, who passed the Electrical Engineering board exam in his first take. Taken from the article “How to Pass the Engineering Board Exams: Tips from a Not-so Topnotcher” submitted to the website Gineersnow.com.

Tip #5: Do not study beyond 12 midnight.

“I know this sounds crazy to some … but hear my reasoning for this.

If you wake up at 8am and study up to 12 midnight, this will give you enough sleep which could lead to better retention on the formulas and on the subject. If you study beyond 12 midnight, you will need more time to sleep to recuperate your body’s energy, and that would actually waste some of your time.”

Tip #6: Borrow materials from previous REE takers.

“It would be great if you can borrow review materials from [your seniors in college who already passed the exam]. The materials would be a great help as it will serve as additional reference and, at the same time, boost your confidence since you already know what to expect if ever you will enroll in a review center.

For those who are not planning to enroll in a review center, this is a must for you. It will surely guide you on what topics to focus on and what type of questions to expect in the board exam.”
