New Features at Tupmechanical.com: CHAT and FORUM

Dear valued readers,

When I started Mechanical Engineering Blog Site about a year ago, my sole purpose is to provide a way for me to share my ideas as a mechanical engineer to the world especially to students and fellow professionals. But as time goes by, Mechanical Engineering Blog Site has grown from being a simple personal blog, to a website that provides free online review materials for those who will be taking the board exam on mechanical engineering.

With that growth, I decided to have my own domain name. Hence, last June 2010, from just being a free Blogspot subdomain (www.tupmechanical.blogspot.com) it became a www.tupmechanical.com. Along with this change is the creation of my own email address, admin@tupmechanical.com where you can directly email your concerns and questions to me.

The growth though, does not stop on domain name change. Today, I am formally introducing two (2) new features on this site. One is the CHAT WIDGET, powered by ShoutJax and the other one is the FORU…

Thoughts on Mechanical Engineer Board Exam September 2010

The Professional Regulations Commission has yet to announce the results of this year's second phase board exam for Registered Mechanical Engineers (RME), Professional Mechanical Engineers (PME), and Certified Plant Mechanic (CPM).

Upon its release, it will be immediately posted in this blog, so please stay tune. Based on previous exams, the results can come out as quick as one day of processing so it can be sometime tonight or tomorrow.

Meanwhile, try to sit down and relax. I am very much aware that the waiting period can be really hard. When I took the board three years ago, I had two days of intermittent sleep because of   worries about the result. But after the results came out, the excitement, the thrill, the nervousness, and the anxieties started to wane.

For those who will pass, please accept my warmest congratulations. For those who will not (of course, we all know that there's no 100% passing rate), accept the current situation but don't treat it…
