Soalan rujukan utk exam PE (COE)

Assalam dan selamat malam,

Saya menerima banyak email dari sahabat yang memerlukan contoh jawapan untuk exam bertulis bagi menduduki PE exam. Disini saya lampirkan file yang boleh didownload terus. Saya tak dapat membalas email tuan/puan yang meminta contoh jawapan tersebut kerana banyak kerja pada waktu sekarang ini.

Lagi satu contoh untuk yang mintak standard format bagi experience summary, ingin saya nyatakan disini saya tak dapat nak bagi kerana format tersebut telah hilang semasa saya menggunakan laptop lama saya dulu. Contoh summary project boleh diminta dari mentor anda atau hubungi pihak IEM sendiri. Contoh jawapan standard yang saya attach kan disini adalah semasa saya amik exam pd tahun 2009 dulu. saya tak tahu sama ada ia berubah tau tidak. sekurang2 saya dpt membantu apa yang mampu sahaja. Good luck saya ucapkan, semoga berjaya...jangan lupa hanya doa sahaja yg dipinta agar saya sihat sentiasa dan murah rezeki...hehee, itu sahaja balasan yang diminta.. selamat berjaya

Sorry..tak boleh nak attach kan file sbb blogspot ni tak support file words :):), saya copy paste jer soalan dan jawapan tersebut, harap tuan/puan boleh print out jer pages blogspot ni heheeeee...
