  1. My unbiased study tip for all first time takers and people who have failed, start studying now and i have the books that will help you for sale these study books for the "Fundamentals of Engineering Test". My price is $100 (OBO) via paypal and I pay for shipping. Ideally I sell them all at once, but also willing to sell single books. I passed the test the first time, so these books really are all you need. EIT Reference Manual 8th Edition (this still is the current version despite its age) http://ppi2pass.com/...anual-eit8.html Solutions Manual for EIT Reference Manual 8th edition SI units (this still is the current version despite its age) http://ppi2pass.com/...nual-eitsi.html FE Review Manual 2nd Edition (they sell a new updated one now, but I doubt it is much different - this one is a bit worn out as you see on the picture) http://ppi2pass.com/...nual-eitsi.html These are for environmental afternoon section only, ideally they get sold with the ones above. but I'm willing to talk to sell them separately both together: Environmental Sample Questions and solutions (they sell a new updated one now, but I doubt it is much different) http://ppi2pass.com/...nual-eitsi.html Environmental Specific Review (this still is the current version despite its age) http://ppi2pass.com/...-exam-dsen.html

  3. i still have all the books... I'm not asking for the world, name your price.
  4. i would sell them for $140 all together or let me know what you are willing to pay.
  5. i lowered the prices. All prices inc. shipping and via paypal. they are about 5 years old. All but one are in really good shape: These are for everyone taking FE test and I like to sell them together if possible (to save shipping/paypal fee) EIT Reference Manual 8th Edition (this still is the current version despite its age) $70 Solutions Manual for EIT Reference Manual 8th edition SI units (this still is the current version despite its age) $25 FE Review Manual 2nd Edition (they sell a new updated one now, but I doubt it is much different - this one is a bit worn out as you see on the picture) $15 These are for environmental afternoon section only, ideally they get sold with the ones above. but I'm willing to talk to sell them separately both together: Environmental Sample Questions and solutions (they sell a new updated one now, but I doubt it is much different) $15 Environmental Specific Review (this still is the current version despite its age) $35 These are all the books I had for studying and passed the first time.

  9. I just came across my books from some years ago and best offer can have them. All prices inc. shipping and via paypal. they are about 5 years old.

  10. guys: some advice.... study by doing the "500" sample questions and do the practice exams under real world conditions. the big yellow book isn't really good for FE (and it is closed book anyway). I recommend doing (or attempting to) do all the sample questions with the allowed calculator and the NCEES supplied equation books only (like in the real test) I took the FE 4 years ago and passed at the first time (I'm a PE now...)... and don't recall 100% how the test was. but I almost only studied with the sample questions and exams... not the reference manual. As the name indicates, it is a reference manual... that you won't have available at the test. the 500 Lindeburg sample questions are partially harder than the test (by now you likely know how hard the real test is). Probably good to browse through the reference manual... but it is not really that useful for FE (the PE reference manual actually will be useful for PE test, since that is open book). If you have too much time, you can do the sample question from the reference manual after you did the 500 questions. good luck next time
  11. If you applied today (and started taking the exam this year) and still didn't pass the exam in 2020, you really should not get a license, ever. Degree or no degree...
  12. I'm all with you...at my work any time something new comes up they scream " what about training?". where I'd like to respond "what about figuring it out yourselves, you call yourself engineers?". Even when we switched from Office 2000 to Office 2007, half of the people spent all day complaining about how the training was insufficient and they didn't know how to use it. Grrrr... There should be a solution for people who don't have an ABET degree. Maybe there shouldn't be an easy solution, but a solution. I have a German degree and a US graduate degree, and had the issue that the state board almost let not write me the test because of none was ABET accredited (ABET mainly accredits US bachelor programs, and most foreign engineers with even US PhD degrees struggle with that...) And the education system is only going downwards.... Did you just have a high school degree or a technical college degree and taught the rest yourself and by working? As you know, alll you learn in school are the basics to be able to figure it out yourself later. The world is changing and engineers constantly need to adapt. Obviously the basics stay the same, but I can see how someone who is bright and driven to figure it out can be a good engineer without school. just the way how you grew up (did you always wanted to know how things work and raided the library to find out) makes a huge difference.
  13. You make a good point and as I pointed out, there always will be someone smart enough not needing to go to school. After all, someone who didn't go to school must have founded the first school. but the majority of people... The individuals you mentioned didn't really design structures or buildings that could have endangered the public. Henry Ford for example was a businessmen (with 2 dailed businesses before his succesful business) and maybe we can call him industrial engineer (and he likely had staff that did implement all his assembly line ideas). Industrial engineers working in a car company also today don't need to be licensed. Today maybe 40% of people go to some college (although I doubt that, since they count the Phoenix etc. as a real school), back in the day of Lincoln, 99% of the population were farmers, so it was normal back then to teach yourself if you wanted to know something. Mostly a prospective engineer became an apprentice with a senior engineer unless he attended one of the few engineering schools.
  14. I totally agree. not without reason most jurisdiction require education AND experience. Is there a guy who is smart enough to teach himself from books and experience... sure, someone will be able to be a good engineer without going to school. but majority of engineers really need things to be taught, at least the basics. I'm spending all day fixing mistakes done by people who either never attended engineering school, or never graduated. the worst people are the ones that say they are right and their only argument is "I've been doing this for 20 years". Guess what, it is not experience if you are always wrong. the problem i see in consulting is, that they always have one PE who attends the meetings (or at least the interview), but the actual work is done by non-college graduated people.
  15. when i hire consultants i require them to state their education and also ask them int he interview. I'm the only one in my firm who does that, though.
