  1. I have several continuing education courses available at https://www.suncam.com/continuing-education/100259.html if you are interested. I plan on creating more on that site and a couple other sites. I also do seminar courses with ASME on occasion. Please help me spread the word. Thanks!!
  2. Get focused review on only the topics you need. Mechanical PE Academy offers video review courses where you pick the topics you need to study. Why pay for all FE exam or PE exam topics when you don't need them? Learn what YOU need to know. Learn more here

    Do I need more practice problems?

    Which practice exams are you using? I highly recommend the six-minute solutions exams. They best represent the level of difficulty of the actual exam. You can save 15% from PPI on the practice exam with this link. I also have some information on my website that may help http://www.mechanicalpeacademy.com/
  4. Check out my two-part continuing education course for professional engineers. The course covers everything engineers should know about designing welded connections. https://www.suncam.com/courses/100259-01.html for part 1 and https://www.suncam.com/courses/100259-02.html for part 2.
  5. https://suncam.com/ has good courses at low cost.

    Engineering facility ideas?

    I guess it depends some on what people would really use the space for. CAD systems with 3D software (such as Inventor or Solidworks) would be good. A 3D printer would be good if they need to print prototypes.

    Hello, I am James Doane. I have a PhD in mechanical engineering, 10 years of industrial experience, 10 years of academic experience, and I have a PE in Indiana. I am the founder of Mechanical PE Academy http://www.mechanicalpeacademy.com/ which is a website developed to help people pass the FE and PE exam. The website has free study guides and 'get started' courses, and I plan on developing more detailed review courses soon. I am also currently the Chair of the engineering department at the University of Jamestown. My goal is to teach young engineers and help the become professional engineers.

    Advice on which depth to take

    I think the Mechanical Systems and Materials exam is the best because it focuses heavily on topics from statics, dynamics, and mechanics of materials. If you master those topics you have a great understanding of much of that exam. There is a study guide available for that exam at http://www.mechanicalpeacademy.com/mechanical-pe-exam-study-guides/

    What do you use to bring in your books?

    People use a lot of different things for this. I just used a crate similar to a milk carton. You want it to be something that helps organize the books also. Mechanical PE Academy - http://www.mechanicalpeacademy.com/
