  1. You have to use the NCEES practice book. That will your best shot. I just past my FE Exam (in February) it was the one with more similar problems. https://ppi2pass.com/ncees-fe-civil-practice-exam-ncfece.html You can buy it directly from NCEES and it will be only $30
  2. Failed FE Exam Diagnotic

    Hi MB007, I have created an excel spreadsheet to help me understand the scale of the FE on a percentage way. it is a lot people out there that said is 60% on the passing and others say it is 70%. I am not sure. But I will shoot for 70%. I just pass the test two weeks ago and it is a create feeling. Here is yours. I also attached the excel file for your convenience.

    Hi, I been taking on demand videos on PPI and I like the packet they offer with quizzes and other things. I have lost the test several times in the pass very close to your results. I am taking it in few weeks and I will let you. However, I have a spreadsheet that helps me see my percentages on the areas.

    Hi Icon, I have lost the test before. I am taking again in a few weeks. However I come up with a spreadsheet that helps me to improve the areas that need most of the work. I hope it will help.

  5. Need Advise, FE Civil

    Thank you Jbone, I will look into the EET company. I been checking several online course. The ppi2pass have the best reviews but they are very expensive, about $1,700 for the live online class and all the other competitors are an average of $990 for the live online classes. it makes me wonder why are the so expensive. Thank you for replying to my post.
  6. Need Advise, FE Civil

    I need some advise, I had take the FE exam 6 times, 2 times on the old version (paper and pencil). I am a very bad test taker. The third time I didn't study, the fourth time I only focus in the areas that I needed to strength. The other times I studied a lot. I been out of school for 7 years and now I am in a position that I need to pass the FE exam to keep my new job. I have two little kids a one and half year old and a five year old starting kindergarten. I don't really have time, but the last two times. I put my kids to bed and I studied until 1 or 3 o'clock in the morning, go to work full time and do it all over. I did that for 3 months or more. I though that for sure I would pass the test but nooo.. I am very discourage. I am not sure what to do. I attached my last NCEES diagnostic for you option. I want to take a review class. Any suggestions?? 2017_C07_09_Examinee_Diagnostic_1.pdf
  7. Hi all! Just a quick hello and maybe some advise. I am 7 years out of undergrad and have been studying from Lindeburg's FE Civil Review Manual. I did not pass the first attempt, or second or third and I am back at it again now. My job it is on the line and I have to pass the test by July of 2018. I plan to take the test again in January 2018. I cannot take it before due to NCEES restrictions. Does anyone have an online course they recommend? I took the test back on July and the test has change again, 10% of the test is NOT a multiple-choice questions. It has alternative item types, like: Multiple correct—allows examinees to select multiple answers Point and click—requires examinees to click on part of a graphic to answer Drag and drop—requires examinees to click on and drag items to match, sort, rank, or label Fill in the blank—provides a space for examinees to enter a response to the question I am not sure which online course has updated their study guide since July of 2017. Any recommendations? Diana
