  1. Hi again everyone - On Saturday I posted the second (of two) videos on YouTube covering Part 9 of my FE Exam Preparatory program: FE Prep, Part 9, Video 1 - Licensing & Ethics- https://youtu.be/RERdWNKoixo FE Prep, Part 9, Video 2 - Licensing & Ethics- https://youtu.be/iZsUZD8zsb8 In this part I continue going over a number of subtopics covering Professional Practice, Contracting, Licensing/Re-Licensing, and Ethics. Depending on which discipline test is being sat for, there are anywhere between 2 and 8 questions involving these topics on the FE Exam. Due to the length of the material covered, I had to break this lesson into two videos. The one I posted Saturday morning was the second of those videos. As I continue to post new videos are in this series, I will post updates here with the links (although subscribing to my channel would guarantee you know about them as soon as they go up - hint hint). The last lesson (Part 10), will be a test that covers all the material I covered in this preparatory program, and will therefore be the final segment of the series. In the very near future, I will be posting a similar series for the generic portions of the PE exam. You can also visit my YouTube channel a PE4Doers, and open the playlist FE Exam Preparation at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBP4QXQvniTfMHh_QILp8xq3oyWQBzdhN I hope those of you working toward passing the FE exam find the information and material in these lessons helpful. Once I've completed this FE sequence, I plan on creating a similar series for the PE exam. Good luck. David R Rivera

  3. When I created a couple of the early lessons for my 'FE Preparation Videos' (as described in another thread within this Forum), I did some research and I found the PDF reader software that NCEES uses for displaying and browsing their FE Handbook during the test. I suspect it was part of an overall S/W package they bought when they decided to move those exams to the computer based delivery method. It is a very poor program, which I explain in one of my videos as something test-takers need to be careful about. As I recall however, they wanted to charge a couple hundred dollars for a single license for the PDF browser - not worth it, in my opinion, even to practice with.
  4. Hi once again everyone - This morning I posted the following video on YouTube covering Part 8 of my FE Exam Preparatory program: FE Prep, Part 8 - Engineering Economics: Techniques & Samples - https://youtu.be/A0E-FUIFHEc In this part I cover an area which most fledgling Engineers should be able to quickly conquer and earn themselves 10 to 12 correct answers on the FE Exam (any discipline). I cover the techniques I used to quickly get tot he correct answers and move through to other areas on the exam that will require more time to finish. As I continue to post new videos are in this series, I will post updates here with the links (although subscribing to my channel would guarantee you know about them as soon as they go up - hint hint).

Once I've completed this FE sequence is completed, I plan on creating a new series for the PE exam. Good luck. David R Rivera
  5. Hi again everyone, This morning I posted the seventh (7th) part of my FE preparatory series. I expect to get the eight part up within the next two to three weeks. FE Prep, Part 7 - Getting Ready for the Mathematics Questions: https://youtu.be/Mr-kQgviLLE This 7th part should help you focus on "FE Mathematics", using other resources to catch up on areas you haven't done problems on recently. As new videos are uploaded as part of this series, I will continue post updates here with the links (although subscribing to my channel would guarantee you know about them as soon as they go up - hint hint). You can also visit my YouTube channel a PE4Doers, and open the playlist FE Exam Preparation at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBP4QXQvniTfMHh_QILp8xq3oyWQBzdhN I hope many of you working toward passing the FE exam find the information and material in these lessons helpful. Once this FE sequence is completed, I plan on doing the same for the PE exam. Good luck. David Rivera
  6. Last night I posted the sixth (5th) part of my FE preparatory series. I expect to get the seventh part, 7.Getting Ready for the Mathematics Questions posted within the next two weeks . FE Prep, Part 6 - The Calculator: https://youtu.be/_0iMF1ThPDA This 6th part should get you in 'Full Study Mode", with the study focused on what would be most beneficial for you. As new videos are uploaded as part of this series, I will continue post updates here with the links (although subscribing to my channel would guarantee you know about them as soon as they go up - hint hint). You can also visit my YouTube channel a PE4Doers, and open the playlist FE Exam Preparation at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBP4QXQvniTfMHh_QILp8xq3oyWQBzdhN I hope many of you working toward passing the FE exam find the information and material in these lessons helpful. Once this FE sequence is completed, I plan on doing the same for the PE exam. Good luck. David Rivera
  7. Bill, Thanks for the positive feedback. I think the video I will be releasing soon on Engineering Economics will be one of the most useful (other than the calculator set). David Rivera PF, MBA, CISSP
  8. Thanks Bill, I very much appreciate you subscribing. With the help of more viewers like yourself I will hopefully be able to continue providing the level of content that everyone should be seeing. Also, see the post edit I just made - a new FE Prep video was posted last night. David Rivera Professional Engineer, MBA, and CISSP
  9. I just post the third (3rd) video for the fifth (5th) part of my FE preparatory series. I expect to get the the fourth (4th) and final video uploaded early next week (that video will be the test, and the answers to that test all in one). FE Prep, Part 5, Video 3 of 4 - The Calculator: https://youtu.be/YentxMVtlTs I have to say that creating this 5th part of my preparatory series has been the MOST challenging for me, since I wanted to ensure the key presses were clear and I solve some sample problems I created. As new videos are uploaded as part of this series, I will continue post updates here with the links (although subscribing to my channel would guarantee you know about them as soon as they go up - hint hint). You can also visit my YouTube channel a PE4Doers, and open the playlist FE Exam Preparation at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBP4QXQvniTfMHh_QILp8xq3oyWQBzdhN I hope many of you working toward passing the FE exam find the information and material in these lessons helpful for your test preparation.

  10. This weekend I am posting videos covering most of the fifth part of my FE preparatory series. I expect to get the first three parts uploaded by the end of the weekend, with the fourth and final video being uploaded early next week (that video will be the test, and the answers to that test all in one). FE Prep, Part 5, Video 1 of 4 - The Calculator: https://youtu.be/e6P2WA_g1Fw FE Prep, Part 5, Video 2 of 4 - The Calculator: https://youtu.be/g7uNsbIlVfM I have to say that creating this part of my preparatory series has been the MOST challenging of all, since I wanted to ensure the key presses were clear and I solve some sample problems I created. As new videos are uploaded as part of this series, I will continue post updates here with the links (although subscribing to my channel would guarantee you know about them as soon as they go up - hint hint).

David Rivera
  13. I just added a new Video. Let me know if you find it helpful.
  14. On the FE - Spend most of your time studying the material in the middle of your experience and knowledge level. For example, if you're great at math, you can spend less time on that area. If you are absolutely terrible at Control Systems, then don't waste much time on that topic (focus on some simple examples only). Then if you are 'ok' in engineering economics and transistor/logic circuits, then spend 80% of your time getting faster at solving those problems. For the PE, it changes from a sprint to a marathon run. Use a similar study plan to what I just mentioned for the FE, however spend much more time on the 'depth' of questions and problems. You have more than twice the time to work on a PE problem than you had on the FE, so they tend to make them a bit more complex. Although be ready for the unexpected - I believe I saw the same problem in computer logic design on both tests (which I can't describe in any more detail without risking sanctions from NCEES). The difference was that I did not have enough time to work it out during the FE exam, however I did have the time on the PE exam.
