  1. I passed.......!! : ))) Here is my background. Long story short, I graduated 5 years ago and didn't put effort to pass EIT when I was in school. Now I need to pass this EIT for my career and I decided to take review class. If you scroll down in this forum, I asked about review class back in January/February. I was on fence between School of PE and EET, and I decided to go with EET. I can't speak of School of PE, but I highly recommend EET FE CIVIL review class. (They have demo sample video if you want to see how it's like, but you need to ask them). I enrolled in Sameh's on demand online class. (Link is here http://www.eetusa.com/classes/fe) because I can't commit class's schedule due to my baby and family. Here are the reasons why I gave EET's FE review class 4.5 starts out of 5. 1. The class format is very easy to follow and well structured. Sameh goes over a little bit of equations and concepts and he shows you where you can find that equation in NCEES's reference manual. Then follow by examples and quizzes. The class is heavily based on practicing problems than a lot of theories. Keep in mind that we are not trying to get Engineering Degree here, but we are trying to pass FE exam which you need to do a tons of practice problems. 2. There are a lot of problems available for you to practice. The level of difficulty of the problems is a little bit below Michael R. Lindeburg but harder than actual NCEES’s problems which i found it very well prepared for actual test. It’s mixed with easy, medium and hard questions. 3. There will be HW assignments for all subjects. Then timed section exams to test your speed and knowledge of subjects. Finally, you can have timed 110 NCEES’s alike final test. 4. I can’t conclude without talking about Sameh. He’s a very caring and positive person. I told him that I had to stop studying for 3 months due to my family circumstance and he’s very understanding. His responses are very prompt and you can ask him questions any time any day. The reason I am giving 4.5 is that there are a few things they can be improved on. The lectures are based on NCEES’s reference 9.0 version, not 9.4. Changes from 9.0 to 9.4 are very minor. NCEES just added a few transportation (2 pages) in 9.4 from 9.3, and a few deflection formulas changed in Mechanic of Materials. Their review is great for someone who got civil engineering background and needed review to recall what you have studied before. It's not designed for someone who needs to understand fundamental of civil engineering from the scratch. Here are the study materials that I have used to pass my 1st attempt (with real study): 1. EET FE Civil Review (Approximately 1000 problems with both examples, quizzes, HW, section exams, final exam) 2. NCEES practice problems 2014 (50 questions) 3. NCEES practice problems 2009 (60 morning / 30 afternoon questions) 4. Utlimate Civil FE practice problems by Isaac Oakeson (110 questions) (Do only after you completed your review to practice your speed) 5. Michael R. Lindeburg’s FE Civil Practice Problems (I did around 200 problems out of 466 in the book in Math, Hydraulic, Environmental, Geotech, Materials, Transportation, Construction, Computer) (I glanced through Statics, Mechanics of Materials, and Structural and skipped problems that required more than 4 steps which won’t be on test). My Strategies on Exam Day 1. Light review or no study at all on a day before exam. 2. Make sure you have enough 8 hours sleep on a night before exam. 3. Don’t build up your stress and go into exam room. Just relax and have a little bit of worry to maintain your energy throughout 6 hours. 4. During the exam, if you don’t know how to tackle problems within 15 seconds, flag and skip to next. Save your brain juice for problems that you know how to do. 5. Educated guesses are very critical in the exam. You will find yourself with 10-20 questions that you have no idea or you are not sure how to do. Try to eliminate 1-2 impossible answers and make a choice of the remaining 2-3 possible answers. You will gain this skill once you did a tons of practice problems. I put in around 200ish hours for the exam. I'm glad handwork pay off finally, and i don't have to do FE again. Now on to the PE and I'm heavily leaning toward EET's review class for my 8 hours and seismic exams. Finally, I thank engineerboards.com and awesome fellow engineers here for making this happen. Without you, i can't imagine what i'll be studying for FE or how many more times i need to attempt. I'm so glad this forum exists. If any of you have any questions about anything, just ask me here.
  2. Capstone Learning has added the FE Civil CBT online exam review curriculum to is existing catalog of online FE CBT and PE review courses. The curriculum is comprised of three components, each of which include the topics that specifically align with the FE Civil CBT exam, and are delivered and supported by an FE exam instructor who has been helping engineers pass the FE exam for more than 25 years: the FE Civil Instructional review includes more than 35 hours of targeted contextual knowledge, 350 solved exam-based problems and guided solutions, access to the FE expert who will answer your specific questions while you review, Capstone's own RIGOR solution methodology, and the fundamental "need to knows" for each topic. The modular topic structure allows you to study the CBT exam topics in the order you choose, and to view and review any topic for as long and often as you need to, until you pass the exam. the FE Solved Problem set lets you solve 350 exam-based problems on your own, and then compare your solution with the exam expert's guided solution. the FE Civil Sample exam replicates the CBT exam experience. It's built like the actual exam, including the number of problems per topic (as specified by NCEES), and features a countdown timer. At the end of the exam, you'll see your score. You can then review each exam problem's detailed solution, provided by the exam expert. All Capstone Learning products allow you instant access as soon as they are purchased. Because they are Web-based, that access is 24/7 and allows you to prepare on your time. They are also yours to keep for as long as you need them to pass the exam. The FE expert is also on hand for as long as required, and will respond to your questions within 1 - 2 days. Visit www.capstonelearningassociates.com to learn more about all of our exam review products and to enroll in our free sample module, where you will see for yourself how the Capstone Learning experience is a comprehensive one-of-a-kind review. -The Capstone Learning Associates Team 650.504.0301 www.capstonelearningassociates.com
  3. Prepare to Pass Your FE Exam PPI’s newly launched FE Practice Exams accurately simulate the NCEES FE CBT exam you will experience at a Pearson VUE testing center. Within reason, the similarity is as true to the actual exam as PPI could make it. In addition to a true representation of the interface, Practice Exam questions accurately represent NCEES questions in level of difficulty, knowledge area distribution, wording, and multiple-choice formatting. As with the actual exam, Practice Exam questions are grouped by knowledge area, and they can be solved with the searchable online reference document provided. Some features of PPI's FE Practice Exams deviate significantly from the actual NCEES FE CBT exam functionality. These deviations are primarily for your benefit. They are: (1) the ability to pause your Practice Exam at any time for any duration; (2) immediate grading, analysis, and reporting of your results; and (3) the ability to view the full solution of any question on the exam. These features will not be present during the actual exam. After submitting a PPI FE Practice Exam for grading, you will be provided with a detailed analysis of your performance. You may also review your responses, the correct answers, and complete solutions to all questions. Side-by-Side Reference and Problems PPI's FE Practice Exams mimic the CBT experience with a side-by-side presentation of questions and reference material. Answer questions while referencing a fully searchable set of equations, tables, and figures that is equivalent to the NCEES FE Reference Handbook. Timed Exam Experience Like the actual FE exam, PPI's FE Practice Exams are split into two sessions, each with approximately 55 questions (totaling 110 altogether). Schedule five hours and 20 minutes to complete both sessions, with one 25-minute break after completion of the first session. Practice answering questions with a timer to simulate the FE exam’s two sessions and break period. Use PPI's exam-like navigation--such as answer, next, previous, flag for review, and more--to avoid any hesitation during the actual FE exam. Use a 24-inch monitor to further simulate the FE exam experience. Immediate Practice Exam Reporting In addition to a realistic practice experience, PPI's FE Practice Exams offer a summary of all selected answers for review prior to submission, and immediate grading after Practice Exam completion. This reporting covers performance by knowledge area, as well as access to complete solutions for all problems. Click here to learn more about PPI's new FE Practice Exams and other discipline-specific materials that will help you prepare to pass the FE exam.

  6. I am debating buying the Michael Lindeburg afternoon electrical book but looking at the amazon reviews its basically useless. Has anyone used the review book and taken the exam if so how useful was the book?
  7. NEW FORMAT FOR THE FE EXAMS COMING IN APRIL 2014 As you may know, the FE exam is changing dramatically in 2014. The new format, to be delivered via CBT (computer based testing), will become the norm in 2014. The last paper-based exam will be the upcoming October 2013 exam. No more waiting for the exam twice a year. Beginning in January 2014, the FE and FS will be administered during four testing windows throughout the year: January–February, April–May, July–August, and October–November. Registration will be open year-round. What this means is that you will be able to schedule your exam on the date and time of your choice during each testing window. You will first select your location, and then you’ll choose from the available time slots. During the month between testing windows, no time slots will be available. Thus, there will be no testing during Solstice and Equinox months. Hmmm, I wonder why? DR. INDRANIL GOSWAMI’S REVIEW COURSE FOR THE FE-CIVIL EXAM Dr. Indranil Goswami has taught review courses geared towards the General FE exam as well as the Civil PE exam for over a decade. He has written several books based on these experiences: 1. A chapter on Surveying in the FE Civil Discipline Review book, published by Kaplan AEC Publishing. 2. The All In One Guide for the Civil PE exam, currently in 2nd edition, by McGraw Hill. Publishers. 3. The All In One Practice Exams book for the Civil PE exam, by McGraw Hill Publishers. SYLLABUS OF THE NEW CIVIL EXAM The syllabus for the new FE CIVIL exam is vastly different from the one you would have taken if you took the paper test (last one this October). In fact, the changes are quite favorable to Civil Engineers. No more Chemistry, Electrical Circuits or Thermodynamics (these three topics would have been 12.5% of your total points if you took the GENERAL AM + CIVIL PM approach, and a whopping 26% of your total points if you took the GENERAL AM + GENERAL PM approach). Instead, the new syllabus focuses more on the subject areas that directly support the field of Civil Engineering, thus bringing it more in line with the Civil PE exam, albeit on a simpler level. THE TEST The test will now be 6 hours long (instead of 8 hours), with approximately 5 hours and 20 minutes available for actual test (the rest of the time is for a tutorial, a break and a follow-up survey). In those 320 minutes, you will be expected to answer 110 questions. In the past, AM questions were of the 2 minute variety and PM questions were of the 4 minute variety. Now, you have about 3 minutes per question. So, the average pace of the exam is about the same. The candidate can choose when to take the break – i.e. after answering 55 questions and reviewing and submitting the answers, the candidate can take the break, even if only 1:20 has elapsed. This will mean they will have the remaining 4 hours to answer the remaining 55 questions. Dr. Indranil Goswami’s background in FE and PE review Dr. Goswami’s PE (Civil) review course has been very successful over the past decade. The candidates’ pass rate is significantly higher than national rates, for both first-timers as well as for repeat takers. Since the new FE (Civil) exam places a great deal of emphasis on ‘Civil-oriented’ topics and de-emphasizes Chemistry, Electrical Circuits or Thermodynamics, the redesigned FE review course offers a much more focused review of topics than would have been possible before (a total review for the previous GENERAL AM + CIVIL PM exam would have required at least a 60-hour review course. SCHEDULE FOR THE NEW FE-CIVIL COURSE Starting February 1 (Saturday), the completely overhauled FE Review course will be taught for the first time, via online webinars. The class will be held over 10 Saturdays (10 AM – 2 PM). Lectures will be recorded and archived for unlimited viewing. A free informational webinar about the changes to the new FE exam and the structure of the proposed FE Civil review course will be conducted on Saturday November 2, 2013. To be included in the roster of the free webinar, send an email to Dr. Goswami at civilpereview@gmail.com COST The cost for the 40 hour course will be $550. If you enroll prior to December 1, 2013, you are entitled to a $100 discount from this course fee. To find out more details about the course, write to Dr. Goswami at civilpereview@gmail.com
