  1. I'm getting ready to take the Electrical FE exam in 2 weeks and wondering if anyone has taken the exam since they have switched to the new AIT format and they're thoughts on it?
  2. 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
  3. Hai

    Hai I am new to this I have doubts regarding the FE civil Exam. I just started to preparing for the exam Give me some tips to pass the exam and what materials can we take to the exam center.
  4. 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

  10. Would you be able to give any of your advice or share some of the materials you have used for the exam? Now I failed the exam 3 times, and I am bit nervous about the AIT format.. I have been out of the school for a while and working at the retail store through out the college, and it seems to me it is hard to find the relative jobs.. Please give any of your suggestions or advice I will wait for your replies....
  11. Hello Everyone! New here, but giving back to this forum just as it gave something to me. Resources and hope! I recently moved to the from Canada with a few years of experience in my hands after graduating as an Electrical Engineering candidate in the summer of 2013. While I hadn't been out of school for long, I still lost all hope of being in a school/study environment again and was worried about this FE Electrical and Computer CBT based exam. After looking at resources and forums I decided to start my studying. I moved here in April and with wanting to take my PE Power exam in the April of 2017, I decided to dedicate some time this year (2016) to study and try and pass the FE. So I bought the FE Electrical and Computer textbook by Lindeburg on Amazon for 50-ish $ and started studying by the end of July. I followed the schedule it says and tried to do one chapter a day, and sometimes three-four on weekends. Lindeburg suggests that you could start the course 45 days ahead of the exam and complete all 45 chapters without rest days and pass the exam the next day. I think this is pretty accurate since the exam is not very tough. Along with the textbook, I tried to learn where all the units and equations are in the FE Reference book which is the exact same book given to you on the computer in the exam. I also watched Raiya Energy Academy's Youtube videos online and used it for different questions and examples. I also found some online assessments that started a timer and told you how you did. And finally I made sure to really practice with my calculator and use the special functions like complex conversion, matrices, vectors, equation solving, computer numbering formats, and boolean logic. This last part is really important because doing all these in your calculator, saves you time, which gives you more minutes in the end for harder problems or for reviewing. After I was done going through the book, I decided to book the exam three weeks from finishing the book, and spend these weeks looking at the book and the reference manual again, but this time just doing the problems. I am so glad I did the steps above, because after I did the exam on a Friday, I found out I passed online the next Wednesday. Hope this helps you!
  12. Hello Everyone! After posting my FE exam prep from October 2016 found here: I decided to go strong and work towards my PE Power. Like I mentioned before, I already had the required 4 years of work experience between both Canada and the US, so I decided to apply for the PE Exam and write it in the coming April 2017. I would say, from talking with coworkers, peers, and just overall looking at all the material available it was really intimidating and overwhelming at first. I was very nervous about this exam from the get-go even after studying for the FE and passing it. Having done the FE just recently should help, is what I kept hearing from everyone, but of course I was finding it hard to connect the dots between the FE and the PE exams. Primarily, because the FE really is very basic level understanding of electrical engineering (First and Second year course material from University) whereas the PE is more like the third and fourth year materials + codebooks. In any case, I didn't have a great plan of studying for this like I did for the FE. With the FE I just took the reference material and followed their plans. With the PE, I asked around at work for what was available, and luckily there were a couple folks that had 5-6 different NCEES PE Power Practice Exam and Camara's booklets that combined had over a 1000 problems. I also printed out the NEC 2017, the NESC 2012, the NFPA 70 2017, the ANSI Device Numbers, and had a copy of the EPRM by John Camara. This last book was what I used to start my prep. Similar to the FE prep, I first went through the EPRM entirely and thoroughly. Then I went through a whole bunch of videos on youtube related to Power problems, notable mention Raiya Energy Academy. Again, while I don't always agree with Raiya's solutions, her problems and walk throughs are worth looking into. She gets the steps right 99 percent of the time, but the answer might be wrong in some cases. She corrects herself in most cases. After I finished the EPRM book, I went through the entire NEC 2017 code book and sticky tabbed most of the important and often used artices, (See Raiya's video on Must Know NEC Articles). I have to admit, you are not going to remember where each article is. So heavily rely on the index pages of these code books in the end of the books. After the NEC, I went through the NESC codebook and the NFPA codebooks fairly quickly in order to get the gist of the materials. The last four weeks before the exam, all I did was problems problems problems. I have to admit, after I did the exam, I had a sense of relief, it was either from finishing a long 9.5 hours day (including breaks) or I was fairly confident in what I had answered were correct. For anyone thinking that there isn't enough time in the exam, if you prepared as much as I did, and I think you should, then you should have enough time to write the exam and still have 45 minutes in the end to check everything. I had finished checking and still left a half an hour earlier. Total time taken to study: Once I passed the FE, and got my approval that I had been registered for the PE exam in February, I started studying Mid February. From Mid-Feb to April 19th, I spent 8 weeks studying. Weekends were the busiest (6-8 hours each day) and then 3-4 weeknights of one hour each. Prep Prep Prep, is all I can say. I can usually gauge whether or not one would need to study as much or not for a certain exam, however, both before and even after writing the PE exam, I have to say you must put in your hours to study. It is not that hard, but it is not trivial. So I passed, and the results came out exactly 1 Month and 5 days later. Good luck to Oct 2017s and future PEs.

  15. FE Exam - Mechanical

    Hello there, I've been working in the mechanical engineering field for more than 12 years. Interested in taking the FE, then the PE. My bachelors and masters are both related to IT. I feel that if I focus in on specific study topics geared towards each test, I can pass both tests. I see some of these forums are outdated, and I was wondering if anyone could recommend the following: 1) Which study guide/ class would you recommend? 2) What time frame do you give yourself to study for the exam? 2-3 months before schedule date? 3) In CA, NCEES says after July 1, 2017, in addition to the traditional multiple choice, they will use common alternative item types (point and click, drag and drop, fill in the blank). Does anyone in other states have experience with this? 4) Any other thoughts, comments or suggestions? Thank you.
  16. FE-CBT Exam Results Release Date/Time

    Hello all, I know that most people here have taken their exam during the Thursday to Saturday days and gotten results back Wednesday ~0900 EASTERN but I wanted to ask if there is anyone out there that has taken the exam say Monday to Wednesday and when you have gotten results. I just took my this past Monday and would like to know. Made a topic out of it since I couldn't find the answer anywhere and it may help someone else in the future in determining their time. Thanks in advance!
  17. New guy

    Hello everyone My name is Hunter and would like to learn more about the PE pursuit. I am a test engineer for a sub-business unit of Fluke that specializes in radiation detection equipment for nuclear power plants. I've been in this role for 2 years, and I graduated with a bachelors in nuke from the University of Florida (Go Gators). I ultimately want to get into contract engineering work / run my own show in ANY technological or engineering industry. Like I said, I am interested in obtaining a PE. The type of PE that would be relevant to my current job would be nuclear and maybe civil/mechanical. I do a lot of qualification testing and calibrations for our systems. EMI/RFI, seismic, environmental, that sort of thing. I could utilize a civil/mechanical PE for the seismic qualification portion of my work. A nuclear PE would be all around useful as that is the industry we work in. I do not work with anyone in my building (solon, oh) who has a PE in either of the mentioned fields. The Fluke mothership is in Everett, Washington. I have yet to contact anyone there for a reference. I passed the FE other disciplines exam in 2014. Any advice or suggestions are welcome for this noob. In the small amount of spare time I have I like to read eat and work out. Go Cavs, Go Gators, screw Ohio State I look forward to meeting like minded people on here Hunter

  19. Hello everyone: I am offering FE refresher - in Civil - Online - 1.5 hrs to 2.5 hrs for each topic - I would cover the theory, do solved examples and also tutor sample problems in each subject hour. My offer is for each unit separately - I guarantee full marks in each topic - please contact for further information. fereview2016@gmail.com Ethics and Professional Practice Engineering Economics Statics Computational tools Dynamics Materials Mechanics of Materials Structural Analysis Structural Design Construction Surveying Mathematics I would add on the remaining subjects - if there is interest. I would take the student through the theory and work the problems with the student as guided practice and then help out with extra problems so that concept is clear and required speed is achieved.
  20. 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.
  21. I am planning to register for the FE test under the Michigan board. But since i live in Kansas i would like to choose a test center near me. Does anyone know if thats possible? Thanks.
  22. Hey guys. So I got my employer take care of the fee for FE Review Class. I will register for the January to February 2017 Civil FE review from School of PE. I'm planning to take the exam in NY. So here's my background: BS Civil Engg graduate from the Philippines. My school is currently ABET accredited but I'm not sure if they were already during my time. I graduated in 1996. Have total of roughly 19 yrs engineering/construction experience: First 8 yrs in the Phils. Next 5 yrs in the Middle East Last 6 here in the US. My specialization for most of my 19 yrs is in Project Mgmt/Project Controls - mainly cost, scheduling and project coordination. Questions are: Are my credentials considered ABET accredited in case my school wasn't ABET yet during my time? I read from NCEES that, if you graduated from an ABET school, you do not need to obtain approval to sit in an exam and can register immediately for the exam. In case it will be classified as non-ABET, is my 6 yrs US experience enough? Will NYS consider my experience outside the US? Will my experience be an issue since I spent most years in Project Controls? Considering all the above, should I start my application now even before I start the review classes? How long does it usually take to get approval to take the exam? Thanks in advance guys. Really appreciate the help.
  23. Prospective Michigan PE!

    HI, Electrical Engineer new to this board. I'm a Michigan EIT (Passed the FE) currently studying for the PE exam (potentially taking the test in April 2017). I came across this board while looking for study tips to pass the PE Exam. It seems most of the advice out there is for the Mechanical, Civil, or Electrical Power PE Exam. I'm planning on taking the Electrical and Electronics PE Exam as that applies to my work and interests more. I've also noticed there aren't many websites devoted to PE study tips; so I've decided to create a website where I can combine all of the best information I find into one place (PEExamTips.com). This is also my first attempt at creating a website (always been curious) so I'd appreciate both you're best PE test taking/preparation tips as well as constructive criticism for my site.
  24. I have an undergrad degree in civil engineering and masters in environmental. I work in the environmental field. But I am really terrible at test taking like these - i took the ACT 10 times! I get major anxiety. I have failed it 3 times already. I was wondering which exam would be the easiest to pass- other, civil, or env? I really dont remember anything about structural/transportation, etc. I'll take any advice-thanks!
