  1. Hey Everyone! Just a quick one: has anyone ever used this: https://onlinetechnicaltraining.net/course/fe-exam-civil/fe-review/ ? Any recommendations? I failed my first FE Civil attempt (56%), been too long out of school. For my second try I went through PPI FE on-demand course, went through all of them. However, I still feel like I haven't done enough practice problems. I want something that is exactly the same form as FE Civil Exam, not over-complicated. For my first attempt I used M. Lideburg practice book (approx 20-30hrs) and IMO their questions were too complex, not the same form as FE Civil Exam. I also used the PPI online quizzes, but these were completely useless, like most people noticed. Any thoughts?
  2. 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
  3. 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

  6. 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.
  7. Any last minute advice??

    I'm taking the Civil FE 2/19/2016. I've studied the Lindburg review manual and taken the NCEES practice exam. Made a 65% on the practice exam a week ago and studied the items I missed since then. I failed the exam last April. I have put in a lot more study time and used the free Georgia Institute of Tech FE prep material on coursera. Any last minute advice or calculator tips from recent examinees?

  15. 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
