Hi All, I'm not a huge fan of taking classes to study for things, especially standardized exams. I feel like the most effective solution is to do as many sample problems as possible that are as similar to the exam as possible, that cover all subject areas. Some questions: 1.) Does anyone know of any good resources for sample exam problems? 2.) NCEES appears to have a single sample exam for the civil breadth + structural depth, do you know where we can find more? Are there different versions? https://account.ncees.org/exam-prep/315 3.) My boss has a sample exam from NCEES, copyrighted in 2014 (I think this is the same as the current sample exam), does anyone have any older/alternate NCEES practice exams? 4.) Does anyone know of any good study resources in addition to sample exams? Thanks! Regards, Spencer
Is there anyone around here that has successfully taken the FE exam without any formal college education? Background: 3-4 years ago, I completed the 9-division architect registration exam and am now a registered architect. There were 3 primary resources I used for self-study. At this point, I'm now interested in pursuing the Architectural Engineering license. I've downloaded and am currently reading through the NCEES Supplied-Reference Handbook (8th ed, 2nd rev). I've also downloaded an 11- to 12-page PDF file containing some standard formulas. Though everyone's study habits are different, I am curious as to how some of you -- hopefully under similar circumstances -- have studied for the exam. Materials? Schedules? Thanks in advance!!
