FE General (Other Disciplines)

Recommended Posts


Has anyone taken the FE general exam? What is that for exactly? A civil eng friend recommended I take that instead of a specific field because it's easier. What are your thoughts? If you did take this exam, what exactly did you use to study? How long have you been out of college?

Hey Che'!

I did the Other Discipline because I felt more confident cramming/learning general topics than some of the specific Civil questions. There were some theories in Civil that I often confused, so I didn't want that added pressure. 

I used the Michael Lindeburg's FE Review Manual for practice problems. I developed a good study plan after reading 30-Minute EIT by Joel Erway. 

Downside of doing the Other Discipline was that I think I studied more than my peers who did the Civil. Compare the sections/subjects of two disciplines, and see which one you think you'd be more comfortable studying/reviewing. 

Good luck!
