That's really difficult to say.  I have not had all the material here..  But, from what I have read, here on the forums,  and did have I believe the PPI Practice Problems had the most difficult questions.

From what I have read on the forums, the NCEES 2001 and 2008 version are identical.  

EngProGuides: Did not use.

Slaythe PE wasn't around for my exam...  JERK! 😁

See this post by @mckenz007

She took a paper-based exam so her comments about references and stuff she took to the test are not applicable, but she did go into detail about almost all the study materials you are asking about.

In my experience. From easiest to hardest (from an MDM perspective)

  1. 2016 Practice Exam
  2. 6-minute Solutions
  3. The actual PE exam

^all pretty similar

Then way at the bottom because MUCH MUCH harder.

        12. PPI Problems

The new quiz problems in the PPI learning hub are very similar in difficulty to the NCEES practice exams and 6minute solutions.
