    Passed FPE - My path

    I see almost no help in the FPE section. I took the exam in Oct 2019 and passed. I used the meyerfire problem book and the school of PE book and work all the problem about 5 times over. To the point where they were boring.  The test still had a bunch I had to look up but being familiar with the...

    FPE Test Prep Info

    I am looking to take the FPE in October and am having trouble finding info/ study guides. Does anyone have anything to share? I already have a P.E. in ME HVAC so I am familiar with the tests.

    PE HVAC Study Materials pdf format

    Thirds on the engproguides. Buy it, have it printed. GREAT start to your notes. I ended up putting everything in there and used it almost entirely on the exam.

    Things that are worse than failing the PE...

    Not being able to clear your browser history after you die. (I failed twice) Don't sweat it. Change your study habits, work more problems, or like me change sections and try something new.

    Anyone here planning to take PE machine design in April 2018

    Fellow Engineers, who have passed the PE exam, can you suggest me what you did different to pass the exam?

    To add I practice in the consulting field and we do a little of everything. I do maybe 45% HVAC and some machine design and some fluid design.  I honestly have a little knowledge in all 3 subject fields.  Jack of all trades I guess ( A little about everything and a lot about nothing)

    Congratulations to all those that passed.

    This was my 3rd PE attempt and 1st attempt at the HVAC test. Previously failed the MDM twice. Passed the HVAC this time thank goodness. If you didn't pass, don't give up.

    Fellow Engineers, who have passed the PE exam, can you suggest me what you did different to pass the exam?

    I failed the MDM test twice getting a 49 out of 80 as the highest. I just passed the HVAC test and found it MUCH easier. Even if you don't do HVAC it may be easier for you to learn than the MDM. I would order the HVAC test and the TFS test and work a few problems.
