best of a bad bunch
on October 13, 2011
I spent a while looking for a good book to help me study for the civil specific (afternoon) portion of the FE and this appeared to be the best option. Yes it is a small book approx 1/4 inch thick but it is better than nothing. It has approx 10 sample question for each topic in the afternoon exam with worked solutions. Then it has 2 practice afternoon exams with answers.
The answer solutions could be more thorough, and having spent a while out of school, it can take some decoding to figure out how the question should be answered. It does not contain any principles or narratives in the topics, it is only questions and answers, but doing questions is a big part of studying for the FE. I have used this book in combination with the Lindeburg book for the morning exam - which can offer some insight into how to solve the topics that appear in both the morning and afternoon exams.
In the absence of anything else i recommend this.
