Our Study Guide for the FE Exam Is Unlike Any Other

If you'd like to get the FE exam score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the FE exam is "good enough," and to beat the test taking game, then this might be the most important message you read this year.

Our comprehensive study guide for the FE Test is written by our FE exam experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the FE exam. Our original research into the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Examination, offered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the FE exam. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the FE exam.

Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:

The Three Reasons To Believe What We Say

The First Reason:

Our company's name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have a team of standardized test researchers who have worked on developing our study guide for the FE exam. The standards for who gets to work on the team are very strict- we demand the best for our customers, and only those who met our exacting standards made the cut. The dedicated research staff have years of combined experience in mastering the content and skills necessary to succeed on the toughest exams.

The Second Reason:

Some academic studies have revealed that test takers do not really benefit from the traditional test preparation process. But we knew there had to be a solution- if test takers were not doing well on the FE exam despite high intelligence, there had to be a set of secret keys to the test that would open the door of success for these test takers.

We believe we have succeeded in finding the secret keys of the exam. What we found was surprising, and in some cases ridiculously simple once explained to the average test taker.

We put the findings together in a thorough, concise study guide that we believe allows any test taker, at any skill level, to improve his or her results dramatically with a minimum of effort.

The Third Reason:

We created the product in part because we were frustrated by the options available to test takers who really wanted to do well on the FE exam.

A common approach is to TEACH the material, instead of TEACHING THE TEST. That's not necessarily good enough for the FE exam- you have to know how to apply the knowledge. Most test takers already have a general knowledge of the material that will be covered on the exam.

One reason some test takers do well on the day of the test is that they have made the critical connection between the material they learned and how to use the material to succeed on the FE exam.

Our guide addresses the difference between merely knowing the material and knowing how to use the material to perform on test day.

You're going to save time, money, and aggravation. You'll learn to avoid the mistakes and the bad strategies that you've been vulnerable to. --Just for starters, here are some ways our product can help your score on the FE exam...

  • The Top 20 things you should take care of within 24 hours of taking the test- use the list we provide as a checklist to make sure you've taken care of the "little things" in addition to studying hard
  • How to predict the right answer before you see the answer choices- and how to prevent the wrong answers from "polluting" your mind and tempting you into a trap designed by the test writers
  • Why answers that "sound" correct are often the very ones that are wrong- and how to tell the difference between the right answer and the many clever-sounding traps set for you by the test writers
  • Our "benchmark" method for deciding which of the answer choices you should pick
  • How some of the random bits of information in a question often "give away" the right answer choice
  • How to "milk the question" for clues to the right answer even if you have no idea what the question is asking about
  • How to avoid panicking when you don't know the answer to a question- we offer a systematic method that will serve as the "lifeline" you need to minimize the time wasted on the test questions that leave you stumped --
  • What to do about the tough questions that you have no clue how to answer- don't just give up, use the advice we offer to make sure you give yourself the best chance of getting the right answer

  • How to use our brainstorming method to get "inside the question" and reveal the hard-to-find clues and some of the subtle things you didn't realize you knew
  • Do you know what a "hedge phrase" is? Learn why looking for the key "weasel words" in the question can help identify the correct answer
  • Why "new information" in the answer choices almost always means that the answer choice is wrong- and the way to avoid this trick planted by the clever test writers
  • Learn to avoid this time-draining mistake on the test - why the technical terms you don't know can be a major stumbling block and waste precious time, and the way that you can work around them
  • The secret to using the contextual clues in the questions and the answer choices to make important distinctions between the right and the wrong answer choices
  • The two situations where you should NOT check your answers thoroughly
  • How to avoid careless mistakes by using the quick "double check" system. It will more than pay for itself relative to the time it will take you
  • Test writers will often quote directly from the question in an answer- learn whether this is something you should trust or avoid
  • Why "extreme statements" in the answer choices are dead giveaways for wrong answers- find out how to detect the subtle differences between reasonable answers and the answers that are almost always wrong
  • Learn how to group your answer choices into "families" that often narrows down the pool of correct answers- this is a quick way to immediately eliminate one or two of the answer choices and increase your odds of getting the question right

Now, you're probably wondering how and why we can do all the things we claim.

Let us explain.

Before we go any further, let us clarify what FE Exam Secrets is not. It is not a stale rehash of all of the things you have already learned in the past.

I purchased the Secrets file, and I just wanted to let you know that I passed my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures. Sincerely, Paul L.

My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS, Chris G.

I just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!! Brian

I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you! Zac L.

You get at least 10 times your money's worth! --When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

There are plenty of study guides out there that say they will help you do well on the test, but this guide is one that can really do just that. This guide has all of the content in it that will be covered on the test so you know if it’s going to be on the test, it’s in the guide. That’s the most important aspect of the guide. Beyond that, the guide doesn’t have a lot of fluff, which is nice because that would just waste your time and cause the guide to cost more which you never want. The guide does have a couple of extras like test taking tips and study secrets, all of which are relevant and helpful.

Have you mastered the knowledge skill set it takes to get the fundamentals of engineering? Well that is what your FE test will determine. Of course, if you show yourself exceptional in this area you will earn these credentials. How can you do this in an easy study format? Just get the FE Exam Secrets.

You will get a distinct overview of this exam, and general tips and strategies on taking the test. The guide is also full of your study content and shows you what to expect on the test in the way of content.

You would be remiss if this guide didn't outline a few secrets for you; after all, it is a secret guide. There are five distinctive secrets in fact to keep in mind. The five secrets are Time is Your Greatest Enemy, Guessing is not Guesswork, Prepare, Don't Procrastinate, Work Smarter, Not Harder, and Test Yourself.

Bonus material gives cutting-edge information in the testing arena but also in your new career arena. The bonus material incorporates study secrets, and how to overcome test anxiety. This guide also includes a practice test for your practice testing pleasure.

If you combine all these resources with the most extensive study guide, this guide will still be the leader of the pack because if offers general testing advice, actual testing content, and a slew of other beneficial resources. Any future engineer would want these tricks up their sleeve.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is waste of money. It's very short, approximately as thick as a coloring book, even though its double spaced. For everything mentioned in the description there is basically a small paragraph to define it and nothing more. The biggest clue that this book is worthless is the fact that even though it is for a test containing ALOT of math there are maybe ten equations in the whole book. This book really seems like it was written to scam people out of money. The beginning of this book contains basic test taking tips that anybody taking this test should already know by this point in their educational journey. For example if you don't already know to try to eliminate a wrong answer before making a guess, then maybe you should read the first few pages of this book, otherwise don't waste your money. The rest of the book is a bunch of definitions of all the words mentioned in the books description followed at the end by worthless fluff and more test tips for people retaking the test. So end of story don't waste your money on this book. It's not even worth 20 dollars let alone the 40 that they charge for it. Hope this is helpful.

Horrible book - waste of money. Their secrets are "study early - don't procratinate", "get a good night sleep", "don't panic" - really??? I paid $40 to learn those gems? They have about a paragraph on each sub-topic of the exam which is about enough to explain to lay person the barest essentials. In know way is this a study guide. It more of a generic prep for a high school student getting ready to take the SAT. It has NO specific information on the best way to take the FE. Don't bother with this book.
