Format: Paperback
Update 07/18/2016: This "FE Review Manual" was for the old-style, 8-hour-long, pencil-and-paper Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. Visit the NCEES website (search: NCEES FE) for an explanation of the new, shorter, computer-based exam. While there: (1) make a copy of the exam specification for your FE exam; (2) watch the video on how to use the NCEES Reference Manual; and (3) download a copy of the NCEES Reference Manual. Instead of using the “FE Review Manual,” you should study from a review manual that has been updated for the new, discipline-specific computer-based FE exam (FE Mechanical; FE Electrical and Computer; FE Civil; FE Chemical; FE Environmental; FE Industrial and Systems; and FE Other Disciplines). PPI and Kaplan have review manuals for the new FE exam (“FE Mechanical Review Manual”; “FE Electrical and Computer Review Manual”; “FE Civil Review Manual”; and “FE Chemical Review Manual). With these up-to-date review manuals, you don’t need the "FE Review Manual" or the old discipline-specific review manuals (which were for the afternoon section of the old exam). You could conceivably prepare for the new FE exam using a copy of the old “FE Review Manual” and the exam specification for your exam to guide your studies (you can find the exam specification on the NCEES website).

Update 03/20/14: The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is now administered as a computer-based exam. Check out the NCEES website and YouTube channel (NCEES Media) for details. The website also provides a practice exam. While the old 180-question exam was 8 hours in duration, the new 110-question (multiple-choice) exam has been shortened to 5 hours and 20 minutes. The total appointment time is 6 hours, which includes time for orientation and a break.

The FE 2014 exam is now disciple specific, that means there is no morning-after noon section at 4 hours each, its one 6 hour exam for your chosen discipline. This means you need to know the specific sections that are called out for each particular exam.

I am an EE, and this book only covers about 2/5-1/2(at best) of the material i need to study, so if you're looking to take this exam, this is only a supplemental review, you NEED another good electrical specific book. DO NOT buy the ones from PPI or Lindeburg, they are not updated for the 2014 exam, they are only questions and overall what you get for what you pay is awful.

Please be aware of the changes to the exam before buying any study material !!!

This book is very helpful. If you are taking the general ("other disciplines") exam, this is book is all you need. Read it all.

If not taking the general exam, you need to know the following to comfortably pass.

The morning session is very easy. Unfortunately this book combines the morning session style questions with the afternoon session for those that choose the general for the afternoon. Thus, you can waste time studying the harder problems if you are taking a discipline specific afternoon exam.

So, read the text of most sections (except biology and some of the more advanced topics). Work all the sample problems (first five of each section) and know them backwards. Quickly scan through the "FE style" problems (read problem then read solution) but ignore the more difficult questions. Basically spend only 35% of your study time on this book.

Get the discipline specific book from Lindeberg and spend 65% of your time on it. It is very thin. Memorize it. The exam doesn't change much over the years, and this will not only make exam day a breeze, but it will definitely help prepare you for the PE.

The exam is pass/fail based on a scaled score of 70. All that means is they will adjust up or down the raw score based on the national performance of all test takers on a number of certain test questions that they use over time to gauge the quality of the test taking group. The way you make up ground on others is by spending time on the discipline specific portion. The morning test proves you can think. As such, there are a lot of problems that you have to be able to answer quickly. The afternoon demonstrates what you know. You can take your time, but you have to know how to solve those problems before you walk in the door.

Why bother with a 4 year engineering degree when you have Lindeburg?

I am a law student, and I NEEDED to pass the FE to attain patent bar eligibility. I'd never studied engineering in my life, although I did major in mathematics in undergraduate, which did prove helpful. I picked up Lindeburg's 2nd edition manual, and I dedicated 5 weeks to this book. I was also a full time law student and working part time at an awful firm 20 hours a week. I spend every spare minute with it, flew to Michigan in April, and I passed the FE on my first try.

There's no way I would've passed without this book, and I recommend it to EVERYONE. I actually love it. I am now applying to engineering schools to pursue a masters in electrical engineering because I found this book so inspiring. If you want to pass the FE, buy this book.
