If you are taking the Mechanical discipline-specific exam in the afternoon, I do not recommend the companion review manual by Saad, Tabrizi, and Lindeburg. Rather, buy "FE/EIT Mechanical: Discipline-Specific Review for the FE/EIT Exam" by Merle C. Potter (see my review there). I cannot speak from experience for any other discipline-specific exams.
Also, it is essential that you buy "Fundamentals of Engineering Supplied-Reference Handbook" by NCEES. Use this as your only reference when trying to work problems, as it will be all you have during the actual exam.
The book also contains a practice test for the morning and afternoon general exams. I personally chose to take the discipline specific afternoon exam. The reason being is because I'm an electrical engineer. The majority of the general exam is civil/mechanical engineering. I felt it would increase my chances of passing. Let me tell you, I chose wisely. I passed the exam the first time around because of this book (and my decision). I highly recommend it for any engineer planning to prepare for the exam.
The book is broken down by category, with an introductory section followed by example problems. The introductions, while simple, are perfect for getting your mind back in the groove of those classes you took three years ago.
Print off the official reference handbook (you WILL be doing a LOT of flipping through this during the test) and work through your weakest sections first. After I went through the weakest sections I went straight for my strongest subjects. The point is to pass, you don't need to be good at every subject, and you CAN pass by knowing a few categories really well.
The problems really are harder in this book than on the actual exam. When I did the practice problems I knew how to do maybe 1%, and half of those I did wrong anyway. Just make sure you understand how to do it correctly, it doesn't matter if you know it off the top of your head while you are studying this stuff for the first time in 3 years. When I got to the test, the questions seemed very easy and straightforward because I had struggled through the concepts while studying.
Anyway, I did pass despite the fact that I really only studied maybe 15 hours for the test. I don't recommend not studying, but this book is the perfect condensed study guide.
By the way, I also keep it around as a GREAT reference book for all those things you know you learned at one time, but have since forgotten. You don't just have to throw it away after.
