    FE Chemical Review Manual (FECHRM)

    New. The Most Comprehensive Book for the Computer-Based FE Chemical Exam

    The FE Chemical Review Manual offers complete coverage of Chemical FE exam knowledge areas and the relevant elements—equations, figures, and tables—from the NCEES FE Reference Handbook. With 16 mini-exams to assess your grasp of the exam’s knowledge areas, and concise explanations of thousands of equations and hundreds of figures and tables, the Review Manual contains everything you need to successfully prepare for the Chemical FE exam.


    The Review Manual organizes the Handbook elements logically, grouping related concepts that the Handbook has in disparate locations. All Handbook elements are shown in blue for easy identification. Equations and their associated variations and values are clearly presented. Descriptions are succinct and supported by exam-like example problems, with step-by-step solutions to reinforce the theory and application of fundamental concepts. Thousands of terms are indexed to facilitate cross-referencing. 


    Use the Review Manual in your FE exam preparation and get the power to pass the first time—guaranteed.*

    Excellent format for a study guide - pass that test! Review by Amazon.com Customer
    I'll trust that if you're looking at this book, you know exactly what you're looking for as far as subject matter - but you may be wondering if you want to drop the cash to buy this one. So rather than state how great it is to have all the information condensed into a single book, I'm going to focus more on the format, rather than the content.

    But first - the content is there - it's a hefty book that should probably have the table of contents in the product description.

    The format? Very easy to follow, especially if you're..you know, studying to pass the exam. Each section follows the same format - a description of the topic, an example that includes a "work through this" type of problem, and a solution with all the work shown (or reasoning behind the answer declared. While not all topics have the "example question," the ones that don't have significant description that explains the concept fully.

    Since the major topics aren't listed in the product description, they are:
    1. Mathematics
    2. Probability and Statistics
    3. Fluid Mechanics/Dynamics
    4. Thermodynamics
    5. Chemistry
    6. Heat Transfer
    7. Engineering Sciences
    8. Materials Science
    9. Chemical Reaction Engineering
    10. Mass Transfer
    11. Unit Processes
    12. Process Design and Economics
    13. Safety, Health, and Environment
    14. Computational Tools
    15. Ethics and Professional Practice

    For me, the content is there but the format is designed to really reinforce the knowledge. That said, if you're learning any of the topics for the first time, you'll probably want another book to accompany this, as this is very to-the-point about what needs to get done, and its purpose isn't to delve into the academic theory and reasoning behind it (though it does an admirable job, for a review/study guide.) Recommended. (Posted on 9/27/2016)

    Solid review manual with a money back guarentee Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Professional licensing exams are always a big step in any career, and usually cause some anxiety in those getting ready to take them. The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is generally the first step in the process to becoming a professional licensed engineer (P.E.). Since 2014, the FE exam is a computer-based exam, a significant change in style and test-taking from the previous paper-based test. As a result, you'll need updated study materials and strategy to prepare for the test. During the test, you will be provided with an electronic NCEES FE Reference Handbook, as well as a computer based on-screen calculator program, as your only other tools during the 6 hour test. The test covers sixteen areas of knowledge: Mathematics; Probability and Statistics; Engineering Sciences; Computational Tools; Materials Science; Chemistry; Fluid Mechanics and Dynamics; Thermodynamics; Material and Energy Balances; Heat Transfer; Mass Transfer and Separation; Chemical Reaction Engineering; Process Design and Economics; Process Control; Safety, Health and Environment; and Ethics and Professional Practice. Chances are good you have never taken a test like this before, so good preparation is vital.

    The FE Chemical Review Manual will be a big help in preparing you for the exam. It covers the sixteen areas of knowledge well, so if you work through the review manual you should be able to find areas of strength and weakness to further refine your studies. It also includes practice questions, and gives keen insight with comments on some of the subtle differences you may find based on the NCEES FE Reference Handbook. For example, it gives a short discussion specifically on how the handbook presents the net work differently from net heat in a basic cycle--that's something good to know *before* you're in the test. With the manual, you have 800 pages of solid, high value review materials to get you ready for the test. The manual also incused a free trial access for the online web book at feprep.com. The manual there also allows you to read the book on any web-enabled device; add electronic notes and bookmarks; perform a full text search; and answer questions in an interactive format.

    The book is only one part of the strategy outlined in the manual for how to pass the exam. In addition to the book, they recommend further study in those areas you find you are weak (kind of a no-brainer); obtaining your own copy of the NCEES FE Reference Handbook as part of your preparation (you *really* don't want to have the first time you see the handbook on the day of the test where you're supposed to use it--only place to get one is on the MyNCEES website; use the version appropriate for the test dates you're planning on taking); and taking computer-based practice tests to get you used to the format you will see on the "real" test. Again, you can find computer-based practice exams on MyNCEES which use actual questions used on past exams.

    That being said, it is worth noting that the authors are so convinced you'll pass the test with their review method, they will refund you the purchase price of your book if you do not pass the FE exam. It's also worth noting that in 2015, for first time test takers, all having attended EAC/ABET-accredited engineering programs and taking the test within 12 months of graduation, only 75% passed the exam. You've spent years in undergrad getting ready for this, so anything that improves your chances at passing is a good deal. You're not going to find a better review manual that covers every topic you'll be tested on, much less one with a money-back guarantee. (Posted on 9/27/2016)
