  • FE Civil Practice Exam 1 (FECE1EX)


    Realistic, Full-length FE Civil Practice Exam

    Gain hands-on experience and test your knowledge in a simulated FE exam environment.

    PPI’s FE Practice Exams accurately simulate the NCEES FE exam that you will experience at a Pearson VUE testing center.

    Within reason, the similarity is as true to the actual exam as PPI could make it. The functionality, sequencing and branching options, layout, button wording, and even the basic colors are what you will experience in the actual exam. In addition to a true representation of the interface, Practice Exam questions accurately represent NCEES questions in level of difficulty, knowledge area distribution, wording, and multiple-choice formatting. As with the actual exam, Practice Exam questions are grouped by knowledge area, and they can be solved with the searchable online reference document provided.

    Some features of this Practice Exam deviate significantly from the actual NCEES FE exam functionality. These deviations are primarily for your benefit. They are: (1) the ability to pause your Practice Exam at any time for any duration; (2) immediate grading, analysis, and reporting of your results; and (3) the ability to view the full solution of any question on the exam. These features will not be present during the actual exam.

    After submitting a Practice Exam for grading, you will be provided with a detailed analysis of your performance. You may also review your responses, the correct answers, and complete solutions to all questions. Each FE Practice Exam purchase offers two Practice Exam attempts.


    Side-by-Side Reference and Problems


    PPI's FE Civil Practice Exam mimics the online experience with a side-by-side presentation of questions and reference material. Answer questions while referencing a fully searchable set of equations, tables, and figures that is equivalent to the NCEES FE Reference Handbook.


    Timed Exam Experience


    Practice answering questions with a timer to simulate the FE exam’s two sessions and break period. Use PPI's exam-like navigation--such as answer, next, previous, flag for review, and more--to avoid any hesitation during the actual FE Civil exam.


    Like the actual FE exam, PPI's Practice Exam is split into two sessions, each with approximately 55 questions (totaling 110 altogether). Schedule five hours and 20 minutes to complete both sessions, with one 25-minute break after completion of the first session. Use a 24-inch monitor to further mimic the FE exam experience.


    Immediate Practice Exam Reporting


    In addition to a simulated exam experience, PPI's FE Civil Practice Exam offers a summary of all selected answers to review prior to submission, and immediate grading after Practice Exam completion. This reporting covers performance by knowledge area, as well as access to complete solutions for all problems.

    Good, not the best out there Review by Cassandra
    I think that this practice exam is a good help in figuring out where you stand before going into the exam. I like the way that a score is given to you and the knowledge areas at the end so you know what topics to focus on. However, after going through the solutions, some problems used equations that were either not in the handbook provided by ncees at all or where changed slightly, adding an extra variable, usually. I do feel more confident after this exam, and I do not regret taking it, but I would hope that someone would check the questions and solutions and make sure that the equations needed match those in the ncees handbook.

    Awesome! Very helpful for the FE Exam. Review by Cory
    The practice exam was just like the actual FE Exam I took in January, 2015. The subjects and topic ranges for this practice exam covered enough of the material to properly prepare for test day. I was greatly appreciative of this practice exam, and I am certain it played a major role in helping me pass the FE. My only suggestion would to some how have the practice exam graded like the actual FE Exam. My colleagues and I were unaware of the actual scoring system; which made waiting for the results very nerve racking! Thank you FE Prep for an excellent practice exam, I highly recommend it to any future FE Examinees. (Posted on 1/31/2015)
