  • FE Mechanical Practice Exam 1 (FEME1EX)


    Realistic, Full-length FE Mechanical 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 Mechanical 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 Mechanical 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 Mechanical 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 for FE Mech Prep Review by Lauren
    This practice exam definitely helped me prepare for the FE, but I did find it a little more difficult than the actual exam. Perhaps this is what helped me to pass, though! (Posted on 6/14/2016)

    Very useful. Review by Ryan
    This exam was very helpful. I came across several questions that aided me on the actual exam which helped me pass. (Posted on 5/3/2016)
