FAQs

There are a few ways to begin your FE prep depending on time available, content knowledge, and more—but these six steps will put you on a path for success no matter where you stand.

  1. Get the NCEES FE Reference Handbook, and use it alongside your FE Review Manual.
  2. Determine which knowledge areas you need more help with through your FE Review Manual’s diagnostic exams.
  3. Make a schedule before beginning to ensure you can cover all of the exam topics.
  4. Work through every exam subject—skipping your weaker subjects won’t prepare you for success.
  5. Be thorough. Don’t skip over any problems, solutions, or necessary reference materials.
  6. Complete as many practice problems as possible. Fast recall will be critical on the FE exam and developing an instinct for how problems look will help you succeed.

“The instructor was so helpful and professional, not to mention very patient with us all. I cannot thank the folks at PPI enough! They have been very helpful throughout the entire process, even before the course began. Thank you!"
Kevin
“After researching several study courses, I decided to enroll in the PPI review course for the FE. I chose it primarily for the schedule. It was flexible enough to allow me to study AND still have time for my wife and two young kids...not to mention working full time. I took the FE immediately following the course and PASSED!”
