    If you go through this book properly and don't pass the FE, you might need to re-evaluate what went wrong in your life. Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Everyone told me that the FE was really easy if you came from a decent undergrad and took it near graduation and just look at the electronic NCEES Reference Manual they give you. And in all honesty, they're right.

    I took the FE in the summer after graduation of my undergrad in Mechanical Engineering, but I had been studying abroad, doing internships, etc. without many formula-intensive type classes in a few years, so I was kinda worried I had forgotten most of it. I rented this book and read through most of the summaries. I did a few of the quizzes if I thought I needed a brush up. But it was too much content for the time I allotted for it, so I barely touched upon the sample tests in the back.

    Now the real thing was so much easier than this book. This book wasn't too hard, but the exam (as of August 2014, anyways) was just super easy. Everything in the exam is in the Reference Manual, and you just need to be familiar with it to find it quickly. If the problem is difficult, skip it (or guess; no deductions) because that difficult question is in the minor and just there to piss you off.

    Ultimately, before the test, I went over like 60-70% of this book, and was like, "[insert whiny Tom Haverford from Parks and Rec voice] Wah, I hope it's not too hard! I hope I pass! I understood most of the book, but I hope the hard stuff doesn't come up cause I didn't understand any of it!!" But then when I came out of the test, I was like, "[Cool Tom Haverford voice] Whoa. I was way over prepared. Why was I so awesome? I should not have prepared for that test as much as that test should have prepared for me."

    In summary, this book will give you help review forgotten things, help you get familiarized with the NCEES Reference Manual, and boost your confidence knowing that it's much more difficult than the real FE. If you have a stronger constitution than I do, you could just review the Reference Manual, but this will definitely make you a lot more prepared than you need to be. (Posted on 5/7/2015)
