PE Mechanical FAQs

You will have 9 hours to complete the exam, which contains 80 questions.
The PE Mechanical exam can be difficult. The exam tests your competency in all aspects of mechanical engineering and should not be taken lightly. You should plan on taking several weeks to prepare and study before sitting for the exam. The average pass rate for first-time test takers during the last exam was about 74%.
Unfortunately, no. In April 2020, the exam changed to a closed-book, computer-based test (CBT) that is available to take year-round. The exam topics have not changed; however, you will not be able to bring any books into the exam. Your only reference will be an electronic reference supplied by NCEES.
The PE Mechanical exam tests for a minimum level of competency in mechanical engineering. You need a minimum of four years of post-college work experience to be able to sit for the exam.
This depends on your exam. The topics on the Power, Electronics, and Computer exams do differ. For more information on specifications for your exam, please visit NCEES here

"The structure provided by the course is what I needed to force myself to sit down and study. The knowledge and test-taking tips from the instructor were very helpful. Course notes were a great reference on the exam. Quite often, class examples were very representative of actual exam problems."
