    Wonderful, comprehensive and informative (Posted on 12/5/2019)
    Five Stars Review by Amazon Customer
    Very comprehensive set of FE prep questions. (Posted on 12/5/2019)
    In-Depth Review by Mohammad
    I liked the answers, that is really how I learned after not knowing the solution. They were very indepth questions, so once you understand how the answeris acheived, you really know how to tackle easier problems. (Posted on 12/5/2019)

    Get ready for the FE Mechanical Exam with this comprehensive study book. Review by Amazon Customer
    This comprehensive study for the Computer-Based FE Mechanical Exam covers the exam topics :
    Computational Tools
    Dynamics, Kinematics, and Vibrations
    Electricity and Magnetism
    Engineering Economics
    Ethics and Professional Practice
    Fluid Mechanics
    Heat Transfer
    Material Properties and Processing Mathematics

    This has 460 multiple-choice problems of topics covered on the NCEES Mechanical FE exam. They are designed to be solved in three minutes or less get you ready for the format and difficulty of the exam, and to get you to concentrate on individual engineering concepts." Like the exam, problems are grouped by engineering topic".

    Easy to understand solutions are include with "step-by-step calculations use equations and nomenclature from the NCEES FE Reference Handbook to help increase your familiar"

    This is a great book that can be used byalone to study or with FE Mechanical Review Manual as this follows it. (Posted on 12/5/2019)
    More than 460 multiple-choice practice questions to go with the FE Mechanical Review Manual ... Review by Amazon Customer
    This is the companion manual to the FE Mechanical Review Manual. I also have that and I’m going to include my review of that one below. This one of course are much needed practice problems that will enable the user to get some much needed practice. Three minutes is the target number everyone needs to aim for in order to get through the exam.

    There are more than 460 multiple-choice questions to work through in this book. In addition there are several online study aids / features that can be accessed (there’s a code in front of the book). As far as the book goes, I do like the uncluttered feel. For some reason, that does make a difference. I don’t like pages that are so jam packed they make feel claustrophobic.

    Topics include mathematics, probability and statistics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, statics, material properties and processing, mechanics of materials, electricity and magnetism, dynamics, kinematics, and vibrations, mechanical design and analysis, measurement, instrumentation, and controls, computational tools, engineering economics, and ethics and professional practice.

    Answers are in the back of each chapter rather than in the back of the book. When I look at problems, I hate to have to do a major search to find them. The answers are given with explanations of the solution. I would have like to have seen both manuals combined, but for some this may be a workable layout.


    There have been exam changes on the FE and there’s no better way than using an up-to-date manual to practice on. At this point in time there are 110 multiple-choice questions and you’ll have six hours to complete them. If you do the math it’s easy to see you’ll only have a few minutes to answer each question. The areas covered in the exam include:

    ► Mathematics
    ► Probability and Statistics
    ► Engineering Economics
    ► Statics
    ► Dynamics, Kinematics, and Vibrations
    ► Mechanics of Materials
    ► Fluid Mechanics
    ► Thermodynamics
    ► Heat Transfer

    All of these are very thoroughly covered in the FE Mechanical Review Manual. Just checking around the net shows me that a prep course can cost up to a whopping $900. Add the FE Mechanical Practice Problems manual and you’re looking at a bargain. It doesn’t seem like one until you do some comparative shopping.

    Are you going to pass? If you are conscientious about studying and really work through the prep book and the practice problem one (I highly recommend getting it), it is guaranteed you’ll pass. If by chance you don’t, there are instructions on the inside for a total refund. You probably won’t need it, but you won’t need an expensive course either.

    The topics do cover everything on the exam plus some. You’ve taken the courses, but each chapter has a comprehensive summation of what you’ve learned with a sufficient amount of example material to job your memory. For example, when you’re looking at the chapter on combustion, you’ll review heats of reaction and combustion. Small highlighted sidebars show Hess’ Law, Enthalpy of Reaction, Air-Fuel Ratios, and Percent Theoretical Air equations. You’ll then find descriptions of each, a sample question, and a solution.

    There are several small mini-exams, but I primarily see this as a study guide in which to review materials. There are numerous tables, charts, graphs, and other visual materials scattered throughout the book. More support can be found on the publisher’s website. In the case of this book, you get what you pay for ... a guarantee you’ll pass the FE exam (Posted on 12/5/2019)
    Problems and solutions Review by Amazon Customer
    This book contains 400+ practice problems with well-explained solutions covering the concepts needed to pass the Mechanical Fundamentals of Engineering Exam. It is intended to be used as one part of a comprehensive plan of preparation and the author clearly outlines the the limitations.

    One page of general advice for the exam is included. A key to online resources is also included, but they are limited and do not include practice problems.

    The practice problems cover sixteen of the seventeen topics included on the exam, omitting Licensure. The topics are further divided into subject chapters.

    I - Mathematics
    II - Probability and Statistics
    III - Fluid Mechanics
    IV - Thermodynamics
    V - Heat Transfer
    VI - Statics
    VII - Material Properties and Processing
    VIII - Mechanics of Materials
    IV - Electricity and Magnetism
    X - Dynamics, Kinematics, and Vibrations
    XII - Mechanical Design and Analysis
    XII - Measurement, Instrumentation, and Controls
    XII - Computational Tools
    XIV - Engineering Economics
    XV - Ethics and Professional Practice (Posted on 12/5/2019)
    A tremendous help in test taking Review by Amazon Customer
    This is a guide to taking the test and not so much a general study manual.. It covers the areas that will appear in the test. Especially helpful to those who are well geared to the technical aspects but not as much general ones as pertaining to the field are the ones on ethical practices. That's an area that could throw some test takers and is wise to be prepared for.
