This bundle offers two essential resources for passing the FE Environmental exam the first time


Michael R. Lindeburg PE’s FE Review Manual, 3rd Edition has been helping students pass the exam for more than 20 years. It is the go-to study book for the original FE exam.


Brightwood Engineering Education's Environmental Engineering: FE Review Manual was written specifically for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Environmental CBT exam.

  • concise explanations supported by end-of-chapter exam-like example problems, with step-by-step solutions to reinforce the theory and application of fundamental concepts

  • diagnostic exams to assess your grasp of knowledge areas covered

  • equations, figures, and tables from the NCEES FE Reference Handbook to familiarize you with the reference you’ll have on exam day

  • a robust index with thousands of terms to facilitate referencing



Topics Covered














  • Mathematics

  • Probability, Statistics, and Sampling

  • Engineering Economics

  • Ethics and Professional Practices

  • Environmental Management Systems

  • Environmental Science and Ecology

Good preparation book (Brightwood Engineering Education's Environmental Engineering: FE Review Manual) Review by Amazon.com Customer
Overall
Good preparation book.
Most of the content is theory. Only 10 to 12 exercises per subject. However, it cover all the subjects. Something difficult to find specially when looking for Fe environmental preparation materials. (Posted on 2/20/2020)
For some sections the number of practice problem and examples would be better if it was more (Brightwood Engineering Education's Environmental Engineering: FE Review Manual) Review by Amazon.com Customer
Overall
The book has enough summary for each section involving in the FE Environmental exam, including some example supporting the concepts. At the end of each section there are some practice problem with solution. For some sections the number of practice problem and examples would be better if it was more, however the references at the end of each chapter can guide you for the original source if you need to study deeper.
I bought the book a month before my test, read all the chapters and solve the problems and had no problem in the FE exam afterward. And I think it is a good source for FE environmental exam and worth it to read. (Posted on 2/20/2020)
Worth the money. (Brightwood Engineering Education's Environmental Engineering: FE Review Manual) Review by Amazon.com Customer
Overall
I took the EIT once and failed. But NCEES provided me a sheet that lists the subjects I performed low in. I used this book to enhance my understanding of those topics.

There is a large number of mistakes in the book. But after I used this book. So I cant complain. (Posted on 2/20/2020)
Great Book (FE Review Manual) Review by Pankaj
Overall
This is too good to study. (Posted on 2/20/2020)
Covers all topics (Brightwood Engineering Education's Environmental Engineering: FE Review Manual) Review by Amazon.com Customer
Overall
The book covers all the topics on the exam. They skip way too many steps in the example problems though, if you don't know a topic you'll probably need more than this book. (Posted on 2/20/2020)
Both useful things, but they serve different purposes (FE Review Manual) Review by Amazon.com Customer
Overall
This is less a 'study guide' and more of a 'book of practice problems'. Both useful things, but they serve different purposes.

This book does talk about some strategies for taking the FE in the very beginning, but more along the lines of why questions are asked certain way, and less about test taking strategies. Instead, the bulk of it is practice problems from past FE exams, both for diagnostic test sections and for learning how to solve the problem with step-by-step solutions. The step-by-step parts are usually pretty clear, but they do rely on the reader knowing/remembering some mid-level theorems - these could be improved by reducing the solutions down further. But this is still the best FE prep book on the market right now.

Now, I did pass the FE and I used this book to study, but I used strategies that I found elsewhere. I'll lay them out here:
1. There is no 'passing' score for the FE. Instead, they take all the scores from the same test on that day, scale them using the unmarked 'bench marking' problems, and place the scores on the standard distribution. The bottom 25% do not pass, the top 75% do. the scaling doesn't drastically change the scores, so the FE is designed to essentially pass those who are able do better than straight guessing on a 4-part multiple choice test. This means ANSWER EVERY PROBLEM, even if it is a completely wild guess. Then use your own skills as an engineer to narrow it down to 2 choices that make sense, or actually solve it if you can in the 3-minute pacing that the FE requires.

2. If you see units, it is a unit conversion problem. Plain and simple. You don't need to remember your physics, dynamics, statics, fluids, or thermo course material and do those problems in a fraction of the pacing you got for your undergrad tests. You just need to convert the units correctly 9/10.

3. Learn to search the FE Handbook PDF by problem keyword. This is where these practice problems come particularly in handy. Don't practice the problems to memorize how to solve them. Practice spotting the keyword you need to search in the Handbook PDF they provide on the test. That way you can simply look up the information you need right off the bat and see how to do the problem. You'll still need a basic competency in solving that particular type of engineering problem - the FE handbook doesn't walk you through the formulas application step-by-step - but you don't need to memorize the formulas.

That is it for strategy, really. (Posted on 2/20/2020)
