    example problems Review by ronald
    good assortment of problems (Posted on 5/9/2018)

    Study this book and pass the FS exam Review by KARL
    I bought the third edition of this book and studied and worked each chapter until I could score 80 percent or better. Rework the problems you miss, then redo the chapter. The book is well organized, and if you work it systematically, taking the NCEES FS exam will not be difficult. (Posted on 12/10/2014)
