FE style Mock Exam

Due to the demand, logistics and complexity of offering each and every discipline, this FE review course will focus on the **"Other Disciplines" **(formerly general) specification of the exam. The other disciplines specification will give you the best chance of passing the exam if you have been out of school for a while.

All of the courses listed below will be covered in the FE review course. The information listed below is obtained from the NCEES website.

Effective Beginning with the January 2014 Examinations:

- The FE exam is a computer-based test (CBT). It is closed book with an electronic reference.
- Examinees have 6 hours to complete the exam, which contains 110 multiple-choice questions. The 6-hour time also includes a tutorial, a break, and a brief survey at the conclusion.
- The FE exam uses both the International System of Units (SI) and the US Customary System (USCS).
