Background:I graduated and received both my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Structural Engineering from the University of California, San Diego and unlike most of my classmates decided to defer taking this exam as long as I could. Why you may ask? Mainly because I never foresaw myself of taking up any interest in getting licensed since my interests coincided more with software development in my field more than actual design and consulting. Though this last point is still true, my current job encourages all it's employees to eventually get their PE license somewhere down the line so there I was having to pick myself up from the bootstrap a couple years after finishing up my coursework having to go back and re-learning basic and key concepts for the FE Exam.Everyone that took this exam have consistently told me that this exam isn't hard and as long as you're familiar with the reference handbook and key concepts, you'll be solid. Considering that you need only at least around a 50% to pass this exam and after finally taking it myself, I couldn't agree more with them. The new and updated Computer Based Testing (CBT) format of the FE Exam makes it more convenient, in my opinion, since you really only need to focus on the specific topic you studied in college instead of trying to cram all those other subjects like Chemistry or E&M, etc. for an exam that you'll soon forget after. In addition, having an electronic and completely searchable reference handbook during the exam is a major benefit for you in terms of saving time during actual D-day.Review:With all the preliminaries out of the way, this review manual does a good enough job in helping someone like me or even a fresh graduate brush up the key concepts on what to really focus on to be ready for the exam.
