Anyone taken the FE exam recently ?

Fundamentals of Engineering - the first step to becoming a licensed Professional Engineer. My FE exam is on saturday, I just graduated school (BS Mech. Engrng. technology) in June, so most of the stuff is fresh (6years in the navy shouldnt hurt either...)

Can anyone help me out ? did it suck ? did you fail a couple of times before passing ? any stories ?

piece of cake, at least the morning session was. This was in 1981, probably a bit different now. Now is the time to take the EIT, not 10 years after school.....

They called it the Engineer-in-Training exam when I took it in 1981. Since you are just out of school, you shouldn't have any problem with it. I found the EIT to be more challenging than the Professional Engineer's exam. I think they dumb-down the PE test because they know that people have been out of school for a while.

It's been so many years, I don't remember much about either exam. On one of the tests, I think it was the PE, you get to pick which questions to answer. My degree is in mechanical engineering, but I wound up answering several questions from the civil engineering section - water tanks on hills connected to piping systems, that sort of thing.

I don't think the EIT or the PE have many super challenging questions, but I do recall having more time pressure on the EIT. Lots of questions. So move it along and you'll be fine.
