School of PE Provides Extra Features to Help Students Who Have Been Out of School for a While for FE, PE Exams

Dec 07, 2018

As an NCEES exam prep provider, School of PE assists students of all ages - ranging from undergraduate students to professionals who have been out of School for a while. We strive to help every student feel confidently prepared for their chosen exam.

If you've been out of school for a while, there might be common engineering concepts that are not fresh in your mind and you may be wondering how to prepare for an NCEES exam. We hear this concern a lot and have created special features for students who may need a little refresher before diving into our main review course. These features include our Free Basic Engineering Math and Free Calculator training.

Free Basic Engineering Math

Let's face it, math is essential for engineers during day-to-day routines. If you are preparing for an NCEES exam, it is extremely important that you fully understand basic engineering math. If you have been out of school for a while and need to take an NCEES exam soon, it may be a good idea to have a refresher on engineering mathematics.

School of PE offers a Free Basic Engineering Math video to help students refresh their basic math skills so that they can have a solid understanding of engineering mathematics. When you register for an exam review course with School of PE, you will receive a three-hour basic math review video. We also provide supplemental materials for you to download and print. These documents are meant to use to take notes with. If you are taking a pencil and paper exam, such as the PE Civil exam, you can bind these notes and bring them into the exam to use as a reference.

Free Calculator Training

When taking an FE, PE, SE, or Surveying exam, understanding your calculator is very important. Not only is it important to get the correct answers but knowing how to properly use your calculator can help you save valuable time during the exam.

NCEES has a specific list of approved calculators that may be used on the exam. Many of these calculators have similar functions, but the most popular calculator (and the best calculator for the FE and PE exam, in our opinion) is the Casio FX-115 model. We've heard back from our students and our video was extremely helpful for people who have been out of school for a while and need a refresher on engineering calculator functions.

Passing an NCEES exam is a big deal, no matter how long you've been out of school for. We, at School of PE, are dedicated in helping every student pass their exams. Sign up for a review course today!
