What do our students say about our FE Mechanical exam prep course?
"I took the FE exam right out of undergrad without a study plan and was not able to pass. Eight years later, I signed up for this course, watched every minute of every lecture, did the practice problems…The course is very effective."

"Classes were very well put together, staff and teachers were eager to help everyone in the class, and the notes and practice problems really helped prepare me for the exam. Passed the test first try, after a few years out of college, I don't think I would have passed the first time on my own."

About the FE Mechanical Exam
The FE Mechanical exam consists of 110 exam questions that cover a variety of mechanical engineering topics. The exam is a Computer-Based test and examinees have six hours to complete the exam. For reference, participants may use the FE Reference Handbook to help guide them during the exam.
Examinees who take the FE Mechanical exam typically are striving to become professional mechanical engineers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Mechanical engineers design, develop, build, and test mechanical and thermal sensors and devices, including tools, engines, and machines.” Passing the FE Mechanical exam is the first step in becoming professionally licensed. Once examinees pass the FE, they can then begin preparing for the PE Mechanical exam.
According to NCEES, the national pass rate for the FE Mechanical exam between January and June 2018 was 77%. School of PE’s students had a much higher pass rate that the national average. Ready to pass the FE Mechanical exam? Sign up for a review course today!
