FE Practice Test with Complete Solutions: General Engineering

    In Fall 2003, five teachers in the College of Engineering at the University of South Florida contributed questions for a Fundamentals of Engineering Question of the Day website (http://fe.eng.usf.edu).  On this website, everyday a question posed with multiple choices is selected randomly from a pool of questions.  The user gets the feedback about the choice he/she makes, and can seek a hint to answer the question.  

Over the years, we have received queries from our website visitors if we could provide them with the complete solutions to all the questions in the test bank.  Since we did not have a fair coverage of some of the topics, in Spring 2009, three more teachers joined the original group to provide a complete coverage of the topics for the General Engineering examination.  We are now presenting this information to you at a nominal charge as a
soft-cover book.

The book is divided into twelve sections that have been established for the Fundamental of Engineering (General Engineering) examination by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES).

All questions are in the format of: question – choices – hint – solution – correct answer – contributor.  Please try to answer the question yourself, as that would help you prepare better for the examination.  You could also use the book along with the Question of the Day website.

If you have any comments, suggestions, or corrections, please send them to
