What PM depths are covered in the course?
The Testmasters FE/EIT course prepares students for the General exam in the morning and afternoon session.
Is the Testmasters FE/EIT Test Prep Course for me?
The Testmasters course is designed for students who have been out of school for a while. We realize that you may not have practiced many of the topics covered on the exam since college. The Testmasters' focus is to give you a concise, intensive, and structured review of the important topics needed to pass the exam. We use our workshop sessions to ensure that you get the practice applying these topics in a problem-solving environment.
How is the Testmasters FE/EIT course set up?
The Testmasters course is set up into two sections:
REVIEW COURSE: Theoretical concepts are explained to refresh and give students an understanding of important exam topics, and many example problems are worked to reinforce these concepts. The focus of the review course is to review the important concepts needed for the exam and begin to develop the student's problem-solving proficiency.
PROBLEM SOLVING WORKSHOPS: The workshops supplement the review courses for the examination. Since the actual FE/EIT examination is all problem-solving, numerous exam-like problems will be solved to give students intensive problem-solving practice to perform well on the examination. For the PE courses, the workshops focus on the depth (PM) examinations but certainly help increase the score in the breadth (AM) part of the examinations. 100% of the time is devoted to problem solving and strengthening students' proficiency in solving exam-like problems in a timed environment, similar to what you will be doing on the exam day.
For some locations, the review course and workshops are offered separately, and in other locations the review course and workshops are combined as one complete course. The Guarantee of Passing only applies when both the review course and workshops are taken together.
How is the Testmasters FE/EIT Course different from other courses?
The Testmasters FE/EIT Course Coordinator has been teaching the EIT/PE courses for over 25 years, and is very well versed with the format of the exam and what it takes to pass it. The Testmasters FE/EIT Course is focused only on the exam and helping students pass. The course is comprehensive with 72 hours of instruction for the PE courses, and 80 hours of instruction for the FE/EIT courses. In the course, concepts are reviewed and many problems are worked out in class. This helps students become familiar with solving problems that are similar to what is on the exam. The Testmasters course is not a college course which is designed for their students and covers theory. The course is focused on the exam and helping you pass.
As a result of the quality of the Testmasters FE/EIT and PE courses, we are able to offer the Guarantee of Passing. If you take and attend the Testmasters review course and workshops and do not pass the first time, you can retake the entire Testmasters FE/EIT Test Prep Course again at no charge.
How much do I have to prepare before taking the course?
Most of our students come to the course with little or no preparation. However, if you have been out of school for many years, we would recommend that to get the most out of the courses, some preparation would be helpful. Knowing the fundamentals while in the Testmasters course will help you grasp the information more quickly and focus on learning the material taught in the course. You can pick up any engineering book to begin reviewing the topics covered on the exam before the first Testmasters FE/EIT class.
How does the Guarantee of Passing work?
If you attend every class of the Testmasters review course and workshops and don't pass, you can repeat the next Testmasters FE/EIT review course and workshops absolutely free. To get the guarantee for the FE/EIT, you must take the next actual examination given after the completion of the course. For the Principles and Practice examinations, the actual examination must be taken within nine months after completion of the course. The free repeat is limited to only one time, and it must be used in the next course offered after the results of the actual examination have come in. Subsequent repeats within 18 months will be at 50% of the regular fee. No course is guaranteed to be offered at the previous location or every time the actual examination is given. There are no workshops for chemical and environmental engineering and therefore no guarantee of passing applies.
Does the Guarantee of Passing still apply if I miss a class?
All classes within a Testmasters course need to be attended for the Guarantee of Passing. This is also for your benefit, as attending all classes will increase your chances of passing. However, we understand that sometimes unavoidable circumstances come up and you are unable to attend. For that reason, we are flexible in allowing you to miss up to one topic session per Testmasters FE/EIT course, and the guarantee will still apply.
Who teaches the classes in the Testmasters FE/EIT Test Prep Course?
Testmasters' instructors come from the industry and academia, and are highly qualified in their specialized fields. They have taught EIT/PE courses for many years at various companies including Central and Southwest Services, Bechtel, Kellogg, Fluor, Sirrine, Lummus, Ericsson, Texas Instruments, Foster Wheeler Energy Corp., Texas Department of Transportation, Virginia Department of Transportation, Utility Engineering, and the City of Austin Electric Utility Department.
Where are the Testmasters classes conducted?
Because we have many students attending the Testmasters FE/EIT Test Prep Course from out-of-town, we usually conduct our classes in classrooms at hotels. For students needing to stay overnight, our group has discounted sleeping room rates with the hotel. This information will be provided after registration.
What calculator can I use on the exam?
Following is a list of the ONLY calculators that will be allowed in the testing room (valid as of the 2008 exams):
- Hewlett Packard - HP 33s or HP35S
- Casio - All FX 115 models. Any Casio calculator must contain FX-115 in its model name.
- Texas Instruments - TI 30X or TI 36X. Any Texas Instruments calculator must contain either TI-30X or TI-36X in its model name.
Each year, NCEES will review the approved calculator list and announce updates by November 15. If you are deciding which calculator to buy, we recommend visiting your local electronics store and trying out each of the different calculators to see which one you feel the most comfortable using. Be sure to bring the calculator you plan to use on the exam to the first day of class. You can visit www.ncees.org to view their latest calculator policy.
