NCEES announced that the computer-based Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and Fundamentals of Surveying (FS) exams will begin to feature alternative item type (AIT) questions beginning July 1, 2017.

Previously, the FE and FS exams only asked questions in a multiple-choice format. The new AIT questions will feature multiple formats including drag and drop questions, fill in the blank questions and questions where multiple correct answers are selected.

Although the question style is changing in July, the content of each exam will remain relatively the same. According to NCEES, those taking the computer-based exams should expect 10 percent of the questions to be AITs, and the remaining questions will be in the traditional multiple choice format.

School of PE offers review courses for those preparing to take the computer-based FE or FS exam. School of PE offers FE Chemical, FE Civil, FE Electrical, FE Environmental, FE Industrial, FE Mechanical, FE Other (General) and FS exam review courses.

The FE and FS review courses include 72 hours of comprehensive review with practice sections. School of PE offers these classes via Ondemand and Live Online learning formats.

Live Online courses are instructor-led classes that are taken online at a scheduled time. These classes are recorded, and the recordings are made available for students to review after each class.

The Ondemand option allows students with busy schedules to review the material at their own convenience.

Early registration discounts for FE and FS classes are available but will expire soon. School of PE is currently offering $300 off Live Online classes and discounts for combining the Live Online with the Ondemand learning format.

Because the overall content of the FE and FS exams is not changing, School of PE is confident that both the Ondemand format and Live Online format will provide students with the information needed to pass an NCEES exam. The instructors at School of PE will continue to provide a deep refresher of each topic and review how to work out problems that will most likely appear on the exam.
