Preface to FE Handbook

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is computer-based, and the FE Reference Handbook is the only resource material you may use during the exam.

Reviewing it before exam day will help you become familiar with the charts, formulas, tables, and other reference information provided.

You won’t be allowed to bring your personal copy of the Handbook into the exam room. Instead, the computer-based exam will include a PDF version of the Handbook for your use.

No printed copies of the Handbook will be allowed in the exam room. The PDF version of the FE Reference Handbook that you use on exam day will be very similar to the printed version.

Pages not needed to solve exam questions—such as the cover, introductory material, and exam specifications—will not be included in the PDF version.

In addition, NCEES will periodically revise and update the Handbook, and each FE exam will be administered using the updated version.

The FE Reference Handbook does not contain all the information required to answer every question on the exam.

Basic theories, conversions, formulas, and definitions examinees are expected to know have not been included. Special material required for the solution of a particular exam question will be included in the question itself.
