Mechanical P.E. Sample Exam Format

Sample Exam Details


1. Is the Sample Exam the same format as the actual exam? Yes

The sample exams are separated into a morning and afternoon session, each with 40 problems, just like the actual exam. The sample exam also has four possible solutions, with 1 correct answer and 3 other solutions that can be achieved by making common mistakes, just like the actual exam.


2. Does the sample exam cover the same topics as the actual exam? Yes

The sample exams were created based on the topics given by NCEES. Each topic is weighted by the probability that it will appear on the exam. The sample exam uses these percentages to ensure each topic is covered.


3. Does the sample exam cover the same difficulty level as the actual exam? Yes

The sample exams were created based on the following analysis. There is only 6 minutes to complete each problem on average. This indicates that the problems can not be too detailed and complex. The problems are also meant to test your ability to practice engineering. Thus the problems can not be on obscure material and must be on often practiced material.


4. Is the sample exam representative of the actual exam? Yes

This is where Engineering Pro Guides sample exams are different from other sample exams. Our sample exams are created by practicing professional engineers who have passed the PE exam and recognized that the questions on the actual exam apply directly to our work. We are able to create sample exams based on our above analysis that are most representative of the actual exam.


5. Does the sample exam provide solutions? Yes

The sample exam not only provides you a way to measure your progress and understanding of the material, the sample exam can also be used as a learning tool. The sample exam provides step by step solutions in order to help you understand the process of solving the problem.
