What did it cost me to prepare for the FE exam?
Ten years out of school, I found the FE exam to be among the worst 8 hours of my life.� Profit by my example--don't wait so long.� Take it while you're in school or just graduated, whether you think you might need it or not.� You'll thank me later!
Buy the FE Review Manual!� Start studying 6 months in advance of the test to ensure you have enough time to pace yourself. read every chapter, work every problem.� Take at least 2 sample exams at least one week before the actual exam.
Here's what it COST me...�� It may be overboard, but that's what I needed to prepare.
Project Management Workshop
The Project Management Academy of Sinclair Community College is offering our sustaining member firms a training opportunity of a lifetime worth 2.8 CEUs.� The course is intended for young members.� It'll provide an accelerated overview of project management and its application.� It'll excite engineers about the project management process and show benefits of managing successful projects.� Instruction is broken into two parts: (1) project management concepts, and (2) applying the concepts to actual projects that each engineer brings to the workshop.� If we can gather 11 to 15 engineers for a workshop, it'll only cost $500 per person.� What a deal!
