Course Content

Students will be required to enroll in a PPI FE Prep University online FE review course. The course includes an online review book, a quiz generator with thousands of practice problems, diagnostic exams for identifying strengths and weaknesses, a study plan, and two practice exams that simulate the NCEES FE exam.


This is a pass/fail course. In order to pass this course you will need to do three things:

  1. Complete the PPI FE Prep University course of study AND

  2. Register and sit for the FE examination AND

  3. Pass the real FE examination OR pass one of the two FE Prep University practice exams with a score of 70% or better ON THE FIRST TRY.

When you take the FE exam, the testing center will provide you with a receipt to verify that you completed the exam. Please bring me a copy of that receipt to get credit for having taken it. I have access to your practice exam scores through my PPI instructor dashboard so you do not need to bring me proof of having passed Practice Exam 2.

You will have all semester and then some to complete the online course, take the practice exams, and sit for the FE. If you do not take the real FE and/or Practice Exam 2 before the end of the semester, I will assign you a grade of Incomplete. You will then have until June 18 to complete those tasks in order to earn a grade of Successful. If you cannot successfully complete the 3 tasks above by June 18, you will earn a grade of Unsuccessful and will have to take CIVL 4197 over again.
