2023 FE Exam Practice Test ! (Can you Pass?)


Are you ready for the 2022 FE Exam?  Think you are ready to pass it?  Are you up to the Challenge of trying to solve 6 FE Exam questions? Let's see how well you do. 

This sample set will let you see how the problems are structured in the BOOK and show you examples with detailed step-by-step solutions that reference page numbers from the FE Handbook. It will give you a honest chance to evaluate the practice exams and try it before you buy it. These are basic type FE Exam questions for any discipline - which means, you should know how to work them ! 


Problem Recognition Skills:

The key to passing the FE Exam really comes down to developing problem recognition skills. You'll learn more about this in the BOOK and how to take advantage of it. Also, during the exam, you will learn simply use the search function on the FE Handbook to find the right equation and then solve it. Must problems only require a few steps in order to solve it. Of course, there will be hard problems, but just skip those. Therefore, all you need is a set of solved example problems in each topic area. It’s that simple. 

That is the purpose of this book. Don't worry if you can't solve these problems. You CAN pass this exam - with a little help and encouragement from the book. The first step is just getting started. Many of our customers find us too late and have one - or a few - failed attempts already.  But if you fall into this category, don't worry. It really doesn't matter how many times you failed before.. you only have to be right ONE TIME! You only have to pass this Exam ONE TIME.  

It doesn't matter how many times you win, all that matters is how many times you get knocked down but get back up and try again - because the Law of Averages will tend to go in your favor if you keep trying and never quit. That works in life, passing an exam, working your way up the company ladder, starting an online business, etc.

 (2A newly designed square semi conductor chip (k = 175 W/m∙K) has a width w = 9 mm on a side and a thickness t = 3 mm. 

The chip is mounted in a substrate such that its side and back surfaces are insulated, while the front surface is exposed to a coolant. 

If 92 W are being dissipated in circuits mounted to the back surface of the chip, what is the steady-state temperature difference between back and front surfaces?

(A) 58%

(B) 52%

(C) 75%


(D) 5%



6) At one section of its track, a roller coaster travels in a straight line so that its distance, D, from a point on the line after time, t, is D = 10t4 – t3.  Calculate its velocity when time = 3:
