Now published on an annual basis for the closed-book EIT/FE exam, this volume has been thoroughly revised to provide an up-to-date, systematic review of the fundamentals of engineering, with each chapter written by an expert in the field. The introduction describes the exam, its structure, exam day strategies, exam scoring and passing rate statistics. The exam topics covered are: mathematics, statics, dynamics, mechanics of materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electrical circuits, materials engineering, chemistry, computers, ethics, and engineering economy. The topics carefully match the structure of the closed-book exam and the notation of the problems to illustrate the technical presentation. Multiple-choice practice problems with detailed solutions are included at the end of each chapter. A complete 8-hour EIT/FE sample exam is provided with 120 multiple-choice morning problems and 60 multiple-choice general afternoon problems. Following the sample exam, complete step-by-step solutions are given. The text is divided 60 per cent written and 40 per cent problems and more
