5 Common Reasons of Failure for FE Electrical and Computer Exam
1 – Underestimating the challenge
There’s no doubt about the fact that the FE Electrical and Computer exam is challenging and expected failure. You are tested quite literally on all 4 years of ECE undergraduate coursework. The exam tests you on 17 sections including Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, Ethics and Professional Practice, Engineering Economics, Properties of Electrical Materials, Circuit Analysis, Linear Systems, Signal Processing, Electronics, Power Systems, Electromagnetics, Control Systems, Communications, Computer Networks, Digital Systems, Computer Systems and Software Engineering.

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam is not a walk in the park for most students which means you might face the failure. It is even more challenging if you are not a recent graduate. Based on the latest stats provided by NCEES, failure rate among first time exam takers who graduated within 12-24 months is 23% and that for repeat takers is as high as 35%.
