2 Things You Need to Know to PASS Your FE Exam in 2024

If you’re getting ready to take your FE exam in 2024, you’re in the right place.

Today, we’re going to share two major tips that hundreds of successful students used to pass their FE exams. These aren’t just any tips; these are proven strategies that can make your FE exam prep smoother and more effective. This advice is the result of several conversations I had with our former students on our FE Exam Success Stories

So, are you ready to become an E.I.T this year? Let’s dive right into these essential FE exam strategies and get you set for success!

1. Choosing the Right Study Resources:

A. Understanding The Reference handbook

First and foremost, familiarize yourself with the Reference Handbook – your guide to the  FE Exam. It’s the only reference material you’ll have during the test, so knowing its layout, content, and how to switfly navigate to formulas and tables is crucial. Using it regularly in your studies not only builds familiarity but also boosts your efficiency during the exam. For tips on navigating the Handbook quickly, check out this video.

B. Selecting The Right Study Material

Next, it’s crucial to choose study materials that cover the topics listed in the exam specifications. Take your time to research and pick resources that are up-to-date and align with your learning style and schedule. Avoid outdated materials and consider how your daily life – whether it’s a busy job or family commitments – will impact your studying.

For those planning to take their time while studying for the FE, consider courses offering lifetime access. Nobody wants to be in a position where they have to continuously repurchase courses that only have a 3 months access.

If you’re exploring courses, we recommend watching our course overview video on youtube we talk about FE Prep Courses under 1k.

c. Practice Exams:

Regular practice exams are essential to familiarize yourself with the exam format and timing. We recommend taking at least 3 practice exams before your actual exam. For recommendations on which practice exams to take, watch this video.

2. Time Management

Effective time management is the cornerstone of your FE exam prep. Amidst the hustle of work and personal commitments, carving out at least an hour a day for focused study is vital. Consistency is the key to success. If you’re unsure how to manage your study time effectively, our video on time-blocking techniques can be a great start.

Remember, everyone’s schedule is different. One of our students would wake up at 4 am to study because that was the only quiet time available. By sticking to this schedule, she passed her exam in six months. It’s about finding what works for you and committing to it, no matter how long it takes.


Selecting the right study resources and managing your time effectively are crucial for FE Exam success.

With the right materials and a consistent study schedule, passing the FE exam becomes not just a possibility but a definite goal. 

Remember, it’s about showing up every day, staying committed, and using resources that cater to the exam’s requirements.
