Free F.E./P.E. video exam reviews from Texas A&M University

These reviews are made possible by courtesy of the U.S. Military at Fort Hood, Texas, for whom they were originally prepared, and by the generosity of Dr. Dan Turner, whose Incentive Grant Award was used to purchase everything from the software needed, to extra memory and big old hard drives to process the materials. Server software and computers are supplied by the Civil Engineering Department at Texas A&M University. Thanks guys. The presentations were generated by professors at Texas A&M University and presented to Fort Hood engineering students by live televideo. Presentation notes are included with the video, and can be downloaded and printed in various formats, or you can open a second copy of your browser and view them along side with the taped presentations. Simply display the talking heads on one side of your screen, and the notes on the other. You will find this necessary because in most cases the notes in the streamed video will be too small to read.

Video presentations require you to have a player to view Real media, but if you are smart you won't use Real Media Player. See below. Although you might be able to view these videos over a 56k modem, it is certainly no fun. We recommend that you go to a University computer lab where you have access to broad-band, or find a friend who has a DSL line or a cable modem, and view them in teams. If you go to a University computer lab, you might want to take a set of headphones to plug into the computer. They may not have headphones to loan, and may not want the noise in the lab. The notes usually require Adobe Reader. Please note that there is a button on the Adobe Reader to "rotate" the notes if you need to rotate them 90 degrees on your screen.

The FE and PE tapes were generated in 1998, and someday the information will get out of date. While most of the engineering principles remain the same, code procedures and requirements will change over time. Thus you can be pretty sure that the reviews on statics, strength of materials, and engineering economics will stay current, but less sure about the calculation methods listed for Cb in the steel beam design review. Please be careful. The complete courses are current as of the dates presented to our students.

Finally, PLEASE let us know if they are useful. If 30,000 people view this material and nobody gets a bit of good out of it, then we have wasted the valuable time of the next 30,000 people who could be studying in some more useful way. Also, if you find errors or omissions or other problems in the presentations or in the printed materials please let us know, or it won't ever get corrected
