Best Places to Prepare for the New Jersey PE Exam

The deadline to register for the October New Jersey PE exam is barreling toward us. Hopefully, at this point, you’ve already begun your application and are well on your way to receiving approval to sit for the exam. Now that the hard part is almost out of the way, you should start thinking about what resources you need to help you prepare. Maybe you’ll learn best from an in-person class. No? Then, maybe practice exams are more your style. Regardless of how you want to study for the PE exam, our experts at the New Jersey Society of Professional Engineers compiled a list of some organizations that can help you get started:

School of PE

Offering review courses since 2004, School of PE is well-versed in the world of engineering. You can register for PE exam review courses in civil, environmental, architectural, chemical, control systems, electrical, industrial, mechanical, and petroleum engineering, so there’s a course for everyone. While the courses are typically $1,490, you can save $300 by registering early. Some of the courses are offered online, but others are held at locations throughout New Jersey, including Atlantic City and Newark.

National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES)

NCEES is the expert in all engineering exams, so why not go to them for your review course? The website has information about everything you need to know going into your exam, including registration procedures, design standards, fees, prep, scoring, and pass rates. You can also complete demo questions and purchase practice exam books in your engineering discipline for $39.95, allowing you to prep from the comfort of your home. Learn more about the NCEES review materials here. You can also register to take the October PE exam (if you’re running a little behind on the application part of things) in your specific discipline here.
