I am unsure of this, but if you can, it’s certainly not legal, and I highly recommend against seeking and/or using such material. This is a very serious offense towards the NCEES and further compromises the integrity of the exam. The NCEES Engineer in Training exam is copyright in full and no examinee is allowed to reproduce or disclose any information relating to a specific exam. This includes but is not limited to discussing any exam questions, answers, solutions, or other problems on the Internet, forums, or any other related means.
As taken from the NCEES website, the passing rates from the April 2010 Engineer in Training exam were as follows:
|Exam Module||First-time takers||Repeat takers|
Other Disciplines module breakdown by examinee degree
|Examinees’ college/university degree discipline||First-time takers||Repeat takers|
|Geological and Geophysical||56%||21%|
|Mining and Mineral||67%||48%|
|Naval Architecture and Marine||84%||38%|
Unfortunately, you do not receive a refund if you fail the Engineer in Training exam. If prior to the exam, you know you will be missing it, and have a valid reason for doing so, you can contact your State board and they may grant you a postponement. Each board is unique in the way they handle these instances, so it’s important you contact your Board immediately upon something coming up. Visit the State by State requirements page for more information.
The cost of the Engineer in Training Exam varies from state to state. Some states don’t require you to pay any application fee for the exam, while others could charge up to $200 to sit for the exam. It’s best that you refer to your specific State’s requirements on the dedicate State Requirements page.
The most commonly used formulas for all the topics covered in the Engineer in Training exam can be found in the NCEES supplied Reference Handbook. Refer to this link regarding the review of the Reference Manual prior to the exam. You can download the NCEES Reference Handbook HERE…

Absolutely, and it is extremely important that you do so. In college, we were able to produce a 1 page cheat sheet of common formulas and other related information to use during our exams. These cheat sheets were produced by us, thus, we were familiar with the format and the areas of needed information while taking the test. At times it made it easier, but other times it may have made things more difficult because we either jammed too much information on to the sheet, or did not organize it good enough. The Reference Handbook is no different then these cheat sheets. It is quite a bit larger, and for that reason, it is a must that it is purchased prior to ensure you are familiar from front to back where the certain information is stashed.
Head over to the NCEES website to get the reference handbook or visit the resources page for the direct link.
The EIT exam uses both SI (International System) and USCS (US Customary System) units for the problems. It is important to be competent both in recognizing and converting in to and out of each of the unit structures.
