Best Electrical PE Exam Study Materials
In this post I am providing a compilation of the best study materials for the Electrical PE Exam. There are in fact, three exams under this category, the three being Electronics, Computers, and Power. This post covers all three of the subjects.
The Electrical PE Exam is an open-book exam, and as such you are free to bring the materials and references with you. You will also need some references or study materials for your preparation. Below each recommendation you will find a link to the amazon version of the product. Note: I will receive a commission from the links, though any commissions I receive cost you nothing. So I want to thank you in advance helping support the site
In studying for the Electrical PE Exam, there three items of particular importance that you will need to purchase. You will need the most include a base reference manual, a bunch of sample problems, and a sample exam.
The reason I suggest these three items for your review is because you will want to have the core reference to help you work problems and to take to the exam. But working problems will be the core of your review and preparation. Skim over the appropriate section in the manual, and then work the problems for that area. The sample exam is used to give you a test day experience and also find out where you need to spend some time preparing.

There are several review courses out there, but in reality, most of them focus on the Power Engineering exam. If that is the exam you are taking, then you have even more of a selection that I am making note of here. If you are taking one of the other exams, or even if you are taking the power exam, then you may wan to consider this course by Dr Blank:
