After using this manual, I found the FE to be a piece of cake.
This book is LONG. It has a LOT of problems. However, it WILL prepare you for the FE. There is a new version out, so I'd recommended using that.
I went through every problem in this book over a 3 month period. I read every page and worked every problem, using assistance from the answers when I needed. Sometimes it's not worth the time to spend on a complex problem to figure it out yourself, grab a hint from the back, then do the calculations. The problem in this book are very difficult, it might seem like a disaster when you are studying, but you'll be over prepared on exam day.
After using this manual, I found the FE to be a piece of cake. I passed and finished each section with almost an hour to spare. I skipped difficult problems to revisit, but there were only around 5 in the morning and 10 in the afternoon. Several of my classmates failed the exam, even those who were good students and made good test score.
Also, be sure to familiarize yourself with the provided reference manual, some answers come word for word out of the reference book.
As a Petroleum Engineering graduate, I took the General afternoon exam.

Review Guides for FE Exams
By Adam P.
I used four books and the NCEES formula books when studying for the FE exam, those being
1) FE Revier Manual by Michael R. Lindeburg
2) Fundamentals of Engineering by J., Phd. Dilworth
3) Best Test Preparation for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam by Nesar U. Ahmed
4) Fundamentals of Engineering: FE Exam Preparation by Donald G Newnan
I found the book by Lindeburg to be the most comprehensive. Other books can be used as supplements, but in all honestly you really just need to understand the basics of the subjects (and the main topics in those subjects). Some of the other books get really detailed problems that frankly I never encountered on the FE exam. My advice is to acclimate yourself with the formula book that NCEES provides and solve problems until you feel that you fundamentally are comfortable with the material. The problems you encounter on the FE exam aren't made to trick you, they are there to test your knowledge in a concise manner. Hope this helps!

Great tool to study
By 3gang mommysierge
The FE Review Manual is designed to prepare you to pass the general FE exam even if you have very limited study time. You get an efficient review of all the current exam topics; diagnostic exams so you can see what areas you need to study; more than 1,150 practice problems (with solutions); a realistic simulation of the complete 8-hour exam; and free software to help reinforce what you've learned. Plus, the Review Manual is completely in sync (same terminology, formulas, topic order, etc.) with the NCEES handbook that is used during the exam.
