About the Handbook
The FE is a closed-book exam, and the FE Supplied-Reference Handbook is the only reference material you
may use. Reviewing it before exam day will help you become familiar with the charts, formulas, tables, and
other reference information provided. You won’t be allowed to bring your personal copy of the Handbook into
the exam room, but you will be provided with a new one at your seat on exam day.
The Handbook does not contain all the information required to answer every question on the exam. Some
