CHEMICAL EXAM SPECIFICATIONS

Effective Beginning with the April 2009 Examinations

• • •

The FE examination is an 8-hour supplied-reference examination: 120 questions in the 4-hour morning session and 60 questions in the 4-hour afternoon session.

Examinees work all questions in the morning session and all questions in the afternoon module. The FE examination uses both the International System of Units (SI) and the US Customary System (USCS).

**MORNING Session (120 questions in 12 topic areas)
