Most chapters of the Foundations of Engineering textbook have practice exam questions. Students can find these at the following http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/0072480823/student_view0/index.html Please pass this site onto your students so they can study for the exam. TRUE/FALSE QUESTIONS 1. When presentating engineering solutions, one should list assumptions made in developing the solution. o true o false 2. You should present your solution in stepwise logical fashion in order for your results be reproducible by another engineer. o true o false 3. The last step of a problem solution is to verify the results. o true o false 4. The reason you should state the answer verbally at the end with correct dimensions is that you wish to make it easier for the reader (possibly another engineer, a manager, a client, etc.) to see the final result at once, even if he/she does not want to go into details and does not want to know your notation. The answer should be unambiguous even for a non-expert. o true o false 5. The last step in solving engineering problems is solving for your unknown quantity. (finding what it is you are looking for) o true o false 6. Two engineers working on the same problem should always develop the same solution even if they use different assumptions. o true o false 7. Problem solving generally involves algorithms and heuristics. o true o false 8. Before reporting your solution to an engineering problem, you should verify your results.

o true o false 9. The first step in the design process is to find the “best” solution. o true o false 10. Design is an iterative process that generally involves analysis. o true o false 11. Setting criteria and constraints is a step in the engineering design process o true o false 12. As an engineer you will generally deal only with the technical issues associated with a problem, therefore it is a waste to time for engineers to develop good written and verbal communication skills. o true o false 13. In a coherent system of units, the volume and surface area of a cube of arbitrary dimension are equivalent. o true o false 14. In an absolute system of units, mass, force and time are defined to be the fundamental dimensions, and acceleration is a derived dimension that can be computed using Newton's Second Law.
