Default Using ASM 9th Edition/11th Printing for July Exam?

Hello all,

I was wondering for the Exam in July, if the older edition of the ASM manual, as well as perhaps maybe some of the chapters of the FM ASM manual, would be sufficient enough? I was going to take MFE in March originally and ordered the materials for it, but decided to wait until the July sitting instead.

No one can give you a definitive answer since the exam has never been taken before but I think probably. As long as you cover all of the topics on the July 2017 syllabus and get the new version of ADAPT for practice problems, you should be fine.

That's as definitive an answer as you're going to get. That post tells you what chapters to study and which to ignore and one topic that isn't covered.
