We've Made Some Changes!

New streamline Study Manual includes:

  • We’ve reworded complex topics for easier comprehension and added additional examples and enhanced graphics to support the material.
  • We streamlined the equation formulas and subsequent text describing how to compute complex formulas for ease of calculation.
  • We’ve also added bar to the equations whenever pressure units are used to reflect the relevance to the fluid power industry. 

Preparation is the key to a successful outcome! For those who were unsuccessful the first time around, don’t give up!

The IFPS wants you to succeed. There are several ways to prepare. Visit to access these resources:
