My coworker and I decided to go for our Professional Engineer certification (mechanical), and we started now studying for next April’s test (missed the October filing deadline). So, since it’s been like 7 years out of school for both of us, we are jumping into the water one toenail at a time. Our strategy is to read three chapters a week (in order from the beginning) and get together one night a week to work out all the sample problems for the preceding three chapters… So far it has worked good for the first week… At this rate we will have finished the book by November, probably January if we count all the off weeks due to vacation/holidays, etc.
But what do you think is a good study strategy? Go in order? out of order? more chapters? more intense? Less intense? We don’t want to pay to go to a class. What was your home-study strategy and practices that worked for you? Thanks!
