I took and

passed the EI exam a couple of years ago and I felt it would be wrong if I did not provide my fellow engineers with tips that I learned along the way.

First of all, the test is not hard especially if you are

freshly out of engineering school. From my own experience, the key to passing the test is making sure that you,

- fully understand the basic sciences, calculus and other classes you took in the first two years of college. Realize the test is basically to prove that you have an engineering degree and you are able to solve basic engineering questions. Also, the test is a precursor to the more detailed PE exam so it isn't too complicated,
- know before-hand if you will be taking the subject-specific of the general test for the afternoon portion of the test and prepare accordingly,
- read the formula book and understand where all the formulas are located.
**THIS IS THE KEY TO PASSING THE TEST**.

The EI test easily passable as long as you study and obey the rules above.
