Has anyone every taken the on-demand EET classes?  I've taken the SoPE class and I know taking the live web class will be difficult to carve out weekends again (2 young kids) so I thinking the on-demand will allow me to do classes on my own time through the week and weekends.  I looking at the geotech depth.  I was hoping by taking the EET classes that I can get a different mix of problems to solve and study from, not sure what else I can do to pass this test.  I have the classic case of anxiety ever time I sit down to take this test, which causes me to do stupid errors.  I'm not sure if another class will help me or if I just need more problems to work so I can gain my confidence when I walk in there.

Did you do simulate exams during your studying? I recommend doing no less than two full simulated exams prior to the exam-day.

I did, and I scored decently on them.  I'm now to the point where the problems I have I've seen them before and I'm afraid that if I try to use them again as a simulated exam I will remember what the answers are without really having to go thru the problem, if you understand what I am saying.  I felt great after leaving the test and was a little shocked to see how poorly I did in the morning session.  I've never been a great test taker and I think I psych myself out when I go in.  I'm figuring I need to change something on my studying strategy and do more problems and more simulated tests.  I did 2 simulated tests before 2 weeks out from the exam.

What was your strategy during the exam? Was time an issue for you?

I read thru all the question and labeled them from A-D (easiest to hardest), D being the most work and I did all the conceptual questions first.  I finished the morning and afternoon session about 10-15 min early.

Edifatta, I am not a good test taker as well. Did you register for EET? I just did on Monday and waiting for my binder to arrive.

Sheetu, I did.  I got my binders in the mail over the weekend.  I registered for the On-Demand classes and plan on sitting down tonight to watch a portion of my first class.  Are you doing the Live classes?

Hi! Yes, I got my binder in the mail - Monday. Two-day USPS pfff. I am doing the webinar for the breadth (I am in Houston - had the first class this past Saturday). I am taking the geotech pm and they are offering it as on demand only. I am planning to continue with the breadth for now and not sure when I can squeeze in the geotechnical portion. Gosh there is so much to do!

I did a couple hours over the weekend for the breadth section, I'm not able to do the live webinar with my kids being around and my wife works every Saturday so it would be hard to pay attention.  I am doing the geotechnical depth as well.  I'm not sure what you have for problems to work but if you would like to exchange problems, thoughts, or shoot question back and forth I'm all for it.  I just want to pass this test and be done with it, I feel like it has consumed enough of my life already..  

Here is my email address to exchange files unless you want to exchange on here, doesn't matter to me.  eadifatta@icloud.com (I'm in Pittsburgh)
