Can someone also explain what does Mansour cover in his DVDS? is it just his books? or he goes in theory and has other sample problems in the dvds. and if you recommend purchasing them..

If you've never heard of the terms above, I strongly recommend going online and learning as much as possible about what surveyors do. The exam is about solving problems quickly (3 minutes per problem) which implies you would already have a handle on the purposes of surveying.

sample survey exams, by boniface
The thing with survey is to try and really understand the concepts and not just mindlessly crank out problems in hopes that on the test you can see something similar so you could plug and chug. There are usually multiple ways of getting the right answer so if you focus on really understanding what they are asking, you'll do fine.
A few of my friends would just do problem after problem and then bring them all to the test to refer to - unfortunately you don't have time to do that.
Oh, and speed. What I suggest is "saving" the sample exams by boniface til the end and do a timed test to see how you do.
Then do everything over again - the second time will really reinforce your grasp on the subject.
Best of luck.
