Hello Everyone,

First time participating in this forum. Currently working on obtaining my EIT certification in Georgia!

Although I have a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering Technology (Earned in 1999) and a Master of Civil Engineering degree (Earned in 2019), I am trying to pass my EIT exam scheduled for July 9, 2022 on my 7th attempt taking the Electrical and Computer option. I took my 1st 3 EIT in Civil due to working at a Wastewater Authority for 13.5 years as a GIS Specialist / Fats, Oils and Grease Program Coordinator based on my work experience. I took my last 3 EIT exams in Electrical/Computer based on my bachelor's degree and current work as an Engineering Systems Specialist at my local Electrical Membership Cooperation (EMC) over the past 2 years.

The challenge in me not passing this exam in my past, I think, has been an issue of time management, not fully understanding the concepts, and also being out of school based on my bachelor's degree to recall this knowledge. I am currently taking an on-demand class working on a lot of problems, taking practice quizzes and exams, and also timing myself with a timer to see how long it takes for me to solve each practice problem.

I am committed to earning my EIT certification and PE license eventually despite overcoming these aforementioned obstacles as a working professional, husband and father.

Please provide any advice to help me get over this EIT passing exam hump.

Thank you in advance for your time and input!
