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!

Sincerely,

Xavier Davis
