Pass the EIT Exam with random answers. Statistical proof !
So you want to pass the EIT Exam. Well, you can either study and study and drill and drill and you'll learn a lot and then, maybe, you pass the exam. Or you can take more of a strategic approach and pass with higher probability without the excessive drilling. How is that possible? Well, it's all in numbers. And numbers do not lie.
Let's see. The section you have to learn well is Math. Yep, we are back to numbers. You have to understand the numbers if you are to trust them.
EIT Exam has two sessions, morning and afternoon. Morning session has 120 questions, and the afternoon one has 60 questions, and each lasts 4 hours. Morning session correct answer will score you one point and afternoon session correct answer will score you 2 points, for a total theoretical maximum of 240 points. Incorrect answer does not score you a negative point, so you are not penalized for guessing wrong. Still with us? If you need better and more detailed description please refer to the "EIT Exam Guide".
How many points do you need to pass the Exam? Well, that varies from year to year, but on average it is 50% or 120 points. (Why 50%? Please refer to "EIT Exam guide")
So how do you score 50% and pass the exam by drilling Math only?
Well, follow us. In the morning session, Math, Probability and Statistics cover 22% of the morning materials, with a maximum theoretical score of (22% of 120) 26 points. Let's say you are not so good in Math, but you only score 20 points. So here are your first 20 points. Now let's say that you know absolutely nothing about any other subject and you have no clue about the answers. Well, since you are not penalized for answering wrong, just answer randomly. (see EIT Exam guide for a true random answer technique) You have 94 points left to gain in the morning session. Each question has 4 answers, so you have 25% chance of answering it right. As such, you will score on average (94 points x 25%) 23 points. So add 23 points for a total of 43 points.
Let's move on the afternoon session. Math, probability and statistics are 19% of the afternoon generic session. Using the same analogy as above, you can score up to 22 points. Let's say you score 18, so add another 18 points, for a total of 61 points. The remaining 102 points you will score randomly only 25%, which is additional 25 points, for a grand total of 86 points.
Well, 86 points is not enough to pass, but wait, we are not done yet. The catch is in the random answers. We assume that there are 4 answers to pick from, but that is rarely true because some can often be eliminated by reason. How? Well, if two trains are heading against each other with 50 km/h speeds, then they cannot crash in -5.23 minutes, can they? If you could only eliminate 1 answer for 50% of randomly answered questions, your grand total of 86 points would be increased by additional 9 points.
Well, that's still 95 points which is not enough to pass and that assumes we eliminate 1 answer for a staggering 50% of questions. Still with me? (If not, get the EIT Exam guide)
Here is the last trick. We assume that you are pretty good in math, right? You should be! Almost all engineering disciplines use math heavily. Not knowing math will handicap you in all sections. Say you are taking the exam and you get this question:
Electrical current flowing through a capacitor follows this function: I = 5 * t*t (t is time in seconds). What will be the charge in the capacitor in 5 seconds?
What? Electrical what? Say, you don't have a clue. I didn't. However, you recognize the type of the problem, look it up in the engineering handbook (which you can have on the exam) and find out that the charge Q = integral of I over t (from t0 to t1). This problem is nothing else but a very simple integral problem that can be solved in 20 seconds. When you do, you are 100% sure of the answer and not 25 or 33 percent. Trust me, there are a lot of problems like this.
But wait a minute, I mentioned "you recognize the type of the problem". How are you supposed to recognize this type of problem? Well, this is where the EIT Exam DVD Video reviews come handy. You spend about 2-4 hours per topic, and there you will encounter most of the problems on the exam as well as finding the solutions in the handbook. Then it is a math problem and not electrical engineering, statics, dynamics or whatever else problem. A lot of problems on the EIT Exam can be simply plugged into an equation from the handbook. The trick is to recognize them. Watch the videos! You will not regret.
Doing this can easilly score you additional 30-50 points, which will put you well above the passing threshold. On top of this, add a fact that you will most likely answer ethics questions right (answers are in the handbook), and that you probably are studying engineering and thus will be strong in one, two, or even three other topics, you will be comfortably above the passing threshold. I took the exam 7 years after graduation, and passed comfortably on the first try.
Remember, the bottom line is whether you pass or not. It's more about strategy than quantity of engineering knowledge.
