Self Study

Self Study requires that you study everything. This is an ambitious and time-consuming alternative. It is not necessary to study everything but only a fraction of the subject. How do you know which fraction to study? The most common complaint is that there is so much to study. How much time are you willing to spend bouncing from one topic to another? From one question to another? What is the value of your time? Estimate the value of your time per hour, multiply by the number of hours you spend, and you will see why this is not cost-effective.

Scheduled Classes

Scheduled classes can be very helpful. They meet regularly and follow a planned schedule to cover several topics in a certain period. These usually involve many instructors.

There is little or no flexibility. You have to sit through material you already know, and you have to speed through topics you wish you can spend more time on. When the coverage is hurried, many topics are skipped and you are required to spend a lot of time understanding your notes and studying more.

If you are busy at work or at home, and if you are not current with the coverage, the class becomes a waste of your time and your money. What happens if you miss a class? Can you make it up?

The time you spend commuting and the inconvenience of scheduled meetings and the cost of gas and parking, often make this an unpopular method. What is the value of your time?

Modern Home-Study Videos

For the time that they have been available, everyone strongly agrees that the most time-efficient, cost-effective, and thorough way to prepare for the exam is through the use of Modern Home-Study Video/DVD Courses with one-on-one personal access to the instructor.

To prepare you to pass both the FE/EIT and the PE exams, Engineering Update Institute offers a variety of home-study Video/DVD courses allowing the student to choose the topics of interest.
