The Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (FE/EIT). I am taking this test in April. I have started studying for it and after one of my good friends had to take it twice leads me to believe that it is no joke. :P I've got plenty of materials from plenty of people. Now all I need to do is assert myself and take the plunge and do insane amounts of boring studies.
Incentive to Overcome the Problem:
As most of you know I'm a bit of a PC enthusiast. I built myself a PC a couple years ago and haven't really done much in the way of upgrading aside from a BluRay player and a pair of new graphics cards recently which are very nice by the way :) ... But like all men (or at least most of them) a good amount of power is never enough. *Home Improvement grunt inserted here* I have seen bottlenecking on the rest of the PCs hardware and that's just not acceptable. So I approached the controller of all monies Mikles, and gave a proposition. So I says to her, "If I pass the FE on the first time, can I rebuild my computer?" After getting some of the details worked out, she reluctantly accepted my proposal of the rebuild. I'm not sure if she understands the ramifications of the awesomeness that this new PC will harness, but it will command a majority of my attention soon following the hopeful passing of the FE. :)
