To become an engineer, don't you have to write some exams for the local engineering body?

I know when I graduate I still have to write some law & ethics exams before I get a P.Eng designation.

no we do not have to write any laws or anything like that. im not sure how your profesional engineering licenceing goes in canada, but here you are not required to even take it. if you do its a 2 part test, one tests on all forms of engineering that is about 6 hours long. if you pass that then you need to work under a profesional engineer for 3-6 years and then you can take the second part which is specific to your field. if you pass this then you are a professional engineer. im not sure if i plan on taking the professional engineering exam or not, right now i plan on just getting my BS in mechanical engineering and MBA in buisness.

Exclamation If you really want to study...

*warning* not for people with heart conditions. Use this method ONLY if you are in a tight spot. I was doing horrible in an accounting course a while back and I needed like 70% on the exam just to pass the class. What you do is make a BIG cup of coffee, take 2 aspirins, and get yourself some EPHEDRINE. Its tough to get in Canda, you have to find a little nutritional store and ask them (usually sold under the table) or get pre-made mixes such as Hydroxycut (get AMERICAN version only), Xenadrine, etc. etc. For all you flamers out there dont knock it till you tried it.

Question 2 days?!?

Wow 2 days?!? When i did it (the big coffee, 2 aspirins, & 2 Eph's.), I did it right when i woke up w/ my morning coffee... I studied straight (NO JOKE!!!) for 8 hours.. just reading, writing, and working out problems. I went to sleep at my regular time. I did the same thing for the following 2 days and I was fine and got near perfect on the final as far as Hydroxycut goes, I can PERSONALLY say from EXPERIENCE that it is not that harsh at all. The only things that can keep you up for days is cocaine*drunk* . That wont help your studing at all.

nobody should knock this suggestion at all, because it does have some truth behind the formula. Stimulants like the caffeine and the amphetamines will help you focus much more on whatever you're doing than without. This is especially for people with mild to severe attention deficit disorder (ADD). The prescription drug would be Ritalin, which in a sense does almost the same thing.
I'm not too sure about the aspirin part of that because aspirin can actually cause you to become drowsy. If you're going to do the above though, take only 2 cups (500ml) or coffee or jolt, and then 2 ephedrine. Any more ephedrin will just make you sketch out for hours on end instead of helping you focus (think of being on speed, that's what it'll be like with 3+).

The only way I was able to bring myself up from 55% average in school to an 89% average in most of my classes was to actually do my homework AT school. In my last 2 years I spent my entire lunch periods and spares doing all my homework before I went home that day. Sometimes I would even stay after school in the library to finish it up because as soon as I got home I would get distracted by anything and everything.

Also the benefit to doing your homework at school is that if you get stuck you can always go seek extra help immediately instead of waiting until the next day...

try it out...friends will make fun of you, but in the end they'll all forget about it.
