Exam prep: Engineers in Gear (EIG)

EIG asynchronous study packets are designed to help you prepare for the types of questions you could be asked on upcoming exams.They consist of some combination of mock exam questions and their solutions along with videos of instructors walking you through solutions to seminal problems. The materials are designed to help you focus on problem-solving strategies, practice exam-like questions, and review concepts before exams.
