Exam writing tips

Here are some useful exam writing tips

Prepare well

Make use of previous examination question papers. That is why we thought it good to offer past exam papers on our website, in easy pdf downloadable and printable form.

Go to bed early the previous night

Try to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep the previous night, so that you body will be well rested the next day. Cramming into the early morning hours is definitely not recommended.

Before you go to bed, make sure that pens, pencils, your calculator, your exam permit and identity document are all at hand. Put a reminder on your cell phone for this, or ask someone in your household to remind you.

Take an extra pen. You do not want to sit in the examination venue with a dry pen, and no replacement. Remember, strictly according to regulations, borrowing is not allowed during the examintaion !!!
Take a pencil sharpener and ensure that your pencil is sharp before you go into the venue. If you use a clutch pencil with loose leads, ensure that you have extra leads.
Make sure that you have an eraser for graphs and sketches.
Do not forget you ruler and set squares.
For engineering drawing, a scale rule can be handy.

Get up early enough on the morning of the exam
Bear in mind whether you will travel to the venue by public transport, your own transport, or with a fellow student (he or she must be reliable and responsible).
The last thing that you want to worry about is getting to the venue on time. And you do not want to disadvantage yourself, by being late. Remember, there is no extra time for late coming.

Make sure that you know where the venue is.
You do not want to waste time wandering around a large complex in search of your venue.

Do not talk to frantic, panicking fellow students who are often confused and argumentative  Stay on your own, until it is time to enter the examination venue.

Read the question paper through, before commencing.
Start with the question you know best, first. That will boost your confidence for the rest of that specific exam paper.

Keep well

Strength of Materials and Structures N5 Question papers in eBook format

I have received nothing but positive feedback from students who have purchased and used the ebook. 

There are currently 2 versions:
Version 1 is free - it contains November 2010 - questions, answers and solutions. Then it also contains April 2011 and April 2012, questions and answers only.
Version 1 is a paid version, which contains April 2011, August 2011, November 2011, as well as April 2012 question papers - the questions with answers as well as the solutions separate, with detailed notes for  tricky questions. Here I tapped on over 20 years of lecturing experience in this subject. My approach is a How and  Why one.

Bonus: If you buy version 2, which you can download on our website, I will also throw in August 2012 in a special edition eBook. Try version 2 for free. You have nothing to lose, but everything to gain. 

Good luck with your studies
