I was deployed way back when. So when it came time to ramp up for he EIT and later the PE, I took a focused prep course when ended about 2 weeks prior to the exam. Many colleges offer them. They use a vast array of sample question off previous years. It gets you into the rhythm of doing the problem solving. I recall the EIT back then was multiple guess but defer to the younger ones for the current testing. BTW I had to take the Survey exam in addition to Civil in California. Turned out to be the last cycle it was required. Legal/Ethics, Seismic, Survey, and National discipline. Then it was an all or nothing result. Exhausted.
I recommend finding an old book for questions rather than the latest study guides, but I notice the Captain Ball already mentioned that fact. Also, join IEEE or AiCHE, there's a lot of good problem solving from their magazines. I am a warranty engineer it has opened the door to testing and problem solving that working on the design side alone bored me after a while.
I have had a lot of exams in my life and I have always liked to study. I want to go deeper into the topic and talk in more detail about the diversity of US universities and how to preserve it. I think it will be interesting for you to read the article https://jt.org/diversity-in-us-universities-how-to-maintain-it/ because it discusses that education itself is the main tool in dealing with this situation: promoting diversity and raising awareness about it.
