Hi, I am preparing for the Cambridge Engineering Admissions test. I hope some of you are in the same boat; How are you preparing? Which papers are you using? I'm using the PAT and AS Challenges. Do you know any other useful resources??

Fortunately I'm not doing it.

I'm a parent... of a Cambridge student who got a place before they introduced this test

Have you looked at the specimen papers for the ENGAA? Here's the link for it if you haven't:
http://www.undergraduate.study.cam.a...y-requirements
You need to scroll down a bit.

Also, does anyone know if we're expected to complete the whole of Section 1 in 80 minutes?
