The menu above allows you to move directly to any of the topics reviewed. For each topic, the materials are organized into four different parts:

Case Intro: To help introduce and understand the basic principles, a case study is presented.

Theory: This part will review the basic principles and equations that you should know to answer the exam questions. It does not give detailed derivations of the theory.

Case Solution: The case study is solved in detail in this section. Graphics, narrations, animations, and equations are used to help you understand how the problem was solved.

Simulation: You can adjust several parameters of a given problem and learn how they affect the results.
