THE QUESTIONS set in engineering examinations are in one respect surprisingly uniform in nearly all universities, and colleges, and professional institutions: each question describes a more or less simple engineering problem in as few words as possible and adds the relevant dimensions or measurements necessary for the solution which is carefully defined as the desired end. Great care is taken by examiners to ensure that the description is terse, has adequate but not redundant information, and this is occasionally assisted by a small, simplified diagram reproduced in the text of the exam paper. These diagrams are often so highly simplified that the parts are indistinguishable as real engineering components.
