I wrapped up my BSEE three years ago and have been working as a EE since then. However, the vast majority of my work has been geared toward test/manufacturing/embedded. As a result, I fear that a substantial amount of my fundamental EE knowledge has atrophied and I'm just plain rusty.

This isn't really an issue for my current position, but I'm starting to look ahead toward my next career move and figure that I'd be grilled in an interview setting. Other than re-reading every book I have and doing every problem set, what would you recommend I do to get back up to speed? Are there any particular books that are recommended for refreshing? Another possibility would be to view some online course material, such as MIT's video collection (

Anyway, any tips would be greatly appreciated - thanks!

Going back over your notes is the best way to refresh your knowledge. I don't think you have to do a lot of problems, but make sure you can do the derivations in your notes.
