Project Beta: ‘Outsmart the Board Exam’ Relay

I’ve read Engr Rucel Virata’s “Outsmart the Board Exam” book when he gave me a copy sometime in 2020. Eventually, after I was done reading it, I raffled it off to a follower so it be useful to someone who could use it the most.

The book is about the title itself: how to outsmart the board exam. It shares tips, tricks, and techniques needed to pass the licensure exam. Although it was written by an engineer, the book contains principles that not only board exam takers could benefit from but also students and even professionals like me.

Later, I decided to buy one more copy to be used in a book relay. When the author learned about this, he donated three more books so more aspiring engineers could benefit from the book.

I called it as Project Beta.

Essentially, Project Beta is a pass-the-book program intended for those who are preparing for their immediate licensure exams, particularly those who have engineering degrees. I have 4 copies of the said book and these copies are passed on within the pool of my chosen giveaway winners, around 20 of them, after entering an essay-writing contest.

At a time, there will be four engineer aspirants who will be able to read and claim ownership of Outsmart. The target is to finish the book within two to four weeks per owner. Once done, the book will be forwarded to another person in the pool, which shipment/transfer fee will be covered in part or whole by Engineer Dee.

As of writing, it is on its last cycle.

It is with Engr Virata’s permission and support to share his book to many, at least without violating the copyright law. He said through chat, verbatim, “Ideas are powerful. Great ideas can change lives,” giving me a go signal to proceed with this project.

Sharing the same belief – that ideas are powerful and life-changing – and with whatever little I earn from my full-time job, I have committed to this project until everyone in the pool will become engineers. Probably I will extend this project when I have the capacity and once I have the books back.

With this, I am asking everyone’s support – if you get insurance from me, my pledge is to give a portion of my commissions to this cause. I have spent more than P 1,000 in total in this first edition, and if I plan to take it to the second edition I will need more money for this small project.

Donations are also welcome as well as sponsorships for this project. Just send me an e-mail for further details via Thanks in advance!

    Good day sir. I Have heard that this book is one of a kind. I badly needed a mentor in studying engineering and the ideas and principles might be a great help for me. Honestly I wanted to buy a copy but I’m not that fortunate enough to afford some.Please help me read your book. Thank you for this oppurtunity .Godbless you and keep on inspiring others

I will be greatful if I will be chosen na mabigyan ng book na too since I am rooting for this however due to financial constraints I wasn’t able to read it. Thank you, continue inspiring!
