    MWD is not a problem but forget the books for now. Get in touch with the MWD companies and apply NOW!
    They will teach you and give you a reading list.

    DE is a different bug. In today’s world it is just about required to have a DE degree to get hired as a DE.

    I think the prospects at Weatherford are outstanding.
