Frequently Asked Questions

How likely are you to pass the PE Exam?

Over a thousand engineers have succeeded 
using our online courses.

The web site was very helpful, I studied some things prior to the review but don’t think I even needed to. The review was all I really needed to get me into the correct mindset to solve the problems on the test.
