Is the Bronze Course right for you?

If you can answer yes to all three of the following questions, the Bronze level course is right for you:

  • Don’t need a structured study plan with access to instructor and live instruction, prefer to do it on your own?

  • Aren’t looking for Video instruction, written problems will do?

  • You were a strong student and feel pretty confident but want a comprehensive review?

Frequently Asked Questions

How likely are you to pass the PE Civil exam?

Over a thousand engineers have succeeded 
using our online courses.

It was very helpful. I used the “Cheat Sheet” often during the test for the common equations. It also helped me to decide to not take the Transportation portion of the test! I was trying to decide between Water Resources and Transportation and did not realize how little of the Transportation I knew until I went through the course. I learn best when I can hear and watch an instructor, so being able to review with someone walking me through it was invaluable to me. I also liked that I could stop and start the lessons whenever I wanted. That let me get a few problems in during lunch or right after work without messing up my family schedule too much.
