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.

I recently found out that I passed my P.E. Exam on the second try!  The first time around, I studied without a review course and I failed the exam which I took very hard.  I was reluctant on taking an online course due to the extra cost and time commitments but upon finishing the April 2011 Exam, I realized that I was so happy I took your course.   The P.E. Review course kept me on track with my studies, helped me understand problems that I did not previously understand, was very convenient and allowed me to talk out problems with other members and yourself.  Most importantly, I walked into this examination with a lot of confidence, which really made a huge difference.   I will be recommending this course to as many future examinees as i know.
Once again, thank you for preparing and leading such a great course!
