What do our students say about our prep courses?

Check out some testimonials from past students:

  • "I have been out of school for 12 years, and this was my 3rd attempt at this exam, so going into this process my confidence level was really low. The instructor's course material was so aligned with the exam specifications that I knew I passed the exam after completing just the morning section. I ultimately finished with an hour to spare."

  • "I passed the FE - Electrical and Computer exam at the first attempt and I think the notes, problems and solutions provided by 'School of PE' helped me a lot in this process. I got proper guidance as the notes helped me to brush my basics and to understand different approaches to solve problems."
