  1. Hey Matt, I hope all is well and that you are having a great start to the year. Thanks for adding your experience, I appreciate you! Justin
  2. Hi Ptatohed, Haha, you and I both are relics, taking that old Pen and Paper exam that guaranteed nothing but a headache when we walked out! Thank you so much for your feedback and doing it in a constructive way that we can take action against, that's definitely what we are looking for. All your points are articulated well and there is no offense taken at all. I certainly understand where it can come across that the pricing is hidden, but that is definitely not the intent. We are using a secure processor form there which provides a drop down menu for each of the membership options. I mentioned it in a separate post, but I believe an intermediary page showing a comparison table of some sort would be a good addition here. We don't want to come across as pushy salesman'y, that's no good. Every time a new student signs up I pick up the phone to welcome them and open myself up to them if they had any questions about anything. The call is not to sell and their is no time limit, I just want to get to know my students and see how we can best help them pass this exam. I can't even put a number to how many hours I've spent on the phone with students pursuing this exam, but that's a commitment we made from the start, to be in and stay in the trenches with those battling forward towards passing the FE. Some students stick, some don't after the trial, and that's ok...as long as they are leaving knowing more then they did 7 days prior, then I feel we did something positive for them and our industry...and that's always been the focus, do good. We don't want to rush anyone and even recommend other programs after talking if we know of a better fit that's out there. But like you mention, intent doesn't always matter when the presentation up front doesn't resonate. Thanks again my friend, I appreciate it! Justin
  3. I first want to say thank you to everyone who has participated in this thread. As the founder of Prepineer, it does mean a lot to hear this feedback, whether good or bad, it helps us do exactly what we are trying to do...and that's create a program that is practical, impactful, and economical. I am not here to go on some PR campaign, push/oversell a program, because that's not how I roll, I just want to learn more about each individual's experience with our program. The day we stop learning, is the day we stop growing...so with that said, I would love to get on a quick 10-15 minute call with you Limamike and pigking8190. I won't take much of your time or ask you anything to put you on the spot, I want to just listen. If you are OK with that, just let me know and I will make it happen. Thanks again! Justin sshill, congratulations on your success my friend and thank you for the kind words. We have probably already spoken since you have passed, but if not, let's connect as well and talk about your experience and see what we did good what we could do better, and what we should be doing for our students!
  4. Hi Tia, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving Holiday! Prepineer is the prep program that was born out of my work at EngineerInTrainingExam.com. The goal of EITE is to help a student see that they actually CAN pass the FE Exam no matter how daunting it may seem, no matter what life stage they are in, and no matter how little time they think they have. At EITE we open up, embrace vulnerability, and expose limiting beliefs for what they are...obstacles in our way to fulfilling our potential as individuals. You can say that it is the soft side of engineering prep, where we provide inspiration, motivation, and practical actions to lean in to the resistance that keeps us planted in the same place for years. Prepineer on the other hand is the boots on the ground, "let's get it on", FE Exam program that our students hop in to when they are ready to take real action. It is an organized curriculum of content to help you fully get prepared for the FE Exam. Along with the content, we have practice problems, a mentorship program, a private Q&A community, weekly strategic workshops, and other resources that we put in to place around each student to ensure that they continue to make progress in the most efficient way. I totally agree with you, I need to get a way easier way for people to see pricing, that's on me. Currently we have 3 membership options, that can be seen in the drop down menu at http://www.prepineer.com/membership-options they are month to month ($249/mth), 3 month ($597), and 6 month ($997). Whatever plan you choose you get the same exact access across the board, you get unlimited access to the content, weekly workshops, office hours, etc...the pricing tiers are just more for the convenience of the student so that they don't feel they have to be stuck in a program for a period longer than they need. I hope that helps a little, have a great rest of your day! Justin
  5. Hi Tia, I certainly understand where you are coming from when you say courses can be expensive, believe me I was in your shoes not too long ago. My name is Justin and I am the creator behind both EngineerInTrainingExam.com and Prepineer.com. I am not going to come on here and start giving comparisons to other programs, as that is a very subjective positioning and every single student, including yourself, is unique in what may or may not be a good fit or you. What I can give you is a little insight on is how we go about running our program at Prepineer.com (thanks for posting the link above ptatohed, I hope this is the type of links you were wanting to see in the posts). Since the beginning, we have always centered our efforts around the student. What I mean by this is that every single student that has come through Prepineer has received personal attention to ensure that what they are studying and how they are going about studying it fits their personal needs and schedule. We understand, like I mentioned, that every single one of our students is unique, and that funneling them through a "one size fits all" study plan just doesn't make much sense. Say for instance that you have one student who may be straight out of school, no kids, full time job, but also a bunch of free time after they are out of work. Then you have another student who may be 10 years out of school, 2 kids, full time job, soccer practices, kids homework, etc. Now, looking at these two scenarios, it's obvious that we have very different situations for these two students, yet, the common approach to preparing for the FE Exam generally doesn't change, you get in to a program, or pick up a book, and it's the same approach either way. On paper, it's obvious, in practice, it's treated as the same type of student. In Prepineer, the very first thing we do for each one of our students is set them up with a Personal Mentor. This is someone who has been through the program and the rigors of preparing for the FE Exam. Your mentor will create a fully customized study plan in line with your current life situation, a study plan that makes sense for you, and ensures that you will get the most out of the time you have in preparing for the exam. From there, this mentor is someone who will be in the trenches with you as you make your way through the program and the material, ensuring that you are making progress and pushing forward towards your exam. This is only the tip of the iceberg, and because this post is getting quite lengthy, I wanted to point you over to our testimonial page, just to read some of the experiences of past students, and we have been Blessed to work with some amazing students. So hop over and check them out at: http://www.prepineer.com/testimonials/ I hope that helps a little Tia, the major points I was trying to make is just really have a grip on what your journey will look like and surround yourself with people who really care about your end goal and want to see you succeed. Whether it is with Prepineer or not, have these two components in place, although seemingly minor, can make a dramatic difference in your progress and exam performance. So with that, I hope you have a great day! Justin
  6. Matt, Thank you for your kind words and sharing your experience. kl.15, if you need anything, don't hesitate to reach out, I would love to help you in any way that I am able. Justin
  7. Hey zbest, You got some good advice and a suggested resource in the Texam A&M site. I would second everything that was already said in how I would approach studying for any section of the exam. It's important to note that in order to maximize your retention of the information, that you continually switch up the presentation of the information. Doing so will allow your mind to constantly stay engaged with the concepts, making your sfudy sessions much more productive and efficient. So you asked whether you should use text, videos, etc...and I would say all of the above, plus the practice problems, and reference manual as suggested. When you find your mind wandering, switch it up and keep it fresh. Hope that helps, Good Luck!
  8. Congratulations MTKJeep, a great story of resolve and message that we all need to hear! Good Luck!
  9. Hey domo, I hope all is well. The short answer is No. Delaware requires their applicants to submit 4 years of verifiable experience to be eligible for the exam. Of this 4 years, an applicant can claim 1 or 2 years of equivalent experience if they hold a Masters or PhD in engineering. However, if they hold a job during this post graduate work, they can either claim the Degree as experience or the work as experience, not both. Here is a link explaining this is, hope it helps, take care! />https://www.dape.org/static/howtoapppe.asp
  10. Hey Solomon, Thank you for the kind words, I appreciate it. Have a great day!
  11. Hey tpl, This is a question that you can get clarified by your State board and would only get a speculative answer from us here on the board. Go to the link below, find your State, and contact the individual directly and run them through your situation, I hope that helps... />http://www.ncees.org/Licensing_boards.php
  12. Haha, nice, ya, little sketchy, it's like a run on sentence or something... I tried to give you a "Like this", but they say that I'm past my quota for the day And regarding your seismic results, I hope to hear some good news soon! Take care...
