Please recommend a Civil/Construction review course in APR 2014 Posted May 28, 2014 · Report reply I took the Civil/Construction this April and I passed (whew!). I took the School of PE review course. Overall I thought the course was great. However, I have to disagree with almost everyone here about the quality of the Construction portion instructor. The material he covered was fine, but his actual teaching abilities were pretty bad compared to the other instructors. I actually wrote SoPE and gave some timeframes of the videos that display how poorly he taught. Maybe it's an unfair criticism, but the other instructors were leagues above him in terms of relating to the student / answering questions / understanding what students were asking. Juxtaposing him with the Geo instructor for example, and you'll see a WORLD of difference. He seemed to be uncomfortable deviating from his scripted teaching methods and I found that he had trouble keeping up with student's questions. Quite frequently he didn't even understand what they were asking. Multiple times I would almost yell into the monitor "She's not asking that, she's asking about THIS!". That being said, I can't imagine a better review course out there. I did the "Mansour" book course, which was a bit more helpful on the conceptual stuff. I thought Goswami All-in-One was a waste of time, although his example tests were GREAT! I took all the sample exams I could find, and when the test came it was harder than expected. But ... to each his own, people I know who have passed have only used the Goswami book and CERM, no review course. Just my two cents! Andrew I agree with this but he was easy to understand. I got a little annoyed with the "There you have it!" commentary but still thought it was a very thorough (actually too thorough review). My construction review material was thicker than any other course.
