  1. School of PE is looking for PE professionals to write sample engineering questions to enhance our review courses. Not interested in writing questions we need people to review the written questions as well. If you are in interested in exploring this offer please click on the below link to answer a few questions letting us know your preferences. https://conta.cc/2XEDfE3
  2. Whether you received the exam results desired or not we would like to take the time to say congratulations to all those who took on the challenge of taking these exams. The amount of time, dedication and hard work that is put into PE exam preparation is astonishing. Being an educator directly related to exam preparation we have been able to share in the joy of those who have passed the exam and have been humbled by the stories of those who worked so very hard but fell short of reaching that elusive passing score. Throughout our many years in this field, we have spoken with numerous examinees who did not pass the exam on their first attempt and became even more discouraged to attempt the exam again after reviewing the repeat test taker exam results. Although the results look grim please know that this is not a death sentence. Many times, a repeat examinee will get caught up in solely studying the areas where they did poorly the first time they attempted the exam and forget to refresh on the topics that they scored well on in a past attempt. They can also fall prey to the thought of "I only failed by a few points so there is no need to study as much as I did previously". Unfortunately, neither one of these cases leads to positive results. As a repeat test taker, an examinee needs to prepare with the same veracity as they did for the previous exam. Even though the NCEES exam syllabus typically remains the same or may only have minor changes, the types of questions and the areas of focus often change significantly between each of the exam sessions. A lack of proper preparation can lead to another failed attempt. After speaking with hundreds of students over the years we have also determined that confidence can be an issue as well. Oddly enough this can either be too much confidence or not enough. Too much confidence can cause a test taker to lack in their preparation and even rush through problems during an exam assuming they know the answer because "they have done this before". On the inverse, many repeat examinees can lack the confidence to know that a particular solution is correct because they are subconsciously thinking about their previous experience and how they may have felt confident in a particular area but do not score as well as they had thought they would. At School of PE we are not only here to assist you in your preparation by providing review materials, instructor lead classes, ondemand classes as well as practice problems and solutions we are here to help in building the necessary confidence to pass the PE exams. School of PE provides students many features that can address their areas of concern and relay their past experiences to other students. We provide access to send questions to the instructor (even for our ondemand review courses), student-led discussion forums and one on one individualized tutoring sessions. School of PE takes your success very seriously and attributes your success to our success.
  3. Since the information is still fresh in your mind you will not need to spend valuable time brushing up on topics such as mathematics and probability and statics, unlike someone who not been in school for quite some time. The FE exam covers a large number of topics which can prove to be difficult for someone who has not been recently acclimated to a study schedule. School of PE provides courses that will assist you in your exam preparation without making you feel as though you are back in school.
  4. We are very disappointed to hear that you were dissatisfied with our course. School of PE always strives to provide a quality product and our student's satisfaction is our number one priority.
  5. Although there are benefits to moving to CBT exams, School of PE certainly understands that many test takers are more comfortable with the traditional paper & pencil exam. With that being said we would like to take this time to remind everyone that the last PE Mechanical Exam is scheduled for October 25th, 2019, which is only a few months away. Keeping this deadline in mind you should also consider the average student spends 180 to 200 hours preparing for the PE exams so the time to start studying for this exam is now. School of PE provides a review course that not only comprehensively reviews the pertinent topics but also provides problem-solving techniques as well as tips on tackling the paper & pencil exam.
