I took the EET depth prep course for the Civil PE - Water Resources and Environmental. The course was a lot of work, but I absolutely would not have passed without taking this class. It was a 'you don't know what you don't know' sort of situation going in. I have been out of school for 7 years and only worked in the water resources field for approximately 1 year after college. I have had a wide variety of jobs since then - a couple have been in the engineering field; none of them have been in WR or environmental or even true design. My point in saying that is that I had very little knowledge and experience going into the PE prep. Nazrul's class was excellent from the start. He is clearly invested in each of his student's success on the exam. The course materials are very well laid out with loads of worked examples to help teach you and then even more problems to practice on. They way he explains topics is so straightforward and easy to comprehend. If you don't understand it the first time, he will try a different method of explanation to help drive the point home. The class is absolutely worth the effort and it plus the binder were vital to my success on the exam. The only other prep material I had for the PM portion was the depth exam I purchased from NCEES, CERM and a Metcalf & Eddy WWT book I used as a reference in the exam. As a side note, I took the exam in October 2019 and I used the CERM 15th edition (current is CERM 16th) and saved a bunch of money buying it in good used condition. I didn't have any issues with outdated spec references since that's not really part of the AM portion or WRE depth. My only regret is that I didn't also take the morning/breadth prep through EET. A different class was sponsored through my job for the breadth portion and was taught by Peter Martin. The class had almost no instruction or explanation and was just a poorly organized series of questions that he sort of walked through each week and the rest was up to you to self-teach. This was not well-suited to my learning style and, had I not spent a considerable amount of time preparing for the breadth topics aside from his course I think I would have really struggled. EET is expensive, but don't let it scare you away. In my opinion, it is absolutely worth the money to pass on the first attempt! I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone considering the Civil PE - WRE. Good luck (and thanks Nazrul!)!
