"Dr. Ibrahim, I can't thank you enough for helping me UNDERSTAND seismic analysis and not just blindly solve problems to pass the exam. Thank you for taking the time to explain complex concepts in a simple clever way. Thank you for the extremely helpful book and the summary sheets that were crucial for my success in the exam. Thank you for taking the time to solve hard questions in class and repeating the concepts till everyone understood them. It has been a pleasure being your student. I finally passed my seismic exam and became a PE in CA thanks to your efforts."

Livermore, CA

"Ahmed, Thank you for your hard work and dedication to helping me achieve success with passing the Seismic Principles Exam. You are an extremely gifted teacher and an inspirational leader. Thank you for encouraging me and always having confidence in my abilities. You have helped made my dream come true!"

Redding, CA

"I have taken this test five times, and have also taken several classes to better understand the subject matter. Only after this class, I passed the exam. I cannot say enough about how great this class was. I only wish I have taken this class earlier, and saved myself a lot of money and heartaches. This is hands down the best class available and would recommend it to anyone taking the seismic exam. I do not have any structural background and this class provided me with great understanding of the concepts and test taking tips I needed. Ahmed, I wish there were more teachers out there that had your dedication and commitment to seeing their students achieve. You are truly one of a kind."

Irvine, CA

"Unlike other review courses out there; the subject matter approach was to master the fundamentals of the material rather than memorize where to use what formula. Ahmed was a coach and an instructor, always there to explain and encourage. The personal attention paid to each student taking the course was unlike anything I 've ever seen. Simply put, if you are willing to focus and work with Ahmed to learn the seismic analysis of buildings, take this class and feel confident knowing you will be passing the exam. Thanks again Ahmed for all your help."

Chicago, IL

"I really enjoyed your class and I appreciate and understand the way you are explaining the concepts. Your class has given me a lot of “aha” moments when I was able to tie concepts/principles together. The exam “short cuts” were also very helpful and the results speak for themselves. I was well prepared and passed the exam. Your commitment and dedication to the class, your students, always referred to as colleagues, is the best."
