    Could be improved Review by Michelle
    I like the cards, they are definitely useful to remember those terms that have slipped your mind.
    1) I am a visual learner and I know there are many more of us out in the world, it seems to me some of these could use small pictures.
    2) It would be nice if they came in a small container and not just plastic wrap. Nothing fancy, even a cardboard box would be nice to contain them after you have opened them and to make them transport friendly (even kid and animal friendly).
    3) A divider of some sort would be nice between the groups, something a little taller, thicker, or a different color. (Posted on 4/23/2016)

    My First Review was removed/never posted Review by Clark
    I posted a critical review of the product because it did not meet my expectations or appear as shown in the 'sample pages'. It makes me think that the website moderator will not allow critical reviews of their products making any posted reviews biased in favor of the product. Maybe that is the reason there are no reviews listed for this product.


    Apologies for the glitch in our review posting process. Thank you for your feedback. (Posted on 8/28/2014)

    Not what the "Sample Pages" shows Review by Clark
    I purchased the Civil Engineering in a Flash cards to help with quick recognition of topics among all civil disciplines. While there are plenty of cards that span the topics, the product is not as advertised and is listed as a "non-returnable" product.
    -Each of the five disciplines have 100 cards to test your knowledge and is formatted to be used forward or backwards
    -The product is NOT color coded as shown in the Sample Pages link. This was the selling point for me to purchase the cards at the $30 price point.
    -The flash cards are printed on flimsy paper. Lower quality than a standard business card.
    -Price $30, if the product would have met my expectations then this would not be a negative as I would feel the value is there. However, given the product I received I would give it a value of $10-$15.
    Overall, if you research this product and are excited about any features that are more than just words on a piece of paper, you'll be disappointed. I'm sure there are other places to purchase a similar product that would deliver what they advertise. Good luck on your PE exam!

    FROM PPI, December 2014:
