Again, Five stars-the highest rating. Review by john
Overall
I liked the easy-to-use web-address (PPI2pass). Once there, I was able to post my question and Mr. James "XXXX" read my post and quickly responded with an explanation. That post/response allowed me to resolve my problem immediately. Thank you PPI. (Posted on 3/7/2018)

Ehhh Review by Christopher
Overall
I really do appreciate all that PPI has to offer, I would not have been able to pass the FE without it. The user interface is a little strange - Maybe consider only one log in with all Courses / subscriptions / etc. having to log in multiple times on one website is quite tedious. (Posted on 3/6/2018)

PE study website not as good as FE Review by Greg
Overall
I used PPI 2 years ago to pass the FE. I credit the PPI resources and particularly the FE web experience for that. Understandably, the PE preparation is less "guided", however, the websites are slower, more tedious to navigate, and generally less user friendly. The content seems thoroughly researched, yet it could be presented in better fashion. (Posted on 1/19/2018)

I only utilized the practice exams, but they’re th Review by Alyssa
Overall
I only utilized the practice exams, but they’re the only ones I’ve seen that accurately replicate the actual FE. I took both practice exams and passed the FE! This was my 6th attempt, so this extra practice clearly helped! (Posted on 1/17/2018)

Problems were not as varied as I would have liked Review by Ryan
Overall
Problems were not as varied as I would have liked and I found the navigation to be tedious. I wanted to concentrate on one subject and when I selected that subject there always seemed to be other types of problems. Maybe it is just intended for the Breadth test but I wanted it for the concentration tests. Not bad just not quite what I needed. (Posted on 12/6/2017)

I have been using FEPREP material for the last 6 months to prepare for the FE Mechanical Exam. The online based material has helped me better prepare for the FE. I prefer using this method because it is closets to the real exam. (Posted on 11/23/2017)

Could Improve Material and Website Review by Kevin
Overall
PPI's customer service was nice.

Their website made it difficult to re-find items at times.

There were (3) different logins that had to be used to access the courses. There should be one that gets you into everything.

It would be nice if they had a forum that wasn't limited to the person's specific class. If there was a forum that included anyone that was taking a PPI class it would contain more information and help students more.

The practice problems and study material helped on the exam, but the practice exam was outdated and the problems took way too long compared to the test. The "Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam" and six minute solutions were entirely too long to work out. It was nice to have the structural engineering solved problems that had longer problems for reference, but for practice, time is limited and the more repetition and problems completed is key. Also, in the solved problem and six minute solution books, the solution should come directly after the problem, or the problem should be restated so that there is less flipping back and forth.

Great info but pricey Review by Ryan
Overall
I like the fact that everything is in one place. You can improve on your prices. It is very expensive and I can't afford much of your products. Also, your coupons don't work for everything. I am trying to buy a 700 Structural course, but the coupon only works if you buy all the books and binder tabs and everything? Come on, who needs binder tabs and a calculator that I won't ever use (already have one). (Posted on 8/15/2017)

Good refresher Review by Brian
Overall
The on demand courses take a lot of time. Get rid of the breaks and just dead time and it would help. The presented material the presenter have had a fair amount of errors which made it confusing. Fortunately the presenter was really sharp and noticed most of them right away, made note to have them fixed, before spending time going over a wrong solution. I passed FE electrical and computer so it is hard to complain to much but I really deep down feel like I want some of the money back. Best part of online was the section where the presenter went through problems. If there were maybe twice the problems and again edited for the dead time it would be even more a very valuable tool. Overall if you have the money why not use this tool in addition to others. (Posted on 7/28/2017)

Good But i missed some things... Review by Jodie
Overall
I thought the review videos and material was good. However, I did the on demand class, and there was a lot of reference materials that the instructor referred to, or emailed out to the students. I would check the forum, and a lot of the info he was emailing out, did not get put out there, so I was not able to get it. So, it you are going to use a previous years live course for the next years on-demand class, I think it would be good to have a library for the instructor to file documents that would be available for the on-demand students.

A Little Tough to Find Things Review by Heather
Overall
It's not bad, I just had a little difficulty getting to the grade book to confirm my submissions and such. Would be better if you added a link on the lefthand side for this instead of putting the link under another heading.

The review course itself was very good, but the class would get delayed multiple times with non-stop questions and we wouldn't finish the class all the time. It's one thing to have questions during the class, which is necessary to the learning process, but the questions were often allowed to go on for too long. This happened several times and I didn't think sacrificing our ability to finish the course was appropriate. When it goes passed a certain amount of time, the instructor needs to table the issue and discuss it over the forum website page. (Posted on 4/24/2017)
