Why PPI?

PPI gold medal serving 4 million engineers

We are the #1 developer of engineering exam prep books. Our books, such as the Civil Engineering Reference Manual and the FE Review Manual, are the must-have exam prep books for engineers around the world. Our prep courses provide this same level of comprehensive, high-quality, and effective training that engineers have come to expect from PPI.

Our founder and president is Michael R. Lindeburg, PE, the leading author of FE and PE exam prep materials. Engineers rely on the “Lindeburg” books to pass their exams. Why not take a course from the source?

We provide a structured homework syllabus to ensure you stay on track and practice as much as possible before exam day.

We provide free OnDemand lectures so you can start your exam prep right away.

We work around-the-clock to ensure all course content is updated to the current NCEES exam specs and codes.

Our instructors provide each student with personal attention and guidance and are specialists in their field. Feel free to ask questions during live lectures, live office hours, on the course discussion forum, and via email.

Our pass rates are up to 40% higher than the NCEES pass rates. See the “Pass Rates” tab for a breakdown by exam.

Our prep course bundles include homework materials, extra practice materials, and helpful resources/tools. We know that attending lectures isn’t enough to pass the exam—you also have to practice on your own as much as possible. This is why we’ve supplemented our courses with our #1 exam prep books and study tools.

Our courses are spread out over multiple months to ensure you have an appropriate amount of time to prepare for the exam—there’s no need to cram!

We guarantee you'll pass or you can repeat the OnDemand course at any time.
