    Effective Review by Roy
    I found the practice exam very useful in preparing for the NCEES PS exam. Great refresher to reinforce key topics and supplement other study aids. After practicing Engineering for many years, I decided to pursue Surveying. With the materials PPI offers, I was able to successfully pass the PS exam on the first attempt. (Posted on 4/23/2019)
