About the Review Courses

Penn State's comprehensive PE and EIT review courses have prepared engineers for their professional licensure examinations since 1968. Review sessions provide excellent subject matter that completely prepares engineers to sit for the national exams.

Courses employ a comprehensive collection of questions and answers from past exams while familiarizing participants with exam formats and procedures. In addition, all programs require participants to spend time out of class reviewing material and solving homework problems.

“I felt very positive both going into and out of the exam. I appreciated the examples that were done in class and in the notes. They were very useful in taking the exam. I am so glad that I took the review course. Although at times it felt very long, it made me at least think about the exam and study more than I would have otherwise. I really appreciate the efforts of all the instructors. The course was well thought out and extremely helpful.”
