“I needed a prep course that told me how, what, and when to study. DTC was perfect in that regard. I walked into my study sessions daily not having to worry about what needed to be accomplished. I am 100% confident saying that without your course, I wouldn’t have succeeded with a first-time go.
Thank you so much! ”

Our History

Dr. Tom’s Classroom was born in 2009 from the passion of Dr. Tom Brown, PE, a master teacher, who absolutely loved helping people pass the Mechanical PE Exams. He had a vision for how he could do that for more people via an online classroom. His enthusiasm, and his unique ability to teach engineering concepts effectively, attracted other like-minded professionals and instructors. Together they created the comprehensive Mechanical and Civil Reviews we offer today. 

“Students can always spot a teacher who cares about their success, and it’s apparent with Dr. Tom. It’s obvious that Dr. Tom has many years of teaching experience, and his lessons are well planned and communicated.”
– Michael Kruse, PE, Florida

“Dr. Tom’s class was not only very critical in my passing of the exam, but it was exactly what I was looking for in a review course. It laid out the important subjects and gave me a guide to be successful. I was very pleased with all the materials Dr. Tom’s class gave to aid in my success – study guides, weekly schedules, practice problems, video lessons, and a question/answer forum.” 

– Britt, PE, Alexandria, VA

Our Plan

Our plan for your success is based on the Dr. Tom Method. We call it that because Dr. Tom came up with it, but over the years we have all worked together to fine tune and develop this method into a highly structured review that step by step helps you develop the problem-solving skills and strategies you need to pass the PE exam. We’ve taken the guesswork out of what to study and what not to study. Just follow the plan and concentrate on learning what you need to know.

“I am proud to report that I received a passing score on the exam. If a retired US Navy test pilot who has not looked at undergraduate engineering for over 30 years can pass using this course, then this is positive proof that the DTC method is effective. I followed the course to the letter, and in retrospect, the only thing that I could have done differently was to trust in the review and the Dr. Tom process for test taking. I am now a believer in the DTC method.”

– Steve, PE
