I’m Tom Brown, and I based my online 20-Week Mechanical Engineering PE Exam Review on my many years of experience preparing mechanical engineers for the PE Exam. With the help of my DTC team, I developed the tried and true structure and method that we offer online today. Our Mechanical courses will provide you will a step by step path to being successful on the exam. It requires a tremendous time commitment and effort on your part, but if you follow the plan that we have laid out for you, you will have everything you need to succeed.

To help you start your review with a full understanding of what is required to complete the course successfully and pass the exam, I’m going to go over the Dr. Tom Method and how you will use it throughout your review to organize your resources and train yourself to identify familiar problems and solve them quickly during the exam

In all three Mechanical Engineering PE Exam Reviews, we teach you the fundamentals of each topic and a selected method of solving problems that can be applied across classes of problems. The goal is to build your knowledge base in a way that can be applied quickly to problems. By following this method, you will have fewer equations to become familiar with and you will have less decision making to do during the exam.”
