“Dr. Tom’s course was essential to my success. With his help, I passed on my first attempt. I would recommend for this course, especially to those that enjoy the virtual classroom-type of instruction. Dr Tom’s course content alone is worth the price, but the real value for me came from having a rock solid structure that I know is absolutely tailored for the PE exam. – Tommy S. PE, Las Vegas, NV”

"There is no magic bullet for passing this exam, but if you're willing to put in the work, the 20-Week course is invaluable."
"I passed with an 84%! I am convinced that without Dr. Tom's Classroom I would not have done nearly as well and there's a good chance I would not have passed. I was very impressed, and I highly recommend that anybody who is planning to take the PE Exam take Dr. Tom's Classroom review courses and follow his study outline."
"No nonsense, make the plan, work the plan kind of guy. If you want a plan that will put you on the track to first time success, Dr. Tom is your man."
"Dr. Tom's course was essential to my success. With his help, I passed on my first attempt. I would recommend for this course, especially to those that enjoy the virtual classroom-type of instruction. Dr Tom's course content alone is worth the price, but the real value for me came from having a rock solid structure that I know is absolutely tailored for the PE exam."
"I can say with absolute certainty that Dr. Tom’s review course was the key to my success. I was doubtful that I could get back up to speed on so many of the subjects that I spent years studying in college, but it worked!"
"If you are looking for a PE review course, look no farther. My advice, if you are going to devote that much of your time to studying, spend the money for the review course. I have no doubt I would have passed the exam the first time if I had taken Dr. Tom's review course. Don't spend 400 hours kicking yourself for trying to save a few dollars, just take the course. If I could go back in time I would spend 10 times the cost of the review course to take it from the start. After all, how much is your time worth to you?"
"His no-nonsense approach coupled with a wide-ranging experience and clear explanations was undoubtedly a key factor leading to my passing score on the exam. With better than competitive prices, effective teaching ability, and proven results, Dr. Tom's Classroom is undeniably the best value in Mechanical Engineering PE exam preparation. Thanks Dr. Tom!"
"If you don’t read my entire testimonial – here is the “bottom line upfront:” Look no further! If you work the program, watch the lectures, do the problems, prepare the personalized resource notebooks, and use the participant forum... you will pass the exam. Thank you Dr. Tom and your entire staff."
"Dr. Tom's 20 Week course helped me learn everything I needed to pass the PE exam on the first try. I have already recommended the course to my coworker and I will encourage other ME's to take the course. I just wish I could shake Dr. Tom's hand and tell him thank you for everything!"
"I honestly believe that I could not have passed the exam without Dr. Tom’s teaching, guidance and strategy. Dr. Tom should be your #1 resource for exam preparation!"
