PE Review Silver Subscription

Our most popular course

Hundreds of civil engineers have used our Silver “Video on Demand” Course to help them prepare for and pass the PE Exam, and so can you. The PE Review Silver Membership is an efficient and effective way to prepare for the PE Exam. To get the most out of the course, we suggest you follow the track outlined below in the How it Works section, as well as encourage you to try the problems on your own at first, check your work, then go and watch the video.

How it Works

How it Works Flowchart

  1. Download a PDF file for the topics you want to review. The file will contain about eight problems with detailed partial solutions.
  2. Try to solve the problems, on your own.
  3. Take a peek at the partial solution and fill in the blanks.
  4. Open the Flash video and watch and listen to the Instructor walk you through the solution.
  5. Go back and watch and listen to the Flash video as many times as you like.
