After tasting success in the FE and PE exams, you are all set to take up the SE Structural Engineering exam. If you thought you could clear the SE exam with basic knowledge of concepts, think again. The SE structural engineering exam is not like any other engineering exam, it requires in-depth knowledge of the subject and ace problem solving skills. The 16 hour exam is divided into Vertical and Lateral forces exams, each spanning 8 hours. The exam requires a lot of time and financial commitment from students.
Self-study may not always yield the desired results. What is required is streamlined preparation, knowledge of high probability topics and ample practice exercises. Enrolling for a comprehensive review course empowers students with the knowledge and confidence to tackle the high difficulty level of the SE Exam. The review course is sought after by many learners however track record, pass rates and the reputation of the educator need to be borne in mind while making a choice. Initially, I was skeptical about taking up a review course, but once I saw the confidence level of my colleague, who had enrolled for a review course, I immediately enrolled for the course.
Here is how a review course can make a difference in exam preparation –
•Providing in-depth knowledge of concepts and extensive practice sessions
•Streamlining my preparation schedule
•Interactive lectures from subject matter experts
•Crisp and precise class notes and handouts
•Seamless communication with peers and instructors
There are a number of reputed educators like Kaplan, Simplilearn and School of PE, offering review courses for the SE exam. After evaluating the features of various courses, I narrowed down on the SE Exam review course offered by School of PE. Not only did this course help me clear the SE Exam, but it let me explore the depths of structural engineering concepts. The 60 hour review course covers Vertical and Lateral SE concepts through exhaustive refresher and workshop sessions. This course is available as LIVE Online sessions and Ondemand sessions. The teaching faculty consists of highly experienced instructors, who are subject matter experts in various areas of SE. Students can interact with peers and instructors though the Discussion Forum access and get their doubts cleared. The study material covers all the SE concepts in a crisp and easy to follow manner.
