The results have come out, and I passed the PE on the first try! With a 2 year engineering degree and being out of school for over 20 years, the ITRE review course was exactly what I needed. It touched on the subject matter that had been long forgotten. I firmly believe that this review course, along with the helpful hints of the instructors, helped me prepare for this exam and gave me the tools that I needed on exam day.
