What People Are Saying

“I am extremely thankful for EET instructors’ dedication in helping people like me preparing for the Civil 8hrs P.E exam. Theirs, particularly subject handouts/homework problems are simple and easy to understand.”

Hai L., Sacramento, CA

“I love this PE class because the instructors went out of their way to make sure the attendees understood the concept.  They have held special sessions as a follow-up, made phone calls till the last day before the exam asking if the attendees have any questions.  There is nothing like this class offered by any educational outlet.” 

Ali, A., Riverside, CA

“Your program was the best for me, you all were personable and provided your free time from your families, which I know was precious, to help me with all my questions.”
