4.  What time, study and practice commitments are required?

With our easily accessible Resources you can focus on your exam, types of questions or topics - all of them essentially ‘on demand.’  With our additional web site pages for non-PEO candidates, and our Study Questions (True or False, Multiple Choice and Short Answer questions) you are able to check on your understanding and pinpoint possible areas to focus on.   You can work at your own pace and review as often as you wish.  The Definitions section and the Review Cards section enable you to concentrate on your learning and overall comprehension.
The convenience of ExPS™ and our excellent resources allow you to maximize your review time - day or night, morning or afternoon, week day or weekend, work day or holiday, any number of hours - for months prior to your exam - and even to the minute you enter the examination room.
We recommend that you purchase the suggested textbooks from us - new or used (if available).  As you read them you may wish to prepare your own study notes - however - we provide complete textbook Summary Notes that allow you to review both texts in a few hours each. We will guide you through the important topics and point you to the most frequently asked exam questions.
 We suggest that you attempt as many of the supplied exam-type questions as possible.  All of our questions are either from, or based on, previous exams.
The time required depends on the individual - some like to prepare for months.  We have students register in the 48 hours before the exam and successfully write the exam.  Twenty to thirty hours is a good base preparation time, but it will vary with each person.

Typical minimums and maximums:
Class - 6 and 20
Tutorial - 1 and 3

We do not rent large university lecture halls and hope to fill them to capacity.  We could not offer personal service using that approach.
Our determining factors are travel expenses for the leader(s) and facility costs.  ExPS™ will attempt to deliver the services in the most cost effective manner. If you have a group within a company or community and require special times or dates - please let us know.

12.  What payment methods does ExPS™ accept?

ExPS™ accepts Visa, MasterCard and American Express on a secure web site through PayPal.

13.  What happens if an ON-SITE Class or Tutorial is rescheduled or cancelled?

They would be rescheduled due to inclement weather (or other unforseen circumstances) prohibiting the attendance of participants or an Instructor.  An alternate date and a guaranteed date may be used. If a suitable date and time are not possible, a full refund will be made. Registering candidates select their first choice, an alternate choice and a guaranteed choice of ON-SITE dates.

14.  Can I cancel ON-SITE Services and receive a refund?

This may be possible under some circumstances and with some limitations.  When offering Tutorials and Classes throughout Ontario, ExPS™ incurs significant travel and accommodation costs, which in many cases cannot be covered if a minimum number of participants is not realized.  Generally, if there is sufficient notice given, and, the presentation arrangements are not jeopardized, then a full refund (less credit card and administrative expenses) may be possible.

15.  Can I cancel ON-LINE Services and receive a refund?

ExPS™ tracks every Login to our site including IP addresses, dates, times, and resources accessed.  Once you have used the services, cancellation is not possible.

Many of ExPS™ materials are designed for you to download and print for your personal use.  You agree that non-personal use is prohibited.  Copying, loaning, sharing, giving, reproducing or the sale of ExPS™ materials in any format, for use by others is not permitted.  This is a law and ethics exam preparation service.  You agree to our Legal and Privacy Policy when registering.

17.  What do I need to buy?

ExPS™ encourages all participants to purchase the recommended textbooks suggested on the provincial engineering or association web sites.  We sell both new and used texts, AND, will buy them back from you after the exam (on the condition that the provincial engineering association still requires them). ExPS™ materials refer to these texts for suggested readings and in-depth study.  All ON-LINE participants (everyone registered) will have access to extensive information and notes covering all aspects of the exams.  ON-SITE participants will receive a package of materials (through the web site) designed for their personal notes and use.   Save your money - no need to purchase old exams - ExPS™ probably has more exam questions than you can use.

18.  What guarantee is offered?

ExPS™ Guarantee:  If you were unable to write your PPE exam for extenuating circumstances, or, were unsuccessful in your exam attempt, and, are allowed by your association to write the exam again (proof will be required), you may use the ON-LINE resources and services to prepare for the next scheduled exam for no additional cost (administrative fees may apply).  To the best of our knowledge every ExPS™ client passes.

Note - unlike some competitors, we do not guarantee that you will pass. which as you know,  is impossible to guarantee.
