I can't thank Zach and this course enough for adequately preparing me to pass the PE exam on my first attempt. We all know our time is super valuable and the course, if followed to it's max extent, does a great job of building your knowledge and intuition without wasting your time. Some details about my exam experience and background:
-Recent EE master's grad (so recent I was completed it early July '22 while prepping for the PE exam and studied for both concurrently).
-I bought the course in April and took the course on August 6th, but I didnt fully begin studying solely for the exam until July when I finished the PE, so I only had about one month of fully dedicated studying (*note: I do not recommend this approach, it's just what worked for me, my work, and my family with other major career milestones approaching).
-When studying concurrently I focused on the PE about 2 days per week, covering between 6-8 hours of material.
-The final month I 'crammed' studying for the PE 6 days a week, completed two full-length, full-simulation practice exam sessions and probably allocated 22-25 hrs a week each week that last month.
-I took the course as an online, asynchronous student, and watched every live class on 1.5 or 2x speed (some more than once) but never joined live.
When I started I was averaging 25%-35% on practice exams of differing lengths. My last practice using Zach's full length exam I got a 55%. This is all to say that it's possible to pass, just as many others on here have stated, even if you're not getting 70+% on what you may consider to be a 'diagnostic.'
Good luck and get after it!
