    Zach is really good when you're 1-on-1. He obviously spends a lot of time preparing for your session and he provides the video and notes afterwards. I bought two sessions for $500, and he gave me much more than 2 hours (across two days). You may think that he is charging $250/hr, but he really isn't. That is the cost of the session, yes, but when you factor in a lot of what he give you, his hourly rate is much less than that. He does not charge like therapists or lawyers, where you get charged by the hour, but only get 50 minutes. He makes sure you understand and that you cover the things you need to. If that means a few extra minutes, or more, then he is prepared to do that for you. He coordinates with you ahead of time and gets to know what your expectations are, discusses what he can fit in the session, and then you go from there. If you have extra questions, he makes sure to go over them. If things are taking too long, he will suggest further study by referring to other sources, or you can press on with that topic. He tries to cram as much into the time as possible in order to give you the best value. If you work for him by providing examples and reasons why you struggle with them, that only makes the lessons more valuable and worth while (and financially worth it) because he can target the exact thing you are struggling with. This is freeing on so many levels since you are able to solve problems you struggled with and understand topics better that you may only been able to "get by" on. This is worth it about 3-4 weeks before the exam after you take a timed test (I did my timed test with the NCEES exam) so that you can tell your weak points and you can give that to Zach to help correct. I took it a little later that that, but looking back would try to do it a little earlier than I did (took it the week prior to the exam, both sessions). It worked for me, and the material that we went over paid dividends come exam time. It seems steep, but if it means being more equipped to pass, isn't it worth it? You can hunt resources and references all day to explain things you are struggling with, or have them targeted and resolved in one pass. I was very happy with what we were able to accomplish, and it is worth the money!

    I have recently come across Zach's course material. I was a winner of a webinar contest and got an opportunity to study with Zach on his one on one tutoring. He is simply great and clear on the concepts. He not only explains the theories very clearly, but challenges you to think and grasp the concept. Sometimes he can be a bit quick, but he is always ready to take a step back and always answer questions. Another great thing about him is that he is always responding to your emails/questions within 24 hrs! I have never had that before from any other class I tried. Good luck and I certainly recommend taking up his class!

    Few days before the PE exam, I had difficulties with solving Power Electronics questions showed in NCEES sample exam or few other available exam prep materials. There were also few other areas that I needed a little bit more help with, such as three-phase circuit analysis. I approached Zach for a two-hour private session and I am really happy with my decision. He spends time to prepare the course material/presentation, goes through the concepts and explains thoroughly how to tackle each question. He also records the session and sends you the video then you can go back and watch the video and benefit from that. You truly do a great job, Zach! I wish you success and happiness for ever!

    I just had my private One on One private tutoring session with Zach. It was a tremendous help. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a nice casual experience very similar to his weekly online Webinars leading up to the Exam. Except, this is a one on one experience instead of with 30-40 other students. A week or so before our session, I emailed Zach a list of sample problems that had been giving me trouble. During the session, he focused on these examples and went as in-depth as I needed. When I was good with it, we moved on. Caution - the time seems to fly so be careful not to spend all your time on one or two problems. We were able to cover several problems during our session. He even went over our allotted time to make sure I was comfortable with the material. While the weekly Webinars sometimes seem too long and are tough after a long day at work, I always take something away that I didn't know before - some little nuance of a subject or problem that I had failed to pick up on earlier. For that reason alone, they are very much worth the time and effort. The One on One session is even better because he focuses just on the material which you need to focus on. He really helped me understand diode and thyristor type circuits and their resulting waveforms. I feel now that I will be better prepared for the PE Exam. I would highly recommend a private session especially if you're having trouble in some particular areas. After failing the PE Exam twice - many years ago - Zach's program has really helped me tremendously with preparing for the PE Exam. I feel that I will go into the exam much better prepared and having a much better chance of passing this time. He has spend a bunch of time helping me over the last several weeks/months via email - always answering my questions and responding within a few days - sometimes the next day and on a few occasions the same day. I realized just how much correspondence we have had when I went back through my emails trying to find an earlier one. He says he gets busier and flooded with more emails as exam time approaches - so I would recommend starting early with your preparation. He has really seemed to take a personal interest in my endeavor to pass. He seems to really want to help and wants me to succeed. That's really different from my college professors with which you either got it or you didn't. I have been out of school a VERY long time and was apprehensive about studying for the exam again. He was also very encouraging along the way. I really appreciated (and needed) that. No program is perfect though and Zach's Electrical-PE-Review is no different. Like all similar programs, not every single subject is covered in it's entirety. In fact, the module "Protective Coordination" was published on his website just 2 weeks prior to the upcoming exam. This tells me; however, that he is continuing to update and tweak his material. I hate to sound so much like an infomercial for Zach (especially since I haven't yet taken the exam), but I am very impressed with his PE Review program and would HIGHLY recommend it. If you can afford it, I would also highly recommend a private session especially if there are areas that are giving you trouble. I might not pass the PE Exam, but if I don't I can't really blame Zach. Thanks again Zach for all your help.

    If you've gone through the review course and feel some areas you need a little tweaks to get you prepared for the PE Exam I highly recommend having a One on One tutoring with Zach. He helps you understand the problems and the "why's" and "what if's" for problems that may show up in the PE Exam. He's honestly the best out there tailored for the PE Exam. His course is a simplification of courses you've taken in college that are easily digestible for you to understand after being away from college for years. His tutoring will get you prepared for the PE Exam and give you that extra push and confidence before going into your exam.

    I have been using the online course at ElectricalPEReview.com for a lot of my studying for the upcoming PE exam and recently had the pleasure of a few private tutoring sessions. Zach takes the time to thoroughly go through whatever subject you choose and present it in a way that you may have not seen before or don't remember from school. He makes sure that you are clear on the steps and you're free to ask questions any step along the way. I would highly recommend it if you are struggling with a particular concept or subject matter. It is also nice to get tips and tricks straight from someone who has already taken and passed the exam. It is another great resource for your study plan!

    I was one of the fortunate few to be able to win the private tutoring course with Zach. Although it was free, Zach treated it like a paid session. The set up was a nice touch, as we were grouped 3 student to one tutor. Since we were all on the video chat via google chat (which was very easy to setup with a camera and microphone) it was very personal and more like a classroom atmosphere. If there was any confusion, it was very easy to speak out and get your question answered. Zach prepared the course prior to the scheduled time. The content was very to the point. The tempo of the webinar was a great pace, which was fast enough to be efficient, yet slow enough to be understood. The webinar would run naturally to an appropriate stopping point, until all questions are answered, averaging about 1.5-2 hours. I appreciated how Zach would try to involve the students but not necessarily force the issue. In no way did I feel stressed or pressured to contribute. Although it was advantageous to work out the problems with Zach and practice the functions on your calculator. I have been studying this material for a while and taken another class prior. Prior classes would be very long and drawn out, using slides and lecture between the critical problem solving. Fortunately the tutoring session was more problem solving with lecture and understanding as we proceed. I think I needed to gather a better base of understanding the basics before tackling the more difficult and complicated problems. I learned a lot by Zach breaking down the formulas and making me understand how they are derived. Also how drawing our diagrams will greatly help understand and interpret the problem better. The video will be posted to review and the notes were provided as well. The tutoring course was very helpful and I was able to build my confidence to move forward with my studying for the PE exam. Highly Recommend!

Jonathan Zisko (April 2017 PE Exam - Passed))

Zach is really good when you're 1-on-1. He obviously spends a lot of time preparing for your session and he provides the video and notes afterward.

 I bought two sessions. You may think that he is charging $250/session, but he really isn't. When you factor in how much he prepares and what he gives you per session, his hourly rate is much less than that. He does not charge like therapists or lawyers, where you get charged by the hour, but only get 50 minutes.
