What our students have to
say about their Exam Prep Course
February 6, 2014
I am writing to let you know
that I passed my contractor H3 class 1 license exams. I was
the one who sat up front and was pretty sick the whole two
days we were in class. I wanted to let you know how I did it
so that you can use it as an example for others. I tried to
listen and apply what you told us.
During the exam: Business law,
I looked up everything, as much as I could and marked the ones
I could not find quickly. just like you taught us.
I thought I did well, but was
not completely sure that I passed. I know that I would not
have passed without your course and I am very confident that
you were the best instructor for the course. Your knowledge
of the material amazed me. If I need to take another course I
will be sure to go to your classes and I will absolutely
recommend your courses to anyone.

Just wanted to thank you for all your help and encouragement.
I got my letter today…I couldn’t believe it as I thought the
test was definitely harder this time than others and felt even
worse Friday night, but I know that all your prep helped in
getting me through it ok. Thanks again and I’ll see you in CE

H-3 Class 1 Exam
Just wanted to let
you know that I took your class on April 10th and 11th and
took my H-3 Class 1 Exam on Monday April 12th. Well I just
wanted to let you know that I passed both exams business and
technical the first time, had it not been for your class I'm
sure it would have taken more than one time.
So thanks for all
the help and advice see you in cont. ed.
Exam results For Jeff R
I took your prep course on Oct. 26-27. I took
the H31 exam on Nov 1, that was a tough 5 hour exam. But I
managed to pass the first time, only because I took your class
and used your methods. You had stressed the time restraint
for the business and law, which I managed to finish. The
technical part was another story. When I left the exam I did
not think I passed, but I was wrong - I did PASS, Ya buddy.
Thank you for your help.
