  • The CPE Discount Store offers a great selection of online CPE courses.   I was able to complete my course on my time frame which is a great way to take CPE.  Having the book as a reference for future work was also helpful.

This was a very interesting & informative book. The chapters were short and well laid out.
The test followed the book easily so it was a great test to cover the material. Highly recommend!

I have used the CPE subscription a few times now. I find it easy to check out books from the library or buy them & then take the test. It\'s very cost effective.

My request would be for more choices to be added. I have done many of them & cannot realistically repeat. Also, the books that have short chapters or bulleted points make it easier to follow along for test purposes

Overall it is good but I have few notes to make:

1. I suggest you add more courses.
2. Materials/Books are so long (400+ pages each courses). The ones I have taken. I would suggest they use more precise/short materials in the future.

Other than that the price is fair and I am considering renewing.

Either you re-did the course after jstone\'s review, or he/she confused this course with another one. The test for this course had 15 questions, not 120, and all of them were about material covered in the course. It was fine and I recommend it.
