    The Instructor

    An American success story, Gary Blank has taught and helped thousands of engineers to become professionally registered. He has also helped thousands of professionals internationally to start and expand their consulting practices. He earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, at the age of 24. He has pursued parallel careers in industry and academia. He has consulted for dozens of industrial clients, and has also held full-time faculty positions at leading universities. He was the founding chairman of the IEEE Consultants Network of Chicago/Rockford which includes members from 5 states. He was the national Chairman of the AICN (Alliance of IEEE Consulting Networks with a membership of over 2000 engineering consultants). He is the IEEE-USA President 2014.

    "I have been a successful engineering consultant for many years. My clients are often impressed by my ability to solve tough engineering problems promptly. I have taught full-time at four major universities and part-time at two others. I have taught both the FE and PE exam review courses several times. I am very proud of the responses of my students and their success on the exams. They say they enjoy my refreshing approach which helps to make every subject interesting. They appreciate being directed to what they really need to study to pass the exam. The winning strategies I have perfected which help them to solve the problems rapidly in interesting and often non-conventional ways are the results of years of successful teaching.

    It has become clear to me that an effective way I can share my gift with more students is through the medium of DVD's. Now I can be with them whenever they are ready and wherever they need me. My goal is their success. I enjoy teaching engineering and the challenge of helping all my students to become professionally registered."

    Comments of Students  

     

     My wife and three kids thank you

    Dr. Blank:
    I am not sure if you remember me, but I recently prepared for the P.E. exam (electrical) and used your videos and workbooks to prepare.  We spoke a few times on the phone when I had questions about the material. I have a B.S. in Physics-Engineering and this was my fourth attempt at the PE exam.  Before taking your course my score history was 63, 63, and 68.  Then I took your course. I became very confident in areas that were unfamiliar to me such as Control Systems, Stability, and Digital Logic.

    Thanks to you and your GREAT instruction, I PASSED on the first attempt after taking your course!!!!.  You are truly a GREAT teacher and I would highly recommend your videos and workbooks to anyone taking the exam. 

    My wife and three kids thank you as well. I would be interested in any other videos you would recommend.
    Warmest Thanks!
    Sam Curtis, P.E.

     


    Took both of your video courses for the FE/EIT and the PE Exam and PASSED THEM BOTH ON MY FIRST ATTEMPTS

    Dr. Blank,

    I have had the privilege of taking your video courses for both the FE/EIT and the PE exams. On June 8th I received notice from the State Board that I passed the PE exam.

    Your courses are wonderfully taught. I recommend you everywhere I go.

    Thank you!

    Steven R. Moore, P.E.


     Out of school for 25 years, passed on first attempt, could not have done it without your course

    Dr. Blank

    The information you provided as a review was very beneficial & I learned from you how to take the test. But I really needed brushing up on electronics, some math (Fourier, Laplace, linear differential equations (LDEs), and Bode Plots), circuit analysis (Thevenin's/Norton's Theorems); and, I never had a controls course. I had been out of school for 25 years! First, with your help I became quite confident at solving LDEs, truly understanding Fourier Analysis and Laplace Transforms as well as Bode Plots. Then with all the very straight forward advice on transistor and op amp circuits, I became very comfortable solving these problems as well as learning (I believe enough about control systems analysis to pass the test) control systems from your easy-learning teaching method. All in such a very short period of time I believe for me...about 6 months of concentrated effort. Incidentally, all of the above were addressed on my test.

    The things I liked most about the program was/is that you worked problems out completely leaving no anxiety for me to fill in the blanks, it was truly comprehensive and provided total scope learning, sectionalized enough for me to concentrate on the areas I did not use often. Also, I related very well to the videos and the hard copy reference material, and the extra bonus of your personal help answering my questions on the phone and by email. I could not have done it without your help.

    Thank you very much,
    Lou Faverio


    No local courses available here.

    Dr. Blank,
    Before I bought the course, I was skeptical. I went ahead with it anyway due to no local PE study courses. I passed the EE PE on the first try with a 80%.

    Dr. Blank's course E-440 gave me all the tools I needed to accomplish this task. I had to work hard, but I did it on the first try! The biggest advantage of the videos was that I watched at my own speed and at my own desk. Multiple times, when I needed personal help, Dr. Blank always answered my questions (email and phone) cheerfully and promptly. Wow - it feels great to be done with all that.

    Gratefully relieved,
    Joe Landis, PE

    Our company group success story

    " The video instruction for the Electrical Engineering Professional Engineer's Exam is extremely comprehensive.

    The videos and review manual are well synchronized.

    I was a little concerned about the ability to get individual attention while using a video series for review; but Dr. Blank answered my questions promptly and with extreme clarity sometimes more than once.

    We used the video series in a group environment; this works well if everyone is open and responsive allowing the videos to be stopped and replayed as necessary. Sometimes, the interaction of a group helps understanding. Additionally, some participants reviewed the videos at home if they needed additional time on a particular subject.

    The video series conforms to YOU: It allows you to choose what to study; spend more time or less time on each individual subject-until you feel comfortable.

    I would recommend the video series as a preparation tool for the PE exam - it is well organized by subject; formatted to keep your studying on track."

    Lucia W. Harvey, P.E.


    I Passed on the First Attempt

    I passed the Electrical Engineering PE Exam on my first attempt.  Dr. Blank's instructional videos helped me to focus on the material that was most important.  Dr. Blank is able to simplify complex problems in order to make them much easier to understand and solve.  If you are like me, watching videos keeps my attention much longer than reading books.  This allowed me to study for longer periods of time and become prepared for the exam much quicker.  In addition, Dr. Blank makes himself personally available over the telephone to answer your questions.   Dave Evans, PE


    Best training ever.

    Dear Dr. Blank,
    "Your video series is the best training session I have ever used for prep for the PE exam. Hats off to you. I have re-learned so much about electrical engineering from this video series that can't be taken away from me.

    I will send for the semiconductor electronics lesson in the near term.

    I will also recommend you to others. Feel free to use this e-mail as you wish as a satisfied customer reference. Thanks again," Alvin Garibaldi


    Excellent Teacher

    Dr. Blank,
    "I just want to say that you are an EXCELLENT teacher! I have 4 college degrees and have been in school about 20 years off and on, and you are one of the finest instructors I have ever had the pleasure of learning under. After just 2 weeks and 3 modules, I feel more confident than I have ever felt for the exam." Tom Powell


    I passed the EIT just by viewing the videos

    Dr. Blank,
    Id like to mention that I passed the FE/EIT exam just by viewing the videos. Thanks,
    Minhtri Pham


    With your course I passed the first time after being 14 years out of school,
    while working 50+ hours per week

    Dr. Blank
    "Thank you so much for your home study video course! I have been out of school for 14 years and working with your video course was critical to my passing the FE the first time. Having the right tools and coaching helped me to systematically review all the critical areas, learn great test taking strategies, and to have the confidence to get through and pass the exam. I have already recommended your course to several of my friends so they can pass too! Your course is far more comprehensive than the other preparation courses and having the flexibility to view the videos in the comfort of my home supported my studying while working 50+ hours per week! "

    I especially appreciate the time you spent with me on the phone answering my questions and giving me valuable tips and advice.

    Thanks and with much appreciation!
    Philippa Taylor


    Third time is the charm!

    Thank you! I just passed the FE after using your course. It was my third time. The first two I studied on my own. The last time I used your video course. My score went from 69-68 to 75. So now I am off to the PE exam.

    Thanks again,
    Steve


    15 Years out of college.

    Dr. Blank
    As an electrical engineer out of college for almost fifteen years, I needed a structured review course for the FE exam to help me relearn many of the basic concepts; particularly in subjects like statics, thermo, and fluid mechanics. Your excellent E-327 video course provided exactly what I wanted plus it motivated me to study. I passed on my first attempt.
    Thank you.
    Chris


    "It gave me confidence. It helped me to realize that the solutions are often based on basic knowledge & not necessarily on calculations."

    Kathy Meiners


    "Excellent instruction. The related analogies made it more understandable. It helped me to identify short cuts. Built my confidence."

    Mike Olderbak


    "Challenging and fun. The instructor maintains a thorough working knowledge of the material. He explained the most efficient techniques to solve engineering problems."

    Steven Kennedy
