PRIME Review Program

. . . Advance and Comprehensive

The review program is comprehensive in the sense that it is composed of three different phases of intensive preparation, namely:
Advance Review Course
This is an intensive lecture/discussion type covering basic theories, principles, problems and applications as well as some advanced topics included in the board syllabus. The topics are based from PRC Board Syllabus.
Advance Refresher Course
This is a comprehensive examination-discussion type of instruction. The reviewees are subjected to a series of examinations patterned from the board exams where actual past board examinations are included. They are given questionnaires and answer sheets and are required to use pencils in shading the correct answer. This is intended to acquaint each one to the actual test. The exam is to be discussed thoroughly right after or on the next meeting for the reviewees to evaluate their performances.
Advance Coaching Series
This is the final phase of preparation which is more or less 3 weeks in duration. This is intended to fine-tune reviewees to the much awaited board exam. This consists generally of classroom coaching notes which are to be read with the reviewers around to entertain questions personally. A parallel computer hands-on for this course is conducted at the computer rooms.
It's not only the review instructions and the credentials of the reviewers that make PRIME the best ME Review Center, but also the comprehensive exams that shape the reviewees' learning curve. PRIME's Comprehensive Exam Series are carefully planned and scheduled to optimize the reviewees time and to test their wits. These are the following:
Comprehensive Daily Exam (CDE)
This is a short 15-minute exam that is administered daily after three straight hours of lecture. How will you know that a day's lecture is absorbed in the reviewees' minds? Simple, the "CDE" provides such daily benchmark.
Comprehensive Take-Home Exam (CTE)
This type of exam extends the reviewees' learning curve beyond the bounds of the Review Center. Whether this exam is tackled alone or with friends through group studies, this exam helps promote self-confidence and guarantees a continuous form of learning from the review center to the comfort of the reviewees' homes.
Comprehensive Weekly Exam (CWE)
Each brand new week for PRIME is opened by an ice-breaker that awakens every reviewee from their deep slumber. This ice-breaker is the "CWE" and is administered every Monday of the week.
Comprehensive Semi-Monthly Exam (CSME)
Given only on the 15th and 30th day of each month, the "CSME" is a comprehensive exam designed to cover the accumulated topics discussed within the 15-day period. Results of this exam are clear benchmarks on how each student would possibly fare in the ME Licensure Exam.
Comprehensive Online Exam (COE)
At the comforts of your home or nearby internet cafe's, this exam could be taken anytime and anywhere. You don't have to travel several islands to avail of PRIME's massive knowledge base. PRIME's Comprehensive Online Exam is the undisputed portal of distributing Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics tome of knowledge across the miles!
