PPI has now become the go-to company in preparation materials and courses for the PE exam. So today, you’ll get “insider” information directly from Jenny Sligh, PPI’s Senior Manager of Programs and the woman in charge of all its prep materials to help you pass your PE exam on your first try.

As all NCEES licensure exams transition to CBT, getting the right instruction and study materials can really give you a leg up. Jenny lays out PPI’s efforts to adapt its resources to match the new exam and explains that many levels on which PPI can help you get your license, no matter your budget. Plus, they offer a Passing Guarantee you can take huge advantage of!

Elaborating on her 10 years at PPI, she got to know a lot of expert course instructors and successful test takers. And today, she also lists some of the little-known, non-technical aspects of the PE exam most examinees miss — and end up not passing because of it.

Jenny has worked for PPI for 10 years. She is the Senior Manager of Programs, responsible for the sales and operations of exam prep courses, corporate programs, and university programs. Prior to PPI, Jenny worked for various associations in the professional development space. She has a BA in Public Relations and Advertising from Chapman University. Jenny currently resides in Columbus, Ohio with her husband, Justin, and 5-year-old son, Lincoln, and she sings in an a cappella group.
