Hi Professor Boardway,

I passed my CSE Exam… Thank you very much for your help.

Mike;

Your information and problem examples where right on target!  

In the graphic section I think I read too much on the light levels on the program and may have not cleared the section.  But I felt good about the preparation your study guides and the test itself.
So wether I passed or not I felt the test was fair.
Will try to catch up tomorrow by phone.
Thank you!

Hello Michael,

Hope this email finds you well.  I passed Building Systems a couple weeks ago, so I’m on to my final one (Structures).  Thank you for all your help on BS!     I would like to work with you on my preparation for Structures as well.      Talk to you soon.

Thanks again for your help!

Professor Boardway,

I just wanted to let you know that I passed the Structures Exam and I am now a licensed Architect.  I appreciated your help and I will recommend you to my friends who are also in the process of taking their exams.

Best of luck in all of your endeavors,          Victor  – Florida

“I can recommend The Procrastinators Package from Prof Boardway. He’ll get you on a schedule and down the road to PASS. His practical knowledge is invaluable along with his extensive experience with test content. There’s lots of chatter on-line regarding what is or is not acceptable for Graphic Solutions. His feedback and insights on Graphic methodology  and application are conservative and worthwhile. I’ve passed 4 in a row with one retake remaining. I believe Prof Boardway’s assistance has made the difference for me.”     9/30/14

Dear Professor Boardway, I took your seminar sometime ago when the last CSE Oral Test was still up and running, and i finally got my California License this summer. Although i didn’t pass for the oral and had to take the written format test to really pass the exam i learned a lot from your seminar not just for the exam but also how to present the things orally in convincing way. so i wanted to thank you for the valuable teaching.Thanks.

Michael, wanted you to know that I passed my CSE exam at last. Thanks for your help. In my case the studying of materials not as valuable as how to approach the reading and answering of questions. I  had minimal time for part one , plenty of time in part two. Went back and read all of part two questions a second time.   Drawings were a separate hard copy hand out 11 x 17. I screwed up and started computer login as soon as I sat down. Which starts the clock running. I had drawings in my hand and should have looked at them for a while before starting computer login. Would have been free time and I needed it.  After you finish part one you can’t go back to it. Also I took a bathroom break in last 5 min of part one , on the clock. Should have waited until Part two as it was a lot less rushed. I had time in part two to review all 100 answers , go to the bathroom again and still leave ten minutes early.    CAMERON HYDE, AIA     President S O D E R S T R O M    A R C H I T E C T S,  Ltd.           –        Portland, Oregon

Hi Professor Boardway,
Thanks for all of your help. Over the weekend, I received word that I passed the exam and am thrilled to have done so!!!  In any case, I won’t need to keep up with your exam seminars so could I please be taken off that circulation list? If, on the other hand, there are professional continuing education seminars that you offer, please feel free to let me know. Thanks so much and wishing you continued success… –   Arlene

Hi Michael,
Just wanted to let you know that my Nov 15th Exam was a success and I am finally done with all these exams.  Though I only took your seminars, I want to credit you with putting the material in context and giving structure to all the facts that I had been pouring over.  Thanks again for your insight.     Good luck with your courses in the future.

(After passing the exam – Yenny writes);
Boardway’s seminars were definitely very helpful based on his many years of experience and knowledge, particularly in the categories of “Management and Design” and “Construction”. Beyond that, the tips that he gave on the way to approach the questions and the methodology behind presenting the answers were extremely useful. The mock exam sessions, which were a part of the workshops, not only refined the way candidates were to present their answers but, more importantly, built a sense of confidence. However, I understand that he will continue on conducting seminars for candidates.    Yenny Ng

Mr. Boardway,
I passed, first time. How well did the rest of the group do? I went way to deep in my studies, your seminar grounded me. You can take me off your email list now. I would recommend you. You are professional and well presented.     Thank you.   Neil Looney

Dear Michael,
I received my letter from the Board,  for my successful completion of the Exams.  All of my colleagues, who recommended and had taken your seminar, passed on the first try and I did not want to be the one who altered the tradition here.  I wanted to say, that your seminar was extremely helpful in preparing me for the exam.  There was a mammoth of information to cover and retain, but you really helped to streamline the process.  I have recommended you to a colleague who decided not to take your seminar, and is now faced with the new format and having to study again. Also, thank you again for sending the information when I was unable to attend one of the scheduled seminars.       Cordially,     Cesar Quinones

Hi Michael,
I am writing to let you know that I PASSED my exam!!  I want to thank you for your class and help, especially the 3 private tutoring sessions.  The tele-seminar recording on both categories and general overview were also very helpful in directing me how to answer the questions and what to expect on the day of the exam.    Thank you very much again.    Jensen Wu

Professor,
I just want to write you this email to thank you for all your help. Without you I could not have passed my  Exam. You made me aware of the areas that I needed to focus on. I went home and used your advice to perfect my presentation and commitment and it worked. I still can’t believe I’m an Architect now. Without you this wouldn’t be possible. To everyone out there who is thinking about utilizing Professor Boardway’s expertise, please do so. The money paid is a small price compared to the knowledge and insight gained!     Your the best Professor!     Steven Torres  –  Stockton,  Calif.
