REG Review’s Winter 2011 Review Courses for the ASBOG Geology Licensing Exams

REG REVIEW’s approach is to give you the focus and direction needed to appropriately study for the exams.  The emphasis of the topics in the course is based on the emphasis on the exams.  We cover the approach of the exam and highlight the types of information you would need for exam level questions.  For specific information on our course content and study materials please visit our website at

REG REVIEW, Inc. has been teaching these courses in California since 1985.  In March 2000, we began to direct our teaching towards the ASBOG® geology  licensing exam.  The courses are taught by Patti Sutch, California PG 3949, CEG1641, and CHG 25, Lisa Dirth, California PG 3951, CEG 1240, and North Carolina RG 1627 (by ASBOG exam), and Elisabeth Ervin-Blankenheim, Pennsylvania PG 4595 and past student of REG REVIEW. 

REG REVIEW, Inc students typically have a pass rate that is 20% to 25% higher then the National average.  Our success rate has ranged from 85% to 99% on both exams since we began teaching to the ASBOG®exam. The National pass rate during the same time was 58% to 55% for the FG and 74% to 70% for the PG.  With the current state of the economy, can you afford not to pass the exam the first time you take it?

Who should take this class?  Anyone who feels they need help getting the focus and direction needed to be able to streamline their studying process to adequately address the topics covered by the exam.
