Review handouts/materials are essential aids and materials that are used by the reviewees in order for them to pass the Civil Engineering Board Examinations given by the Professional Regulations Commission.

Review handouts/materials are usually free/included in your Civil Engineering review center fees where review handouts/materials are used throughout the review/refresher/coaching program.

Most CE review handouts/materials were written by CE reviewers that they write the topics based on their review lecture experiences and were used in their review classes.
