After teaching Civil Engineering review classes for more than two decades, a group of individuals pooled their resources together and decided to form a CE-GE review center that will be sensitive to the needs of civil and geodetic engineering graduates who plan to take the licensure examinations. In September 2005, Engr. Wilfredo Y. Andales, Engr. Ariel P. Santos, and Engr. Ananias C. Gloria Jr. formally opened REVIEW INNOVATIONS’ doors to civil and geodetic engineering graduates.
Armed with a thorough knowledge of the intricacies of the trade and fuelled by an earnest desire to provide students a better review program, the three founders of RI immediately initiated changes in the way review classes were conducted. Classrooms were equipped with overhead projectors to take full advantage of PowerPoint presentations in its lectures. To ensure that students are well prepared for the exams, RI incorporated weekly evaluation exams in its review program, a feature which eventually became a regular fare in most CE review programs. RI is proud to be the pioneer of this aspect in board examination preparation.
The efforts paid off. In its first batch (November 2005 CE Board Exam), RI was part of the success of 27 CE Board topnotchers. In the following year (November 2006 CE Board Exam), RI scored 44 topnotchers – an unprecedented feat that will stay unmatched for years to come. And so it was that in just a couple of years, Review Innovations became the favoured choice of civil and geodetic engineering graduates. To date, RI has produced 281 CE Board topnotchers in 29 exams (averaging 9.69 topnotchers per exam) including 17 first placers and 173 GE Board topnotchers in 14 exams (averaging 12.36 topnotchers per exam) including 14 first placers. Because of its growing popularity, RI now has branches in Cebu City and Davao City.
Over the years, RI continued to find ways to improve its program. Giving more Pre-Board and evaluation exams, replacing projectors with HD TV Monitors in classrooms for a better learning experience, and incorporating Take N’ Exam (an online review tool) in its program are just some of the things RI did to raise the bar of CE review to an even higher level.
The current pandemic has provided another opportunity for Review Innovations to reaffirm its lofty standing among CE review centers. Confronted with the challenge of providing quality review amid the COVID-19 threat, RI has crafted an effective online review program and has skilfully provided its students the training that they have longed for.
Undoubtedly, Review Innovations is the RIght choice.
