The NCEES website ( https://ncees.org/exams/fs/ ) shows that for the period from July – December, 2017, without taking our seminars into consideration, 287 First-Time Takers took the NCEES FS (“SIT”) Exam, and 46% Failed. For that same period, 179 Repeat Takers took the NCEES FS (“SIT”) Exam and 75% Failed. For the PS Exam, from July – December, 2017, only 64% of the 252 First-Time examinees passed the PS Exam and 28% of the 82 Repeat Takers Failed.

Many of the students who attend our seminars have taken the exams multiple times, some as many as five times, and failed each time before coming to us,” expressed owner, instructor and founder of LSS Seminars, Ted Madson. He continued, saying “It never ceases to amaze me how many of them take our seminars are promptly pass the exam.”

We provide candidates with several handy materials upon enrolling in our seminars. The FS (“SIT”) examination prep includes the HP35s calculator pre-programmed with the LSS Miracle Software, ver 2.7.C., the Mathematics of Land Surveying textbook, and The Elementary Questions on Real Property Boundary Law textbook and Answer book. The Professional Exam includes the above items, plus Elementary Surveying Law lectures as an MP3/CD study course. .

** A point of information: Geomatics (“Land Surveying”) Graduates have not been taught much of the information contained in our NCEES FS (“SIT”) Exam Prep Seminar. If you are among one of the hundreds who are planning to take the NCEES FS Exam or one who has not been able to pass the NCEES FS (“SIT”) Exam up until now we encourage you to attend this important Seminar. Don’t worry about being embarrassed at the Seminar: Our classes are geared to train everyone in the class!
