The Professional Practice (PPE) Mobile App is aiming to assist candidates to prepare for the "Engineering Law and Ethics" exam, a prerequisite for the Professional Engineering (P.Eng.) licence or any other licences that are administered by Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO). For more information on the exam, please visit http://www.peo.on.ca.
This Mobile Application is designed to significantly reduce exam preparation time by focusing on only the important definitions that have historically appeared in the past exams and/or have been frequently repeated in the materials referenced by PEO. In addition, this app provides candidates with a bank of recent and past exams to give them an edge to benchmark and test their progress during the study; all the solutions to these exams are also provided. Please note, in Ontario the Professional Practice Exam is not offered in a multiple choice format.
In this Mobile Application, two study methods are suggested: Structured and Random. In the Structured method, study materials are presented in coherence with the PEO's references, whereas, in the Random method, contents are presented in a more random fashion. The exams provided may also be studied in a sequential or in a random order.
In comparison to the latest release of The Professional Practice Examination (PPE), the current release has an identical Learning Module. The Exams Module in the PPE has been updated with a more recent set of exams.
Q. Why PPE.v1 wasn't removed from Play Store?
A. We have received requests from many of our colleagues to keep the first version of this app available to download as older exams are still relevant today. We will keep this version available as long as there are interests and downloads. We, however, will eventually remove PPE.v1 in favor of the newer version.
Q.Why PPE.v1 didn't get an update?
A. Any update to PPE.v1 will replace older exams and make them unavailable to our colleagues. This, unfortunately, defeats our original intend to keep the app available for those who are still interested in accessing and studying the older exams.
Q. Why this app needs to be online to work?
A. In addition to help us creating an extremely lightweight app (there is no static text), which doesn't require tones of resources (storage, memory, etc.) to run, it enable us to update content seamlessly and on the fly. In designing this app, we were inspired by apps like Facebook, Instagram, etc., that are excelled in providing their users with updated content based on the same principle.
