Passed the ASP! The review course played a significant role in this achievement. My advice is to review all the lecture recordings as a part of your study schedule, there was information which was helpful that I missed during the live sessions. Level Up......Next mission will be the CSP. Thank you , Patrick Lee, for the exemplary synchronous training and Jenny for the great assistance rendered at the on-set.

Thank you for your ASP/CSP class this last fall. I am happy to say I passed both the ASP and the CSP Exams. It was nice having the class twice a week to stay focused on the prize. You did a great job.

Passed the CSP exam today! I passed the CSP exam today after passing the ASP exam in January (two weeks after my ASP-CSP course ended). This was the earliest I could get scheduled at the exam center. As Russ advised, I highly recommend taking the CSP as quickly as you can after taking the ASP. I continued reviewing my course materials, taking exams/quizzes on the Bowen EHS site, and using the BCSP CSP Pocket Prep app. The CSP had much less math. The math it had was pretty much okay if you read it carefully but there were a couple that I had to make educated guesses - ha ha. As other exam takers have stated, the CSP exam is much more focused on scenarios and the appropriate recommendations based on the said scenario. There was *a lot* of reading, so make sure that you read everything (question and answer options) carefully. Thank you so much, Russ, for preparing me so thoroughly for both of these great accomplishments. I would not have been this successful without your course!

Passed the ASP today! The review course was very helpful, I think the most helpful advice I can give is to go over as many practice quizzes you can. I completed 15 practice quizzes and that prepared me very well. On to the CSP!! Thanks Patrick Lee for the great course!

Thanks in large part to the Bowen ASP-CSP course, I passed my CSP exam after passing the ASP just 2 weeks earlier! I agree with Russ on his advice to take the CSP as soon as possible after passing the ASP. The CSP was definitely more difficult as it was more conceptual and applied in nature, requiring one to draw on real-life experience and knowledge in addition to knowing the fundamentals. In addition to reviewing the ASP-CSP course materials, the Brauer book and the Yates book were also good references that helped me prepare for both exams. Good luck to all!

Passed the CSP exam and now I can breathe a huge sigh of relief! While it was extremely challenging, I felt well-prepared thanks to the ASP-CSP Online review course. Thank you to Russell Bowen and Patrick Lee! The course helped immensely in preparing for the CSP.

To all preparing for the can do this! Passed the CSP exam just recently. I have Bowen to thank for the preparation on many levels. My initial introduction was with Mike Eden ASP/CSP Review in winter of 2015 (passed the ASP in 2016) and with Will in Spring of 2018 for CSP review. Many thanks, Mike and Will! Bowen helped me focus on and retain concepts. Math has never been my strong suit and Bowen prepared me enough to pass. I'm an older Safety professional and should have had these certifications under my belt long ago, family, coaching sports with and w/o my kids, running a consulting business (and procrastination) were all good excuses. Being able to review the Bowen materials when I had made up my mind that I was going to take the test helped greatly with both tests. In terms of info on the test....the recent previous advice of others on the Bowen EHS forums will serve you well. I also prepared with the BCSP self-assessments. I had an older version from November of 2014 and the present self-assessment offering were both worth reviewing. Thanks again, Russ, Mike and Will.

I took the CSP exam and passed. Wanted to thank Russ and his team for their assistance. After many years in the field, it was interesting to learn more broadly the areas of EHS, which was my intent besides the credential itself. Although for the week prior I was not liking it too much, I just wanted to get it over with, ha. I had a couple of questions exactly from this course. There were very detailed questions about the ear, like someone else mentioned. Stuff that an ear doctor would study I imagine. There is a chance these are pilot questions for an upcoming specialty cert. on hearing conservation or something similar; due to the current + upcoming generations expected prevalence of hearing loss due to technology, etc. Just my opinion. Thanks all and good luck.

I passed the ASP this and I couldn't think Pat and Russ enough for the help and support throughout the course and study prep. This was my 3rd time taking the exam (once before the prep course and another time in the middle of the prep course). I would recommend finishing the prep course all the way through before taking the exam, as I felt fully prepared today. Now on to the CSP. Thank again Pat and Russ!

I am so excited to share that I passed the ASP today on my first try! I finished the ASP-CSP Prep Course in December 2018. I was super nervous but found that the course had me completely ready. As I needed help with math and calculations, I did lots of practice in those areas. I used the Bowen EHS online quizzes and practice tests to prepare along with my notes from the course. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was not as much math as I expected. There were a couple of tricky ones (ideal gas law is my eternal struggle) but nothing I freaked out about. I followed Russ's strategy for test taking and had plenty of time. I even finished about 20 minutes early because I was afraid that I would overthink some of the questions that I probably answered correctly the first time through. :) Thank you, Russ, for such a great course! Now on to the CSP!

Passed CSP exam and very thankful to my employer paying for ASP/CSP Bowen online review course and to Bowen EHS for providing free weekly ASP/CSP practice questions. As previously mentioned, there was less math, but, a lot of Safety Management scenarios, BCSP Ethics questions, and a few occupational health questions. Good luck to all taking exams. It's a lot of studying/preparation, but, it's worth it.

Just took my CSP and I passed! Thank you to Bowen, the course was definitely helpful in preparing me for the test. I found on my test, there was significantly less math than I expected, and more safety management and system safety-based questions. Also be sure to know and understand the BCSP Code of Ethics. Good luck to everyone else who still has to take the exam!
