Wooowhoo! Passed the ASP in August and the CSP today! Thanks for the great review/prep course. Not sure I would have had the confidence to attempt the tests without it.

I passed the ASP today. Thank you to the Bowen team especially to Russ & Nicole - immense thank you. I spent the last 8 months studying on my own using the Yates & Brauer books. I downloaded all of the Bowen practice questions and practiced them all at least twice or more. I then registered for your ASP prep class and that helped tremendously as well a purchased the BCSP ASP Self Assessment. For the exam, I will say I did utilize the full 5 hours allotted. Most of the equations were provided and I followed your advice to skip all the math and return to them. I'm so relieved this part is done and will commence prep for the CSP hopefully for January. Your prep course was excellent and I couldn't have done it without your help. Thank you.

Passed the ASP Today! Pearson didn't give me a score other than "Result: PASS". But I'm happy with that! Of the questions I knew the answer to: 50% came from Brauer (The text you recommended), 30% came from your class (Every math question I answered was a direct result of your class) and 20% from DataChem. There were a few questions I don't remember ever seeing any information on. Your class served as the foundation and touchstone for my study program and I highly recommend it for anyone. Thanks!

Passed the CSP!!!  The Bowen team was instrumental in providing the needed information in a user-friendly format that got me passed the big test. I only studied the Bowen material and it was all I needed! Worth every cent! Thanks Mike and Russ for a great tool.

I passed my CSP! I passed my ASP around a year and a half ago after completing the ASP/CSP course. At the time I had a lot going on in life with my first little one at home and did not take my CSP right away like originally planned. I decided that what would be best for me was to complete the ASP/ CSP course again starting last February. As busy as my life has been I needed the structure of the class to keep me focused and moving in the right direction. I do not know if I got as much out of it the second time around as the first obviously but it helped me focus and gave me study structure. It also provided me with a group of other people working towards a similar goal which helped keep me motivated and moving forward toward the CSP. The test itself I found to be a little frustrating with %90 of the questions asking for what is the BEST answer and giving four options saying almost the exact same thing just worded slightly different. My best advice is to eliminate one of them if you can and then go with your gut on the remaining. I am not a math person at all but was actually relieved when a math question would come up because at least there is a definite answer and I would know if I got right or wrong. If I were to study for it again I would focus much more attention on the relationships between the Safety director, front-line supervisors and management. I briefly studied those areas but it was a lot more in-depth than expected. There were many questions related to training, defining responsibilities and establishing accountability for line supervisors. Thank you, Mike and Bowen, for all the help both the first and the second time I took the class and best of luck to everyone taking the test in the future.

Passed my ASP-Sept and CSP!! I am so happy I passed both portions. The money spent on this program was well worth it. I found that making flashcards really helped me. I made over 200 flashcards to prepare for the exam.Bowen EHS is definitely on my radar to help me prepare for my CIH but for now, I am taking a break.

Bowen was very important in helping me gain my ASP in July of 2016 and my CSP in April of this year.

Good afternoon Russ! I am writing to let you know that I just sat for the CSP exam and passed the test!! I am so excited to share the news with you!!!  It was through all your detailed class preparation and dedication to the program that I was able to successfully complete the exam! I had attended your on line ASP class in March and sat for the ASP in early June.  I was planning to wait to take your CSP class as well and wanted to complete the CSP by the end of the year.  I got antsy and couldn’t wait any longer!  I studied your material and the reference information you had recommended during our class.  I took a deep breath this morning and went in with my fingers crossed! I am so relieved to have passed! It is all because of your wonderful prep class and dedication to us as students! Thanks for everything!  Mark me down as a successful client!

I passed the ASP9 yesterday, I wasn't sure if I was ready but I went forward and took the exam. Once I sat for the exam the questions felt familiar and I grew confident during the exam. I finished the exam an hour early and passed, I felt the exam was easier than I was expecting. Logic and deduction will go along the way with questions you may not have a good grasp of. I studied the Bowen ASP-CSP material via the recordings, not the live classes, I used the Bowen quiz app a lot, I also used the ASP9 Practice from BCSP. I bought the book everyone mentioned but I honestly only flipped through it once.  What I did was watch the ASP-CSP lectures in order of easiest material to the hardest (what I felt for me) for a week straight, 2 classes a day, I'd skip through parts I was comfortable with. (I did not use all the lectures.) While I did this, I would take the ASP-CSP Bowen quiz game constantly just in moments of free time. Questions types that came up repeatedly that I was unfamiliar with I would make note of. I would then look up how to solve them(mostly math) using the Bowen work book to find the corresponding lecture. If I thought something was too complicated I'd reference YouTube videos for solutions to various math problems. Some videos I found show additional methods some I found easier to come up with the answers. I took 1 week off from work. I studied Sunday - Friday 4-6hrs a day, did my math review on Friday and completed the ASP9 prep on Friday and took the exam Saturday. PS don't think you can cram everything in a week, I have a very good ability and track record of it, so much so I was confident that is sufficient time for me.

I passed the CSP today. Couldn't have done it without the framework for study provided by the Bowen ACSP course. My path forward for studying once I committed to the ASP and CSP starting this past May, was to take the Bowen course and creating my own flash cards along the way along with the practice problems and Bowen app. This prepared me for the ASP. I broke down and bought the CSP blueprint and the Brauer book and continued reviewing my flash cards, prepping me for the CSP. Thank you to the instructors and the Bowen program for your help.

I passed my CSP today (passed my ASP 2 weeks ago)! Thank you SO much to everyone @ Bowen and all of my fellow ASP/CSP "preppers"! The study sessions, emails, quizzes and countless hours on the app definitely helped prepare for both exams.

Thank you to Mike, Will, and Rick for your well-structured course. I couldn't have passed this without your guidance and support. Now if only the darned BCSP website would update with my ASP certification so I can finish signing up for the CSP! Oh well. Seeing that "PASS" on my exam score report will suffice (for now).
