Definitely worthwhile for the exam practice 😉 Benjamin M Tomkins

Worth Every Penny!

Mr. Chevy Kok has done it again. Another GREAT SolidWorks course. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is serious about learning SolidWorks and getting their CSWA. I have now gone through both of Mr. Chevy Kok’s SolidWorks courses and I have just taken the CSWA exam and I passed all because of this professor’s courses! Outstanding! I highly recommend this professor and both of his courses. You cannot beat the training that you will get from this professor. He is tops! I am so excited to have gotten my CSWA!! Amanda Osbun


This is a very good course to prepare for CSWA. The teacher (Chevy kok) have a good skill in teaching Solid Works and you can see he enjoys teaching. I am very happy. Thanks.

Excellent course, well presented

The instructor gave all the detail required to approach the CSWA exam, including how to register for and start the test. The exercises were very much similar to those that were asked in the exam. The delivery was also good, keeping the listener interested.

Well worth the money! Shyam Panamoottil
