After much studying to prepare myself to the ACTAR test, I attended the Factualdiagrams.com ACTAR prep class in California.
The instructors gave me the skills to concentrate all my efforts to get the "Reading Key" (Italian phrase which means, to ?open? the understanding of something) of an ACTAR test examination session. The training was good and the instructors were professional and friendly. Now I'm one of the few ACTAR accredited individuals in Europe...and proud of that!
I attended the FactualDiagrams.com ACTAR Exam Prep Class in California. The instructors used a variety of techniques to prepare us, including tips and strategies for each portion of the exam. I left the class with a better understanding of what to expect in the exam. I sat for the exam in October of 2010 and passed both portions of the exam on my first attempt. I believe that the prep class was an important part of my success.

I attended the Factualdiagrams.com prep class in California. In addition to having a wealth of knowledge in the field of Accident Reconstruction, the instructors provided me with the confidence and the tools to succeed. One of the best parts about this class is building confidence by taking a two part prep-test, much like the ACTAR exam. I would strongly suggest taking this class if you are serious about passing the ACTAR exam.

I attended the FactualDiagrams.com ACTAR Exam Prep Course. The highly educated instructors were instrumental in my passing the examination on my first attempt. The course had a brief review of reconstruction theories and exercises. It also included practice examinations which lead me toward an understanding of what to expect and what topics or areas I should base my own guided study in. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who plans on taking the ACTAR examination.

I attended the FactualDiagrams.com ACTAR prep course. The instructors were extremely knowledgeable in all areas of accident reconstruction, and the ACTAR exam process. They assisted me by providing every skill and tool I needed to not only pass the exam my first time taking it, but take all the mystery out of what to expect. I went into the exam knowing I had the best possible chance of passing. For anyone who wants dedicated, knowledgeable instructors who won't stop after class until they know you have all of your questions answered, then take this course. Both instructors have taught me in past courses and I will continue to come back.

If you are even considering taking the ACTAR exam you are without a doubt a knowledgeable and skilled accident investigator.I have a solid background in math and physics from college.I also have been involved in collision investigation for 6 years.This course was the reason I passed the exam.The exposure to the format and type of questions that will be encountered during the written portion of the exam is crucial.You will also be provided with quality reconstructions to complete that are similar to what will be encountered during the exam.Do not waste your valuable time and money taking the ACTAR exam without completing the preparation course offered by FactualDiagrams.com.

I would highly recommend this class for anyone considering the ACTAR exam.There are several aspects of the class I found vital to my success on the test.Like many others working in the field of reconstruction, I became accustomed to using computer software for angle determination, pre/post impact measurements and the convenience of scaled vehicles.Going back to a step-by-step hand drawn reconstruction was a daunting task.The skill review and strategy taught by Kent eliminated the anxiety from the test.His simple time management task oriented approach left me with plenty of double check time at the end of the Practical portion.As a police officer and often victim of the “plug and chug” methodology so often taught to police officers, I appreciated the simple physics approach to the unique questions often encountered on the Theory portion of the exam. Thanks for all your help and support during the class.
