STUDENT COMMENTS ON OUR DISTANCE LEARNING PROGRAM

We wish there was room to put down everyone’s comments, but we had to limit this to just a few, besides there are just so many ways to say I PASSED! Because of our Privacy Policy we never release our Students Names:

LTS program is very well designed and covered everything necessary for the exam. The instructors and staff were knowledgeable, and professional and responded in a timely manner. Some of the remarks in the textbook and the MP3 files regarding possible exam questions were spot on and indeed these questions were asked on the exam in one way or another. The reminder/update emails and bulletin board updates regarding what happens next or deadlines approaching were also much appreciated and necessary.

I’d recommend that those who have used the textbook to study, consider taking it to the exam. It was easier for me to find a topic/rule /exception in the textbook first and then that would direct me to the corresponding 19CFR regulation/ chapter. Sometimes the textbook even spelled the answer and I didn’t even have to go to 19 CFR ( depending on the question). I also would strongly encourage people to take advantage of the MP3s.

LTS is a great program that made me feel super prepared for the exam! I started the course with virtually no customs knowledge and passed the exam first try! Their textbook, workbook, and references complement the 19CFR and USHTS and make everything easy to understand. The professors are great and easy to communicate with as well!

I chose THE DISTANCE LEARNING WITH INSTRUCTOR PROGRAM. LTS helped me to get through CBLE and I passed the exam with 85% passing score. The study material is very useful during the exam as well as giving thorough information on how to study and how to use study material.

I followed their instruction on how to study and stay on track. I finished all chapter quizzes, the mid-term exam, the final exam, as well as old exam questions up to the year 2014. This gave me so much confidence before and during the exam.

I am very thankful to Ms. Penny Perkins who was very helpful and provided detailed information if I had any questions and was easy to reach.

I can’t say enough good things about LTS’s LCB test prep course. LTS’s entire package allowed me to focus on the business of studying for the exam instead of wasting time trying to figure out how to tackle studying for the exam. From the tabbing recommendations to pacing your studying to ensure you finish the course in enough time to practice, practice, practice! This was my third attempt at the exam. This was my first attempt having used a prep course and I passed!

Thank you for putting together a wonderful course that is the Distance Learning Program! I was in a bit of a need of a career change after re-evaluating what I want from life during the pandemic so I figured acquiring the Customs Brokers License would help me pivot away from analyzing data all day and into solving problems and helping businesses. After browsing the subreddit and facebook group for the CBLE, many successful examinees stated that they used this program so I might as well take the plunge. I was able to pass the exam through a 3-4 months of intense studying! There are some classes that are solely there to help you pass the exam, but I feel like this program sets students up to be successful in the field because it really teaches you the importance of each concept, and not just where to find the answers to questions. The textbook really goes through most of the things you would need for the exam, and the practice exams and detailed answer keys definitely help in covering areas of weakness. The instructors will be there throughout the course to help you pace yourself, inform you of important dates and deadlines.. as well as barrage you with useful advice and information during the month of the exam.

I want to thank everyone at Logistics Training Systems for providing me with the necessary tools to pass my broker’s exam. If I had not signed up for your study course and received your training manuals I am pretty sure that I would not have passed my exam. Your textbook, reference book, and cheat sheets saved me so much time during the exam, and played a fundamental part of being able to pass. If anyone is thinking about taking the brokers exam, I would highly recommend using Logistics Training Systems. Their study materials are so helpful, and the writing in the textbook is so easy to understand, so all you have to do is follow their instructions and do the reading and you will be ready to ace that exam!! And, a special thanks to Joan for all of the encouraging emails and reminders that she sends that helped me stay on track and be prepared for each milestone. I could not have done this without everyone at Logistics Training Systems!!

Thank you for your help, I passed the  April exam. Because I finally learned how to find the right answer for the Tariff Schedule questions, and I finished all of the past exam questions. The reason I think that I passed, it was  because I circled the ones  that I done wrong from the past exams, and redo  them again a week before the exam.

I passed this exam on my first try. I appreciated that I was able to communicate with the instructor and other students taking the same course and received feedback almost instantly. This made having a study plan seem more manageable and I never felt like I was doing this on my own, despite this being an online course. The textbook, reference material, and video lessons made navigating the CFR and HTSUS seem less intimidating. Having the suggestions for tabbing the HTSUS and CFR were a huge help and gave me a better sense of organization for the exam. I especially appreciated that the answers for the HTS workbook questions contained detailed explanations, making the difficult task of classification less scary.

I liked the self-pace of this program, it gave me the flexibility to study when it was best for me. I also liked to be able to reach out to a professor when something was not clear. I found the mid term and the final exam challenging and when I started doing the previous exam questions, in the workbook, which were by focus area, that’s what really helped me get better prepared for the exam.

This program is designed to help you learn more about the Customs Broker exam. Info is easy to understand. The MP3s are excellent. Instructors are awesome with feedback. This course is awesome!!  LTS is the reason I passed the 1st time!!  Follow the syllabus as given!! You can not go wrong!!

I thought that the Logistics Training Systems materials were exactly what I needed to pass the exam.  They provided an excellent cross reference table, and all of the notes referenced the corresponding regulation number.  I passed the exam because I put in the time to learn the material and Logistics Training Systems provided me with all of the reference materials needed to be able to locate the exam answers as quickly as possible.

I received my Customs letter and I passed!  I got a 78.75% , so excited for what is to come, and I can’t say enough good things about Logistics Training Systems. With so many options out there I am so happy I selected Logistics Training Systems because all the material was well organized and explained. At the time of the exam all the concepts just flowed back into my brain. I appreciate all the tips and advises that you all provided during the time of studying..

I passed!  I work primarily in Export and only had basic knowledge of Import when I started preparing for the exam.  Your program was so thorough and the exam resources were so helpful.  I have already sent a referral to a colleague!  Thank you for everything!!

Somebody pinch me!  I passed!
It has taken four years (I took a year off due to frustration; DON’T DO THAT) and testing six times.  The goal outweighs the struggle! I used another training system through my first four testing’s resulting in a best score of 70.  This training system was obviously not getting me there.  I researched who else was out there to get to my goal.  I noted that I had seen Logistics Training Systems materials at previous exams.  Their training packages looked a lot more comprehensive…..and they were.  MY weakness was classification.  I found the comprehensive analysis on previous test questions to help me understand the mistakes I made was most helpful.  I am positive this tool pushed me over the hump!
All materials provided were instrumental in passing the CHB Exam!

I would like to thank the staff at LTS for the guidance and encouragement that allowed me to pass the US Customs Broker exam on the first attempt.  I did spend countless hours studying and used (as well as needed!) all the resouces provided by LTS durning the exam.  I believe the training and resources provided by LTS made the difference between passing and not passing the exam.  I would not hesitate to recommend LTS to anyone who wants to be truely prepared for this difficult exam.

Practice questions are taken from actual exams.  The bonus is a thorough analysis of those questions, that analysis will guide you over the top so that you can understand the concepts. Everything starts to click , and you can recognize the similar questions slightly rephrased on other exams.

The training contains everything you need in order to pass this test. If you have the discipline to study almost everyday, and follow their course outline  for about 3-4 months before the test you will pass. I actually didn’t do that, I crammed about half the study course the last week, and barely passed the exam. I do not recommend it.

I passed the exam, as a first time test taker. I started a bit late, worked very hard, and my family made a lot of sacrifices, now it all paid off. I really appreciate all the teaching and mentoring from Penny, Joan and LTS training system, all crucial in helping me over the hump.
A big, heart-felt “Thank You!”

I received my letter from Customs the weekend and I passed with an 85%.  Thanks for all your support and encouragement over the past 7 months.  I think your course was excellent.  There’s no way I would have been able to pass without taking it.  I will recommend this course to everyone who shows interest in taking the exam!!

I just received the result. I got 75%. I am so thankful for everything that you guys did for us.. You didn’t just “drop us like a hot potato” when we finished your course. I am extremely grateful.. May your tribe increase..you deserve an applause. great follow up, good job guys…

I passed with a 91.25%. I am very excited and I must say that your program, references and the videos were my charms during the exam. Thanks to you and your team for putting this program together.

I wanted to inform you that I have passed the customs broker exam on my first try with a 78.75%.  Thank you so much to everyone at LTS for all your help and support these past 6 months.  Everyone went above and beyond to help me, especially regarding my living situation in England.  I would not have passed without the support of the instructors and the program.  Thank you so much because I cannot imagine having to take this thing again!  Once is more than enough!

There is no way that I would’ve passed this exam without the help of LTS. The study program helped me to stay on task, their personnel was always available when I had questions or to provide feedback, and they were essential in test preparation during the last month. Interesting enough, ¾ of the people that took the exam in the same location as I did brought study materials from LTS.

I had taken and failed the exam once before using a different study program’s materials and found LTS’ study program to be the difference maker. While the other course primarily was the test reference materials and practice questions, LTS was the complete package. The textbook was, in my opinion, the way the 19CFR should have been written. Everything was presented neatly, bulleted for readability, and explained in easy to understand portions. The quizzes and practice test questions helped me to reinforce the material studied. Having an instructor also helps alot for when I needed a topic explained further. The videos really helped for review as the regulations are quite boring to read word for word. I also want to thank Peter Moyer for his webinars. I’m glad that the course test/review questions not only gave the answer, but also explained HOW the answer was reached. LTS’ analysis of the previous test questions was essential in my understanding of why I answered questions wrong.

I’m thrilled that I passed and I owe it all to LTS’ study program.

I enjoyed the video lectures. What I liked most was the timing. It was nice to do a quick review of everything that we had already (or at least should have) studied and helped to keep it fresh on the brain. I also had been struggling on classification at first until your classification video pointed out that to me that I sometimes ventured to “anorak land”. On the exam it appears that I only missed 2 classification questions out of 28. It was also good to hear a “real person” talk about the material and the exam. Now that this is over, I’m wondering about what to do with all of my free time, now that I have passed.

It’s official. I learned today via mail that I passed the Customs Broker Exam! Your course made it possible. Your course helps the student focus on the areas of most importance. It also teaches you in plain English versus legal ease. The books, practice exams, online presentations, videos, and MP3 audios all help to learn and memorize what is most important to pass. Also, the personal attention, motivational emails, and when needed, telephone assistance add to the overall rich learning experience. I compared other courses before signing up and felt you had the most content and overall best value. After the exam I compared your draft answers with 2 other exam companies and yours was right on the money, whereas the other two had many incorrect answers. This clearly proves that your team is the most knowledgeable, and thus, who better to learn from. Kudos to everyone at Logistics Training!!

I have to tell you that your material is sooooo much better than Boskage. Lots more explanations, LOVE the videos, and the CDs are great. Things that I still couldn’t understand the first and second time with the BOSKAGE material, I can see clearly now (the rain is gone..ha ha!) with your material. The visuals on your videos and the textbook are so helpful.

I am glad to inform you that I passed the exam, and will apply to the custom broker license soon. Many co-workers and our customers are asking me about how I studied and passed the exam, so I told many of them about your program.

I am naturalized US citizen, and my native tongue is Japanese. Thus, many of them were very surprised about my success. To be honest, I translated every single sentence into Japanese, and wrote them down all over your textbook. I think my success proved that your textbook is very organized and understandable even for the foreigners like me. I became US citizen just last year at my age of 43.

Thank you very much for all your support. I am happy to recommend your program to everybody with full confidence.

Thank you and the LTS group for the excellent curriculum including the textbook and evaluations/explanations of exam answers. Additionally, your individual attention to my sometimes inane questions really helped. I am certain that I would not have passed the exam if I had not used your study course.

I was fortunate to pass the exam on my first attempt. I took your course for the October exam, but did not take the exam because my husband became a hospice patient with terminal cancer at the end of September and there was no way I could travel to Tampa to take the exam. (I called and left a message with CBP the Friday before the exam that I would not be present to take the exam, and they graciously refunded my exam fee.) SO, I started studying again in January with the appropriate April LTS exam materials – and voila!

I have worked for a broker for a little over 2 years, but before that knew nothing about brokerage…but once I started working for a broker, I knew I wanted to obtain my license. I took the exam after studying with Logistics, and passed (first try). I know I wouldn’t have been able to do this without Logistics! The course really broke down each and every section into words which I understood (much of the CFR is really hard to understand). Not only did they make it understandable, but they provide helpful tips of what to tab, where to find information etc.. On top of all that, I had Penny who I could email any question to, and she would email me my quiz answers with helpful tips for studying, as well as answer every question. I have taken many online courses and Logistics is definitely the most user friendly! Thank you so much Logistics for helping me to achieve what I set out to do, couldn’t have done it without you!

THANK YOU! I passed, not bad for a first timer…..

I really want you to know that there is no way I would have passed this test if it wasn’t for LogisticsTS.

You really went beyond any expectations to make sure we are ready for this test. I have no experience in Customs or cargo, so all of the Customs Broker material was new to me. But the course you offer is excellent, the material is easy to understand, and the previous tests analysis provided are crucial. I took all practice tests, I don’t think I would have passed if I didn’t.

Thanks again, I can’t say enough good things about you.

I wanted to let you know that I passed the Customs Broker test after taking it four times over a three year period. I had purchased study materials from other companies, but I was finally successful with your system.

My husband is the one that located your training program on the web, and he gave me all of the support I needed to “go for it” in addition to the money to pay for the training program — which by the way, I feel was quite reasonable!

The study materials were everything – taking you to what you needed to learn and where to go. I truly believe that even individuals working for a broker and doing this work on a day to day basis would have a difficult time studying and knowing the areas that they needed to actually learn in order to take and pass the test — Your program gives all individuals no matter their experience or expertise the ground work and foundation to actually learn and pass these difficult tests.

Since I do not perform import work, and only knew it from a carrier’s standpoint, I am living proof that your program works!!!!!!! Without it (and of course my 2 months of studying it), I would not have passed – I would have been the larger 90% of the applicants taking the exam that would be looking at taking it again in April.

I highly recommend Logistics Training to anyone seriously considering the CHB license test!!! Thank you!

Thanks to all the staff at Logistics Training Systems, the training materials were top notch! I found the CD to be a great tool for listening while driving and the online tools were easy to follow and explained everything in great detail.

I would like to thank everyone at Logistics Training Systems for all of the assistance they gave me over the past five months this course definitely gave me a leg up for the CHB exam between the workbook, textbook and all of the online resources. The course focuses you on the important information, you told me exactly what I had to do to pass the test. I work in brokerage but doubt I could have passed the exam the first time without you guys. Thanks again.

I apologize for such a late response; however, I’d like to inform you that I PASSED!!!. It was sooo stressful waiting for the results, but it was well worth it knowing now that I passed and could not have done so without the assistance and material from tutorial program. Thank you for your updates in regards to the delay of the notification from CBP.

I enjoyed both your teaching materials and your instructor. She is very detail-oriented, not only giving me the correct answer, but also explaining why. I feel so lucky that I made such a smart decision to go with your school. As I told you, I had previously purchased materials from a competitor and paid $750 for their tapes and study guide. I did not find them very useful. Their study guide is as hard as CFR 19 to understand, while your textbook made everything so easy. All of your materials are well-prepared and well organized as well. In a word, your materials made learning easy for me. I especially liked the students corner with the on line quiz for each chapter. Thank you again.

The best of such courses I have ever seen before. I was greatly impressed with the systems approach and various methods of study-you can even study in a traffic jam! If you have done all of the workbook, success will be inevitable. I also want to mention my instructor, she helped me very much!

I would like to thank you and all the people with Logistics as I really did not have very much experience with imports and customs before I took your course.

I passed the exam!! I think your training course enabled me to get “the big picture” as well as become more familiar with the exam materials. During the exam I used my time wisely and I was able to look up every question. This was much improved over my first time taking the exam in October 2005. I felt more confident in myself and my ability to navigate through the materials. I have recommended your course to everyone who asks “how did you do it?”

KJ

I’m certain that I would not have passed if I had not taken your course. There were questions that I could answer without looking up, and many that I knew exactly where to look to get or confirm the answers. This was the first exam I finished early so that I could go back and check some of the more difficult questions. I also attribute this to your course, which helped me understand how to allocate time for the questions so that I wouldn’t get into the rushed situation I had in the previous 2 exams I had taken, where I had to rush through the final questions, making guesses instead of having time to look up answers. I made use of some of your charts, such as the forms list. I had made my own list of forms for the prior tests, but yours had the CFR cross references, which came in handy. Also the time frames were helpful.

Please let my instructor know about my good results and thank her for me. I really appreciated her quick responses to my questions.

I would definitely recommend your course to anyone wanting to pass the Customs Broker exam. I found your textbook to be very comprehensive, well-organized, and easy to understand. It was great to have all of the directives provided in the workbook. The analysis of prior exam questions was extremely helpful, as were the charts you provided.

Thanks again!
