I just failed my PA test yesterday at my second try. I passed almost all other divisions at first try, which gave me a wrong confidence. I firstly passed PCM and PJM and then I took PA at first try at the end of July and I failed. After three months study on PPD, PDD and CE and I passed them, I retook PA and I failed again with a worse score than previous one (please see attached two sores, upper is 1st try).
I feel that I understood all questions and I was "sure" that I answered at least 50 questions correctly. When I finished multiple choice part, I have 1:20 left. I double checked them and got the case studies done, finally 10 mins left. I think the case studies are easier than PPD, PDD, even CE.
What I studied:
Ballast book (carefully read thru) + practice
Sun, light and wind (roughly read thru)
Site planning and design (carefully read thru)
Amber Book videos + flashcards + practice
In order to take a break and bring something new to my brain, I scheduled LEED AP exam on Dec 2022. But talking about the 3rd try on PA, if my 2nd one has a higher score, that would be another scenario, which means my effort works. The terrible thing is that I did worse, after 3-mon study and passed other divisions. So I really have no idea where to go next. I even do not know what materials should I study. Could anybody will tell me the strategy?
