    Hi Carolina, 

    Both Darguin and I have posted pretty thorough write-ups about our study strategies and testing experiences. Just look back through our posts and I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for!

    What study material did you use? I have been looking at the material put out by Ballast so far and would like to know if there are any other resources that were helpful to you all who have passed!

    I am about to take this exam in a couple of weeks!

    Katherine -- I'm with you on taking the exam shortly.

    I believe that Daniel S. (who passed PcM) and some others focused primarily on the AHPP and the contracts...(always the contracts!).  

    Some have sadi that studying the old 4.0 CDS materials is a great base for 5.0 PcM studying.

    Personally, I'm going the AHPP route.  Slugging through a lot of pages, however I'm actually enjoying the AHPP.  
    Also, I've been sort of uncomfortable with what the content might include for the calcs on utilization rates, firm profitability, etc., so 've included some online additional research.  

    Good luck!

    Whoever wants to pass I would say read the handbook of prof. practice. It has it all and watch some of the videos of Kevin Griendling on Plural Sight. That is all I did in one week of studying.

    I agree, the AHPP is the bible for PcM. The Schiff Hardin lectures are also helpful.

    As far as the profit/loss statements are concerned what really made me understand the stuff was going through the example on page 424. Yes, you will need to know this!

    I would also not disregard BIM.

    Good luck!
