    I have been studying for the PcM and here is the link to a blog I made to organize my materials. https://arestudynotes.blogspot.com/ There are links there to a Google Drive with what I've found.  It includes notes I took while reading the AHHP.  Also AIA documents and the Schiff Hardin lectures.  It is just the way I have organized things so I can get at them from any device.  Hope it might help.

    Hey guys, as promised last week, I have finally gotten around to getting my notes organized and exported from the digital copy of the AHPP to my google drive account. These are notes that I took from the Handbook while reading through and what I thought was relevant per each section I read. Hope it helps and good luck! 

    Any questions or comments, just let me know.

    James, glad you found it so easy. I'm looking to get hold of study materials for Practice Management and beyond. I've been practicing on my own for years and I don't have access to free study materials. Are you looking to get rid of any? Do you know any free/cheap sources for study materials?

    Brian, thank for the link...this is great! I have been studying for PcM as well and I have to say that this is really organized. I've got a similar setup in google drive myself and would also share with anyone that wants my notes and resources. Do you have a link on how to set up a blog as you did?

    I know I spend too much time getting organized!  I just made my blog using Blogger and creating pages that show by adding a page gadget in the layout.  (This is now probably more than you need/want to know about blogs, but I teach engineering and design classes in a middle school where I show them how to make their blogs look more like websites.  We use PowerPoint to lay-out things and then snip a picture of the slide, save it, and insert it into the blog post or page.  This is how I got my home page to have all the images and fonts.  Otherwise, adding text and photos to Blogger directly is very basic as in my Practice Management page.  I also created a custom header in PowerPoint, snipped it and inserted it as a header in the layout of the blog.)

    Brian,

    The Quizlet website seems like a really helpful tool!  Thanks for sharing your resources.  I also have something started on my Google Drive to help me organize my materials.

    Sure, Russel, I will post this weekend as I have gotten through the AHPP and made notes while reading through. I will post a google drive link here when I get it done. just an FYI, I downloaded the electronic version of the AHPP and making notes was great because it was all integrated and portability wise it syncs across all your devices when downloaded from Amazon, so you have the book everywhere.

    Wow Brain and Lorenzo thank you so much! The more resources the better. I do all my notes on the old fashion way with a lot of sharpies, highlighters, flash cards, and a notebook, so I can't share as you guys. I will definitely refer to your work!

    Thank you Brian and Lorenzo for all the great info. I am just getting started to study for this exam. Do you recommend buying  AHPP, Law for Architects, Architects guide to small firm Management?

    I recommend the AHPP 100% as it is the go-to book for the exams and in the matrix as the recommended reading. The other two books contain what is already in the handbook but it doesn't hurt to read.
