I can now say that I have both failed PDD and passed it. While studying the 2nd go around I know there were some people on here who posted about their study materials and I found it really helpful, so I wanted to share. The 2nd time I took this test I didn't study any 5.0 material. I stayed with all 4.0 material. I studying Kaplan, and I rented the ballast Q/A books online. I also used Architect Exam Prep 4.0 for BS and BDCS. Lastly I took the practice PDD exams on Designer Hacks- I found this VERY helpful for practicing for the exam. I didn't work too much on Structures, I just basically sacrificed those questions and focused on the other two sections. This time when I took the exam I felt waay more prepared then when I studied the 5.0 material the first time I took it. This was my last exam- so I am very relieved to say goodbye to this process all together. I just wanted to share incase people were struggling as I was deciding what to study.
GOOD LUCK- and hang in there!!!
