I am starting to prep for the CE exam, I have taken it twice now and used the Ballast books, NCARB practice exams, ARE handbook, AIA contracts, AHPP. Any advice on what else to study?
I have noticed you said that you "used" these books. Does that mean you read them, or not?
I was quite shocked recently when someone told me that they had looked at (but NOT read) every single page in a giant pile of about 10 different books in order to pass the 3 technical AREs. My advice would be to read 1 or 2 of the most helpful books, and learn the material in depth, rather than trying to skim 10 different books. I suddenly realized why this person had struggled so much to pass the ARE.
You have the right materials. Just read or reread them. I really absorbed the material I read 2xs a lot more.
Keep studying & good luck!
