    There are suggested answers to questions that are wrong... only a couple, but don't let it stop you. When you see it, it will make you better in understanding. Also look at other comments posted on this PA section to help. Best of luck.

    Todd,

    I agree with you.  The new practice exams, while more graphic, have not been vetted properly and are filled with inconsistencies.  I'd use the Demonstration Exam inside your NCARB acct.

    Hope this helps!

    interior designer makes sense here as there's a lot of furniture, and finish changes with the area colorings. let an interior design consultant handle that stuff. You don't need an aviation consultant since you're just doing a lounge at an airport, not a runway or baggage terminal.

     

    I personally found PA practice question 44 to be completely ridiculous. It is contradictory in many ways but the first item is the glaring inconsitency between "3 levels of apartments" and having to place the professional service people on the top floors of the three story buildings. are we saying three total levels? Three distinct levels? I take issue with pretty much everything in this question including the visual style and perspectival placing format too. additionally, there is no info that states what the service drive is.
