I just passed PPD and am very excited to have done so.
Here are things I wished I had studied more:
1) Lateral forces and how they engage with different structures
2) Climatic factors
3) Everything else everyone mentions is pretty on point.
This was the first test where a majority of the questions were 'dumb'. By dumb, I mean that I had to consciously forget real-world experience and focus solely on what the questions were asking. In many instances, I needed to spend at least one minute rephrasing the question to understand what was being asked. In addition, there were at least two questions will major grammatical errors i.e. verbs without nouns. I hope those questions were some of the ones that didn't count.
As you prepare for this exam study the stuff that everyone tells you to study, then focus on breaking down the silos between the topics.
Hope this helps.
