    I did fine with just AHPP (read a lot of it), the code of ethics, and the AIA contracts online.  Look at A201 in the contracts, even though I don't think it's specifically listed for PcM.  It will provide a lot of context for the other contracts. AIA also has some free youtube videos about contracts that I found after I took PcM and used for PjM.  I also asked the other licensed architect in our firm, who is also a principal, about firm financials.  So if you have that resource in your office, def talk to them.

    Hi Joey,

    Some people are able to do well with just the AHPP, code of ethics, and AIA contracts like Kathryn. I personally needed study guides along with the mentioned resources to understand the subjects further. It really depends on what works best with your study habits. But if you're willing to invest a little, I liked Architect Exam Prep's materials because they explain PcM topics pretty thoroughly, and they are NCARB approved as a test prep provider. I also liked Hyperfine Architecture's study guide (and cheaper than Architect Exam Prep), which gives you more explanation about the financial formulas and vocabulary.

    Joey,

    AHPP is a great resource, but as you can see, it is incredibly thick.

    Wiley was nice enough to put out study guides for each division of the exam.  You can download the PDFs and read the most relevant parts: https://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/Section/id-818786.html

    Joey,

    This is a more high-level bird's eye view, if that is what is preferable to plan your studies:

    Just to add to the list, I used Archizam free questions quiz. They were extremely helpful. https://www.archizam.com/
