    1. Start with IBC Chapter 11B to become familiar with the accessibility requirements.
    2. If you can find some sets of plans for commercial or public projects, look at the code analysis page and the IBC table used for the analysis, and become familiar with allowable area and ways to increase allowable area, allowable heights, type of constructions, occupant loads, exit widths calculations, plumbing fixture calculations, fire separation of buildings and allowable percentage of openings for exterior walls, etc.

    Thank you very much! This was definitely a good place to start. I've also found chapters 3, 5, and 6 to be helpful just in regards to some of the questions asked on this exam and the PA exam.
