    I know these are listed NCARB resources, but I can’t stress enough the importance of having a deep understanding of A201, B101 and C401. Especially A201.

    In general I’m a huge fan of Amber Book (it was my primary study source for all the exams), but if you only have CE, I’d focus on the contracts and maybe also do the Black Spectacles CE series. They recently redid it and I found it quite good. You can also power through it in just an evening.

    I received my score of 518... super close. 

    The exam threw more PDD / PPD questions than I expected for this round. Black Spectacles subscription - good practice exams, but I canceled the subscription. Young Architects boot camp & Desk Crits has been a good resource, sigh. but I will retake it at the end of May.

    Thank you all for your input! Super helpful! I have Amber Book and Ballast (which was gifted to me) and have downloaded the contracts from NCARB website and listened to Michael Hanaman's lectures.  I'll continue with what I have for now. So many study options out there to choose from and I only have so much personal resource. Firms seem to be unwilling to invest in Amber and Black Spectacle.
