I passed my CE exam. I took this exam third, after PcM and PjM. In my test experience, this exam was very heavy on the A201 contract. The other major contracts, A101, B101, C401 and the G7-series barely came up, except in the Case Studies, and for those you have the contracts provided for reference. I'd say that almost half of the non-Case Study questions dealt with the A201. I encountered approximately 15 questions that dealt with construction details or construction problems, and those were all over the place in terms of content.
As for materials that I studied, I read the AHPP (chapters 9 & 10) and the AIA contracts. For my previous exams, I did listen to the A201 and the B101 Schiff-Hardin lectures and found them helpful. The only other study material I used was an old PPI study guide to the ARE 4.0, reading just the material that dealt with the CA phase. In my opinion, reading the AHPP and thoroughly studying the AIA contracts are the only study materials you need (well, except for on-the-job experience to gain general familiarity with construction and details).
Best of luck all!
