Received a "Provisional Fail" after my PPD exam yesterday. What a disappointment. This is the first exam I have failed and now with only PPD and PDD left I am feeling the urge to just get this process over with. I have signed up for PPD in 60 days. I plan to study fully until that date. I really do not want to have to go through a 4+ hour exam for a third time.
I went into the exam feeling very confident. I had studied a lot, taken plenty of notes and followed the same process that had brought me success with the past 4 exams. I focused mostly on Black Spectacles, Ballast Study Guide and Ballast Practice exams. However, once I started really getting into the test there were a lot of terms I had not seen before and I had to rely heavily on my intuition (something that is not that strong with only 3.5 years of professional experience).
My score report said that I came up short in the Codes & Regulations section. What are the best materials for me to study so I can fill this gap? I am tired of playing the game of "what is on the test" rather than spending my time focusing on actually absorbing the material.
