    Darguin,

    Sorry to hear you didn't pass. I like your "way of thinking" and for sure, YOU WILL PASS!! It's just matter of time and a little bit of hard work/study time (just a little more). On the other hand, CONGRATULATIONS for your beautiful family and specially the new little one about to come! I'm sure you're giving them a very good example of perseverance and never give up that they will always remember.

    I'm studying now for PPD/PDD at the same time, and yes, the content is huge!! I have a check list of all the topics, but is hard to know how deep we need to get in each one. I was surprise in P&A with a question about the evaluation of two different structural system, although very easy, I wasn't prepared to find it in P&A, but more on PPD. Anyway, it's just a remainder that we need be as prepared as possible. 

    Thanks for sharing your experiences, 

    All the best,

    Thanks a lot for your words Alex. Life keeps going whether we pass or fail. My baby will be with us a month or so after my next and last attempt so pressure is on. I love all the random facts we need to know tho its like ammunition for life. I am so excited and happy regardless of my results. I made a list of things to do after my expected pass and I noticed I can do all of those things without it too so I am going to go ahead and keep growing my business and my career as well as appreciate my family time more.

    Darguin -- a minor setback.  As Alex said -- you WILL pass it.  

    You've been a great example to other candidates regarding perseverance and positive attitude.

    And, Grow that business!

    Keep us posted.

    Darguin, kudos on your attitude and perseverance! Failing an exam can be a major disappointment and deterrent, but I'm glad you're able to stay positive and motivated. Glad you are able to keep things moving in life outside of these exams, too. It's easy to get overwhelmed and, while studying for these exams requires sacrifices, it's good to keep a broader perspective on life.

    You're an inspiration to others for your hard work - I can't imagine going through this process with kids! I'm sure your family will be excited to celebrate with you once the exams are behind you, and your wife will likely be more than happy to let you take over on diaper duty :)  I know my wife is excited to let me get back to cleaning the dishes and kitchen more regularly, too.

    I hope your exam report can give you helpful direction moving forward. This exam is certainly a challenge but you can do it!! Feel free to reach out on this forum for any questions as you continue studying. 

    Good luck!!

    Well folks, I look at the bright side, I already see myself as an architect. My son and daughter do not care about this process. They see me making drawings and models and with my results this morning I get to sleep well at night because once I overlay both of my tests I am a registered architect on paper. I have done it before now just need to walk into the test center in 2 months and do it AGAIN once. This is on my dream board of course with Codes filled in too. I am inspired, like Will Smith said "Fail fast, Fail Often, Fail Forward". I am a witness of this.
