So it appears from my preliminary test feedback that I did not pass PjM...again.
I'm not going to lie when I say that I am infuriated at the prospect that countless hours of studying, hard-earned money, and psychological preparation just went out the door another time. Just the same, I'm sure anyone reading this who has failed a test can understand that it is more or so my pride that feels hurt in having to seek out ways that I can successfully pass this section on the next go-around. More than anything I feel like breaking down and giving up, but I know that that wont do me any good.
Essentially I am looking for any good advice that anyone can give me on how to pass this section. I've already passed PcM and I think that I will try to study for and take CE as soon as possible. I've heard from a few people that the information for CE and PjM overlaps and that studying for one can help on the other. Most of the study materials that I have used are as follows:
- Ballast Book with accompanying Practice Exam
- Designer Hacks
- Brightwood/Kaplan Study Books
- AIA Contract Documents
- Handbook of Professional Practice
As I said, I would really appreciate some insight from anyone on how to pass this section and just get it done and over with. Has anyone failed it (either one or multiple times) and successfully passed it? What did you do differently this time as compared to last? More importantly, can anyone offer any new or different study materials which you found helpful?
