Well, I just took the PDD yesterday. I felt that if I had not studied at all it would have been the same result. Lots of the questions are hard to follow what they are asking for. Most importantly, the drawings in the case study are so hard to see it was impossible to answer questions that required information from them. Even zooming to 100% they were really tiny and additionally in a small window on the screen. You had to pan around and around and they were the worst drawings I have ever seen in my many years working. Having started out in 4.0 and passing all the 4.0 tests, I would take drawing the vignettes any day over the trying to wade through the foggy diagrams. My advice to all is that you don't over-study but instead pick up a good magnifying glass and see if the test center will let you take it in! Also, questions seemed to totally skewed toward work done by urban firms with large projects. If you work on 'small town' projects or rural area, you are at a disadvantage.
