    Good for you, but your post actually makes me really proud of all the women almost-architects out there who are working doubly, triply hard trying to pass all their exams while pregnant or with small children!  Kudos to them!

    Congrats, Darguin! I'm sure that you kids and your wife must be very proud of you!

    I found many similarity with your background. English is my second language, and I have three kids, one with special needs. You can now imagine how hard it is for me to find time to study. I managed to pass Pjm, Pcm and Ce so far. I just got my second fail report card on PA today. I feel super defeated, especially I spent the past 4 months studying for the same test every weekend without spending quality time with my family. Can you give me some tips on how to tackle this test again? I kind of over think the questions sometimes, and I ran out of time to finish the test, and I had to rush at the end. By the time I get to the second case study, my mind was in this anxious mode and I couldn't perform well. Both my fail reports stated that I'm weak on "session 2 - code" and " session 4 - building analysis and programing". What reference books on the Ncarb list should I focus on for my next attempt? and should I change my testing strategy by doing the case studies before the multiple choices? I'm at lost and just need some tips. 

    Thanks!

    Oh, and i will try to look into the book that you recommend, "Essentials of Understanding Psychology".

     

    Thanks!

    Great insight! Thank you so much, this is very helpful. English is my second language and since I started studying the exam 3 months ago, I can see the difference in my understanding and articulating. You gave me the final flavor what's missing in my study: thinking and reasoning. "The Architect's handbook of professional Practice" is a great resource, and helps with a bombardment of information and guidance, but without the flavor of thinking and reasoning it becomes something you just read not understand. Congrats on your success!
