So I have decided to do a write up for each exam that I have taken so far. I took this exam two times and passed on my second try(Thank the Lord above). When I first started studying I was overwhelmed with what do I study, how to study etc. Here's my advice:
So here is what I used to pass:
ARE Ballast 5.0 Review Manual
ARE Ballast 5.0 Practice Exam
Schiff Hardin Lectures
AIA Contracts with commentary
NCARB Code of Ethics
Here's what didn't work:
I do have the AHPP but it was too overwhelming for me, too detailed in my opinion. I like Ballast because everything is in one book.
Understanding the big picture is key to studying for these exams rather than looking at them individually.
I ultimately ended up passing this exam after passing CE and PJM. I highly suggest studying for PCM,PJM and CE together. They all overlap so much and I wish I had done that sooner.
If you guys have any questions feel free to shoot them at me.
Best of luck to all!
