Again, thank you all for the tremendous support on this forum. I just found out my score and it was a pass. This was my third exam (passed CE & PrM), so I gave myself 4 weeks to cram and re-read my old study notes from PrM. There was a few calculation questions, and these questions will require more time than the other ones, so I'd recommend skipping these questions and come back to it with leftover time (which still wasn't enough).
The questions, as you all know it, need to be answered at face value. And even though there's 4 good answers to the question. You gotta ask yourself, "which ones are the best one?" "am I overthinking?"
Nevertheless, during the exams you're going to be facing some pretty tough and unexpected MC questions, and if you're like me, you'll have no idea which one's the right one. So here's the testing strategy that I've been using so far to overcome my fear of losing time, or perhaps, you could say that I've been mitigated my exam risks, like an architect:
choose best 4 out of 6, then find the worst 2.
unsure of the question? start your process of elimination. increase your chance of getting right, by eliminating what you know is wrong.
Thoughts of the exam:
Again it was tricky. There was a lot of questions with 4 very likely answers that will make you think twice about what you've selected. Understand Project Delivery types & how an Architect can best ATAC risks (read AHPP). You should also be aware of the types of Firm Practices (AHPP) and what they're all about. Other than that, Kevin G's AHPP suggested chapters cover most of things you should know about.
Kevin G's Pluralsight (this was a good starting point)
AHPP Chapters recommended by Kevin G (this helped, ALOT)
Designer Hacks Pc M Exams (this filled in spots where I'd read more)
ARE Review Practice Exams (These questions weren't very relevant)
old study notes from PrM
Good luck fellow candidates, you got this & may the force be with you.
