    To find Tatyana's Notes, you can type "Tatyana's Notes" into the Search Bar at the top of the Community Forum webpage. Tatyana's page should come up at one of the first results and you can download her Word Doc notes.

    This link should also be to her Notes:

    Hi Seth,

    Thanks for the notes!

    I noticed the ARE 5.0 Practice manual says to only study B101 2017 and C401 2017. Do you think that is accurate? Or do you think we need to know other contracts?

     

    Thanks,

    Hannah

    Hi Hannah.

    I found that I needed to know more than the bare bones AIA Contracts and Forms listed in the Practice Manual to do well on the prep tests and quizzes and to feel confident going into the Exam.

    I also didn't want to possibly fail the Exam because I didn't do something easy like know all the Contracts and Forms.

    I also figured I'd need to know all the Contracts and Forms at some point anyway - so I might just as well deal with them now.

    So I guess it's a matter of personal preference.

    FYI: I'm prepping for PjM now and it's helpful to already know all the Contracts and Forms. It's definitely expediting my prep-work.

    Hope that's helpful to you.

    Thanks for the study advice Seth! My test is a week away so I am wrangling up all the loose ends. My hunch was to just look at everything. It suited me well in PA, PPD and PDD to do some overlap.

    Good luck on PjM! I will be taking that next.

    Are there “case study” style questions on the Practice Management exam?

    @Amy, yes there are case study questions on PcM, and on every exam. See the Handbook for plenty of information on how the Case Studies might work in an exam.
