    I just took PA yesterday and unfortunately it was a fail. But I agree with everything you said, this is a great post! Thank you for sharing! This was my first 5.0 exam after transitioning, I think my biggest thing to do next is practice more and to go faster through the questions. Congrats!

    Hi Oliver,

    I'm sure they're out there somewhere, but I'm not sure where. Here is a link https://www.dropbox.com/sh/u802jpldea0b5mq/AAC1ZtMc9slhRtVKVpCF47XEa?dl=0

    Thank you Amelia for sharing! Can you please provide links or what you exactly googled regarding asbestos, radon and lead? Is it more general info on them?

    Hi Layla,

    I'm sorry I didn't save the links. I think you just need to have an understanding of what building components/materials they could be in and some basic strategies to mitigate them/who is responsible for it. I wouldn't worry about going into too much depth.

    Good Luck!

    This is great, I am gearing up to take PA in one month, I have a few questions.  SPD is a very wordy book did you find it helpful reading through several chapters or just one chapter?  I am also reading Ballast but I am finding a lot of information about taxes, and financing is this material worth diving into? What would you say was your most helpful piece of material?

    Hi Tony,

    I don't think you need to read too much of the SPD book for this exam, just the sections I listed above would probably be fine. I don't remember getting any of the taxes, financing questions - I thought this was a bit weird when I was studying and I don't think it ever hurts to have a basic understanding but I'm guessing they might be more likely to come up in the Project management and Practice management exams.
