    Congrats, glad to hear that you passed this!  Your input above is good and exactly what I experienced on this exam. 

    For PPD and your worries about the Site Design Handbook - it sounds like you read a bunch of other site-related materials and I don't know that you'll need to read that book again.  All those items you've identified above relating to site design - climate, orientation, etc. - how do you feel you did on those questions for PA?  If you felt comfortable with them, I'd say then that you'd have the same level of comfort for PPD.  I don't recall there being any "new" site items on PPD - more of the same as the PA test.

    Congrats again, keep going.

    Thanks!

    David, you are right, I guess I feel comfortable about my site knowledge at this point, maybe only going thru notes will be enough.

    HI Elif,

    Congrats on your PA pass!!

    I failed my PA couple days ago.  Thank you for the study tips. Can you please clarify which "Architectural Primer" book are you referring to?

    Hi Ella,

    Sorry about your exam, I hope you pass it next time. The exact name of the book is Problem Seeking: An Architectural Programming Primer William M. Peña and Steven A. Parshall John Wiley & Sons, 5th edition, 2012. It is one of the books recommended by NCARB in 5.0 Handbook for only  PA exam. I benefit a lot from recommended readings on the Handbook. I hope it helps to you as well.
