Clarifications on a few items in PcM- Conflicting info in resources

    Hi Hannah, I don't have time to dig into the specific questions you had at the moment, but I wanted to share a couple general thoughts that will hopefully be helpful:

    1. I would trust AHPP over Ballast and Black Spectacles or any other third party study guide/practice exam. Not sure where the conflicts are but Ballast is known to have multiple errors, especially if you're looking at the first printing.

    2. The Schiff Hardin lectures are a fantastic resource for studying contracts. Aside from reading the contracts two times, my only studying was listening to the lectures and I felt like I had a very good handle on them. I'd say the lectures are a must for almost everyone (who hasn't been involved in contracts in practice) to pass these exams (PcM, PjM, and CE).


    Hopefully someone can chime in with specific answers soon. If I have time to dig up the answers later I will, otherwise best of luck on the exam!

    Thanks for the tips, Scott! I appreciate the input.

    -I will trust AHPP over Ballast and Black Spectacles. Noted!

    -I have been listening to the Schiff Hardin Lectures on the contracts (B101 and A201). I am on my 3rd listen:-) However, I have not listened to the other lectures. I will expand my listening to-do list!

    If someone gets hurt on a job site who's insurance covers the injury? Is it the Owner or Contractor, or I suppose if it is an employee of the Architect or the Architect it might be the Architect's firm itself? 

    The construction site is the domain of the contractor. He is in charge of safety for anybody that steps in. Therefore a GC typically has insurance for Bodily Injury for their own employees and other people which includes architects and third parties. Architects must cover their employees with Employee Liability Insurance.
