    Congrats Dandi on the Pass. This will be my first exam in March. I'm also giving myself about 8 weeks for PcM, then 10 weeks PjM. I didn't see you list another resources that were on the guide. Did you use them ie (Law for Architects, Professional Practice, The Architects Guide...) Also do you have a link to Ballast Practice Exams? I have been using Designer Hacks Practice Exams. Any information will help.

    Hi Michael, 

    I didn't use any other resources than what I have listed, although they're in the handbook. They are definitely helpful, but if you don't have that much time AHPP should be your no.1 material to read. I bought the Ballast Practice Exams on Amazon for like $40. I didn't use Designer Hacks for PcM so I can't really give evaluation. If it contains a lot of scenario questions then I would say it should be a good source!

    Hi !

    Did you us Ballast for studying at all or only did exams?

    Thanks

    Nasheet, I didn't read the review manual itself, only the practice exam. I was told the reading is kinda covered by AHPP, but I might be wrong. It's only a few pages for PcM.

    Congrats Dandi and thank you for sharing your study materials. 

    How did you get access to the AIA Documents - B101, A201, C401? I am curious how to access these. Thank you.
