    Hi Fernando! Happy for you too!! I am thinking about PjM as it has some overlaps with PcM.

    Samira, can you point me to where you found the PDF "Navigating the Architect Registration Examination® (5.0) with The Architect’s Handbook of Professional Practice, 15th Edition"? I have the Handbook just trying to make sure I am studying the most relevant material as there is a lot in this book.

    Congrats on your pass!

    Do you think its critical to go through AHPP chapters?

    What if I read Ballast manual a few times accurately instead?

    Yas,

    Dont spend money on Ballast. Get the AHPP. Read the chapters that are required by the Wiley Index. That should be enough for the exam. Ballast exams are useful but the manual itself falls short in my opinion.

    Shane, I already responded to your comment and I shared the link to the PDF I was talking about, it is pending approval. Just google "Navigating the Architect Registration Examination® (5.0) with The Architect’s Handbook of Professional Practice, 15th Edition" you will find it. If not, I'll email it to you!

    Hi Yasmin, 

    I'd say NO! ARE questions are designed per AHPP ! I think AHPP is a must ! the good thing is , once you read it and you get yourself familiar with the content, it covers 3-4 exams for you. Just read the chapters I mentioned before, you can find them here: "Navigating the Architect Registration Examination® (5.0) with The Architect’s Handbook of Professional Practice, 15th Edition"  Google this. If you could not find it I will email it to you. It narrows down the book to cover the most relevant sections to practice management. Ballast is a great resource, but there is no way that it is sufficient for these exams.

    Samira, thank you for the response and I still cannot seem to find it while on Google. I will see if your first response gets approved and goes through and if not it would be great if you could send it as that would help a ton.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Samira,

    Congrats on passing the test. Can you please share a good resource for financial questions? And in the test if they don’t ask you to round up the numbers, does that necessarily mean the answer is a whole number? If you can help answering these questions that would be great!

    Thanks!
