I need some test taking advice because I am losing hope and confidence extremely fast.
I started studying for the test last year and PA is the first exam I decided to study for. The first test I failed, but didn't really phase me since it was the first test. I used Problem Solving, Site Planning and Design, IBC, Building Code Illustrated, all the Ballast materials, some ARE 4 materials, Designer Hacks and a ton of practice exam questions. I studied 2 hours everyday, crammed during the weekends, and practiced answering the questions. I studied to the point that I got 100% on literally all the practice exam questions (from Ballast, Designer Hacks, and some ARE 4 PPP and SPD materials)
After studying for almost 4 months, I was sure I was going to pass this time, but I failed again. I honestly don't know what I am doing wrong here. I studied so hard and memorized everything, but it's not working at all.
Is there like a tutor or an instructor seminar that I can maybe look into? What am I doing wrong? Also there were questions that weren't even covered from the study materials. How am I suppose to study for this stupid test?
Thank you for your input.
