I am at my wits end with these exams. I read all the study materials, taken all the mock exams, read all the books in the reference guide, taken advantage of the PACT program, watched the videos and i still can not seem to pass PPD or PDD!
I have been working full-time since 1998 and it makes me feel like my 21 years of experience is just a waste and I don't want to take the time to figure how how much money I have spent in pursuing this licence. I've been working in Corporate Interiors, Interior Architecture, WorkPlace Architecture...whatever we are calling it these days for so long, I can only conclude that I am being punished for not working on ground-up project my whole career.
I don't expect anyone from NCARB to respond to this post, but if I had a wish, it would be to sit down with someone from NCARB and walk through my failed exams to get feedback on what I was supposed to study to understand what the question was asking. I do not need you to give me the answers, I just need one-on-one help from the people who are creating the exam. I would happily pay for that service and I'm confident many others would as well.
Thanks for listening...
