    Thank you for the tips! So funny that you mention the brain foods because I was advised to do this recently! Will definitely try for my June 1st retake.

    Joyce,

     

    CONGRATS TO YOU!

    Thank you for sharing! I take PPD again in 1.5 weeks. I am slowly improving my knowledge in the Integration of Systems division of this exam. Watching videos is extremely helpful with studying for me also! I've been going through a lot of PPD playlists that others have formulated.

    Do you have any highly recommended videos for integration of systems?

    Recommending Hyperfine - videos and problem sets to gain confidence on Integration of Systems. https://hyperfinearchitecture.com/ppd-pdd-study-resource-review/

    Also, Architects Studio Companion by your side to peruse whenever you have 15 mins to focus. The 3rd time I read each section, I "got" it.

    Last but not least, Ching's Building Construction Illustrated. 

    These in combination with working through relevant Hyperfine problems will probably do the trick. Good Luck!!!

    PS - Don't forget subsystems like Lighting and Acoustics. Be prepared for some questions to seem a bit "dated" in terms of technology. If you understand the underlying concepts, you can apply to the older technologies. I did watch a few random Acoustics & Lighting videos that helped break down my filter on these subjects and view them from a different perspective. I tend to apply an engineering filter to architecture.
