    Asalaam Mahya,
    Well, "time crunch" and AGS are a bit paradoxical, but I think the best strategy is not to read it cold, but to use it as a reference to solve problems/dive deep. That's why HF was so key for me - instead of reading 100 pages on metal, I solved a metal problem by referencing AGS.
    That being said, I would still highly recommend the following:
    SECTION 1 DESIGN
    - Universal Design (up to public restrooms)
    - Safety
    SECTION 2 MATERIALS
    - Concrete
    - Masonry
    - Metals
    - Wood/plastics/composites
    (I redrew a lot of the detailing, it was key to retention)
    SECTION 3 ELEMENTS
    - Foundations
    - Thermal movement
    - Extérieure vertical enclosures
    - exterior horizontal enclosures
    - Plumbing
    - HVAC
    - Electrical

    Those were my weak areas, so I spent time on them. Yours or anyone's may be different. But simply opening it up to the Table of Contents, and tabbing out what you identify as your weakness, will be a huge step in focusing your efforts

    Best of luck!

    Hi Patrick, 

    Congratulations and thank you for the writeup. Did you read all of AGS? Can you say which chapters are more crucial if you are on a time crunch?

     

    Thanks!
