    A good place to start is the case studies provided in the Ballast Practice Problems (2x case studies) and Practice Exam (2x case studies). Besides these I did't practice any additional case studies and passed PcM on first attempt.

    Thank you Peter. What other materials did you study ?

    Deena,

    I used the following resources to pass both PcM and PjM: ARE Handbook, Ballast study guide, practice problems, and practice exam, The Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice (with these study guides), AIA contracts with Schiff Hardin Lectures (A201 & B101), and Designer Hacks practice exams. Four weeks study time per exam. Hope this helps.

    Did you get your result right after you take your exam ? I am taking my first one-PCM on next month.

    You have the option of viewing a preliminary score once you complete each exam. The prelim score is "accurate, not official". I received the official scores about 1 week after.

    The Case Study questions on the exam take lots of time- make sure you allow for it.
