Today I got my provisional PASS after failing once and it honestly feels awesome !!
Here is my list of study:
Amber Videos: I am a foreign architect and in my country most building and housing don't use HVAC so I was in zero. The Amber videos do an excellent job at making you understand the different types of systems.
ASC: I read it cover to cover twice and its a must.
Heating, Cooling and Lighting: I'm LEED certified and had a very good understanding of sustainable design but this book is awesome it makes you understand sustainable design in a way that excites you, I honestly couldn't stop reading this book. Read cover to cover. I had so many questions on sustainable design on this exam that I honestly think this is one of the primary sources.
IBC illustrated: As important as HC and L, specially chapters 3, 5, 6, 7 and 10. I read this chapters three times. I had a bunch of questions on codes.
Blackspectacles: I used it to organize my study, the videos are OK but the practice exams are really good.
Hyperfine: Whenever I got tired of reading or watching videos I was working on these exercises that are really good. Its like if Ben Norkin did the hard work for you and you just study from his notes. I liked the problems for extra practice.
FEMA: chapter 5.
Thanks to everybody who was contributed to this forum, its really helpful.
BEST OF LUCK !
