    _pppnotes by Caroline Joseph (same here, I read this a few days before my test. This one covers more than the Jenny's notes)

    Congrats on passing PA and thanks for the tips!  

    What chapters do you recommend focusing on for the book, Problem Seeking, An Architectural Programming Primer?

    I focused on the previous sections and quickly read through the whole book. I think as long as you get familiar with the five steps of programming and 4 aspects, it would be enough for the exam. Besides, this book has many diagrams in it, so it shouldn’t take long to read : )

    Hi Ramy,
    I think the most important thing taking those practice exams is to find out what you don’t know very well : ) and I do think some of the blackspectacle questions are too detailed. So don’t worry too much on those, and good luck!
