    Memorizing the whole list would be way too much but it seems most people try knowing Division 1-10 which isn't bad. Also the order is based on the sequence of construction so think (D0/D1 procurement/general) (D2 Existing) then (foundations D3/4) (Framing D5/6) then (sheathing/openings D7/8) finally (finishes D9)

    Zhurong,

    Heck no!  Do not sit and memorize the entire CSI list, and if you could actually do that I would be super impressed.  Alexander is right - know what the Divisions are but that's it.  You should be able on this exam, if presented with a building material (say "curtain wall") to know that this falls under Division 8 - Openings.  If I say to you "what is Division 7?" you should know that answer and what types of items are included in that division. 

    I would offer as well - know what Divisions 00 and 01 cover and what they typically include.

    I failed this section last time so I made flashcards of the major items. It's not necessary but it did help me understand a lot more about specifying and I feel more confident about the exam.

    I'd say get the gist of the organizational structure as well as specific knowledge of Div's 00-28. Div's go in groups in my understanding like this...

    Div 00

    Div 01

    Div 02

    Div 03-10

    Div 11-14

    Div 21-28

    Div 30-35

    Div 40-end
