    Congrats!  The only resource from your list that I don't have is BlackSpectacles.  I have about 7 weeks until I take the PcM exam. The PPI2PASS online resources and book has been very useful to me in retaining the info thus far. On chapter 2 at this moment. How many case studies did you have?

    Thanks Carl!

    Yes - the PPI2Pass was probably the best resource. I had 2 case studies. BlackSpectacles is okay - it's really good for all of the practice tests. It helps you learn how to take the test, but I thought their questions were VERY basic. What also helped me was to make a matrix of types of information so I could see the similarities and differences between business organization set-ups, construction contract types, AIA Document contracts too, etc. Highly recommend doing that!!

    Good luck studying!!

    Hi Yasaman -

    Thanks!! So relieved.

    I used Ballast - https://ppi2pass.com/are-5-0-review-manual-are5rmp.html

    A lot of my friends are using Brightwood - I've heard good things about them as well. I just didn't add them to my list of resources for no real reason other than I felt like I was confident with the resources I did use.

    Good luck studying!!

    Grace
