    Artem,
    Heres what I would recommend memorizing, meaning, actually taking the time to convert to memory:
    1) basic ADA ramp design
    2) what each chapter of the code deals with - e.g. Chapter 10 is egress
    3) know what the various use groups are - e.g. that a restaurant would be an Assembly Use, an office space would be a Business Use

    That's it. All tables you will be given on the test. Just know how to use them only.

    Hello,

    I am not good at taking exams, even so, before I start I go directly to Case Studies and check SOURCES, so I take note of those that are available and could be useful to answer questions related to codes, etc.

    Thank you for all the comments.

     

    How can I address my question to an NCARB associate directly here? Ryan, Michelle, or Nick.

    Thank you,

    Hey Artem,

    I wouldn't recommend memorizing ADA or IBC. Case study questions that reference IBC or ADA will include excerpts from the documents. Understanding the general format, concepts, and how to navigate both IBC and ADA is more critical. If you focus on general concepts from the code and ADA, you will be fine. Don't worry about memorizing tables.
