    Hi Corey. What makes you say it felt like an exam for engineers? I'm taking PPD on Sunday. Just curious. 

    Taking PDD in 4 weeks. I heard Amber book is good, along with ASC and graphic standards.

    Hi Steven, 

    There were multiple questions I received on the exam were oddly specific about certain standards and regulations that I had never heard of before.   I can recall the exam asking for a dimension based on a section from an engineering manual.  Other than that I was absolutely stunned when I saw the amount of specific questions.

    Regardless, I would focus on the zoning and usage and building heights.  That was very common. I was a bit shocked at how few questions related to structure, mechanical systems, and plumbing. 

    Good luck!
