Well, I failed PPD yesterday. I passed PcM, PjM, CE, and PA all on the first try, so this was my first fail, and it hurt. I studied A LOT for this exam, more than I care to admit, and it was hard. I felt really confident about some questions and totally baffled by others, just like every other exam. After looking at my score report, I scored Level 3 (incompetent) in two sections: Building Systems, Materials, & Assemblies (I was nervous about this section) and Project Costs & Budgeting (annoyed about this one).
At the time of scheduling these exams, I felt good about taking PPD and PDD a few days apart based on some of my coworker's experience and what I've read on this forum. Now I'm kind of regretting it. All this to say, should I have hope for a PDD pass? Is there anything else I should be focusing on? I've been studying all the primary sources from the ARE handbook as well as the Amber videos.
I know that's a broad question, just kind of wanted to hear other's thoughts. I'll give it my all for the next few days, and I guess pass or fail, I'll have to chalk it up to a really expensive practice test.
