Hello fellow licensees,
So as the title states, I just received the Likely Pass yesterday for PPD and I'm frantically trying to decide if I want to take PDD in two weeks before vacation..
To give a background, I've passed PcM, PjM, PA, and now PPD(Fingers still crossed, I never claim victory until I see the green PASS). I primarily studied Ballast, Plural Sight, the Amber Videos, Karins notes(god bless her soul), designer hacks, and Black Spectacles for PPD, So far, for PDD, I've read about half of Ballast, taken one BS Practice Test(got 50%), and started Plural Sight.
I've been told both sides of the coin: A. Taking back to back is absolute insanity and I will be doomed, and B. It's absolutely the way to go. So I'm reaching out to fellow licensees to weigh in on this. I'm primarily worried about:
-Structures - Moment/Shear Calcs
-Mechanical - Calculating loads for HVAC, etc
-Plumbing - Calculating complex piping runs, etc.
If anyone who has experience with PDD has any thoughts on this, I'd love to hear them! I'm fairly good at waving friends and family goodbye to hide away and study, and I'm ready to hammer down for two weeks, I'm just worried there's still so much content left to learn that I won't be able to absorb it all.
