    Congratulations Abrah!

    I'm in the same boat, I'm a new mom to a 5 month old and just cannot find the time, discipline, or self confidence to get PPD and PDD done (after two PPD fails and one PDD fail). I signed up for Bootcamp for the upcoming November session and I am sooooo glad to hear that this worked for you. I hope it works for me as well. I'm in need of major hand-holding!

    Congrats again, this gives me hope.

    Abrah,

    On both attempts to pass PPD & PDD, did you take them back to back?

    Hi Agustina.  There are a number of moms in the group in the same boat!  The comraderie is very helpful and the Bootcamp is structured in a way that really helps foster self-discipline.  A lot of people in my July group are passing!  Keep me posted on how it goes.

    Hi Beatriz.  The first time I took PPD first and then PDD 2 weeks later . . . I thought this was too close together.  The second time I took PPD first and then PDD 3 weeks later, which was better.  In retrospect, I think spacing them about one month apart would be ideal.

    Hello,

     

    I wonder is these 2 books will cover all the material for systems so that I would not need to 

    read the huge MEEB book:

    1.Heating, Cooling, Lighting Sustainable Design Methods

    2.Plumbing, electricity, acoustics-Sustainable Design Methods

    I really want to avoid reading MEEB - too dry too much, but not sure if the two above sources cover fundamentals or only specifically sustainability-oriented systems.

    Do people have an idea?

    Thank you,

    I’ve noticed that the books NCARB recommends in the handbook are direct sources for some questions. It’s hard to read but the concepts explained are directly associated with exam questions.
