    Congrats Katherine!

    Glad to hear you have gotten over the hill! PDD is my last exam as well, and I have already taken it twice (albeit I've passed some other tests since I last took PDD. I have some questions I would like to ask and see if I can get some insight into the best way to approach this exam for the third (and hopefully last!) time:

    How many times did you take the test before? Was this your first attempt? 

    Did you feel that some materials were better in terms of what you saw on the exam? I have a friend who recently passed PDD and he said that he felt like AGS and BCI were what got him through (also on his third attempt).

    Did you feel like you knew the content on the exam, or did you feel like you had to do a lot of guesswork? Do you think what you studied helped you gain sufficient knowledge to answer questions?

    I recently ordered AGS, BCI, and Olin's Construction to see if these will help out with details, construction methods, etc.

    Again congrats! Best of luck moving forward with your license and career!

    Sorry for the late response Taylor. I think that Amber followed by BCI was very much the base layer for everything else. AGS is a behemoth but has a lot in it. I think i spent like an entire day just looking through it. Having basic understanding of the concepts behind most systems maybe useful so that you can analyze complex issues but stay clear headed about what they are actually asking. Yes to guesswork, always feels that way to me. I did feel like i learned a lot studying for the test, Amber, BCI, codes illustrated, and AGS were really useful because they are so visual.
