    Hi Justin,
    Great post, thanks for this! I'm about to embark on this venture and am wondering if you have an opinion on the most/least helpful study materials and prep courses you used? I've heard Amber is pretty great - it seems very informational, but I wonder if it's directly helpful for exam prep? And I'm wondering if the PPI material was very helpful, the hard copies versus the eTextbook?
    Thanks in advance for any thoughts you care to share!

    Eric, great to hear you're starting your journey! All the material I bought, I found helpful.

    In particular, Amber Books is my favorite as far as the presentation of content and depth of it. PPI (Ballast) is great and it seems to hit the level of depth that is aligned with ARE and it is a vetted resource over decades. I bought the hardcopy and then PPI said there was a promotion for the etextbook with hardcopy for $50 which I found helpful because I could easily search the book for particular content but still enjoy the ole' fashion hardcopy. Black Spectacles is a must for the practice exams. AHPP is necessary for PcM, PjM, and CE. 

    The only material I did not find helpful (or rather, was likely outshined by the other material) was the Exam Prep. 

    Good luck, you got this!
