    Congratulations! Yes, for IBC, you do not need to memorize the specific information, juts need to know where to find the information and use it.

    For ARE exams, use the search function.

    For real life, use the Table of Content and the Index.

    Sounds like that worked for you. How much of real life experience played role in your success? Thanks!

    Roma- I do think that real world experience is helpful for all the exams, and maybe especially for PDD.  I have been working for many, many years, and that may have led to my pass.  However, in my day to day work experience, I do not encounter the majority of the topics covered on the test.  I believe that studying the material is really what led to my pass, although being familiar with how to draw details, specifications, and reading the codes did help.  I think using a variety of resources is most helpful, including looking through drawing sets to see how sets are laid out, which engineer covers what, and mostly, DETAILS!  Hope that helps!
