    I was sad that nobody answered your question, so I’m going to try to tackle it. It’s a good question - shows you are understanding the different systems. The fan coil unit and a chilled beam are similar. A chilled beam doesn’t usually have a fan though. Since heat rises, and the chilled “beam” is in the ceiling, it works.
    This website is helpful. https://www.theseverngroup.com/chilled-beam-vs-chilled-ceiling/
    Also, all the examples of chilled beans that ive seen included lighting, and are a more elegant looking solution, although more $$ of course.
    Hope that helps! When are you taking your exam?

    I finished my exams in Feb!! My license came through in April. I had no interest in giving ncarb $$ until i stumbled upon an inspiring mentor. I have a grad degree in education and taught college arch classes for awhile. Currently I’m running ARE study groups and trying to help/inspire others to pass the ARE. https://stepup-are.thinkific.com/
