I have been meaning to write this on here for months, but due to the pandemic and everything else going on I put it on the back burner. This community was vital for helping me pass my exams. Everyone is so helpful, encouraging, and supportive. I didn't post much while I was actually taking my exams, I was more of a fly on the wall. But now I want to give you the same benefits that I received from this community. The biggest help to me was the resource lists from people who had passed the exams. So, I put together a list of resources that really helped me. I also made a blog/vlog discussing what worked for me, what didn't, and how I picked myself up after failing. You can watch/read here: https://www.byoungdesign.com/post/getting-through-the-are.
These exams are NOT easy! Every time I failed (which was more than a few times) it was defeating. But, I finally got through them. I honestly didn't think the day would come. Now being on the other side, I want you to all know that these won't last forever. You will pass and be done soon. Just stick with it!
Here is a comprehensive list of all the resources that helped me pass my exams. It contains links to PDFs, books, free resources, etc.
I also just received a 15% off code for PPI products, which is helpful since their products are pricey. NOTE: I used their sources way before they gave me a code and it really helped me get through the exams, so I am not sharing this for monetary reasons. Promo code is "BYOUN".
I hope this is helpful! I'm happy to answer any questions about what helped me pass. Good luck!!
