• Thanks a lot Paul and Nr for your feedback and for sharing the links! l'll check them out soon!

• Thara ~ I too am having a very tough time understand this topic; whereas, I am positive that I am "over-thinking" them; imagine that, right?  Here is a link that I created last year that helps me to "memorize" the financial matrix; however, I too need actual "case study exam prep" problems for which to practice over-over, can anyone assist us?

This is a link to Eric Walker's PcM full practice test. I bought it to get more in depth practice with the financial aspects, and as an added practice test. The math problems  are tough, but he goes through a step by step walkthrough of the logic behind it and the equation work-though that I find very helpful!

Worth it if you are struggling with the equations like I was.

• Thanks a lot, Tess for sharing this!

• CUDOS: Wanted to share this, so everyone can LAUGH at the semantic.

Bidding Phase: When considering alternates, type of alternate reduces the base bid amount?

I will get this wrong every time.

Show me what document defines the difference between "reduced" and "deducted"? Come on, REALLY????

• What practice form is that from?

• AN impressive one, BEST of the worst:  here's another funny:

Architect uses shop drawing to improve the quality of the design (THIS IS AGAINST ALL RULES OF AIA A201 ARCH WILL NEVER DO THIS), thus adding more cost/time to the project. What should the Contractor do? (I AM NOT TAKING THE GC TEST, I AM WISHING TO BECOME AN AGENT TO THE OWNER, WHY PUT ME IN THIS ROLE?)

 1./ Complain to the Owner 2./ Reduce labor costs by requesting competing bids from Sub-Contractors 3./ Request a change order 4./ Complete the work as per the shop drawing   if you want the answer, find me @ paul e . voxstudio "at" g mail.communications   what a joke question, do laugh with me!!!
• Please consider me cra at this point, crazy with passion like most to achieve, not step backward:

Here's a post that is sure to rise temperatures; hopefully full of love, light, and prosper:
