    Fundamentals of Building Construction by Edward Allen and Joseph Iano has be great. I also really like the Amber Book course.

    Juan - here's my post with my full study resources:

    Note that it has a link to what I studied for PPD as well.  Go to that, because I studied for both of these tests together and as such, used similar resources.

    The books I used for this exam include:

    Fundamentals of Building Construction
    Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for Buildings
    Building Construction Illustrated
    Architectural Graphic Standards

    In addition, I used Amber Book videos and Hyperfine practice questions.

    I discovered a great book on details.
    Architectural Detailing by Allen and Rand.
    Check it out on Amazon and use the Look Inside/Surprise Me feature to see the content.

    Conveniently, a lot of the drawings are 3"x 5" so could be photo copied and pasted on index cards to make your own flashcards?

    Drawings are EXCELLENT and clear enough and rationalle are paired with each illustration. Not cheap... $84... But I think it's worth it
