    Congratulations Iuliia!  I got a pass on CE this week as well, after taking PcM and PjM.  I agree with much of what you outlined above and found many of those sources very useful for studying, especially Young Architect's courses for all three of PcM, PjM and CE.

    I would say for anyone out there taking exams right now and need to follow COVID-related procedures, it helped me to do practice tests at home wearing PPE (masks/gloves) so that it doesn't feel distracting or overwhelming on the test day.  If anything it helped me get into the right mindset and stay calm during the exams.

    I agree that time can be tight and the case study material takes a LOT of time to sift through, even when you know what to look for, try to give yourself at least an hour for the case studies alone.  And no matter what answer EVERY question on the exam.

    I recommend to everyone to use these forums, I found everyone's advice really helpful and reassuring.

    On to PA!  And good luck to everyone on this journey!

    Congrats Iuliia and Meredith !!!

    I have my first ARE exam in 3 weeks. 

    Designer hacks exam tests doesnt include any case study. Do you recommend any other online resources for taking more realistic exams? 

    Thanks a lot and good luck

    Case studies can be found in Ballast's Practice Exam and Practice Problems. Also, Young Architect Academy CE course has case studies.
