    Congratulations!!! I'm also a working mom doing "architectury" (as my five-year-old son refers to it), eager to get through these exams! You are an inspiration. Thanks for sharing your success.

    Bless, I think I saw your name featured in the One Drawing competition. Was that you? I really enjoyed reading the story behind the drawing and showed it to my office. Congratulations on the many accomplishments this year!! It is also encouraging to know you are a working mom. Thanks for sharing!

    Hey Bless, congratulations!!! Big big year indeed :) I was browsing the forum because I'm signed up for the PPD and PDD in the next month and am very nervous about it because I've taken a year break from the exams. I saw your name on here and I thought "Is this Bless, my coworker???" Your post brought a smile to my face, so happy for you! You are such an inspiration

    Congrats on the PASS! If anyone else is looking for PPD study references, I made a YouTube video covering all of the study materials I used in order to pass the exam. Check it out here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOl17gIUWCM

    I also have videos covering all of the other exams and plan to release a new video every week so be sure to Subscribe so you don't miss any future videos!

    Congratulations! That is very exciting!

    I took PJM yesterday and I completely second that notion of figuring out the whiteboard. I spent about 5-8 minutes messing with it because I was accidentally zoomed out 2000% and then the whiteboard itself shrunk to an unusable size. Took me forever to get back to normal!

    I decided to not take a break. like so many people have commented, it feels risky to lock in your answers. I think it's more mental than anything because rarely does anyone actually have time to go back and review anyway.

    I'm very proud to see parents doing this. My wife and I have 2 kids (2 and 4) and both work full time. I typically review things over lunch, after the kids go to bed, and podcasts in the car. The comments like "I spend 2 hours a night on weekdays and 6-8 hours on weekends" make me chuckle a little bit.

    I wish you nothing but the best. Congratulations!

    Thank you Andrew! I wish you and your family the best as well. 

    We definitely need the support and understanding from our family. Haha. 2 hours a night on weekdays sounds about right (that's about as long as I could stay awake after my son went to bed). And the extra hours on weekends is a must. Especially a couple of weeks before the exam. 

    Not sure how many exams you have left, but for the shorter exams, it makes sense not to take a break. For the longer ones, I would recommend taking a break between the case studies and the mc questions if you have to. 

    Good luck to you!
