    Sign up for the Amber book. The math questions are easy points. So you should aim to leave no question unanswered. The amber book suggests taking PjM and PcM and CE all at the same time. They cover so much of the same material.

    I see you said you finished with plenty of time left, but did not do the calculation questions.  I must advise you at what a poor idea that was.  Each question is only worth one point, but trying to solve a question gives you a better chance than guessing...

    Project Management is an "easier" exam than practice management in my opinion - because practice is very much calculations and legal procedures, while project management is about the drawings and the relationships of who, what, where, and why.  Practice management is A LOT for the average young professional to learn, being as the average young professional has not run their own practice.  Whereas, the average young professional may have had some experience running projects.  They do overlap, however.  In terms of staffing, and contract documents.

    The AHPP is THE BEST REFERENCE for Practice Management.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a book called THE BUSINESS OF DESIGN which really breaks down practice management in easy to understand terms - and it is a quick read!

    I always recommend practice exams and testing yourself on what you think you have learned based on other people's perspectives. I also always recommend study groups, which you can find in the NCARB Forum community.

    Best wishes,
