(UPDATE 7/5/21) I passed!
EDIT: I passed!
PPI2Pass ($29/month) - this was incredibly useful. The diagnostic exams, the flashcards and the questions were all vital to passing.
Ballast (physical books from my office) - I hardly touched the physical copies, since the online portal has all of the questions plus many more.
Amber Book ($220/month) - The flash cards for this division were great.
Designer Hacks ($39 once) - I feel like these practice exams fill in the gaps from PPI2Pass and made sure I knew the content and wasn't just memorizing the questions.
3 down, 3 to go!
If I were you, I’ll add the critical AIA documents to the list and peruse them.

Congrats on the pass!
If anyone else is looking for free resources on what to study and general studying tips, I made a YouTube video explaining everything I did in order to pass the exam in 1 month. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/-qPZkheCijE
Ps. I made a video of study tips for each of the ARE 5.0 exams. Check them out on my channel.
Thank you! You are right. I think I spent too much time on previous questions and there was not enough time left for the case study. And when I was getting nervous, I didn't have much patience left to go through pages in the case study. Thanks for your prompt response. It's good to know all of the answers for the case studies were contained in the PDFs.
