    Hi Elizabeth. It is actually the SWPPP. Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan. I also skimmed Sun, Wind and Light.

    I found the Amber books flash cards with all the videos extremely relevant to the test itself.

    Make sure you study the diagram about positions of buildings on a hill as they relate to climate ie hot/humid hot arid cold etc

    Ballast is a joke! It is a bloated source of passive income for David Kent Ballast. There is so much lard in the fucking thing that is a total waste of time. You will NEVER be asked a question about Ebenezer Howard's "Garden City" and the other useless crap in the PA section. PjM Contracts section was TOTALLY useless. I'm definitely  looking for another study guide.

    Hi Anthea - I know this is an old thread, but do you recall how long you studied for PA using Amber? I just finished the pro prac exams and am getting Amber for the last three and trying to figure out my schedule. Thank you and congrats on the pass!

    Its hard to say. I studied on and off for a total of about 2months I think. I started to study pre-pandemic and then took a long break, and then really buckled down and focused about 2 months before the test. Sorry I am not more help.

    Hi Anthea! Congratulations! Did you find the Amber Book systems videos beneficial for the exam? Or mainly site and codes?
