    I studied Amber book for PPD and PDD but failed my PPD test yesterday. I thought there was a lot of questions on the test that I did not see in the material (I skipped Pro-professional). I need to take PDD and pass these two within the next 3-months before my rolling clock expires my other tests transitioned from 4.0 and now am wondering if it makes sense to go ahead and take PDD, when I did not pass PPD! Any feedback would be appreciated

    Sorry to hear that.  Did you study the "flash cards" on Amber Book?  There was a lot of material in the flash cards that was not covered in the videos and came up on the PPD exam, most noticeably sections on seismic and electrical raceways.  I did not study the professional practice section on Amber Book either, since I took those exams previously.  I know that Michael from Amber Book would suggest to yes go ahead and take PDD anyway.  If you still have your Amber Book subscription, I would take the PDD practice exam and see how you do.  If your subscription is expired, and you really did not feel good while you were taking the PPD exam, perhaps reschedule to allow yourself more time to study for both exams.  If I recall correctly, I think you need to wait a month before you can retake an exam?  If that's the case, I would make sure to allow time to take PDD a second time in your 3 month window.

    Thank you for your feedback. Yes, I did study the Flash cards for both PPD and PDD. Got to wait 2 month to retake anything.  I will schedule the PDD as I have to! Very frustrating to say the least!! I did study pretty hard!? Thanks again
