PA - Suggested Study

    The PA exam is very different from the other 3 you mentioned.  You are going to ramp up studying for the last 3 exams as they are more intense.  My PA course is 4 weeks plus exam practice at the end, so a total of 5-6 weeks.  I think PPD and PDD will take 2 months of study each.

    Site planning and design handbook, Problem Seeking, Sun, Wind & Light all are good resources, along with ADA and few other government websites.

    You may want to weave in materials for 2 exams into 2-3 months of study, depending on what order you take the exams, because these exams overlap.

    Hope this helps!

    Pa is a tough one. It goes all over the place some even think it may be the hardest exam.  Saying that Rebeka for StepUp really helped me quantify the exam materials.   I would really recommend the PA course from StepUp Architecture.

    Good Luck
