    Fundamentals of Building Construction, MEEB.
    These two books are really helpful for me to pass ppd and pdd. I didn’t use other materials.
    Also, time management is very important. Try to have at least one and half hour for the case studies.
    Good luck!

    I'd read the important chapters of the IBC entirely to get a broad overview of the code.  What books have you read?  I'd read Ballast a 2nd time too.  Read BCI and ASC. I would also do 2 hrs a day of practice exams for a period of 2 weeks before you retake the exam.  Review all questions you aren't 100% sure of and research all the questions you got wrong.

    Hope this helps & keep studying!

    I've read the mehta book front to back. And have been using a variety of books and study material, where I put a lot of time into it, understanding the concepts. 

    I will try to do what you mentioned thanks.
