I just made a lengthy video for exam strategy passing the Construction & Evaluation Exam after reviewing the great content and discussion here at the ARE 5.0 Community -- and also purchasing way too many exam study resources to finally pass all exams in 10 months.
I will summarize: I thought this exam was going to be easy as it had 3 suggested resources to read, and a few AIA Contract Documents, however, I learned that I needed a rigorous amount of understanding to pass this exam that was found in my study resources.
Here are the resources I purchased before my first attempt:
1 ARE Facebook Group + Young Architect tips (occasional Black Spectacles) and NCARB guide
2 Archiprep (free month)
3 ARE Exam Prep
4 70% of the NCARB reading list ($$ business expenses worth $$$fails)
Here are resources I purchased post first attempt, passing on second attempt:
5 Designer Hacks, PPD, PDD, and manufacturer data (especially fire construction) 6 The Amber Book
7 Archiprep 1 month
I watched tons of videos for the exam, but I often tried to focus on a particular exam, so if you have an ARE playlist for CE, definitely feel free to add this.
