Please I Need your advice about two of the areas tested in the exam
I have taken this exam twice and I failed on the same following areas:
* Programming & analysis
* Environmental, Social & Economic Issues
I need your advice on what else I could study or could be included in these two areas. I am studying Ballast (all chapters related with CD, Programming, Environment), Kaplan, ADA, History, Preservation, Sustainability.....
Mostly in the area of "Environmental, Social & Economic Issues"....I think this area is related with Sustainability.
Please I need your help!! I am taking this exam in 3 weeks and I can not fail again!!!!
I appreciate your suggestions.....Thank you very much
mafalda, there are no words to describe how much you and i are in the same place in time! i too have failed this booger twice, and am looking forward to round three so i can slay the beast, once and for all. it is my last exam, and it will truely be my last exam in may because i am not going to take it AGAIN!
i also suffered from the same content areas as you did. i am trying to focus on programming and analysis right now so i have a clearer understanding on the concepts. i am also going to review the ballast sections, i bought the ballast manual in december for the SPD exam and it was very helpful. i think the last key to success will be the ballast QA book. the kaplan QA book just doesnt dig deep enough into the subject matter and make you think intuitively like what the exam itself is.
any other ideas would be helpful, if you have come up with any nuggets yourself.

Thanks! Great resource sbyrktct.
These are posted on my profile page... among other things.
Dueingx4 - Thank you so much for your suggestions. It is good to know that someone understands your frustration feelings too!! I do not have the Ballast QA book, I will try to purchase it. Good luck to you too!!! We will pass this one this time
Sbyrktct - Thank you so much for your help and suggestions always!!. This two sites look very good. I will read them
Sbyrktct - how do I access to your profile page? Would you please let me know? Thanks
Dueingx4 - the Ballast sections on Programming are in my opinion better than Kaplan (Chapters 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6), also the CD chapters (25 thru 29). I did not study these Ballast sections in my previous PPP, but I did read them for BDCS and they are good!!
I found your profile page Sbrktct. It is very good. Thanks
"Problem seeking" is the book by Pena,
also if you look into my profile, you'd see more Info.
