Code and regulations sections across divisions

Postby rodom2 » Fri Dec 08, 2017 12:28 pm

With CDS, the code and regulations section makes up 9% -11% of the exam. PPP has a Codes and Regulations section that is 11% -17% of the exam. SPD has a similar section as well. My question is this: With your experience, would studying the codes and regulations sections of PPP and SPD help with the codes section on CDS? When I failed CDS, the only section I did poorly on was codes. What other resources could be suggested to help with this section?

thanks!

For Code, I think that IBC 2012 chapters 3,5 and 10 are the most useful as well as the ADA code. I think that makes up most of the codes used on the exam. There may be some zoning questions in PPP and SPD, but I don't remember them coming up in CDS. A lot of people use Building Codes Illustrated by Frank Ching and I'm sure it's an excellent source.
