Did Not Pass

Postby EvaML » Thu Jun 07, 2018 12:14 pm

CDS has been the bane of my existence. I have retaken this exam too many times to count.
I have no problem with the vignette. Used the practice exams with Kaplan, Ballast, Designer Hacks I've scored well above 80%, but when it comes to sitting for the exam all the language becomes muddy and so unspecific.

Working full time and finally in a 'supportive' office that allows some time off for studying was no use.

I have Passed SD, PPP, SPD

Heart Broken.

Have you used the Schiff Hardin lectures in conjunction with the free AIA documents available through NCARB? These are critical for passing the multiple choice.

5.0 format may also help you. It's less in the weeds (at least PA).

Good luck and don't give up!
