Nice job, man! I think that makes you 4 for 4, no?
Question: is Sun, Wind and Light a worthy read for PA?

Thanks, Xnok -- it was #4 for me (no transition).
I think that book is more for PPD. The matrix puts it there, but it's not req'd for PA.
Also, on a slightly different note, I've found that the ARE5.0 reference materials listed at the end of each section -- and not the longer list at the very end of the handbook, is a pretty accurate "short list" of what's absolutely necessary. I've also found value in the Ballast material.
What have you taken so far?

Right behind you. Passed PcM, PjM and CE.
The reason I specifically ask about SWL is that it's not on the NCARB Handbook shortlist but one of the sample questions references it as the primary source. It's a very difficult read, imho.

I noticed that as well about the sample question referencing a book not listed. It's not the only question like that -- it occurs at least one other time in another section as well.
I didn't read SW and L for PA -- the Site Planning and Design Handbook was more to the point for PA -- Chapters 1-4, and 7-9, if I were to recommend a resource. And Problem Seeking to some extent. Know the "high points" of the code and ADA. I also read some Ballast -- and the Ballast practice exams seem to help. And, as I'm sure you know -- this forum is great for 4.0, but not where you need to be for 5.0.
