Brightwood (Kaplan) 5.0 PPD Study Guide

Hi all,

Has anyone used the Brightwood (Kaplan) 5.0 PPD Study Guide? I'm using it now and seems there are quite a few calculations, however I thought PPD wasn't very calc. heavy?

I just took PPD today. More calcs than I thought there would be....mostly simple calcs like figuring out allowable areas, costs of lights...at least 1 complex structural calc that I was not expecting on this exam.

Cool. But no like, 'Find the foot lambert of the wall" or "calculate the noise absorbtivity of this system" ?

I don't want to spend all this time memorizing acoustical logarithmic equations lol...

Thanks.

Yeah, rennert please clarify a little- life cost analysis isn't so bad but what about calcs for things that require equations? and what kind of structural? like to what extent
