Structurals for PDD

Structurals for PDD

Postby macgyver » Wed Apr 04, 2018 3:03 pm

Hey All,
Any recommendations for studying for the Structural portion of the PDD test? I heard about the David Thaddeus seminar, but looks to be a lot of information and I don't have time to watch that many videos. I'm currently using Amber-Book which helped me pass my last test (PPD), but there isn't a lot of structures in his videos. One test to go!
Thanks!

I just took PDD last week but failed. There really not a lot of actual structural calculations on the exam. But I do have some other type of calculations and it took some time, which is why I couldn't finish the test. :(

I haven't taken PDD yet but I have found these YouTube videos by Dilip Khatri to be very helpful.

Guy has a total "strict dad" vibe, but the videos are very useful.
