Any feedback on the new exams? How did they adddress new formats; GreenFormat, BIM and IPD? I bet once they get the study materials straightened out it will be easier to study for.

I taught the fall study class here at the office pretty much straight out of the PRM and other study material. Here is some feedback from someone in our office that passed the CDT on the first try:

"I did not participate in the study sessions this time around, but did remember enough from the ones I attended earlier in the year to have a basis for focusing my study efforts. My method may not be recommended or conventional, but I, in essence, learned the 104 or so terms that are listed in one of the study materials, and referred to the PRM for additional background on each term, which often referenced other sections, which I read for additional context. I admittedly did not read all the modules, nor an entire module, for that matter. However, the list of 104 terms seem to be centered around the most heavily weighted modules like design and construction, and so provided a good basis for passing the exam. The exam did not go too deeply into IPD, BIM, and GreenBuilding, only a question per."
