About the BDCS Practice Exams By PPI

The Building Design and Construction Practice Exams are designed to prepare you for every aspect of this exam division.

These practice exams from PPI have been updated to the 2009 International Building Code and include 155 sample problems that are presented in the same general formats as the questions on the exam. These sample question formats include multiple-choice, check-all-that-apply, and fill-in-the-blank.

In addition to the sample problems, this guide will include a sample vignettes that presents the issues related to the 3 vignettes required in this exam: the ramp/accessibility vignette, the stair design vignette and the roof plan vignette.

Finally, an 85-problem practice exam will be included that is intended to simulate the actual exam’s content area, length and level of difficulty. Part of this realistic practice exam also includes more practice vignettes relating to the ramp/accessibility vignette, the stair design vignette, and the roof plan vignette. Solutions to all questions on the practice exam and the vignettes are also provided at the end of the book.

The BDCS Practice Exams will also cover the primary content areas that NCARB has released. The 155 sample problems will be divided up by content area to help organize the material in a way that candidates can best understand.

For your reference, here are the primary content areas that will be covered on the SS exam and practice exams.
