    Just took and passed the BC module. I took this one first because I was most familiar with all of these code books. Now I don't know which module to take next as I have not read these other books. Which one is the easiest of the remaining two exams?

    Take the management, it is a decent primer for the legal module.

    Congrats!

    Any pointers for those 3 exams to share?

    How many books did you take into the exam room for each?

    Way back in the 97 UBC days, I hauled in about eight books to take the legal/management. The testing center gave me two workstations for my references.

    I took like 7 books for the building module, 5 for management module and 4 for legal module.

    tip #1. You should actually have the book “budgeting guide” BEFORE you take the exam. Probably helpful if you read it too.
