Our PDD flashcards combine the familiarity of those you used as a kid, with some pretty sweet features you’ll appreciate as an aspiring architect. Flip through them like traditional flashcards if repetition is your thing. You can also customize your experience. Review, shuffle, and mark cards as mastered. Even make your own. For those feeling extra motivated, each card links to a video lecture if you want to dive deeper. Best of all, you can do it all from the comfort of your phone.
Designed for future architects, by current architects, these flashcards cover it all – from what a “K Factor” is to the difference between “sensible” and “latent” heat. All concepts, content, words, and objectives featured in the cards were hand-picked with PDD test questions in mind. Basically if it’s on the exam, it’s on these cards.
