PA,\nPPD, and PDD also have some overlapping information, so these are good to\nbundle together as well. My goal was to complete all of the exams within the\nyear, so I set a pretty strict testing schedule for myself in order to\naccomplish that. I gave myself about 4-5 weeks to study for each of the smaller\ntests (PcM, PjM, CE, and PA), and around 6-8 weeks for the larger two tests\n(PPD and PDD) since they had so much more material to review.
