Hi, I’ve been having issues with poor wording in the practice exams, in general. For CE Exam 2:
Three months into construction, the contractor submits a sample, shop drawings, field measurements, and product data. Which of these should the architect reject?
Incorrect. Shop drawings are submitted to inform the architect how the contractor intends to meet the design intent.
Correct. Field measurements are not submittals.
Incorrect. Product data are submitted for the architect to verify performance requirements.
Incorrect. Samples are submitted as benchmarks.
Shops, product data, and samples can all be rejected on terms of not conforming to the contract documents. There isn’t any reason to reject field measurements, although they can be ignored.
I’ve been noticing a huge amount of questions that are exceptionally unclear in wording, causing me to second guess myself in order to try and get a correct answer. I’m more concerned in the PDD and PPD exams, which should have more objective questions but still see an exceptional amount of overly subjective questions and poor wording.
