Hi, all -

Please make sure that you reference the applicable content outline for the P3 exam, as it contains not only exactly what's on the exam, but also the books that the exam questions come from. There are three references on this exam, and if you're studying only one of them, you'll be missing crucial content.

You can search for the P3 content outline on this page.

Best of luck to you, and please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have questions.

I'm wondering if anybody else is having the same problem I'm having with this exam. I've taken it 4 times without a passing score. To give a little history; I took the 2015 P2 Comm. Plumbing Inspectors exam in April of 2018, passed on the first try, I then studied the 2015 IPC for 6 weeks and sat for the 2015 P3 Plumbing Plans Examiner exam and failed with a 63. So, I then purchased the 2015 IPC flash cards, studied them along with my IPC code book. I studied what "ICC"s graph show I lacked knowledge in. I then sat for the 2015 P3 exam and failed it again with a 68. I got a graph to show what I needed to study for. I decided to continue to study the 2015 IPC, flash cards and get out my 2015 IRC and sit for the 2015 P2 Residential Plumbing Inspectors exam. I passed this test first try in December 2018. I then decided to continue with the studying of the 2015 IPC. I obtained a 2015 ICC IPC study guide. So, now I have the 2015 IPC, the 2015 IPC flash cards and a 2015 IPC study guide. I sat for the P3 exam a third time April 2019 and failed with a 70.  I looked at the graph provided by ICC. This time what I did well in I failed and what I did poor in I passed. So I studied what I was lacking knowledge in and decided to take it "ONE WEEK" later. I just finished the P3 exam May 4th, 2019 and failed with a 70. This time the graph was pretty much even. What's going on ?
