Hey Jonathan,

My best advise in order to pass the R3 is to purchase the purchase the online study guide and do both the practice quiz & exam. A section that I found most difficult to understand is brace wall panels and brace wall lines (IRC 602.10). For this one it isn't just enough to know where things are, but how to apply the formula given in the IRC to the question. For example they will give you a situation where you are required to determine the required length in a brace wall line that is required to be brace wall panels. So if you have that section mastered and can navigate the rest of the IRC I would say you are ready for the R3 exam. 

Before I had my R3 certification I had my Permit Technician and Residential Building Inspector Certification. It did take me two tries for me to get the R3 cert though. So don't get discouraged if you don't pass the first time. As of today I have passed 7 ICC certifications and the Residential Plans Examiner has been the toughest so far to pass for me!

Aloha all: 

I have been studying for the R3 Residential Plans Examiner Certification Exam using the Outline for this exam on the website by reading the applicable sections and familiarizing myself where things are in the 2018 IRC and was wondering if there any study guides for the 2018 IRC R3 Residential Plans Examiner Certification and/or if anybody has any tips for passing.

I am not too familiar with using a webcam either so was wondering what is a good app to use for that.

Thanks in advance and I would be so grateful for any tips to passing that anybody might have.
