One of the best ways to ensure a passing grade on the PE exam is to ace the breadth section. If you're properly prepared for the breadth section, you'll have way more energy to tackle your depth section in the afternoon portion of the exam.
There are 3 books that stand out to me that will best prepare you to ace the breadth section, and the good news is that you can bring all of them into the exam with you!
A great strategy during your study prep is to tab the sections that are most helpful to you, so that when you're in the actual exam, you don't have to flip through the books to find what you're looking for, which wastes a lot of precious PE time.
