TDMM 12th edition Study Resources

RCDD and RITP exam preparation quizzes and flash cards

BICSI's Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual, also referred to as the TDMM, is currently in its 12th edition and is a comprehensive resource for the design of information technology systems (ITS). It is the primary reference source for BICSI's RCDD and RITP credentials.

NOTE: January 6, 2014

The 13th edition of the TDMM is now available from BICSI.

New exam applicants can choose to test from the 12th or 13th edition through June 30, 2014.

For any exam applications received after July 1, 2014, the 13th edition will be used.

Our Quizzes and Flash Cards allow you to confirm your understanding and knowledge retention. Questions are randomly selected from a database of questions and are not repeated within a quiz or set of flash cards. The number of questions is noted beside the chapter name. You can exit a quiz/set of flash cards at any time by closing the window in which it appears.

As always, we want you to 'try before you buy.' Chapter 1: Principles of Transmission is available below as a free sample.
