ARE Book Reviews

Are you having trouble getting started or making progress on the Architect Exam?!?? Is the self-guided nature of the ARE not working for you?

Join our virtual study group. The ARE Boot Camp has a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with and hold you accountable. The program is organized similar to a "design studio", to help you study for the Architect Exam.

We recently started accepting applications for sessions beginning in May and June 2017  for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam.

How To Pass The Architecture Registration Exam

My recent book release of How To Pass The Architecture Registration Exam (AKA the ARE Book) has received an enormous response. Bigger than I have ever expected. It’s been selling really well, and almost daily I receive emails from ARE Candidates commending me and thanking me for creating this insightful ARE product.

Due to the overwhelming response I have received, I have started working on another, much larger ARE Product that will help candidates more efficiently and effectively move through their exams. Stay tuned to Young Architect for more information about that.

A few weeks ago when I was building a new webpage for the ARE Book, I decided to start giving away a free chapter to new subscribers of the Young Architect Weekly Newsletter. You too can sign up for the newsletter and get a link to download of a free chapter of How To Pass The Architecture Exam.

The ARE Book Reviews

Here are some of the reviews that I have received about the ARE Book:

“Michael, thank you!!! I have been procrastinating on taking this exam for several years. Being a single mother, I never thought I would be able to complete the ARE. After reading your book, I feel very informed with what is expected and know what I need to do to complete the process. I am very excited to take my first test in 2 weeks.”

Shannon S.
ARE Candidate

 

“How To Pass The Architecture Registration Exam puts a very real (and human) spin on the exam process. I found it to be extremely entertaining, motivational, and very informative at the same time.

Michael’s path and attitude remind me much of my own. I found a lot of things that I myself have said (sometimes repeatedly) to interns in my AIA chapter—with a great deal of fresh perspective that I had never considered.”

Sean Sheffler
Pennsylvania IDP Coordinator
ARE Counselor for AIA Pittsburgh

 

“I just wanted to tell you I just passed my first exam, and I couldn’t have done it without your blog and book. I’ve always been such a bad test taker, and I never thought I could actually pass one of these tests. I just wanted to say thank you!”

Courtney R.
ARE Candidate

“This book is not the “How To” in the typical sense. There are plenty of those out there. This gem talks you through how to decide when you’re ready to take the ARE and how to prepare yourself to pass, what that means, and why it’s important.”

Lora Teagarden
Licensed Architect
