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 September and October 2017  for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam. 

Here’s my photos.

All of these pictures came from my Instagram feed: YoungArchitxPDX

Mile 401 - Last night I slept behind a church in Christiansburg Virginia and slept great! Showed up after it was dark and left shortly after the sun was up. I pulled the picnic table into the darkness so no one would see me and then moved it back when I left. #nothomeless #camping #leavenotrace #biketouring #biketouringlikeaboss #gameon

I rolled into Knoxville Tennessee tonight at 8pm and rode 103 miles for the day. I'm super proud of myself. This almost didn't happen after a long day of heat and an annoying headwind. Then I got inspired to see my friends in Knoxville and caught my second wind. HUGE Thank You to google maps today. They did a beautiful job navigating me across Tennessee and showing me some of the best country roads a cross country cyclist could ever ask for. I love you Tennessee! I can't believe I made it to Knoxville! #jonesboroughpolice #biketouring #transamerica #biketouringlikeaboss #100mileday #90degreeheat #headwinds #allday #tired @royalstarr

Most cross country cyclists pepper spray the dogs that run at them and just keep riding. This is the very worst way to handle the situation and it makes the dog problem worse for the next cyclist. The correct thing to do is stop riding, acknowledge the dog, wait for them to stop barking and slowly start riding away. After completing two coast2coast bike rides, being in the middle of my 3rd, and having hundreds of dogs charge at me, I HAVE NEVER COME CLOSE TO PEPPER SPRAYING A DOG! Cyclists pepper spraying dogs is completely unnecessary and is for the amateurs. It makes me sick. #dogsoftransamstagram #transam2016 #lovethedogs #dontpepperspraythem #asshole #throwawayyourhalt #halt #pepperspray #adventurecycling #bikepacking #diggitydog #respecttheroad #leavenotrace

I did it!! Just finished riding 100 miles in 100 degree heat! A million good things fell into place for me all day long. Today was one of the best days of cycling I have ever had. Super proud of myself! I got inspired to wrap up Tennessee and get back on the Transam. Tomorrow I'm crossing the Mighty Mississippi River, and will be swimming in the Ozarks in no time! I've been meeting some amazing people the past few days. Every time I need a little help, there is someone there to help me. My legs are getting warmed up for Kansas!!! #cantstopwontstop #transam2016 #biketouringlikeaboss #biketouring #biketour #bikepacking
