Video – The ARE Boot Camp

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 offers a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with, and accountability. To help you study for the Architect Exam, the program is organized similarly to a design studio.

We recently started accepting applications for sessions that are beginning in January and February 2018 for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam. 

I made a quick video explaining the ARE Boot Camp. Please feel free to comment below or email me with your questions

    I recommend starting with 4.0 and taking the CDS PPP and SPD Exams. If you get stuck in the middle of the transition you will not lose those exams. All ARE study material will also need to be rewritten and it may take awhile for that to happen. Right now is the best time to ever take an ARE 4.0 Exam.

Mike – This seems like a great idea. Part of the problem I’ve found in my area (Buffalo, NY) is that there are people at all levels of progress through the ARE. It can be difficult to get people motivated as a unit because someone’s taking CDS, another is taking SS, and so on. Good luck with the program.
