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. 

Here’s my photos.

All of these pictures came from my Instagram feed: YoungArchitxPDX Feel free to add me.

I’ve been standing here smiling for 6 hours. I guess I have to come back again on Monday. #keepsmiling #ihaveallthetimeintheworld #killme #exhausted #halfwaythere

Quit reading every single blog post, worrying about how long it will take to complete all your exams, asking a million questions and GET STARTED FUCKING STUDYING!!!! #whatanarchitectdoes #architectexam #doersandtalkers #shutup #takeaction

My friend Michael Ermann sent me a copy of his acoustics book! It’s really well done, tons of awesome sketches illustrating acoustical concepts! That’s his style.

This poor construction site has had a really rough winter. Every morning molls and I watch them get pounded by rain while pumping water out of the holes they dug to pour footings. This is the building that will replace the gypsy, so it doesn’t matter what they build. It will still be a 100% improvement to the neighborhood. #winterconstruction

Happy Birthday to the number one person in my life, #MollyRiscica I love you Molls! If she looks brighter, it’s because she is. I gave her a bath, cleaned her ears, gave her a massage and bought her a new soccer ball! #Birthdaygirl #dogbirthday ?❤️??⚽️???

It’s Tony Robbins day, I taught a Tony Robbins inspired yoga class this morning!

Chillin with my peeps at The Tony Robbins event! #tonyrobbinstour

We didn’t choose architecture so we could sit around and complain about the way things should be. #takeaction #shutup #dothework

King Tony Robbins!

Visited the Portland Building today for a meeting and saw all my City friends!

I know. I love you too Portland!

I had too much fun today hanging out today with Eric Corey Freed. He had a ton of great insights to share about architecture for the Young Architect Podcast! #whatanarchitectdoes #organicarchitect #ericcoreyfreed

These two… My business coach, my yoga instructor, my best friends, the believers in me and what I want to do. I just had such an inspiring day today with Jill and Michael Knouse and a powerful group of 20 amazing Entrepreneurs. Sooo grateful for #teamknouse and everything they do.

I know. I love you too Portland.

This is my last winter. I’m sick of fighting against being cold. My body just isn’t made for this. Everyday I ask myself why I’m not on a beach laying in the sun, telling jokes and enjoying my life. ??????☃️????

Hey Molls, sit on this wall so I could take a picture of you. #mollyriscica #labradors4life #labstagram

I had a fantastic chat this morning with my good friend Jared Smith @architectowl about architecture, fatherhood, confidence and NOMA for The Young Architect Podcast! #whatanarchitectdoes #architectowl #nyitarchitecture #nycarchitect

Not only does this dog never miss an opportunity to visit the laundry room, but she also helps me keep my clothes wrinkle free while I prep them to get hung up! #dogswhodolaundry #mollyriscica #labslife
