2021 Black Friday Sales for ARE Candidates

Ahhh good ol Black Friday…

With 2022 right around the corner, what a great time to stock up on ARE Study Materials for 2022! To make things easier for you, I have created this round up post of all the important Black Friday sales that you need to be aware of.

Young Architect personally endorses ALL of these products because we have watched them consistently deliver results. 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

*Disclosure: I only recommend products I would use myself and all opinions expressed here are our own. This post may contain affiliate links that at no additional cost to you, I may earn a small commission on.  


The ARE Drills PPD/PDD

Early November 2021, Team Young Architect released a new game changing product for PPD/PDD called The ARE Drills. It’s a thoughtful blend of NCARB styled exam questions, paired with more casual conceptual based questions focused on concepts. 

It even includes over 8 hours of video thoroughly breaking down and explaining every question. 

Timing: The ARE Drills is regularly priced at $79, but is currently discounted to $59 until Monday November 29th – No coupon code required.

The Amber Book Black Friday Sale

This Black Friday Amber Books is discounting their product $170 off per month, each month, so you will be billed $220 per month. The discount code is YABF21  This discount is $20/month cheaper than if you organized your own group discount.

YES, You can sign up now to lock in the low rate, pause it and reactivate it when you’re ready to get started with Amber Book. No need to sign up with a group of people or email back and forth with Amber Book Staff.

It’s no secret that I am a very big fan of the Amber Book. It has been used by many ARE Boot Campers and ARE Facebook Group Members to pass ARE 5.0 exams. Click here to read the review I wrote about Amber Book.

Getting Started With The ARE in 2022 Webinar

This lecture is very different from the presentations that NCARB or other organizations give about the ARE. It’s a real-world, truth-filled presentation that will help you start making immediate progress with this exam. This event is open to EVERYONE! This is a beginner/just getting started ARE Lecture. We talk PPD/PDD strategy in the big picture and don't get to detailed.

The Webinar will be on Thursday, December 9th, 2021 at 7pm ET; 6 pm CT; 5 pm MT; 4 pm PT and is typically about 2 hours – 1 hour 30 minutes lecture + 30 min Q&A. Use the discount code: BLACKFRIDAY for 50% off the webinar ticket price.
