Michael Riscica has helped more than 250 ARE Candidates get started with making fast progress on taking their first Architect Exam with his popular ARE Boot Camp Program.
Michael’s approach to Getting Started With ARE 5.0 has been verifiably successful with the popular ARE Boot Camp.
After the amazing success of the ARE Boot Camp – with more than 250 young architects going through the program – we have discovered an effective study method that anyone can use to pass these exams.
The 'Getting Started With ARE 5.0 Video Program' is a 10-week curriculum designed to help you study for the Architecture Exam – with greater concentration on what matters, and less stress!
"I lost too much time worrying about what material to use and reading lengthy textbooks before Michael's ARE program. Having a to do list, with specific chapters to read, made it a much better experience."
“With the structure of this program, I finished all exams within 11 months, and now I’m applying for registration with the state of Florida!” – Amanda G.
The self-guided test-taking process is the biggest challenge that ARE Candidates face.
When I took the ARE several years ago, I had many of the same issues and challenges that people are still struggling with today. Part of what inspired me to start YoungArchitect.com was sharing this information - how to study for these difficult exams, how to structure your time, how to track your activity, and how to decide what to work on next.
It’s not the content of these exams that makes them so difficult to take. It’s the discipline, determination, and motivation you need to keep plugging away at it year after year, until you’ve passed all six exams.

Pick One Exam To Focus On
When you start designing a new building on an empty site, do you begin by figuring out the interior paint colors, and worrying about the window and building envelope details?
No, not at all…….
You start by understanding the bigger picture, by investigating the shape of the building, and how it sits on the site. As you start to solve more problems and have more information, THEN you begin to slowly start to zoom in and get close to solving all the details.
The good news is, studying for the Architect Exam works exactly the same way.
Before we zoom into the detailed nature of the PcM, PjM and CE exams, its best that we build a foundation on the fundamentals of:
All of these topics are expanded upon greatly in Phase 2, however getting into the basics of each of these topics and seeing how they relate to each other is fundamental to success in ARE 5.0.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, the foundation period is about figuring out where you’ll find the time to do this work. If you don’t have the time to do this, then this course, any course or the best study materials are all useless.
The big part of the foundation is figuring out where you’ll find 8-15 hours of extra time after you’ve worked a 40 hour week.
At the end of Foundation you’ll take a close look at the three 5.0 exams, and decide which to take first:
Zoom Into The Details
During Phase 2 we will build onto the information studied during the first half, and start breaking down the details of whichever exam you have chosen to take.
More study materials will be required in phase 2, but this course will help you figure out what those are and how to use them.
At the end of Phase 2 we will discuss taking the exam you've chosen, and how to transition into taking your second exam.

From the people I see trying to short cut the process by doing the minimum they possibly can, or setting up unrealistic schedules, It ends up taking them much longer than if they just took the time to do it right.
I know for a fact that the education you receive studying for the Architect Exam will:
It certainly did for me.
“Getting organized was a huge feat for me and you really helped me figure this out. I was trying to figure my way around the ARE, but I was such a newbie coming into it, despite studying on my own for months prior. The program really helped give me a framework, and I didn’t feel lost and overwhelmed anymore."
