The book includes 200 questions and simulates the real exam in every aspect, including scope, difficulty level, format, and number of questions in each LEED category. It includes questions, answers, and explanations.

If AREForum is down again…

January 13, 2014

If AREForum.org is down again, you can use this forum as an alternate:

http://www.GeeForum.com/

It has all the functions of AREForum.org, and has more options.

Our unique feature: We have not only ARE Forums, but LEED forums as well.

I think LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is one of the most important trends of development and is revolutionizing the construction industry. It has gained tremendous momentum and has a profound impact on our environment.

In fact, NCARB has quietly incorporated a lot of LEED content into EACH of the ARE division without using the term LEED. Just read the scope of exam for each ARE division, and you’ll know.

ARE Mock Exam series by ArchiteG, Inc.

Time and effort is the most valuable asset of a candidate. How to cherish and effectively use your limited time and effort is the key of passing any exam. That is why we publish the ARE Mock Exam series to help you to study and pass the ARE exams in the shortest time possible. We have done the hard work so that you can save time and money. We do not want to make you work harder than you have to.

Do not force yourself to memorize many numbers. Read through the numbers a few times, and you should have a very good impression of them.

You need to make the judgment call: If you miss a few numbers, you can still pass the exam, but if you spend too much time drilling these numbers, you may miss the big pictures and fail the exam.

The official NCARB sample MC questions have no explanations, and the official NCARB sample vignettes have no step-by-stepsolutions. The existing ARE practice questions or exams by others are either way too easy or way over-killed. They do NOT match the real ARE exams at all.

We have done very comprehensive research on the official NCARB guides, many related websites, reference materials, and other available ARE exam prep materials. We match our mock exams vignettesquestions as close as possible to the NCARB samples and the real ARE exams instead. Some readers had failed an ARE exam two or three times before, and they eventually passed the exam with our help.

All our books include a step-by-stepsolution to each of the NCARB sample vignette with screenshots and related NCARB software commands, a complete set of MC questions (except for the SD AREmock exam) and vignettes matching the real ARE exams, including number of questions, format, type of questions, etc. We also include detailed answers and explanations to our MC questions, and a step-by-step solution to each of the mock vignettes with screenshots and related NCARB software commands. Our DWG files for our mock exam vignettes can also be installed and used with the NCARB software.

There is some extra information on AREoverviews and exam-taking tips in Chapter One. This is based on NCARB AND other valuable sources. This is a bonus feature we included in each book because we want our readers to be able to buy our ARE mock exam books together or individually. We want you to find all necessary ARE exam information and resources at one place and through our books.

We have done very comprehensive research on the official NCARB guides, many related websites, reference materials, and ARE exam prep materials by our competitors. We intentionally make our mock exams easier than some of our competitors’, and match our questions as close as possible to the NCARB samples and the real ARE exams instead. This is based on our readers and candidates feedbacks because these competitors’ materials are way over-killed and do not match the real ARE exams at all. Many people at various study groups also indicated that they did extremely poor on these competitors’ practice exams and felt devastated. They gave up the competitors’ materials and used our ARE mock exams and related materials instead, and they ended up passing the ARE exams on the first try. Some other readers used competitors’ materials and failed an ARE exam two or three times, and they eventually passed the exam with our help.
