The American Institute of Architects (A.I.A.), Cleveland and Akron chapters are proud to announce the 2013-14 Architectural Registration Exam (A.R.E.) Study Session Series for all future architects. The series consists of 6 A.R.E. study sessions. These sessions will cover the NCARB review guides in-depth with explanation of how to approach and solve multiple choice and the practice exam vignettes, applicable project experience, relevant concept definitions, and open question time will also be provided. 

The ARE currently consists of seven divisions that can be taken in any order. Exams include a combination of multiple-choice, check-all-that-apply, and fill-in-the-blank questions and graphic vignettes. Individual exam guides and exam practice programs are available in the Preparing for the ARE section on NCARB's website

Participants must bring a laptop with downloaded software for the vignette session only, on April 12th. This session will be a working session reviewing the vignettes for all exams. Vignettes will not be covered as part of the other study sessions.

Sessions are lead by experienced registered architects and engineers who have generously given their time to share their knowledge. Vocon is graciously hosting all sessions at 3142 Prospect Ave E, Cleveland, OH 44115

Lunch will be provided for all with the support of ImaginIT Technologies | Enabling Engineering Innovation 

Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.

Presentations and NCARB handouts will be printed by SE Blueprint,Inc of Cleveland and Akron. 

Registration also includes attendance to group informal study sessions to be held at Lakewood Public Library twice a month. Meeting information will be emailed upon registration.

Please come prepared with a basic understanding of the test and questions for the leaders.
