    Hey Dante,

    Check out the reference matrix on page 177 of the ARE 5.0 Handbook. The matrix lists additional resources that can help you prepare for the Practice Management division. That being said, the AHPP is one of the best resources to use when preparing for the exam.

    Hi Nick,

    One question. Do you think you need to have many years of experience to pass these exams?

    Hi Dante, I just want to encourage you about the exams! I took PcM about a month ago, which was my first exam and passed it on the first try and I had only about 3 1/2 months of experience at that point. Obviously everyone is different and each exam requires different knowledge, but I feel that I wouldn't have passed PcM without studying, even if I would've had a few years experience. But, since my experience is limited and I feel that experience would probably be helpful in certain exams, right now I'm focusing on the exams that deal mostly with contracts b/c I can learn that stuff on my own. Anyways, just wanted to give my perspective!

    Hey Dante,

    Ruth's response above is spot on. Everyone is different when it comes to testing. Some individuals can take and pass the exams with no experience, while others need 5+ years of experience to pass.

    My recommendation would be to review the the ARE 5.0 Handbook first, and if you feel comfortable with the content of a specific division, take that exam first. For example, if you feel like you have a great handle on the content within Programming & Analysis, go ahead and sign up for that division. 

    Final comment, there are individuals with limited experience that pass these exams everyday, so be confident in yourself and you will do well! Best of luck as you begin testing!
