    Lol, Mike. So true, so true.

    Morgan: really depends on how you go about it and your desired level of preparation. I went into the process expecting to fail a few exams and retake them, but if my goal had been to pass on the first try, I would have studied longer. There are all kinds of study guides and programs that offer different approaches. Take a look at a few and see if any match your learning style, temperament, and schedule. There’s information about a lot of the programs and study resources here in this forum. People make posts on what worked for them and what didn’t all the time. Reading them can help you plan and also just encourage you, even if your study is entirely self-directed and you don’t enroll in any particular program.

    Have you read the NCARB Handbook yet? It’s pretty helpful throughout the process.

    Once you start, I bet you’ll find your footing pretty quickly. Good luck!

    I wouldn't start with that exam; it's a difficult one!  This explains why and how many hours to study for each exam.  https://www.stepuparchitecture.com/faqs#TOtCMP.  15 hrs per week for about 6 weeks for the first 3 exams is good.

    As others have stated, it really depends on the person, how they retain information, and their familiarity with the topic in that exam. I probably studied around 5 total hours reading the Practice Management chapters in the ARE Review Manual twice. Then I'd search for topics I wasn't I didn't feel comfortable with on YouTube to try a different perspective. Here is a link to a Practice Management specific channel. I hope this helps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05uW9LNX6jM&list=PLjycQi4qboXsZYU5555ZTWyFKOUEuT_CQ
