    I am using it right now. I signed up for the bundle, then canceled the software package, but kept the ARE 5.0 study guide. I like the videos - they helped me fill in gaps between my reading and professional knowledge.

    Thanks for the insight. Is there an option to get only the ARE 5.0 study guide?

    Thank you for this. Are you preparing to take practice management soon? How much time you give yourself?

    Take a look at the black spectacles sample video, and that will be just like the rest of the series.

    My exam is scheduled for next week. I gave myself one month to study.

    1 hour each weekday, 4 hours Sat, 4 hours Sun (more time if I have the weekend to myself).

    I'm still trying to gather resource materials; so I'm learning, studying and prepping as I ramp up to the exam.

    I took the same approach as you did.  I am now reading the Architects Handbook of Professional Practice, BIM in Construction, the Agency concept (law for architects) and forms of association. I am waiting for the marketing book for architects. Exam end of January.

    Good luck for next week Richard

    Black Spectacles: good quality, clean and concise format, and consistent. AIA discounts are available with a promo code, if you're a member.

    • Don't purchase this subscription. The content doesn't align with the ARE 5.0 exam. I subscribed to Black Spectacles (B.S.) to prepare for PcM and PjM. After completing my second ARE under 5.0, I've realized that these video lessons did not align with the exam content.

    See Study Strategies for other useful resources.
