    Based on other posts read, if we have 6 people, the price goes down to $190 per month.  This also seems to be the quickest way to study, its highly recommended in the ARE 5.0 community, and rated much higher than black spectacles.

    Including myself, I'll need 5 names with an email address if interested!

    Hi Joseph, If we are able to find 6 people for the $190/month rate I would be interested in doing this. I have an exam next Thursday morning so would need to sign up ASAP.  kellyduignan [at] gmail [dot] com.  Thanks!

     I don't mean to hijack this topic/thread. I have a question on about how long it takes to get your College transcript approved? Nothing weird with my Education path NAAB School for both B. Arch. and M. Arch. I am working on my study schedule so just curious.

    It has been a while since I verified mine, but I think mine took a week or two?  I imagine this could vary depending on your school and Admissions office though.

    Thanks Kelly. Yep, my school sent it out last week. But 2-3 weeks isn’t bad. I have a friend taking their CPA and they said it took 6-8 weeks to verify.

    Call them. I had mine sent and then it took a while so I called NCARB. They said they hadn't received it, I told them to check again and then they said they found it...

    Hey guys!

    So far we have:

    1) Joe Stainbrook (myself)

    2) Christopher Rawlins

    3) Dawn Turner

    4) Kelly Duignan

    Todd- if you and you're friend are game, we will have our 6.  I imagine we will probably have 6 by the end of the day and I'll send off the email to Amber with everyone copied.  Even if we get more than 6, everyone should get the deal.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Joseph!

    Also, Todd, the Amber website says that your group does not all have to start at the same time if you're not all ready together.

    Thanks everyone for the responses!  I've heard good things and we should save some money here. 

    You should all be receiving an email from me regarding the Amber Book (cut off at Pylinet@gmail.com).  Hopefully we receive feedback here soon and can start with the material.

    Happy studying and good luck!

    Hi Mariam

    You can email Amber Books and let them know you want to be part of the group. We have till the end of the month to add people. You can probably just reference my name and link to this thread to get the discount. Let me know if that works for ya

    Has anyone had trouble with the videos?  I had my start date set for Sunday but haven't received a link for the videos....

    Hi Guys. Have you heard back from Amber with your inquiries? I emailed them on Friday and asked to be included in Joseph’s group but haven’t heard back.

    Hi Mariam,

    I emailed Amber last Friday as well, but I haven't heard back.

    Joseph - thanks for initiating with your e-mails. I had my start date set for Friday and did receive a link for the videos on Friday afternoon.

    Thanks for the info Kelly-  I'm assuming I'll get the video link later today (they did say to allow 48hrs after purchase)...requesting a Sunday start was probably a bad idea on my part.

    Hi all - I e-mailed Amber on Saturday referencing Joseph's name but have not yet heard back.

    Joseph - Is there something else that we should include in our communication with Amber when requesting to be added to an existing group? Thank you.

    Hi Hyon

    I would just give them a couple days to respond.  If you have already referenced my name, you should be fine.

    The following is a direct quote from Amber Book in an email they sent me -

    All,

    Please note that if anyone else would like to join this group, they will need to contact us by June 30th.

    The Amber Team

    All

    Hopefully you all were able to start studying with Amber Book and save some money!

    Just wanted to clarify- yesterday was the last day to add people to the group.  Anyone reading this will have to start a new group!

    Thanks and happy studying!
