    I understand your pain to me I don't understand why we are tested on running a firm when the majority of Architects won't own a firm. Why not make that a seperate test for those wanting to open a firm.

    I know it’s difficulty but I’m learning to stay positive. Btw, NCARB is responding to the public as well as clients of US architects who felt that architects today were not strong enough in business dealings or component in running the office.

    I’m learning to study to know as much as I possibly can to be more knowledgeable and valuable and not just pass a test. Focus on the larger goal of being more knowledgeable and valuable in the market place and career.

    Hope this helps.

    It seems that the impetus for the 2 exams was the recent recession and the fact that many architects went into business for themselves during the downturn in the construction industry and the large number of layoffs and downsizings many firms had to do. I look at it as the tests are to prepare future architects so they have that option if there's another economic event that results in the high unemployment rate of the 2000s
