I AM AN ARCHITECT. I can't thank this group enough for the support and guidance along this path to licensure.
A couple things to note. The biggest thing to remember isn't occupancy counts, it's not ADA clearances, it's not structural diagrams, it's not modulus of elasticity, it's not site planning, it's not sustainability, it's not acoustics, it's definitely not contracts. The biggest thing to remember is that YOU CAN DO THIS.
The second piece to remember is that FAILURE IS PART OF THE PROCESS. In some cases, failing an exam can actually be more helpful in your career than passing one because you will master the content forwards and backwards. Failure is part of our process. As architects, we have been trained to deal with failure and we know how to pick ourselves back up, shake it off, and try again.
The last thing is about content. I studied using Black Spectacles (videos and practice exams), AHPP, Ballast, Amber Videos, Building Construction Illustrated, Building Codes Illustrated, Architects Studio Companion, and Designer Hacks (practice exams only).
Believe in yourself and keep going. Trust me, it's all worth it when you can say the words, I AM AN ARCHITECT.
