    The best ones I saw were in the ARE 5.0 Handbook, but of course there's only a few. They are the only ones I saw that truly replicated how the test makes you consider the information. Black Spectacles and DesignHacks from what I saw were closer to memorization for the most part, with a few questions that require deeper judgement. I wouldn't say they were bad, because any practice is good, but just remember when you are taking the practice tests that they most likely aren't the same as the actual test. 

    All that said, I used Black Spectacles practice exams nearly every day when I was in the last week of studying for each exam, and found it to be a useful way of memory recall, and putting myself in a testing scenario. It also showed me where my blind spots were so I could focus my efforts in the last week where it counted most. I'm sure most other practice tests would do the same, but I did not try Architect Exam Prep, and the Hyperfine questions I used (they might be different now) were intentionally much more involved than an actual test question. 

    Best of luck!

    Hyperfine mock exam has case study which is very similar to real exam!

    Hey Ashley,

    Glad to hear we're one of the test prep providers you're considering! I totally understand how going with one provider over another can be a difficult decision, and sometimes it can be ideal to go with multiple. If you have any questions about Black Spectacles specifically, feel free to reach out. More than happy to help.

    Best of luck on PA!

    Hang,

    Did you get the Hyperfine mock exams with the courses or were they separate?  I purchased the courses but did not see the mock exams in the package with the courses.

    Hey all,

    Hyperfine is questions, but it's not a practice test/mock exam like what you might be looking for. There is also no case study for the PA course, though there is one for PPD/PDD.
