    Hi Juan!

     

    Ballast is a large manual/textbook that covers all of the ARE exams. It's one of the highly recommended resource from NCARB. My office provided this to the test takers in my office, but I bet you could find a copy on Amazon or somewhere online.

     

    I loved Black Spectacles, but again, my office paid for my subscription, so I'm not sure if I personally would have purchased it, but I firmly believe without the practice exams from Black Spectacles, I personally would not have passed. A lot of people like Designer Hacks as a different source for practice questions. I didn't use, but a lot of other people have said they liked it.

     

    Amber Books - Here is the link to sign up with a group of 6, so you can get the discount! ($220 per month, instead of $370 per month)

    Best of luck studying!
