    Study Building Construction Illustrated and consult Building Science Corporation.  They are a great resource for all things insulation, flashing, siding, etc.

    Do we need to know the different types of insulations?

    You should know the major categories of insulation, like rigid insulation and Batt insulation, etc.

    You should also know the relationships of the thickness of the insulation and the framing member size, i.e., you cannot put R-30 insulation inside a 2x6 wall. The ARE exam questions should have all the information there, you just need to know what to look for.
