    Only for the practice exams, I didn't find the videos helpful or in depth on any of the topics.

    I also think exams are great in BS, but videos just stress on repeated topics (sustainability to be there #1 topic). Navigating through codes etc and understanding of codes is not clear in my opinion.

    I've passed the three exams I've taken so far on the first try using Black Spectacles for 95% of my prep material and plan to continue using it for the remainder. I believe in terms of helping you understand the range of topics and content you will need to know for each exam it is pretty spot-on. I've been able to just do a quick internet search or ask a senior team member in my firm on anything that I need extra help on.

    That being said, I think the way BS helps you really understand the types of questions NCARB will ask, as well as the critical thinking strategies to use when coming up with the best answer for a question, are extremely helpful. I'd suggest listening to a few of their podcast episodes to get a feel for their content/vibe if you're not sure you want to commit to the monthly membership.
