    I gathered this about the power behind RFI's, speaking about "small firms"; however, nothing about the suggested "policy".  So I am getting now more confused and could use some guidance.  TY!

    Here is another very similar question from: "unknown source".

    Your firm has just finished a large project with a new engineering consultant, to assure more work with said firm, what would be wise to do with the new team (select 3)?

    1. Review payout system
    2. Review Quality Assurance Plan
    3. Review Communication Systems
    4. Sign new contract
    5. Have a “Third Party” review the work quality
    6. Review engineering options:

      • Payout systems are minor
      • There isn’t enough information to be signing new contracts?
      • Let the engineers review engineering options for a possible new project? 

    B, C, & E are my choices, and I'm concrete with them; now, how can I find more question, or a staple section in AHPP that cannot yet find, to help us with our choice selections?

    To your first question, the one on quality management. . . .

    the correct three answers are:

    A project team meeting at the completion of each phase

    In-house third-party document review

    Completion of in-house deliverable checklist

    See here for an explanation

    Happy studying.

    See page 27 of the NCARB ARE 5 handbook for correct answers and rationale. You really should start your study from the NCARB ARE 5 handbook.

    When you do these questions for the first time, it is a good idea to use a separate paper to write down the answers and mark the wrong answers. These wrong answers indicate your weakness, and you need to spend more time to read study materials on these sections. Focus on studying the materials and actually learn the information that NCARB wants you to master. The handbook questions and mock exam questions can help you focus on the right information.

    You need to make sure you can answer all handbook questions right and understand the related rationale. For the mock exams that you have done so far, you should do the same and make sure you can answer them correctly to reach 100% before the real ARE exam.  If you run into a questions similar to the ones in the handbook or any mock exam, these are gift points and you need to make sure you nail them all.

    Nice! I just shared in a phone conversation with a reputable representative from ncarb; and she said the same thing.  Interesting, since this is my 3rd rolling window, it is very interesting that I physically got these answers correct last year, and overlooked them because of the all the outside resources being sold today by 3rd parties, and I am sure it the head trauma that comes with getting unanswered results.

    This is great advise Gang, you will see better results from me pushing forward next month; at least I can only hope this advise proves worth.  Again, thank you for participating, as we all are aware you do have to do this.  Respectfully Yours, pec
