    Your welcme!  I have already passed all my exams!  Thanks!  I’m an architect who is an ARE trainer.  I try to help as many folks out in this forum as possible.  PA is my fav.  And I definitely try to help people who haven’t gotten any other advice.

    Congrats again!  Are you almost done all the exams now?

    The net assignable area does not include mechanical rooms, stairways, elevator shafter, wall and structure thickness, etc.  The restrooms and storage may be shared or part of an individual storage space. 

    The rentable area will include a factor for shared storage, the foyer, (shared) circulation, mechanical rooms, elevator lobbies, and use of shared restrooms.  If the storage is private, and restroom are private, they'd be included in the tenant sf too.  So that's why it's included net area.  The landlord needs to make sure that tenants are paying rent on that sf too, or they will lose $$$.  So if the building has 10 tenants, all sharing public restroom, elevator, hallways and lobby; each tenant will technically be paying 1/10 of the rent on all those spaces.  

    Hope this helps!  And did you pass?

    That’s amazing! Thank you so much for giving back and helping everyone going through the process. I have PDD, PPD and the California Supplemental exam since that’s the state I’m starting with. Any advice for the remaining two NCARB exams would be appreciated as I know they’re the hard ones. Thank you

    Thank you Magdalini!

    There really isn't any magic bullet for PDD and PPD.  Just keep studying every day until you pass.  Keep studying until it becomes routine and enjoyable.

    Use ASC and BCI and practice exams.  And if you fail, get some help and retake it asap.  Just keep going!

    Hope this helps!
