Big news for ARE: Take five tests and you’re done!Sounds too good to be true, right? But it’s true! In 2016 you can take five tests – three in ARE 4.0 and 2 in ARE 5.0 and you’ll have completed all your tests.How is this possible? NCARB has been doing a major overhaul the test and not just changing questions within a division, but actually reevaluating all of the divisions. For example, in 5.0 there will be no stand-alone Structures Exam; instead questions on structures will be included in many tests. And because things have shifted around you need only take three tests in 4.0: Construction Documents, PPP and Site Planning in 2016. Later this year 5.0 will go online. And as long as you have passed the previously described 4.0 classes, all you need to do is take two sections in 5.0: Project Planning + Design and Project Development and Documentation and you’re done!To take advantage of this opportunity, AIA|DC is partnering with the online ARE education portal Black Spectacles (www.blackspectacles.com) on a Chapter license which will lower the cost to test takers. We will encourage members to concentrate on those three divisions and on a monthly basis we will have in-person review session on all three sections with mentors and professors who are well versed in the material. This will offer the opportunity to meet others who are taking the same tests and perhaps start a study group of your own. Come fall we will begin sessions on the two 5.0 exams as well.After you register, your license will be activated on March 8 when we will have out kickoff meeting of the series at 6:30pm. You don't have to attend but it will help you organize your study. Please note: Even if you don't want to follow the "Take 5" path you can still use Black Spectacles to study. If there are enough people needing review for another exam it will be added to the study schedule.Price:3-Month Subscription: $2706-Month Subscription: $480
