  • Thank you!!

    After graduating from grad school in Chicago I moved to a rural town in Maryland with little to no Architectural community. This podcast has helped me stay sane while getting ready to take my ARE exams and I feel like I'm right there with you guys!

  • Very helpful - thank you!

    Professionally presented material to help you pass the A.R.E. Great insight and wonderfully produced, makes it "fun" to actually study for this test. I have been making it a point to listen as often as possible to immerse myself as I am planning to take my final 3 exams this year. Thanks!

  • on the go

    I decided to listen to the 1st podcast, “How to get Started Passing the ARE” on a morning run. Wow! I am so happy I spent that time listening to the tips Mike Newman had to offer! He’s got some great insight and I really like how he shares logical ideas. I’m sure I’ll listen to it more than once, there’s a ton of good stuff here!

  • Actually Useful

    This is actually some pretty good advice. They have your typical mock exams but they also teach you how to game the system, too. Also it’s not boring. Good stuff. Keep it up!
