Course Overview
Hi. I'm Kevin Griendling, and get ready to prepare for the ARE 5. 0 Practice Management Exam. I'm an architect and professor of architecture in Southern California with an acute sense of ARE test strategies. Passing the ARE 5. 0 is no easy task, but it is the last major hurdle to becoming a licensed architect. This course will present and discuss the content outlines in the NCARB exam's specifications, including strategies to focus your studies and retain knowledge. It covers an applied understanding of practice using real world examples with a direct correlation to test content. NCARB suggests studying content in a manner that prepares you for success in the profession and that's just what this course does. Whether or not you are just starting or are already done with your architectural experience program, it is never too early to start preparing for the ARE 5. 0. By the time exam day rolls around, you'll feel confident in being asked questions about business operations, practice finances, performance standards, and even personnel management. I look forward to helping you prepare for the ARE Practice Management exam. Good luck in your studies and I'll see you on the inside.
