ARE 5 Practice Exam contains six practice exams consistent with the NCARB Architect Registration Exam (ARE 5.0) format and divisions. All exam divisions are covered, with one practice exam for each ARE 5.0 division. The problem formats in this book mimic those on the exam and include multiple choice, check-all-that-apply, fill-in-the-blank, drag-and-place, and hot spot formats. Short, realistic problems focus on individual architecture concepts, while longer, more complex case study problems challenge your skills in identifying and applying related architecture concepts.
