MmyersGC ,

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!

PabloSerna ,

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!
