The ARE is developed by the NCARB and is composed of nine divisions:
Pre Design ( 3 Hours, 125 questions)
General Structures ( 3 1/2 Hours, 125 questions)
Lateral Forces ( 2 1/2 Hours, 90 questions)
Mech. & Elec. Systems (2 1/2 Hours, 125 questions)
Materials and Methods (2 1/2 Hours, 125 questions)
Construction Documents and Services (3 hours, 125 questions)
Site Planning (3 1/2 hours, 6 vignettes)
Building Planning (5 3/4 Hours, 3 vignettes)
Building Technology (5 1/4 Hours, 6 vignettes)
An NCARB publication entitled "Member Board Requirements" contains a comparitive overview of the requirements by jurisdiction and will be sent to you on request. It is imperative that you be familiar with the details of the legal requirements in your state. Another NCARB publication, "ARE Guidelines", is also available and explains every aspect of the registration exam.
Those who fail portions of the Architects REgistration Exam(ARE) may retake those portions after waiting 6 months. You should become familiar with the examination and registration requirements in the STATE where you wish to practice.
I assume you have satisfied the Intern Development Program(IDP) Requirements before taking the ARE. IF not, the "Intern Development PRogram Guidelines" will be also sent to you upon request by the NCARB. Study and take it as soon as you can, as retention of the information learned from the University will be more fresh in your mind, lessening the need for more study time. Each test has a study book. Reading them will help refresh your memory.
