ARE 5.0

ARE 4.0 will be retired on JUNE 30, 2018


ARE 5.0 Transition Plan

ARE 5.0 is here! If you are strategic and take the right ARE 4.0 exams now (CDS, PPP and SPD), you only have to take 5 division exams in total!  Follow the link for more information.  Be aware that you must finish your ARE 4.0 exams before transitioning to ARE 5.0, you cannot go back.  If you’ve already begun to take ARE 4.0 use the Transition Calculator to see what ARE 5.0 exams you can skip.

What’s New?

There’s no more vignette! NO MORE VIGNETTE!! So in it’s place there are three new question types; Case Studies, Drag and Place, and Hot Spots.  You can watch these YouTube videos to learn more.

Case Studies – Drag and Place – Hot Spots

New Exam = New Materials

With the new exam, there are new study guides available.  They have been slow to roll out, as companies want to find the best way to deliver the material.  Here is a list of what’s currently available (we will try to update this as they come available)

NCARB has done a great job of providing as much information as they can to get you started in ARE 5.0.  Below are some links.
