Hear from Taylor Terrill, AIA, who used the Amber Book and passed his ARE exams in 2020. Taking the ARE: It’s Not as Scary as You Think>>

I wanted to update you that I worked through the Amber Book ARE prep program from July 20th – September 1st, and took all six exam sessions over the last week’s week, finishing yesterday. I passed all six exams on the first go. I eagerly await my license in the coming weeks. I found the Amber Book approach of taking the exams as one exhausting extended exam is the best, most efficient approach. There’s just so much overlapping content that it should be treated as one exam and taken that way. Thank you for supporting ARE candidates via the Amber Book as it’s cost is significant. I found this program the best fit for me and the 60-day study program promoting perfect!
