Thank you again for the organization of the Amber Book program through AIA Virginia. It was a
tremendous help to me, and I just finished the last exam on Friday. I’m happy to report that I
passed all 6 divisions on the first try, after studying with Amber book. The entire process took
me around 3 months, keeping with AIA Virginia’s deadline. Again, thank you for the discounted
price, which gave me the opportunity and push to get my license!

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!
