Description: This ARE study group provides a space for those on their path to licensure to discuss study techniques, review and discuss exam materials, and prepare for their exams amongst others in the Grand Rapids area seeking licensure.
We will cover the fast-approaching deadline to transition from ARE 4.0 to ARE 5.0 and which exams you should start taking now to insure the best transition.  Each session will be focused around a specific exam that aligns with this transition.  We will also have guest speakers who have recently passed the exams to provide insight on their study techniques and their experience with the exam process.  Mentorship connections are available.
AIA Grand Rapids has a set of Kaplan ARE 4.0 and Brightwood (formerly Kaplan) and Ballast ARE 5.0 study materials, which will be available during the study sessions for all attendees and available to check out for AIA members only.  We will be touching on both ARE 4.0 and ARE 5.0 for the fall sessions (4.0 exams in parentheses).
5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (food and beverages will be provided)
