    Authors:    Holly Williams Leppo, AIA, NCIDQ-certified, LEED AP, David Kent Ballast, FAIA, CSI, NCIDQ-Cert. No. 9425, Rima Taher, PhD, PE

    ARE 5 Practice Problems for the Architect Registration Exam contains more than 600 challenging practice problems organized according to ARE 5.0 exam divisions and designed to reinforce your knowledge of the topics presented in the ARE 5 Review Manual. Short, realistic problems focus on individual architecture concepts and follow the same formats as the problems on the exam, including multiple choice, case study, check-all-that-apply, fill-in-the-blank, drag-and-place, and hot spot. Longer, more complex problems challenge your skills in identifying and applying related architecture concepts. Problems will also familiarize you with the codes and standards you’ll use for the exam.


    Solutions are clearly written, complete, and easy to follow. Units are meticulously identified and carried through in all calculations. Frequent references to figures, tables, equations, and appendices in the ARE 5 Review Manual and the exam-adopted codes and standards will direct you to relevant support material.
