As you may know, the Architect Registration Exam is soon going through a major change with the introduction of the ARE 5.0. However, there are a number of candidates who may need to complete their requirements before the switch to the ARE 5.0. For this reason, Dr. Mehdi Setareh has developed and placed several sections of his "Structural Systems: Architect Registration Exam 4.0" book and video recordings of his lectures for the interested individuals to download free of charge. They can find the materials at http://www.arestructuralsystems.com/free-downloads.html.
Dr. Setareh is a professor of Architecture at Virginia Tech School of Architecture and Design. He has over 26 years of experience teaching to architects and architecture students. He has been teaching ARE Structural Systems preparation seminars for the past 18 years at the Virginia Tech Alexandria Center. His book is developed based on the materials covered in these seminars.

We've all heard about the transition from ARE 4.0 to 5.0 by now but do you have a plan of attack? There's a few different ways to take the exams whether it is continuing strictly with 4.0 exams, transitioning between the two and taking less exams or by eliminating all vignettes and testing with the new case studies in ARE 5.0. Let us know what your thoughts are on the best method of testing or if you have any questions about either version of the exam.
