Designed for future architects, by current architects

These flashcards cover it all – from what a “Gantt chart” is to what “SMART goals” are. All concepts, content, words, and objectives featured in the cards were hand-picked with ARE test questions in mind. We’ll take this opportunity to remind you, all of our ARE test prep materials are NCARB-approved and align with NCARB objectives. Basically if it’s on the exam, it’s on these cards.


Take their word for it.

I took two tests back-to-back, passed both of them, and then and went and just did one this past week and passed my final one. It was nice because I knew that if I had Black Spectacles, I’d at least sit down and make sure that I was studying.
