Our Study Guide for the ARE Is Unlike Any Other
If you'd like to get the ARE score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the ARE is "good enough," and to beat the test taking game, then this might be the most important message you read this year.
Our comprehensive study guide for the ARE 4.0 is written by our ARE experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the ARE. Our original research into the Architect Registration Examination (ARE), offered by the National Council of Architectural Boards (NCARB), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the ARE. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the ARE.
Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:
The Three Reasons To Believe What We Say
The First Reason:
Our company's name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have a team of standardized test researchers who have worked on developing our study guide for the ARE. The standards for who gets to work on the team are very strict- we demand the best for our customers, and only those who met our exacting standards made the cut. The dedicated research staff have years of combined experience in mastering the content and skills necessary to succeed on the toughest exams.
The Second Reason:
Some academic studies have revealed that test takers do not really benefit from the traditional test preparation process. But we knew there had to be a solution- if test takers were not doing well on the ARE despite high intelligence, there had to be a set of secret keys to the test that would open the door of success for these test takers.
We believe we have succeeded in finding the secret keys of the exam. What we found was surprising, and in some cases ridiculously simple once explained to the average test taker.
We put the findings together in a thorough, concise study guide that we believe allows any test taker, at any skill level, to improve his or her results dramatically with a minimum of effort.
The Third Reason:
We created the product in part because we were frustrated by the options available to test takers who really wanted to do well on the ARE.
A common approach is to TEACH the material, instead of TEACHING THE TEST. That's not necessarily good enough for the ARE- you have to know how to apply the knowledge. Most test takers already have a general knowledge of the material that will be covered on the exam.
One reason some test takers do well on the day of the test is that they have made the critical connection between the material they learned and how to use the material to succeed on the ARE.
Our guide addresses the difference between merely knowing the material and knowing how to use the material to perform on test day.
You're going to save time, money, and aggravation. You'll learn to avoid the mistakes and the bad strategies that you've been vulnerable to. --Just for starters, here are some ways our product can help your score on the ARE...
The Exclusive Test Taking Techniques
Now, you're probably wondering how and why we can do all the things we claim.
Let us explain.
Before we go any further, let us clarify what ARE Secrets is not. It is not a stale rehash of all of the things you have already learned in the past.
ARE Secrets is our exclusive collection of the tips and the information that we have specially selected to give you the best results on the ARE for the least time spent studying. It's written in everyday language and is easy to use.
We cover the 5 essential skills necessary to do well on the ARE, plus comprehensive reviews covering all of the essential test sections individually.

I purchased the Secrets file, and I just wanted to let you know that I got a 99% on my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures. Sincerely, Paul L.
My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS, Chris G.
I just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!! Brian
I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you! Zac L.
You get at least 10 times your money's worth! --When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth.
