A must-have book in preparation for each of the six divisions of ARE 5.0

ARE 5.0 Practice Questions, PPI’s best-selling ARE practice book, prepares you for each of the six divisions of the exam with a variety of practice questions and case studies. This new edition builds on the previous edition with new questions and updates to cover content feedback received from NCARB for the ARE 5.0 Exam Review.

  • 2 case studies at the end of each division designed to test your ability to examine and use multiple pieces of information to make decisions about scenarios that could be encountered in the practice of architecture
  • Clearly written solutions that are thorough and easy to follow, with units that are meticulously identified and carried through in all calculations to support theory and application of key concepts
  • Questions include alternative item types including multiple choice, case study, check-all-that-apply, quantitative-fill-in-the-blank, drag-and-place, and hotspot to familiarize you with the types of questions you’ll encounter in the exam
