1 down, hopefully only 6 to go...

sorry for the lack of posts lately, i've been working like crazy and studying in my few hours of free time. i took my first ARE (architectural registration exam) yesterday morning. for those of you who are familiar with the exam, i decided to take the schematic design test first. there are 2 graphic vignettes on the schematic exam. i think i did fine on the interior layout portion, but the building layout portion i am unsure of. i kind of ran out of time. i completed it, but didn't have much time to check over the layout or clean it up. looking back, i know that there are a couple of things that i could have done better. i think that if a person was grading the vignette i'd be fine, i just don't know how the computer will grade. i guess i'll have to wait and see when i get the results in a couple of months.

Woo-hoo! Getting started is always the hardest, so congrats! I remember the bldg layout one, I thought I messed it up but ended up passing, so I'm sure you'll be fine! How are the review times now? Hope they are getting shorter.

Ooh...the ARE's. I do NOT miss those! At least you only have 7 instead of 9, though people I know taking in the new format aren't crazy about the multiple choice and vignettes in the same exam. I'm sure you know about it, but the ARE Forum is a great resource.

Good luck and hang in there! It is definitely worth it to finally be able to call yourself an architect!
