New Question Types and Case Studies

For ARE 5.0, we will be retiring vignettes in favor of two new question types: hot spots and drag-and-place, plus the addition of case studies. The exam will continue to use multiple choice, check-all-that-apply, and quantitative fill-in-the-blank.

As with the current exam, all questions in ARE 5.0 will be worth one point. Not answering a question is the same as answering it incorrectly, so we recommend attempting every question. There will be no partial credit for any questions.

Watch these short videos to learn more about these three new features.
