Upcoming Exam Resources 

We know that accessing quality exam resources can be an expensive limitation on the path to licensure. To help all candidates succeed on the ARE, we’re developing a set of free practice exams for each ARE 5.0 division. Later this summer, they’ll be available through your NCARB Record for all candidates with active exam eligibilities. Stay tuned for more!
