Reminder: ARE 4.0 retires in less than two months on June 30, 2018. Candidates will not be able to test in ARE 4.0 after that date, and those who have not completed the exam will need to finish testing in ARE 5.0. Learn more about ARE 4.0’s upcoming retirement, or transition to ARE 5.0 now!  

Completing the ARE can seem daunting, and we know you’ll have questions. That’s where the ARE 4.0 Community comes in.

Whether you’re looking for a study group to join, searching for tips from fellow testers, or need expert help, the community is the place to be. Through the Google+ community, you’ll have access to:

  • Videos: At the heart of the community, you’ll find video tutorials on all seven divisions. Learn how the vignettes are scored, test your knowledge with sample questions, and expand your study library with suggested resources.
  • Networking: Right now, thousands of candidates are preparing for the exam. The community is a great place to meet emerging professionals across the country, pick up a few pointers, and share your own study tips.
  • Expert Moderators: Our moderators will engage with the community throughout the business week, Monday through Friday. We’ll try our best to respond to questions within 48 hours.
