I'd like to get info on prep classes or materials in the midwest. I'm in KC. Some of the books listed on CLARB are out of print.

LAREwebinarFlyer_2014.pdf

A year ago I began studying for Section 4 again, after failing it in December 2012. After passing last April, friends asked me to teach an online class geared toward this section, which is trickier than the others. Next week is the first live Q&A session in my 3-part webinar series. More info is in the attached flyer, and on my website, www.cherylcorson.com. Best wishes in your studies! Cheryl

Comment by J. Robert Wainner on January 28, 2014 at 11:07pm

What I find a bit disturbing about the many comments here about LARE.....are ALL the individuals who are just making MONEY off of LARE candidates!!!

CLARB should not be setting up the LARE exam to FAIL candidates.  It's my understand that the failure rate for the LARE exam is VERY HIGH!!!  It should be to "establish minimum competency".

I took what was called the U.N.E. (Uniform National Exam) back in 1977 - 1 yr. after graduating from Texas A&M.  No, it was not a computer exam, it was hand drawing, hand grading problems & multiple choice questions.  It was not necessary to study for it...I took the U.N.E. exam, passed it and by August of 1978 I applied for an received my LA Licenses in BOTH Texas & Florida.  AND, the U.N.E. was very reasonably priced to take.

WHY....has the testing system for Landscape Architects become so expensive and so difficult???  I've read where LARE candidates have spent thousands of dollars trying to pass the LARE...unbelievable.

Then, once a candidate PASSES the LARE, they are all required to set up a CLARB file (along with an annual fee)...application and annual fees for a State LA License and the cost of continuing education courses (annually) are required.

Then, you look at the JOB situation......WHAT JOBS?  These LA graduates go thru intense 4 or 5 yr. University LA programs, graduate, only to face the LARE exam...and then, learn there are few, if any descent entry level jobs out there.

The SYSTEM is broke people.  CLARB needs to take a hard look in the MIRROR......fix it!
