J.Robert Wainner, thank you for your comments. I think your attitude towards LARE is very common to those of us who have struggled to pass. The extreme cost has never out weighed the benefit and that's a very unfortunate fact. Maybe thats why we have such a low number of LA's.....have we neared the high 5000's yet?

As I mentioned below.....It appears to me that not only is CLARB scamming LA candidates with making the LARE exam extremely difficult to pass (the HUGE costs of the exam and prep. courses that so many LA graduates are having to pay for).

I'm seeing several SENIOR LA's on here...offering for a LOT OF $$$, various LARE study seminars.  You guys are just taking advantage of young LA graduates.

I have assisted (2) LA's (who are members of LAND8) and helped them get up to speed on "GRADING"...and I'm happy to say that BOTH of them PASSED the LARE exam and are BOTH Licensed LA's in the States where they live and work.

And, NO.......I didn't charge them a dime to help them.  Giving back to the profession of Landscape Architecture is very rewarding.......and in my opinion, every SENIOR LA should give back from time to time.

Corson Learning webinars help Sections 3 & 4 candidates understand what to study, how to interpret multiple response questions, share tips with one another, and get moral support throughout the process. A combination of pre-recorded videos and live Q&A sessions, plus a private member's chat room and live support have proven helpful to participants in the last two years since its inception.

Richard-

I don't recall if you mentioned which section you are taking. But just my 2 cents from my experience (have passed all & now licensed): The earlier the better! That's too vague tho right?

For the graphic sections, which are now sections 3 & 4, I started studying about 3 months in advance. For the other 2, I did about 6 weeks - 2 months.Several days a week.

How ever long you think it might take you, start a little bit earlier than that. Life has a lot of curve balls. A cushion will give you time to: learn more about something you had no idea was on the test and you know nothing about; you could get sick and not be able to study for a week (I got strep throat once while studying); something else could come up in your life that will detract you; etc...... I feel like the whole experience is stressful enough, I wanted my study time to be stress free, and so that I could take my time and no worry about racing against the clock.

For most people, the content on the exam does not reflect what they do on a daily basis in their jobs. Maybe some of the content, but definitely not all. So chances are you will be studying stuff that you have no idea about. I've been working for 15 years. There were things on the test that I have literally never even heard of. So start early, & let your brain take it in slowly and steadily, and you'll retain it well.

I hope this helps you!! Keep us posted & feel free to ask more questions. :)
