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. :)

Matt,

Thanks for the great response. Any recommendations for prep time leading up to the exam? I realize everyone studies differently and learning curves vary. Just trying to get an expectation for how long I should study per week and how long before the exam. Seems like there is quite a bit to know for this exam. Thanks for any help or guidance from everyone! Very much appreciated.

Richard,

Congrats on starting your LARE Prep effort !

Yes, with 9 years in the commercial marketplace since 2005, candidates who attend my sessions do recommend the LARE entire book series as very helpful.

This might help -=in your decision making - Erik Sweet, PLA, ASLA wrote 1 book for Section D (includes Section 3 & 4 content). I wrote 2 books titled Section A (Section 1 content). Also, Glenn Acomb, FASLA wrote a Section C book (Section 3 content) as a faculty member at University of Florida. All three of us are volunteer instructors who use the entire PPI LARE book series in our live LARE review sessions for ASLA Chapters across the US. 

A long term benefit to buy and also keep your entire PPI book set, in addition to helping you pass?

Your PPI book series can be placed in a conference room or reception area of your professional office as a concise overview for office visitors (clients, allied professionals, etc.) to verify what you knew at the time of passing LARE when first becoming licensed. 

You'll find the LARE PPI books at the Cal Poly library and at CalTrans agency  regional offices where emerging professionals regularly prepare to for LARE in California - perhaps that might compelling.
