LARE Preparation Courses in Northern California

Freeman & Jewell Landscape Architecture is once again offering our popular series of preparatory courses for candidates taking the Landscape Architect Registration Examination. Our classes have attracted students from 18 states, Canada, and Germany.

Class Dates:
Section C_April 3-5 Fri Noon-6:30pm, Sat 9 am-6:30 pm, Sun 9 am-6 pm
Section E_April 17-19 Fri Noon-6:30pm, Sat 9 am-6:30 pm, Sun 9 am-6 pm
Section E_May 1-3 Fri Noon-6:30pm, Sat 9 am-6:30 pm, Sun 9 am-6 pm
Note: Due to high demand, the May class is a repeat of the April 17-19 class.

We have a strict maximum of 26 students per class to allow for individual one on one desk crits during vignette work periods. I have 10 years of experience in teaching LARE reviews and have helped nearly 1000 students prepare for the exam.

Instructor: Ray Freeman, ASLA, RLA in California and Massachusetts, and CPESC (nationwide). Over 30 years experience in private practice, plus a few odd years in the public sector. Former lecturer at Harvard, UC Berkeley, UC Davis Extension, and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

The classes cover exam formats, tips and tricks, and feature programmed instruction focusing on developing the skills needed to solve every known type of technical task required on these sections of the LARE. The format of the classes are lecture, question and answer, and studio-like work sessions with desk crits and review of each exercise or vignette done in class. In addition to a study guide, students will receive at least 20 problems in each course, of which about half will be worked in class.

To obtain a current copy of our brochure and registration form, please e-mail Rayfreeman3@comcast.net.

Location: Marin Headlands (15 minutes north of San Francisco). Very cheap bunkhouse style accommodations are available, and there is a very reasonably priced shuttle service from SFO airport.

Cost: $420 per course.

Anyone interested in selling (or sharing, bless you) their PPI 2nd edition C and/ or E vignettes? I'll be taking these sections in June. Let me know! Thanks.

That's weird....did you try the link in more than one browser? A couple people in my office got it to work....maybe try refreshing the page or clearing your passwords, history etc

this is what I just got:

Results for the graphic administration are typically available 10-12 weeks from the administration date. Scores for the December 2008 administration are not yet available. Please check back soon. Thank you.

Existing scores will be temporarily unavailable while we conduct quality control in preparation for release of the December 2008 scores. Thank you.

I tried your link Stephanie, but couldn't get them there either.....

SCORES ARE POSTED!! The webpage is being kind of finicky so you have to keep refreshing it....but they're posted!
