Ray Freeman replied to Deryn Davidson's discussion 'LARE test: Who takes it and who decides not to?'
"Well Bob, I totally agree with you about CLARB. The new format for Design and Grading is pretty sickening in my view. Possibly the most serious issue is that their specs for the exam are highly flawed and they tend to disregard them. The exam would…"

"There are seats available in my Section 4 workshops in northern California on June 20-22 and in Raleigh, NC on July 11-13, 2014. There should be links to these events here in Land 8 and definitely on the ASLA website, or you can e-mail me directly…"

LARE Review Tweaks

I've been working on getting ready for my spring LARE review classes. I've put together some new overheads for the most recent section C vignettes I've developed. C19s parking problem has been fixed, and there's a few minor fixes here and there. I've also developed a brand new vignette based on one from the December 08 exam. It's a passive solar condo cluster with parking, stream setbacks and height limitations. All trees are sacred here.

I've also been organizing/codifying some… Continue

Hello Ray

Will there be a section 3 course offered for December 2013?

Just scoured the Washington ASLA website, is Section 4 Bootcamp listed there yet?  If so, please direct me where to look, if not please direct me when and where to look.  And either way, hold me a spot, I am coming!!! That is not too long of a drive. Thank you.
