Does anyone know of a good study guide or textbook for the professional practice portion of the registration exam?May 14, 2008 at 8:42 pm #177629Kevin J. GaughanParticipant
I am sure you have already seen this list, but just in case, here is the list of resources posted by CLARB:
I have not actually started studying for the exam yet, but several people in my office just took the exam and found Ready Set Practice to have good study material.
Also, you should look into The Road to Licensure, apparently it is also a good resource.
When are you thinking of taking the exam? Truthfully, I hear the L.A.R.E reviews, although somewhat boring, are the best sources of study material.May 19, 2008 at 2:41 pm #177628Andie MurthaParticipant

There is one by Morrison Media, it is more of a book of definitions, but believe it or not it was the most influential for me passing the multiple choice sections, and study Business Law for Landscape Architects, Section A is almost the book directly.
I would go to a LARE Review for C & E, you usually get alot of practice problems.
Lastly try the PPI books, they are good to test yourself and see how prepared you might be.May 29, 2008 at 7:09 pm #177626Christine KernsParticipant
I’d like to ask where you found a copy of Business Law for Landscape Architects? I can’t find it for sale anywhere on the internet! I already have Ready Set Practice – is it worth trying to locate the Business Law book as well? Thanks!June 30, 2008 at 5:27 pm #177625Cliff JonesParticipant

I tried to locate thus book, but it was no where on the web. I contacted one of the authors, who put me intouch with the publisher, but no luck. It is out of print. Good luck…let me know if you find some copies.

I work with one of my professors David Spooner with the LARE offered at UGA. He offers 2 sessionsand may be able to provide you with some resource information or ask about the session coming open in the Fall. We have people register from all over… email@example.comJuly 18, 2008 at 12:55 pm #177622Cliff JonesParticipant
I attended the above mentioned UGA workshop. Pretty invaluable info. It’s worth it if you can attend.July 19, 2008 at 2:01 am #177621Eric GilbeyParticipant
I have instructed the LARE reviews in Ohio since 2000 and St Louis for the last 2 years, and have repeatedly recommended Ready Set Practice, as it really is more apt for studying. I also recommend AIA Glossary of Construction Industry Terms. This has many terms and definitions that might not be as obvious in one place and if there are terms that are similar, you can more quickly compare the terms.
If you work closely with a landscape contractor (or have some fairly regular contact with one), I would recommend picking their brain about contract procedures and liability. Another great resource is an insurance company that handles liability insurance for design professionals and/or contractors. Remember a decent part of understanding the professional practice is knowing what everyone else’s responsibilities are in a project’s process, even after installation.
I hope this has helped…let me know if you have other questions.
