  • Kalia,
    Just registering and taking the LARE is up to around $2000 at current prices, and CLARB keeps raising them.
    Some people do not necessarily need to take a prep class. I would advise people to get some basic information via a class or at the very least pay attention to the available free resources available thru CLARB or the ASLA web site or…[Read more]

  • In response to Matt Mathes:
    Who knows how much prep time you need!
    Only you do.  If you do take the Exam right after graduation then you are well prepared. If you wait, well then research shows that much of what you learned unless you apply it quickly diminishes with time . As for costs?
    Well, I think it only fair to post the costs of our…[Read more]

  • To see the LARE reviews I am scheduled to teach in the fall of 2016, please go to the EVENTS link of this web-site.

  • I don’t look at it as older folks helping younger folks but rather peers helping peers. As Matt has heard me say, more than half of the folks in my Corson Learning webinars are over 40 and sitting for the LARE. I respect those who took the UNE for their fortitude. I don’t think I could do that in one day in some stiflingly hot state fairground…[Read more]

  • Agreeing with and endorsing J. Robert Wainner’s comments posted on Jan. 25, July 28 and Oct. 23, if each licensed professional reached out to help only 1 active LARE candidate, the profession grows. Design construction professions similar to landscape architects each have paid and pro-bono prep instructors as well as free and commercial study…[Read more]

  • Bob, not everyone has access to someone like you! And the LARE prep classes were started to tackle how to teach more than one candidate at a time. I would say most of the LARE prep providers are doing this for the same reason you do, but they can’t do it for free.

    The world is different from when you took the UNE, so is medicine and other…[Read more]

  • When the new format was instated, the record holder fee covered a whole year, so that you could save a little bit of money by attempting to take the exam sections either together or as Tony did, a week apart without a “new” application fee. I like Tony’s suggestion. Rebooting takes about a week, and with the window for exams, could easily be…[Read more]

  • Hi Tony.  After attending a review session by Matt Mathes last year, it was recommended to take 1 & 2 together and 3 & 4 together.  This was because there was a certain amount of overlap between these sections which made for better studying.  I took 1 & 2 on back to back days last year in December due to the distance I had to travel to take the ex…[Read more]

  • Hello Tony, When I took the old format Sections A & B, I did so on consecutive mornings. Those exams aren’t as long as Sections 3 & 4, so this can be done. When I used the same strategy on the new format Sections 3 & 4, I failed Section 4 by a little bit, retook it by itself in the next exam cycle and passed. Good luck to you!

  • I’m looking to take Sections 1 & 2 during the December session, as I’ve read many people do. It is unclear when people say they took sections “together” if they are taking both sections back-to-back in the same day or spacing it out over the course of the examination window. One has the advantage of less time off work, the other gives time to…[Read more]

  • Mr. Wainner is entitled to his opinion, however no review course on the LARE or any other professional licensing exam is ever free to the candidates. The ASLA, various extension programs, and many state chapter charge fees for live or web-based reviews. In the past, CLARB charged serious fees for study aids including “The Road to Licensure” and…[Read more]

  • Vladamir might consider one of UCLA’s live prep sessions.
    Responding to J. Robert Wainner’s comment, my donated time for travel, to organize and teach LARE live prep sessions is all pro-bono since 1995. My live prep sessions thru Chapters reach many active LARE candidates, during past 3 years for 7 to 9 sessions a year.  Agreeing with 1 part of…[Read more]

  • 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?

    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…[Read more]

  • 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…[Read more]
