Practice Management
(PcM) | 2021 Gen 2 – Ultimate Whole Enchilada

Practice Management (PcM) is an exam that tests your ability to operate and successfully run an architectural firm.  It’s not based on your own experiences, but on multipliers, staffing, setting fees, and operations. For most candidates, this material is so new to them that they don’t know where to start.  Expect to get scenario-based questions on the management of an Architecture practice, including professional ethics, fiduciary responsibilities, and legal issues and regulations.  This exam is 3-1/2 hours of you demonstrating all of your leaderships skills to show that you understand how to properly own, operate and manage a practice.  Luckily, we’ve got you covered.

We have put together the coolest, most comprehensive study package available, anywhere.  Plus, we’ve priced it well below the competition.  Our PcM package (which we call the “Ultimate Whole Enchilada – PcM”) includes everything you’ll need to prepare for this tough division.

I wanted to send a note to say that ARE Exam Prep has been a great help!! The study guides are formatted well. They are concise and cover the critical information. The tutorials are helpful.  What I especially love is the audio component!! It makes it so easy to squeeze in study time on my commute. That’s huge when every minute is precious while trying to juggle career, family responsibilities, and study. I have passed 3 so far!! I’m tackling BS now. Wish me luck!

Just wanted to let you know that I passed all of the exams and I almost exclusively used your materials. Beyond listening to the audio (once through, maybe one more time on areas I was less familiar with), I only had to spend on average about 20 hours of reading, practice exams (basically just studying the weekend before the exam) because the audio was so incredibly effective. The voice and pace are excellent and kept the material interesting. Thanks for everything!

Omigosh I am SOOOO excited for the new resource to help me with my remaining 3 exams. You have a fantastic product. Your product is something well overdue for many interns seeking licensure and I am really happy to have the resource for all the newer interns in my office. In the meantime I am enjoying the podcasts (currently listening to 9 things they don’t tell you about dating an architect) LOVE this list. And I really relate to all the points….
