If the NCARB Moderators are a little slow in responding the rest of the week, it’s because we are at the AIA Convention in Philadelphia.

If you are also there, be sure and stop by the NCARB booth (#1539) to say 'Hi' and demo ARE 5.0. We are hosting a Meet & Greet Friday afternoon @ 1:00 PM. We’d love to chat and you can even win prizes! #AIACON16

In the meantime, please continue to help each other out by asking questions, answering questions, and sharing tips.

Walkway to the accessible spaces and a walkway to the public walk are the only things I notice as well.
Happy saturday everyone! This is my first stab at the site design vignette.  I am testing on Monday and was hoping to make sure I am on the right track.  All comments/tips are welcome!  Thank you!

Hey Everyone - 

With the east coast expecting some significant snowstorms this weekend, I just want to post a quick reminder on the test center closing/rescheduling procedures.  And if you are located somewhere warm, then ignore this and enjoy the sunshine!

Rescheduling Procedures
In the event your test center is closed, you will be contacted by Prometric to assist you with rescheduling your exam as follows:

1. You will receive a phone call from Prometric within 24 hours of your test center closing to reschedule your exam.

2. If you miss this phone call, you will automatically be rescheduled at no charge for the next available slot at a test center near you. You will receive an e-mail and automated phone call from Prometric notifying you of the new appointment time.

3. If you are unable to make the automatically rescheduled appointment time, you must call Prometric’s Customer Care line at 1-800-853-6769 to reschedule your exam at no cost. When speaking with the Prometric representative, you must mention that you need to reschedule your automatically rescheduled appointment because of a test center closure. You may not reschedule your appointment through My Examination in this circumstance.

Please note, if you are unsure whether a test center is closed due to inclement weather or any other reason, you should contact the test center directly. If the center is open, it is your responsibility to keep the appointment. If the center is closed, you will be given the opportunity to reschedule as indicated above. If you are unable to contact the local test center, please visit Prometric's website for a list of test centers that are currently or will be nonoperational and cannot deliver exams.

Hey everyone!  Because of the upcoming holidays the NCARB Moderators will not be as active on here over the next 2 weeks.

There is a ton of information already posted to the Community thanks to you all.  If you have questions, spend a little time searching and I bet you can find it. And by all means, help each other.

Thanks for a great year on here and Happy Holidays!

Hi everyone.  We have posted some polls related to various popular test prep resources.  Your responses will help others know which are good resources to use when preparing for a division.

All of the polls can be found under the ARE Test Prep category.  Please feel free to start new posts on other valuable resources you have used!
