This is a three-evening class on May 4, 11 and 18 and is intended for those preparing to take the Architect Registration Exam.

Registration deadline: April 6

Program description

This three-session review will cover the Structural Systems section of the Architectural Registration Exam. The first session will be taught by two architects who have recently passed the exam. The last two sessions will be taught by a structural engineer. The sessions will provide a general review of concepts, formulas and vocabulary as well as the Structural Layout vignette. Each registrant will receive a copy of the Kaplan sample problem study book in advance of the first class and encouraged to spend time working through some of the problems from the study book on their own. Registrants should come to the class prepared to ask questions and to identify problems they’d like to work out together during class time.
