Architecture Exam Review: Nonstructural topics
The Architect Registration Exam (ARE) is part of the licensing requirements for U.S. and Canadian architects. A computerized, closed-book exam, the ARE is administered year-round at a network of test centers.The topics represented on the ARE may be roughly divided into two areas: structural and nonstructural. We offer two primary study guides for the exam -- one volume devoted to each area. Each volume includes concise reviews of the exam topics, with practice problems and solutions.Additional practice for the ARE is provided by Architecture Exam Review: Site Planning and Building Design Graphic Divisions.Volume II: Nonstructural Topics provides a thorough review of the ARE nonstructural exam topics, including the exam's most challenging divisions: Site Planning and Building Design. More than 80 sample questions are provided, with solutions, along with a valuable checklist of items that should be considered in every design solution. The book also covers test-taking strategy, and is enhanced by illustrations, figures, and tables, along with a detailed index. The fifth edition was updated to reflect changes in the exam -- the adoption of a computerized format and use of the 2000 versions of the International Building Code and the International Plumbing Code.
