This free ARE® Construction Documents and Services Mock Exam video replay will focus on reviewing mock exam questions for the Construction Documents and Services exam.  Construction Documents and Services is a wide ranging exam that covers everything from legal issues to flashing details to how timesheets are constructed. There is no way to know all the possible questions and potential answers, so what we will do is focus on a few sample questions (in a mock exam style) that allow us to use specific questions to discuss general exam approaches.
