Black Spectacles becomes NCARB’s first-ever Approved Test Prep Provider

We are excited to announce that we are NCARB’s first-ever Approved Test Prep Provider!

Our ARE 5.0 video lectures, practice exams, and flashcards for PcM, PjMPAPPDPDD, and CE now have the vote of confidence from NCARB that will help you feel even more confident that you are learning material that you’ll see on the ARE.

Why did we get approved?

NCARB determined that our ARE 5.0 PcM, PjM, PA, PPD, PDD and CE study materials are effective in helping licensure candidates in preparing for the ARE and obtaining an architecture license. In other words, our content has the depth that you need to pass the ARE!

How will this help you?

With this new stamp of approval that you will see on approved exam prep products on our website, you can be sure that our ARE 5.0 PcM, PjM, PA, PPD, PDD, and CE study materials are high quality and approved as a reliable exam prep resource by NCARB.

When will the last two exams be approved?

You can expect to hear from us soon when the final two exam divisions are approved. Stay tuned for the announcement!

How can you tell which products are approved?
