ARE Study Group

The ARE Study Group meets every Wednesday evening from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. All meetings will be at the Austin Center for Architecture in the Conference Room. If you have any questions, please contact Catherine Mahoney-Myron. The Study Group is using a Study Guide and Flashcard system, which can be purchased from for around $99. It is highly recommended that you buy your own study guide and printout the workbook to follow along with the class. Refer to the following schedule and list of topics for our next meeting.


We are fortunate enough to have Encotech Engineering Consultants volunteer to help us with our structures study! Join us on 3/15, 3/29 and 4/26.


We currently have two groups meeting:

Kim Radich will transition to ARE 5.0. She will attend some of the structure sessions but then will prepare for 5.0 exam.

The ARE 4.0 study group has now moved into structures for the SS exam. We are using architect exam prep material as well as the Thaddeus videos and can offer a discount if you want to sign up for those videos. Please contact Catherine Mahoney-Myron

Also note we have dates for tutoring by Encotech Engineering Consultants. Please feel free to join us if you are interested in studying structures.
