Hello all,

I just decided to take PA (ARE 5.0) as my first exam. I'm very overwhelmed and desperately seeking help for a great advice.
is this a great one to start off my ARE for the next 5 exams? or did I just make a terrible mistake :shock:
please feel free to leave comment

thank you

everyone is different, and if you read what the exam is about and you think you know more or less the subject matters more strongly that the other exams, it is really your choice...I guess none of us have a clear path that is a guaranteed one. You must be comfortable with the choice/approach you take... that's my take on the issue.

PA is basically (ARE 4.0 SPD) and (ARE 4.0 PPP) combined w/o vignettes. I compared the table of contents from Brightwood and the content is exactly the same just reorganized. I think believe you picked a good one to take. Stay the course. Good LUCK.

Hi MinPark!

I am going to take PA as my first 5.0 exam. Do you have any recommendations on what to study?
