The areforum is down... again.

I've archived (and organized) many of the helpful study materials from the areforum... from the ftp and from helpful posts.
I've also included helpful study tips and pointers to help you pass the vignettes.
I also have links to vignette alternate files and installation instructions.

Check it out here: http://arehelp.webs.com/

It's completely free... and won't crash. If it helps you, pass the word.

Enjoy!

Coach, I know this seems ridiculous, but I followed the links above and looked in General Structures. Possibly they are in a different folder...studying structures is torment enough, but feeling silly for not being able to find the alt programs is the icing! Thanks

Stuck on Step 1 for downloading.
*****HOW TO USE THESE FILES*****

**GETTING STARTED:

1. Open the C:\NCARBPP folder.


I have the NCARB practice programs on my pc, but when I go to download alts and follow step 1 on the how to file, It says it needs to select a program....

Also tried just typing in C:\NCARBPP.

Nothing. Thoughts on how to proceed? Thanks
