About the Course:

“This review covers everything you need to know in order to prepare for, take, and pass the four (4) sections of the LARE. I am asking that you bring your laptops as I will provide a USB with about “2 megs” of data (books, study material and sample tests) that will guide you in the right direction.

The session will open with a segment that dispels common myths, misconceptions and outright mistruths about the exam. I will then proceed to help you develop an approach to success. How to prepare. What materials to use and how to use them. How to answer various item types. And, ultimately, how to PASS.

The exam is not a test of knowledge or an exercise in memorization. Rather, it is an exam to ascertain minimal competence as landscape architect who is protecting public health, safety, and welfare. Olmsted would be proud.”

-Thomas J. Nieman, PhD, FASLA

“I took this study course and it helped set the basis for the four sections of the LARE. The information provided by Dr. Nieman included a wide range of material that is covered throughout the exams. In my opinion, taking this course is almost a guaranteed way to pass your LARE exams.”

-Kelsey Kanspedos, PA-DE ASLA Western Section Co-Chair
