Hello ladies and lads,

My name is Linsey. I am the creator of the ARE Study Guide, and the companion podcast, the ARE Study Guide Podcast. I am an aspiring architect based in San Francisco, California. When I am not studying for my Architecture Exams, I enjoy playing my ukulele, loving on my dog, Lucy, and spending time with my family.

My goal with creating this Podcast and Study Guide series is to help make it easier for people to pass their Architectural Registration Exams. I am incredibly passionate about architecture, and to put it simply, my study plan is to consume as much knowledge as I can, so that I can become an exceptional architect. I imagine that you also want to become the best architect you can be. After all, this process isn’t about just passing a series of tests so that you can call yourself an, “architect.” The purpose of taking these tests is to equip yourself with the knowledge that will empower you to be great at what you do.

As I take each test, I am going to dive deep and read as much as I possible can, and in doing so, I will develop a study guide based on the information I read. These Study Guides will be available for purchase on this website. In addition, I will create a brief series of podcast episodes for each test (give or take 10 per test). You can find the podcasts available on this website, or on whichever platform you get your podcasts.

I am excited for you. This is a really amazing journey to be on. I hope I can help you along the way.

All my best,
