Kaplan Architecture Education is now Brightwood Architecture Education. We are working to provide you with the best possible exam prep materials for the Architect Registration Exam® (ARE®). Brightwood is committed to supporting you through your journey to become a licensed architect. You will continue to receive the same industry-leading exam prep you’ve come to expect from Kaplan Architecture Education, led by the same instructors and support staff you’ve relied on to help you reach this important milestone.
Brightwood Architecture now offers exam prep products for all six divisions of the ARE 5.0. The 5.0 exam was released by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) in November of 2016. Whatever your exam schedule strategy may be, Brightwood has the tools you need to pass. We will continue to offer materials for the ARE 5.0 and the ARE 4.0 concurrently until the 4.0 exam is retired.
Brightwood is a proud partner of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We are involved with various AIA national and component chapter activities, the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS), as well as other professional organizations. These partnerships keep us abreast of industry trends, news, and changes affecting the architecture community. In addition, AIA reviews our products to ensure they are in line with the ARE guidelines set by NCARB.
Brightwood Architecture Education is focused on student success and is continuing Kaplan Architecture’s tradition of excellence in exam preparation.
