When I was taking my Construction Documents & Services exam I was insanely nervous. It was the first exam on my road towards licensure and I couldn’t deal with the idea of failing. I spent hundreds of dollars on resources to help me prepare for the exam. I retained all the material I studied, but didn’t know how well it would align with the actual exam. I kept thinking that if I failed I wouldn’t know where to start when I got back to studying for the same exam.
I sat down at the testing computer and clicked into the exam. The first few questions were literally the most insanely difficult questions I’ve ever gotten on an exam. I was mortified. But after few minutes, my nerves subsided and I plugged away for two hours on the multiple choice questions.
Still, when I left the testing center and had to wait for my results… Which seem to take forever. And I kept wondering did I just flush more than $500 down the toilet?
I ended up receiving a pass on the exam. Yet, I couldn’t help but feel a little bit betrayed and taken advantage of by the resources I payed so much money for. Some of them were very helpful and others were simply a waste of money. I didn’t feel that anyone was going through this with me and I was confused that no one was standing behind their product with a guarantee.
I think that’s crazy. You shouldn’t have to spend thousands of dollars in resources alone to become a registered architect.
This bundle of CDS practice exams has a low barrier to entry and a pass guarantee (that means if you use this resource, you’ll pass). A purchase gives you unlimited access to the CDS mock exams. You can take the exams as many times as you’d like.
The CDS mock exam bundle is a 3 in 1 package that expands and contracts with your time needs.
- We all live hectic lives every now and then so there’s a 10 question pop-quiz you can take in just a matter of minutes.
- If you have a bit more time there’s a full 25 question quiz.
- There’s also a fully timed 100 question mock exam designed to simulate the multiple choice portion of the ARE 4.0 Construction Documents & Services Exam.
An Expansive Library
All questions are pulled randomly from an expansive and ever-growing library of more than 300 questions specifically related to the Construction Documents & Services exam. That’s more than 3 exams worth of questions! Our quizzes and mock exams randomly pull from this specific library so they will always be different.
Alignment w/ NCARB Content Areas
We’ve sorted all of our questions into the 4 content areas NCARB has given the CDS exam. At the end of each of your mock exams you’ll be able to see your percentage for each of those categories. This will help you assess what content areas you’re best at and which ones could use a little work.
At the end of the exams all of the questions will display by clicking the ‘view questions’ button so you can see what you got right and wrong. Each answer is accompanied by an explanation and some even include links for you to learn more about a particular topic you may be struggling with.
Competition can drive us to do amazing things. After completing the 100 question mock exam you’ll be able to see the leaderboard of the top scores for the exam. If you’ve achieved a high score yourself and want to enter onto the leaderboard, you can do that too.
We implemented an achievement and point system to reward you as you study for the exam. The leaderboard mentioned above lets you compete for a specific exam, but there’s also a global leaderboard based on this point system. The CDS exam bundle has achievements that can only be unlocked through this practice exam.
On The Go
I know you’re busy. It can be hard to set aside time to study. That’s why the exams are mobile-friendly so you can take them with you wherever you go.
To keep things interesting and lively there are different kinds of questions in the practice exams. Some single choice, some select all that apply, some open answer (like the exam), and a little bit of sorting to the correct order. The goal of the exam bundle is not always to exactly replicate the conditions of the exam but to make it fun, interesting, and teach the information needed to pass the MC portion of the exam.
We believe in our CDS exam bundle so much that if you achieve at least a 90% score in our 100 question mock exam but still fail the multiple choice portion of the CDS exam, we’ll refund your money for this exam bundle in full.
