ARE Advisor Vignette Series – SPD Vignette Guide

Welcome to the SPD Vignette Guide, a part of the ARE Advisor Vignette Series.

SPD 01 - General

I’d like to introduce you to this downloadable eBook that is designed to walk you through the site design and site grading vignettes step-by-step!

Like I’ve said throughout this site, I believe that the vignette portion of every ARE test is by far the most critical in terms of passing the ARE. One missed element could cause you to fail the entire exam division and thus, $210 down the drain.

What Is the SPD Vignette Guide eBook?

What I’ve done with the SPD Vignette Guide eBook is broken down and analyzed both the site design and site grading vignettes so that you know EXACTLY what to expect. NCARB has provided free sample programs on their website but to be honest, they don’t do a very good job telling you what you actually need to do.

That’s where this guide comes in!

By taking a step-by-step approach to solving the site design and site grading vignettes, you can have a detailed understanding of what you’ll need to solve on test day.

How Will This eBook Help You?

In addition to the step-by-step breakdown of what you need to do to pass the site design and site grading vignettes, you’ll see actual screenshots and images from the NCARB practice software as we go along.

Being able to see these images as you progress through the practice vignette are truly unique and are a great resource when preparing for the vignettes.

How Can I Get the eBook?

By following the link below, you are able to purchase the SPD Vignette Guide for only $19.99.

Once the purchase is complete, you will receive an email containing a link for your download. You will be able to download the eBook in PDF format where you can access it from any computer.



An Inside Look at the SPD Vignette Guide

Here are a few snapshots from the SPD Vignette Guide. Before getting into the step-by-step breakdown of the site design and site grading vignettes, the guide covers general guidelines for working with the NCARB practice program.

  • In addition to the tools related to the NCARB program, the vignette guide will analyze the given sample program and requirements for the vignettes. This way, you can have a better idea on what to expect come exam day.

Now Is The Time!

Many ARE candidates wait until the last minute to prepare for the vignettes because they are too busy studying for the multiple-choice. I’m a firm believer that you should prepare just as long for the vignette section as you do for the multiple-choice. Remember, one critical error on the vignette can cause your entire ARE exam to be failed.

The ARE Advisor SPD Guide will certainly help you get on the right track in terms of your vignette preparation. Not only does it describe to you what needs to be included in the site design and site grading vignettes, but it also gets in to HOW you implement these elements.

Trust me, this is a wonderful resource to help you prepare for the ARE vignettes and the price is dirt cheap!

My Promise To You

Having just gone through the ARE process myself, I can certainly understand your stress level when it comes to passing all of these tests. At the time, I was not satisfied with the quality of resources available relating to the vignette section.

I am a strong believer in the importance of the vignette sections and I feel that most ARE candidates underestimate it. By creating the ARE Advisor Vignette Series for test candidates, my goal is to better prepare all candidates for the site design and site planning vignettes.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I’m always here to help!

Thanks and Good Luck!
