ARE Vignette Tips & Questions

Below is a list of common tips and tricks for each vignette section.

Like I’ve said throughout the website, I believe the vignette section of each ARE exam division is the most important section because there is such a small margin for error with the vignettes. One major mistake on a vignette may cause you to fail the entire exam division, regardless of how well you did on the multiple-choice.

I strongly feel that if you can understand and pass the vignette sections of each ARE exam, you’ll be in great shape to pass the entire division.
