Taking the examination book
In the years since the first edition of this book was published, the LARE has been completely converted to a computer-based test. CLARB and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) have provided examples of the types of questions that people will encounter on the exam on their websites and CLARB has videos that show the computer format that is used to administer the test so that they can familiarize themselves prior to the test date. Most designers shy away from site grading because the concepts involve more math than design. The best way to conquer the apprehension caused by math problems is through practice; repetition of the simple subjects such as finding slopes and interpolation and, more importantly, doing as many grading vignettes as possible. The purpose of the LARE is to test basic grading competency.
