ARE 5.0 Transition

Michael- Well… the seminar was a month ago and today, not even 2 after taking the exam… PASS!! Wow! This is number five that I passed. Thank you for your seminar in Dallas! You made the content really easy to own by focusing on the concepts.

I Just got the news that I passed the Building Systems exam! That was my last one, so it’s all over… or is this just the beginning? I tested within 3 weeks of the seminar (could have been two but there were no spots left). Thank you very much Michael, couldn’t’ have done it without your help! Anytime I hear about a peer testing for this section of the ARE, I know where to send them.

Professor Ermann! I took your seminar in VA back in May, took my exam on June 1st and got my result today. It is a PASS! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I actually thought this exam was the easiest, ALL becasue of your seminar. Your amber vignette stratgy rocks and your seminar rocks! Thank you again!

Hi Michael! I passed the BS exam due to your seminar in Northern Virginia. Your seminar made everything click and come together making the items easy to grasp. Thanks for what you do! I truly believe I couldn’t have done it with out your seminar and the especially the lighting chart!

Professor Ermann, I took your course in January in New York and finally took the exam and got the results that I passed. I am so thankful to have taken the class and enjoyed every lesson. I’ve passed on your name to all my friends and know they will benefit the same. Thanks again.

Christine Sheridan






Michael, So you’re the first person to find out but I passed the Systems Exam. It also comes a week after passing the PPP Exam so now I’m done. Thanks a bunch for all the help. The money is well worth it.

I really enjoyed your lecture last weekend. It was extremely informative and I am recommending it to all my friends for next year when you come.

Michael, I Passed! The seminar prepared me with a good foundation for the exam. I finished both sections with around 30% of my time left to review my answers. I felt that the approach to solving the exam questions was supported by your study method and content. I am especially grateful for the “Amber Protocol” approach to the vignette. I practiced using your system several times to get a handle on how to most quickly solve the vignette, and streamline my process and to develop a sort of muscle memory with the software. The methods used for solving the vignette efficiently with the Amber protocol can also be applied to a certain extent in everyday practice. I’m glad I took your seminar. Thank You!

Michael, Just wanted to let you know that I think I did great on my exam on Monday. I don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch, but I will be shocked and devastated if I didn’t pass. Thank you so much for your fantastic seminar. It was not only an enjoyable experience, it ingrained the concepts and fundamentals to where I feel like I’ll never forget them. I’m having our ARE coordinator send out a firm-wide email highly recommending your seminar.

Will Clinton






Michael, I have no words to thank you . . . This seminar is really energizing and full of useful information for the students. I’ll definately let you know how it goes and I will definitely spread the news of your seminar…it is OUTSTANDING!!! Thanks again, it was a real pleasure to having met such a creative mind.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to come to Dallas. I will recommend your seminar to ANYBODY that I hear is preparing for this section of the ARE. it’s a must! We need more teachers like you, people that are not only brilliant on their fields, but that are also commited to pass along knowledge in innovative ways. Can’t thank you enough.

Mauricio Rojas






Prof. Ermann, I was a student in your seminar in March and couldn’t be more happy to tell you that I passed the Building Systems exam. After taking your seminar I truly felt 100% confident that I was ready to sit for the exam. I practiced the tricks for the vignette and reviewed the topics you told us to review in class but other than that I didn’t study day and night. When I sat for the exam I visualized some of the concepts you showed us in the seminar and it really helped me…I even drew some of them on the scratch paper. I want to thank you for encouraging me to take your seminar. I truly believe that it cut my studying time, the stress of studying, and the anxiety of sitting for this exam in half. I had 100% confidence going into this exam which I have never felt on any of the other exams I have taken. This was my last exam so I was thrilled to receive the PASS letter and receive notification from the state that I am officially licensed. Thank you for helping me complete that chapter in my career and start the next one as a licensed architect.

Hi Michael, I just got my BS result and it is a PASS and I am done! I just want to thank you for a great seminar. I will definitely recommend you to others. You are simply awesome!

Karin Yang






Michael, I just wanted to drop you a note and say that I passed. I hadn’t studied at all for Bldg Sys before your seminar on March 8-10. But I felt so confident coming out of it that I scheduled the exam for March 18. Your class was extremely helpful. Anyway, thank you for your help. I’m studying for the last exam right now. Almost done!

Pete Garofalo






Michael, I took my exam 2 weeks after your course and just got my results that I passed. Your course covered 70% of my questions. I thought I could have failed this part but passed. Thank you again for your course and assistance in passing my exam.
