Professor Ermann, I just had to write and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the letter I just got from NCARB…I passed BS!!!!!!!!!!!! This was the last of all my exams and the 3rd time I have taken it. I quit my job the 2nd time to study for it and still failed. This time I was working, had to attend my Grandfather’s funeral out of state in the middle of studying and am 7 months pregnant, but thanks to your course, I finally PASSED!!! To say I am elated is an understatement. Now I can focus on my son who will be arriving shortly and finally call myself a licensed architect!!! And none of that would have been possible without your [online] course and personal guidance. Not only was your seminar interesting and easy to follow, the fact that you personally called me when I had questions blew me away. Thank you again!
Thanks for your great course. I would not have understood all the concepts BS covers had I just studied out of standard prep material. I took the exam on Tuesday. I think the Online Amber Seminar captures around 80% of what we get tested on, Coming back from the exam I realized that it’s not just knowing the material, but understanding it at a “curve ball question proof” level. Thanks again, [then one week later. . . .] I passed! Everything you claim works. Unbelievable.
Hello! Just wanted to let you know that I passed with flying colors. It was the exam I felt the most confident taking. This online video course was invaluable, especially with all of the animations. I am recommending it to all of my friends who haven’t taken BS yet!
Hello, I would like to say thank you for helping me pass my building systems exam! The videos were very helpful and reinforced the knowledge I would need to pass the exam. I also found the videos very helpful for my practice of architecture in general. The videos also made me excited about learning about the building science. I am much more confident when talking with MEP engineers and I hope to apply some of the principles that I learned in the videos to daily practice. Thanks!!!
Thanks for the videos, I got my pass Today. I watched them twice and took notes, very helpful! I doubt I could have absorbed that much information from a book.
Michael, I took your advice, my exam was Sunday and I just got my results today and its a PASS! You are a genius and do a great job of breaking down concepts making them simple. I recommend your ONLINE CLASS to everyone as I pressed rewind when I did not grasp certain concepts. This was my re-take but your class took me to the next level and thanks. This is a proud moment for both of us and your work has not gone in vane. Please continue the good work because us/the ARE Building Systems Candidates need you. THANKS!
Hello Michael, I wanted to let you know that I took the exam and passed! I followed your advice and took it two weeks after your course and a lot stuck. Thank you for the success. One more test for me. You gave me a great basis for understanding the different systems that were on the test. The group diagrams outside stuck in my mind clearly and still do.
Hi Michael! Just wanted to drop a line about my PASS!!!!!!! Thank you very much for your guidance and encouragement. This was the third time around, but I do believe using your online seminar helped tremendously in finally passing BS. You covered all the content areas, and actually made it fun and engrossing so that I forgot I was studying for an ARE test. I took the test on January 23rd, found out the following Friday, the 30th, that I passed…and then had my 3rd child later that day too! It was my final ARE to officially make me a RA. It was an exciting Friday to say the least! Baby 3 is doing well and we are getting back to a normal schedule. Best wishes with your continued teaching. I think many of us are ever so grateful for your seminar. Thank you again!!!
Professor Ermann, I passed my Building Systems exam! Thanks so much for the wonderful [online] course. I wish something like this was available for all of the exam sections – it made studying so much easier and enjoyable, compared to pouring through stacks of books, not knowing if you’re focusing your energy in the right direction. I took your course, peeked at a few notes on communications/security systems, and read over the ADA bathroom dimensions. That was pretty much it. Thanks again for the hard work you’ve put into this resource. I will definitely recommend it to my friends and colleagues who are testing. I’ve got a full time job and couple of little kids – I’m trying to be efficient with this process! I know I’m not the only one. The two week intensive study plan was exactly what worked for me.Only one left, Building Design and Construction Systems!
I received my pass notification today for Building Systems. Thanks for the excellent [online] seminar- I learned so much.
I just found out yesterday that I passed! I’m very excited about this and wanted to thank you guys for all of your help. I could not have done it without the [online] seminar.
I wanted to let you know that I passed the Building Systems exam; received my score results this past Friday. It was my last exam and I have officially completed the ARE process! Thank you for providing the Amber Seminar videos on such short notice, essentially two weeks prior to my exam. I got through each video twice and do not think I would have been able to pass without the videos. Thank you!
I passed! I had failed it once before I bought your class, so I wanted to do everything I could to pass it the second time around. Thank you so much for such an entertaining and educational seminar!
I have raved about your seminar. The fact I passed on the first try was all because of you and your course. I had a professor who was shocked I took it first and passed. He said it is the most difficult.
Hi Michael, I took your Amber Seminar this past November in NYC, took my exam 3 weeks later and passed!!! This was my first ARE exam and I did not study anything prior to your seminar. I really enjoyed your class and would recommend it to future Building Systems exam takers. Hope you enjoyed the holidays! Thanks!
