HW CAN I START THIS EXAM PLS??
LARE Prep Workshop offered Sunday, February 11, 2018 9:30 AM to 5 PM Atlantic City, NJ To register for this course visit:
Fix your website!
Just went to register for Section 4 of the LARE in December. No seats available within 177 miles of where I live (33301, South Florida). Will more seats be opening up? If so, when? Thanks.
Good evening from Texas. When will results be posted from the August test?
When will results for the August administration be posted?
Question, are there any practice exams available for the new 2017 format/content which was first administered during the April Exam administration? Only in need of Section 4 if available (it's the last in the series of 4 I need to take/pass). I've got a pre-2017 format practice exam that CLARB offered prior to the change for each of the 4 sections but was curious if new ones were available for the updates this year. Took Section 3 in April and there was enough of a noticeable change in the question content/format/focus of the pre-2017 practice exams to the new actual exam that I figured it was worth asking about. Potentially taking Section 4 in Mid-August sometime; haven't scheduled anything yet - still thinking about it/deciding and I know the registration deadline for the August exam administration is quickly approaching. If available, let me know. I'd like to at least look into the prospects of purchasing the new Section 4 practice if it's something that is out there. On previous sections I used the practice exams as a general guide to understanding the focus of the questions so I kind of knew what to expect - it's just nice to be able to reference during prep. I also reached out and sent an email just before this to the contact I've got at the CLARB office who handles my Professional Council Record. Any information on this matter would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance, Kellen Mescher
