Georgia LARE Review

2014 Review June 5-7 in Athens, GA


The Review will take place at CED’s Jackson Street Building, located at 285 South Jackson Street, Athens, GA. Note: While this is the correct address, the “pin” does not show up in the proper place on Google Maps. We are located next to the Jackson Street Cemetery, and if you zoom in you will see the building labeled properly.

What is the Georgia LARE Review?

Beginning in 1973, Neal Weatherly and T.G. Williams organized a comprehensive review to help practicing professionals pass what was then called the Uniform National Exam (UNE) for Landscape Architects. For over 30 years this tradition has continued, and today the College of Environment + Design at The University of Georgia continues to conduct review sessions for the Landscape Architecture Registration Exam (LARE). To honor Neal Weatherly’s contributions to the program, a student scholarship for CED landscape architecture students has been estblished in his name. To donate to the scholarship, CLICK HERE.

Today’s LARE review is based on The Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Board’s (CLARB) current job analysis survey, content outlines and book references. Each instructor prepares their review materials to specifically cover what is outlined by CLARB for each exam section. We cannot teach you everything at the review, but rather our intent is to orient you to the organization of the exam and cover as many of the subject categories as possible.

Beyond receiving instruction on exam content, participants will also learn test taking strategies and studying shortcuts. Each review participant will answer sample exam questions and/or work vignette problems that attempt to simulate the types of questions encountered on the actual exam. Several timed practice test sessions are associated with the review.

In addition to the lecture materials, each participant will be given a separate study manual for each section that is designed to serve as a take-home guide to focus their studying efforts, and a copy of the CLARB practice exam for each section.

The review for the Georgia Section of the LARE is currently offered via an instructional CD that contains information relevant to the Georgia exam. The Georgia Section review is not part of the review session.
