The AIA Detroit Emerging Professionals Committee has purchased the Kaplan study books and Q&A books for each of the 7 sections of the Architectural Registration Exam. Kaplan also donated to the EPC all the graphic vignette books and flashcards.
This full set of Kaplan ARE Study materials are available for you to use, free of charge. They are housed at the Lawrence Technological University library in Southfield, MI.
Although you can not remove the materials from the library, you can use them as an in-house reference material by leaving your driver's license or id with Staff at the Reference Desk.
Additionally, the EPC has heard that University of Michigan has purchased the Kaplan study guides and they are available at the North Campus Architectural Library in Ann Arbor.
