What you should know about NALSA

We have one objective at NALSA; to help you PASS THE ARE.SM We founded the company in 1993 in response to our own experience with the exam process. We set out on a mission to create a simple, concise, effective, and inexpensive study system to make Architect Registration Exam test preparation manageable. Our first product, Archiflash, is recognized as the industry leader in ARE study material. At NALSA, we focus only on the ARE. We are continually working to create study tools that will help you to prepare in the best way possible and PASS THE ARE. 

We understand the frustration of having worked day after day, night after night for years to finally get your degree, only to face another seemingly insurmountable hurdle…the ARE. We know that the exam process is overwhelming, we've been there. We are ARE experts, and industry professionals, who are eager to share with you our knowledge, experience and insight. We are available to you by phone and email to answer any questions you may have about the Architect Registration Exam and our study tools, as well as to listen and provide you with exceptional Candidate cARE.

For more than ten years, we worked closely with our dear friend and colleague Professor Norman Dorf. Before his untimely death in mid-2007, he called upon us to continue his work and legacy. We are proud to be able to bring you his insightful lectures about the ARE graphic vignettes, and to build upon his work – all of which is designed specifically to prepare you to pass the ARE graphic vignettes.

Our mission is to help you PASS THE ARE and get on with your life and your career as an architect. We know there are other Architect Registration Exam prep companies out there who boast that they are the industry leader, that they offer the best. We will let you be the judge. For twenty years, we have helped tens of thousands of candidates successfully complete the ARE. We know this because they tell us. We are thrilled every time we're told " I passed", thanks!  We look forward to hearing from you too.

We wish you the best in your endeavors and encourage and value your feedback. This enables us to continually improve our study tools and keep you informed and better prepared to PASS THE ARE.
