EndorsementsCandidates using Amor Study Guides have accrued in excess of an 80% pass rate on applicable exams, where rates were able to be confirmed. William boasts over a 90% pass rate on exams for which he has tutored candidates one-on-one. (William has taught several seminars for the CAB Supplemental Exam, after which 100% of the participants reported having passed the exam!)

Both the Executive Director of the AIA Los Angeles and the Executive Director of the AIA Orange County recommend William's educational methods and materials, and both have expressed appreciation for his work in educating architecural board exam candidates.

What others are saying...

I had problems finding good, concise study material for Pre-design and MEP. Bill, your material is an inspiration to anyone who wants to pass the A.R.E. The material is well-prepared, with a great amount of meaningful substance and no fancy fluff. It focuses tightly on codes and life-safety issues and prepares any intern to pass over that 75% mark. This is the best study material for all divisions, not just for the building and site design graphic sections. Thanks, Bill, for taking architectural education seriously."

William, I passed the Oral Exam. I heard your tapes (over and over on a treadmill), used your Study Guide, and attended your seminar. Your material goes well into the 'new' Oral Exam, which seemed to me to be logical, but I've been an architect for twenty-five years in Nebraska. Your material is of 'great value' in understanding the practice in California. Without it, I would never have understood the complex situation here. Thank you.

William, I just got the news from CAB that I passed the exam. Thank you again. I truly believe that I could not have passed this exam without your book, tapes, seminar and tutoring.

I want to thank you for the excellent work you do. I purchased your book and tapes as a study reference for the California Supplementary Examination. As a result, I passed!!! I highly recommend your materials for any candidate that is serious about passing. Keep up the good work.

I recently attended your Supplemental Exam Seminar. While discussing previous seminar passing rates, you mentioned that one class had even performed at a 100% pasing rate. I was afraid I'd throw your high return rates, assumed I'd be the only one in the seminar who just couldn't pass this demon. I passed! I couldn't have done it without you. The seminar, book, and tapes gave me focus on the relevant issues which is the hardest part of attempting to study for test. I studied relentlessly, practically memorized your book and, most importantly, gained an innate understanding of the AIA contract documents. I was completely thrown when exact questions weren't asked by the jury, but now realize that rote learning is not as appropriate as an overall sense of the architectural practice. Thank you for your guidance.

Hello Mr. Amor. I hope you remember me. I took your private tutoring class in August and I passed the test in September. Thanks for your help.

William: I wanted to let you know the good news. I PASSED the Supplemental Exam! I want to thank you for all your help. I am certainly glad that I had it. I hope our professional paths cross again in the not-too-distant future.
