Building Design & Construction Systems (BDCS) is one of the more difficult ARE divisions that require actual working experience. You can alleviate the problem of lacking actual work experience by reading the right books and doing the right mock exams and practice questions. The problem is there is a severe shortage of ARE exam prep materials.
