Find time to research and go to the NCARB website. Read the literature. It takes a bit of time to fully understand and which path to licensure is best. And it would really depend on these factors: which state are you pursuing your initial license, which country are you from and if they'd accredit units from your Post Prof degree. It requires careful assessment before you choose the best path. 

The first step is to register for an NCARB account. Everything starts from there. Once you have done those, leave me a msg.

They are all devices to limit people from using a legally protected title.

I recommend cannabis and moderate alcohol use.

Luckily, Nevada still has/had a pencil option of the "test".

The creators of the ARE software should be put in jail.
