Your decision to take the final step to become a fully qualified architect and sit the Part 3 exam is a daunting journey into the unknown. This fully updated 3rd edition of the Part 3 Handbook demystifies the process of qualifying and offers genuine insight into what examiners really want.

This brand new edition features:

• Detailed advice on professional development, the case study, the written and the oral exam including what to do when things go wrong

• More examples of actual exam questions and answers, both good and bad, with annotations pinpointing the dos and don’ts of good exam technique

• Up-to-date guidance on the Professional Criteria for Part 3, the most recent contract documents and the RIBA Plan of Work 2013

• What happens after Part 3 and what it means to be an architect including the professional and regulatory context and the latest RIBA CPD Guidelines

• Guidance for mentors including best practice and responsibilities

Endorsed by the RIBA and written by an experienced practitioner, Professional Studies Advisor and Part 3 examiner, this is the essential guide to completing the Part 3 qualification. It is indispensable for current Part 3 students as well as those considering undertaking Part 3.

Customer Reviews

James Summerfield M. Ed, BSc (Hons), MCIOB, FHEA Course Leader BSc Construction Programmes University Centre Blackburn College

Date Reviewed: December 2014

This book is particularly useful for undergraduate students who are developing their knowledge of the RIBA Plan of Work 2013. Each of the stages of the RIBA plan is clearly described and the supplementary material at the end of each section provides additional information regarding the role requirements of a lead designer.

The clarity of the text makes this book a useful supportive resource for undergraduates who are entering the construction management profession.

Dr James Benedict Brown, Architectural Educator

Date Reviewed: November 2014

Brookhouse is an experienced architect and teacher, and the step-by-step annotations of example essay questions and answers are clear evidence of his appreciation of students requirements. Sections on every aspect of the examination (written, interview and case study) have been revised and expanded, including sample questions and detailed analysis of how to read the questions accurately. Revisions have also been made to bring the book up to date with the 2013 RIBA Plan of Work.

Having also written Professional Studies in Architecture: A Primer targeted at students on RIBA Part 1 and Part 2 validated courses) Brookhouse is well aware of the requirement for taught students to be introduced to the professional aspects of architectural practice at the earliest possible moment. While the Part 3 Handbook is unlikely to initially appeal to university students of architecture, its accessibility makes a vital handbook not only for graduates starting their post-Part-2 careers, but also those students with the foresight to proactively choose or design their early career path with RIBA Part 3 qualification in mind. In other words, don't wait until you enrol on that Part 3 course to start reading this helpful guide.
