NOTES FROM HENRY:
- The point of this website is NOT to study every link, but to use it to work on your weak areas, and to know where to find AICP Exam related information, including practice questions.
- If nothing else, be sure to study the Glossary of Terms and Planners near the bottom of this website before your exam.
- Use your browser’s “Find” or “Search” function to quickly find desired materials by topic on the extensive webpage.
- IMPORTANT NOTE: Apparently many of the APA Zoning Practice articles can no longer be freely downloaded, although the links below will take you to the correct web address, if you either have a subscription or want to pay to download the article.
