    welcome from downeast Maine!

    check with your local APA chapter about AICP - also their website?

    I hope you find employment soon!

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!

    Check with your local APA chapter for study guides, exam prep, etc. Most chapters are a good resource!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Greetings from a NorCal native transplanted to teh Florida panhandle. Long story.

    Hint: AICP is not such a big deal in California, based on my experience.
