Happy New Year from CSE Landscape Architect

Happy New Year

2103 is now upon us and it looks like the Mayas were wrong.

The world did not end in 2012.

2013 will be an “odd” year. I mean odd in all the right ways. You can make 2013 your best year ever!

Well, if you were putting of getting your landscape architect license in California because you feared the world would end, you are out of excuses.

2013 is the Year of the Landscape Architect

2013 is going to be the best year ever for landscape architects.

We finally are expanding our profession and getting traction in areas typically dominated by engineers…and the world is noticing.

Landscape architects are more prominent in the news and in the arts media than we have ever been.

We are about to hit the convergence point where great things happen…both for landscape architects and the public at large.

If you have yet to pass the California Supplemental Exam for landscape architects and get your license, make a New Year’s resolution to make it happen in 2013.

Looking Back on 2012

2012 was a great year for CSE Landscape Architect. The site launched on January 6th of 2012 and has consistently grown with great content to help aspiring landscape architects pass the California Supplemental Exam and become license professionals in California.

The first study guide to help landscape architecture candidates pass the California licensing exam was published last November. Thank you for everybody who purchased the study guide and your kind words of encouragement.

CSE Landscape Architect ended the year with the wildly successful 12 Days of Quizzes.

There is even more to come.

My New Year’s Resolutions for You

2013 will bring even more great articles and study guide resources to help you prepare for the CSE and get your license.

My resolutions for CSE Landscape Architect for 2013 are:

  1. Create an audio study guide for the CSE
  2. Continue to provide great articles about topics you may find on the California Supplemental Exam for landscape architects
  3. Publish the definitive sample test study guide that gives detailed explanations for the correct answers.

Thank You for Your Support in 2012
