California appraisers need to schedule the appraisal exam from Applied Measurement Professionals. Inc. after July 1st.

Does any one know whats the different from Pearsonvue. I hope they won't make it harder.

I would bet analytical skills, income and calculation skills. Kidding. Read on.

My first exam was from Pearson. It was the old style exam before 2008. My second exam was from a diff company after the 2008 changes. Nothing changed to common sense. The exam was only diff due to 2008 "legal style" changes. It was all common sense q's.

Take your time, review, you will be OK, no matter what questions you are faced with. It is all perception in our field. Common sense rules.

Expect the exam to be tough, simply due to the times. Make it easy and simple to yourself, before you walk in, in all fashions.

I took the 2008 Certified Residential exam last week and passed. It was the same exact people and location as the first time I took the trainee test and seemed like they just changed the name to Pearsonvue. Effective July 1st, OREA is changing their provider and instructions can be found on their website.

As for the exam, it's a six hour ordeal. You get three hours, a half hour break and another three hours. It's pretty much the same questions and will be easy if you already know the income and cost approach, which you should know anyway. It's also a different format due to the length consisting of about 165 questions.
