Hey guys,

I am ready to take my FHA test this week. ( :? Getting a little nervous...) Is the exam multi-choice and/or essay?

Thanks,
Patti in Chino Valley :D

Essay??? For FHA. They'd never be able to grade it. We'd all get 100% because if you call FHA with a question, you'll get different answers each time for the same question.

Seriously though, it's multiple choice. Just keep reading 4150.2, , the Appraisers FAQ and the HOC Reference Guide over and over

Good luck.

Ben

Thanks Ben for the info. I had not even noticed the HOC Reference Guide. And while I was groaning about printing out another large handbook, I noticed this reference guide appears just to have the same info as the handbook. (Thank God...don't know if my little brain can store anymore info at this time...) Just a good review for me after the handbook and 200 FHA questions.

Thanks again.

Patti,

Don't get yourself all flustered. It's an easy test, if you've done your homework. I think you have 90 minutes to complete it. Sit back, relax and you'll pass it the first time around.

pgerarde,

It is easy. Just look up the answers to each question and study the questions. I completed the exam in 8 minutes +/-. 50 MC questions. On most, I did hnot even have to ready the full question as I recognized it and its answer.

This exam is intended to force you to read the handbook. Don't sweat it!

:D Thanks Brad.

I am starting to feel less and less nervous about this test. When they told me I had 1 1/2 hours to do the test, I suddenly thought "this must be really hard if they give me that much time..."

Thanks again for the feedback.

Patti in Chino Valley :lol:

Patti,
Just remember this....they can't skin you and eat you. :wink:
Do your best, and you'll probably pass. If not, just study some more and do it again.
Best of luck!

50 questions, all multiple choice done on a computer. If you study the exam prep book with, as I recall, 200 sample questions..you should be able to pass it easily. The hard part was the "strip search" prior to the test.
