I try and read and absorb as much as possible about this profession. Not sure if this fits you or not but I'm curious as to the best book you might have or recommend from your library.

My favorite so far is a book called Dissection of a Residential Appraisal Report by Calvin Moye. It's the first book I've found that explains field by field what a reviewer looks at, what an underwriter examines, what Fannie Mae expects, etc. It also explains any USPAP considerations for each field. The book points out the most common errors made by appraisers and the inter-relationships between data.

It's not in any bookstore or amazon, but you can get one at calvinmoye.com. It is definitely a good reference guide.
