Does any one know if the residential License test is that much easier than the certified test ???

I let my license expire and now have to take another test.

I past the certified test 9 years ago but I hear it much harder NOW than it was back then.


Comments Please !!!


Thanks,


Tom

Logic would say the certified should be more difficult.

Tom,

try this website: wwwquizprep.com

I used their practice test when I was preparing for my lic. exam. They have Licence, as well as Certified exams for all states. It was the best thing I did for myself in order to study for my Massachusetts exam.

Good luck!

Tom,

IMO, just do the Certified and make your life in appraising easier. It can't be that much harder... I don't think. Take a good prep course and/or get the books. Just do it.

I found the Certified test to be harder, but when I took the licensing test, I had just finished my course work, and had all the little details still in my head. When I took the certification test, I hadn't taken any basic courses recently, and only gave myself about five days to study. That is probably the most important advice, give yourself enough time to get ready and you will be fine.

When I took my General Certified test, the main problem was that the "expert" who wrote the test used stuff from the Northeast for a Texas test (NOBODY in Texas uses Range/Township - it doesn't exist). The terminology was the issue. So, yeah, get a prep book for your state's test (BTW, Texas licesnses its test for other states) and just be prepared. And , oh yeah, read the question carefully. They like to do "How many were going to St. Ives" questions.

Tom,

Try REAL ESTATE TRAINERS in Santa Ana. (Just off the 22 FWY). They have a test crash course that's guaranteed you'll pass or you can take the test again. Everyone that I know that's taken the test has passed.
