Hi Joe,
Thats great news. I moved from your area to Virginia in 05 and took my Certified Test in VA 2007 before the change of 08. Wanted to ask you something: My daughter has recieved the letter to take her certified test next week in San Diego area. She has been studding Computer cram any else that was helpful to you? Also, she sees some postings regarding using the HP12C. Is this needed for this test now? Any other sugestions would be appreciated.

Thanks and good news.

I did not have to use my HP12c much (nothing I could not have handled by using a regular calculator). It's a long test. Six hours or something like that. Two halfs. I used all three hours getting through the first 83 questions. After a break you do the next half, 82 questions. I saw more questions regarding paired analysis than I thought I would see. Several questions regarding the Sales Comparison Approach and being able to make correct adjustments.

Overall it was just time consuming.

You weren't formerly "Joe the plumber" were you :shrug:

wait till McCain heres you were forced into the profession of a lowly appraiser all because the tax plan wouldn't allow you to purchase your own plumbing business.

I would be making money if I was a plumber. Why anyone would want to get into this business right now is beyond me.

Learnappraising.com is a favorite on this site. I used it along with all of the other literature I've accumulated over the years. The web site covers most and gets you acclimated to computer based testing, but it was missing enough elements to make me nervous during the 6 hour test.

Good Luck
