I know people are constantly looking for info on taking the new test so I thought I would give my 2 cents!! I took the certified residential test in March and failed. I scored 89 and needed 100 to pass. I studied for it, but obviously not enough! I thought that it was a really hard test and there were a lot of questions that seemed to try and to trick you. After failing, I signed up on learn appraising .com and studied a lot! I kept going over the practice questions and studied for a couple of hours most days. I retook the test today and passed!! I would definitley recommend learn appraising.com, it was the best $59 I have ever spent!

Congrats on passing your exam. I've been cramming on their website while I wait for the state to issue my "ticket" to sit for the test for my license. Wish me luck.

The major benefit of using on-line test aids like theirs is it gets you comfortable taking computerized exams.

But, I'm having a devil of a time getting motivated for the final push when the profession is in the dumps. And it seemed like such a good idea when I started down this path two long years ago. Sheesh!

Learn Appraiser.com is a great study tool. It helped me pass the Provisional License exam the first time; which is the same exam the state gives at the License Appraiser level.

Cowboy hang in there. Two years, man I know the feeling, but things are sure to turn around and you will be in the perfect position to take advantage of it. Good Luck.

Cowboy Steve, Mack is right, hang in there! The market will pick back up eventually, and when it does you will be licensed and ready! I looked at the slow time as more time to study!

Learningappraising.com is a great site. It, along with other resources, allowed me to ace my licensing exam in 07.

I did struggle with my Certification exam in 08, yet I managed to get 89%. LA offered most everything I needed to know yet it was not up to date with some of the calculations requested on the 2008 version of the Certification exam. I am referring to the AZ exam, not sure how different the exam is in other states. I am guessing that the site has been more updated since I took it back in February based on user experience.

Not to butt in on your question to Evan.....

but did you see the thread about the question for the certified general test on the acreage and the three different types of use?

That type of stuff. Know algebra. I think that's what he meant (although I should not speak for him).

You need to learn how to apply the income approach, cost approach, sales approach, USPAP etc in real world situations. Those are the kinds of questions you will face.

On the old exam prior to 08, you only needed to learn the appraisal concepts. For the 08 exam, you need to actually be able to apply the principals. That is the main difference between the old and the new. It's a good thing.
