Just completed the above mentioned class for CE. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at the class. It was not easy and I felt as if I learned something after taking it. I have to recommend this class.

The have test to take as you go along. I never passed a single one of them the first time. Normally I do really well on tests Past online CE classes were simple to pass. Not this one. I had to go back and look up answers and take notes to pass it.

Thanks for the tip, guys. I've had their course bookmarked and just waiting. (Apparently Michigan will now accept the online courses, but I still want to check the State's website.)

I only have one question. How do they know it's you taking the class and not say the next door neighbor?

At the end of the course you sign a certification that you completed the course without outside assistance.

If you have a high speed printer you can print all of USPAP 2003 from the McKissock Classroom in about 10-minutes.

I took an online course from the Appraisal Academy and it was awful. The content looked as if though it was just copied from overhead slides that are used in the real class. Of course with the real class you would have an instructor expanding on that content. I needed one more hour for license renewal so I took a 4 hour course. I'm in Illinois and we need to take a test when using online CE. Monday will be the 6th day and my proctor is still waiting for the test. So much for online courses providing convenience.

I should have taken a McKissock course. I noticed from their website that they have the Illinois proctor's instructions available as a PDF download and they'll fax the text to the proctor. Appraisal Academy insists that the test get mailed back and forth.

Does the class have to be completed in one session? Or can I take part of it today and part tomorrow? In other words, what if I get kicked off line, have to go to work, etc.

No Steve, at least with McKissock. You work at your own pace and check in and out of the classroom. I chose to do it from 3 a.m. until 7:45 a.m. or so, start to finish. I took notes as I went, and also did not get all the questions correct at the end of each chapter. But, you go back and review, take the test again (not the same questions) and move on. At the end, mine had a 30 question exam. I loved it and intend on taking another one Monday night, also in the wee hours of the morning. My license expires 10/31/03 and i need 5 more hours. Sure beats driving over 1 1/2 hours away there, 1 1/2 hours back, and 1 full day away from the office. Although, I'm not condoning taking ALL your hours on the internet. I think it's important to talk with other appraisers and see what's going on out there.

I still have to double check with the Sate that the on-line class is acceptable, and then I'll probably go ahead and take it. I really enjoy Mckissocks classes when I set them, so hopefully this one will be good to. :) I've still got until next July.
