I've been studying every waking minute for this exam. I take it this Saturday for my first and hopefully only time. Any advise from anyone who has taken the new exam. I'm currently using Learn Appraising.com. Right now I'm just stressing out. My mind is Mush!

Stress can kill you. Breathe in, breathe out... Learnappraising.com is a good source to study from. If you can pass the practice exams you can pass the states exam. You should be fine.:Eyecrazy:

Mmmm....New (Florida) appraiser trainee, soon to take the Cert test. I wish you Lots of Luck. But all you all need to know if your appraising in Florida, Is..."Would You like Fries with That Sir"

Your Five years late getting a license and a lot of dollars short here in FL.

Is that what you now do for a living? I appreciate such a positive comment. It motivates me more than you know. And to bad for you I live in your area and will soon be your competition. I wish you lots of luck! And no I would not like fries with that, but thanks for asking.

Remember the test makers aren't appraisers:

Typical GC exam question:

If net income is $120 and the capitalization rate
is 8%, the market value is ?

a)$1500
b)$1000
c)$1400
d)$2000

Make sure you remember to divide and multiply
according to the rules of arithmetic. Lenders want
more appraisers, so does ASB and AF.

There are 15 questions on the exam that are NOT counted. You will not know which ones they are unfortunately. My guess, they are the really really really hard ones. The test is unbelievably hard. I detest the way they word the questions. I had studied learnappraisal.com and compucram for a solid two months.. practiced almost every day at from one to 5 hours.

Definitions, Depreciation, Income Approach.... DO lots of math problems. On learn appraisal... practice the Cert Gen Questions.... after you master all the Cert Res.

this was the hardest test I have EVER taken in my life and be ready to hunker down for the total 6 hours

good luck
