any advice? How specific do I need to be when studying/memorizing USPAP? what do I need to bring with me besides a basic calculator?
I've been studying with learnappraising.com..any other suggestions?

Thanks...and cross your fingers for me!

It's been so long I don't remember too much, but I don't remember having to cite USPAP sections. You might need an HP12c calculator for the math. I remember math problems, real estate principle problems, and laws and regs type questions. It was a hard test, so study study study, but don't be too upset if you don't pass. I don't think the pass rate is very high. What I understand is they will let you take it again at a discounted rate not too long after if you need to. I'd be more worried about getting a good supervisor right now.

Testing Advice

I took the test 2.5 years ago and don't remember it very well. When I came across a question that was going to take time to think about, I wrote down the question number on my scratch paper. That allowed me to zip through the test and then go back to the tough ones later.

A study disk from my school really helped me, I don't remember the questions now. I hope that you pass!

By the way, why are you trying to be an appraiser in this market? I'm still a trainee myself.

GOOD LUCK!
