Sorry, but no. The best materials out there are Appraisal Institute classes. There is no comparison. Hondros tries to teach passing the test. The AI makes you think.HONDROS LEARNING - The best materials out there.
The problems with passing the test is mostly on the MENTOR. Many trainees are being trained by people who have no business training. Does the trainee really understand Highest and Best Use? Can they write a narrative Highest and Best Use so they understand it?
Does the trainee understand how to derive GRMs and apply them correctly or reconcile them correctly? Has the MENTOR explained USPAP and how it pertains to every section of the report? Most ignore the "summarize" in SR 2-2.
Trainees today need to think that what they were taught by their mentors might be completely wrong and from of the reports I have read over the last years that is my conclusion. But no worries, the AMC idiots will accept those reports.
