Go into your "bunker" and do nothing but study, do practice exercises and exams using the Hondros stuff ALL DAY EVERY DAY between now and then. Good luck!I go Wednesday this coming week to take it for my 4th time. I bought the exam crammer by Hondros College and it seems to be helping me remember things more than a book or any other material that I've looked at. I'm just ready to be done!
Study up, you will get it.Got my results today. Still didn't pass. Only improved by 1 point. It seems as though the areas I'm struggling in are Real Estate Market, Sales Comparison Approach, and Cost Approach. I've got the Practice Examination Questions for Real Estate Appraisers Book from the Appraisal Institute, Steve Williamson's software, and other study materials. I can assure that I've been putting in the time and effort, but I'm at my wits end now.
The HP-12C should still be relevant - I found it to be the invaluable for appraisal calculations. For the test it’s very important that you Memorize the math FormulasAlso I am struggling with the math. Did everyone use a financial calculator and of all the different study materials does anyone have a good exam math prep course that also does a review of how to use the financial calculator?
I took like 3 different classes on that calculator so the trainee could probably get at least one class online now maybe from somewhere. I love my hp12c. The manual on the hp12c is kinda difficult to follow, so an online class if it is available would help. The calculator will do way more than a person would ever need in appraisal work. And the manual covers all that and is not written for the average reader. There has to be more than one appraisal education provider that provides a course online.
