First of all, hello to this great forum, very helpful and informative. I am a newbie and have work waiting for me once I finish the courses.

I am taking my USPAP class this weekend. But am feeling the anxiety building up. What to expect?
Can anyone give me some insight on what the major topics I should be studying for? The History? Concepts? Or start reading the immense amount of pages?:unsure:

The USPAP class will be a two day intensive, with the exam to follow on the second day. What should I do to prepare? Any heads up would be appreciated. Thanks to anyone who can comment. Take care...

Not wanting to sound elementary, the best thing you can do is pay close attention in the class, use a highliter if that kind of thing helps you, read and study the book (which will become your bible in the future) and then study a bit more.

Study the definitions! :eek:

My experience this year is that most people have done better than they expected on the test.

good luck to you.... mary a. :D

Follow Mary's advice.

As a former USPAP instructor I would add the following:

1. Go through USPAP 2003 noting the way the document is laid out.
2. Read the forward and preamble.
3. Read the definitions and glossary.
4. Follow the new student manual, good stuff, pretty well written, and laid out the way the course will be taught.
5. Relax and follow the instructor as he/she goes through the material.
6. Use a highlighter and a red marker. Any thing they tell you will be a test question underline in red. Other stuff you find important "highlight in yellow".
7. Don't get up tight about the test.

I wish you well!

Thank you Mary and Mike, Can't help the test anxiety, it was like that all through college as well. If I could avoid it, I certainly would. But I have confidence to keep it in check. Thank you again. -kc
