Secrets to Passing Your USPAP
USPAP! The guidelines that appraisers pretend to love and care about.
In reality, how many just care about passing this appraisal exam? Probably most of you reading.
That’s why we at appraisaltests.com do what we do. We are here for the sole purpose of making sure you pass your USPAP appraisal exam.
Luckily for you, we have been in the appraisal industry a long time. What you are reading is the culmination of our past experience, surveys from students and colleagues that helped create the USPAP Exam.
Now before I spill the beans, let me address the certified appraisers reading this (because I can hear them moaning already). We get it, USPAP is the appraiser bible and we shouldn’t offer assistance to just pass the test. Although I disagree (obviously) I will agree that MOST appraisers don’t really make the connection between the abstracts in the USPAP course and the realities of their daily appraisal practice until their 3rd or 4th pass through the material and a few thousand hours out in the field. USPAP is not “learned” from the course or the exam. It will come with time, exposure to actual appraisal practice, and a few bumps in the road. Our goal here is to help the appraiser get to those bumps. So my fellow colleges, deal with it.
