Frequently asked questions

Are definitions included in this exam prep product?

The flashcard exam contains over 650+ appraisal glossary definitions.

Are the exams flagged by topic?

Every question has been associated with one of the main topics that the national exam is based on.

What is the national exam minimum passing score?

The Appraiser Qualifications Board develops and maintains the National Uniform Licensing and Certification Examinations. Scores are reported to candidates as scaled scores. Scaled scores can range from 0 to 110, with 75 representing passing. Examinations change over time. Each examination may vary in difficulty, with one examination easier or more difficult than other examinations. However, when converting raw scores to scaled scores, it should not make a difference whether candidates take an easier or more difficult examination. With the mathematical adjustment, the scaled score accounts for differences by adjusting the scores up or down depending on the difficulty of the examinations. When these adjustments are made, the effect is to produce an unbiased and constant passing standard that does not change from one examination to another. A scaled score is not a percentage score, but simply a transformation of a raw score to report comparable results when examinations vary in…

Are these exams customizable, or are they set exams?

All exams in the program have some level of customization.  Progress exams you can retake, or review questions missed, questions right or the full exam.  Flashcards are fully customizable as you will determine the number of cards you want to review and each time the cards are randomly pulled from the bank of cards.  Final exams can be used to create custom exams by topic, by questions missed, questions correct.  There are unlimited options.

Just passed my licensed appraiser test. Woot woot! I used McKissock from the very first online class thru exam prep. First time go on everything. I did the final exam prep tests once each, then redid the three which I scored below 80 one more time. I passed!

McKissock has been my #1 choice in education for over seven years. They also provided the complete educational package I needed to become a Pennsylvania Licensed Salesperson. I love the variety of course options, competitive pricing, and first-class customer service. I speak with a real, live person any time I call!

Because I work on a variety of assignments, McKissock’s new class material has been very helpful to me. No one wants to take the same course material every two years.
