Well, its coming time for me to get serious about renewing my notary public commission. Things have changed since I received my commission. It is now manitory to take the 1 day seminar, but there is some good to that as they give you the exam right then and there.
So I was bold today and went on the site that offer a free sample exam. It is timed and has a sample 30 questions. Well, I wized through the exam but when I got my results I now know why the 1 day seminar is manitory!!!! I got a 50% and 70% is required to pass. So what this tells me if with the new rules and my "senior moments" while doing the exam --- I need to study!!
So I will be downloading the handbook, studying it and signing up for the seminar soon. Oh the free sample exams are on site: http://www.notaryclasses.com/notary/testfree
Visit the site and see how you score. Good luck!
