Recommendations before taking the test.
Before taking the 123notary.com certification test, we recommend that you purchase either a Certification Course, an Economy Loan Signing Course, or any of the Loan Signing Combos. Please visit the Loan Signing Course page for course details. The test is based on the major loan signing documents and general loan signing procedures.

The reason for advising the courses is that 60% of the people who took our test without studying from my materials including those certified by other sites, failed our test. 85% of people who studied from my materials passed the test easily. Of the ones who didn't, they came very close to passing and passed their second time after studying for a few more hours. Since then, we have made the test a bit more difficult, so, without studying from my materials, you are almost guaranteed to fail.

Testing Procedures:
Tests are given online and are timed ( 6.5 minutes ) to ensure that you really know your materials. To pass, you can get only 2 wrong out of 15 questions. All of the questions are multiple choice. Please quiz yourself before the test so you know that you can answer questions quickly. Please study hard, it is not fun for me or you to not pass the first time.

All of the material in this course is also in the economy course and all loan signing combos.

If you have any questions, please call 888-838-1458.
