SUPERSEDED 2021 EDITION of the best-selling notary prep guide to the difficult Louisiana exam. (NOTE: This one is keyed to the blue 2021 state textbook. Look for the newer, purple one elsewhere on this website.) The Louisiana Notary Exam averages a 20% pass rate. The Notary Exam has an official Study Guide you use during the exam. But the Study Guide has no index, no big picture, no study strategies, no exam-day tips, not enough cross-references . . . and few of the forms notaries use that they test. It doesn't explain most-tested subjects, past exams, or recent changes to the Guide. It's got the law and notary rules, but it's missing essentials for any such textbook.
This book has all that-and much more that anyone contemplating the exam should read. It even includes crucial information about notary practice for the newbie notary, and is useful to experienced notaries for its expanded cross-references, complete index, and summary lists. Basically it's the rest of the official Study Guide they somehow omitted. Why would they leave out the index, of all things? Reminder: a 20% pass rate.
As a senior law teacher and member of two state bars, Professor Childress still needed to pass the Louisiana Notary Exam to practice as one. It's a challenging exam for everyone, yet he found in the 'Study Guide' lots of trees but little forest-and even less real guidance. Determined that current test-takers can do better with more real help, he wrote this book and geared the page numbers-including an index, cross-references, lists, and illustrated explanation of successions, community property, wills, and authentic acts-to the latest edition of the state's official text, Fundamentals of Louisiana Notarial Law and Practice.
An affordable addition to the Self-Study Sherpa Series from Quid Pro Books, that actually pays for itself twice over with its 'one weird trick' saying how to save $65 in fees in the notary qualification process. This is the trade paperback edition available at online and other bookstores.
