I get good scores on all of my courses tests and even have taken the amp practice test and passed it with no problem but I can't get passed the real one. So far I've scored a 58, 69, 62, and another 62. The sate portion took me 3 tries but I finally passed it. I'm ready to pull my hair out because I feel like I know this stuff really well but the test is so hard and tricky.

The Lake of the Ozarks is a resort area in Missouri and prices are far above the run of the mill property values not located on the lake.
