SUPERSEDED 2022 EDITION of the best-selling notary prep guidebook to the difficult Louisiana exam. If you're using the green 2023 state study guide, look for the 2023 edition of this book on this site instead. Purchase this 2022 version only if you're using the purple 2023 guide.
The Louisiana Notary Exam has 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's notoriously hard to follow. It doesn't explain most-tested subjects, past exams, or recent changes. It's got the law and notary rules, but it's missing essentials for any such textbook.
The Sidepiece 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.
Previous editions of this resource earned 150 5-star ratings and comments that it's "essential" and "invaluable" to passing the exam, whether or not you take a prep class too. Read the reviews to get the scope, coverage, and necessity of adding this book into your study program. "The author's tips on what to expect on test day were worth the cost of the book alone. Get. This. Book."
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, 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, this book actually pays for itself with its 'one weird trick' saying how to save $65 in fees in the notary qualification process.
