Re: Maryland Home Improvement Exam

The real exam has about 60 questions. Read and study the books, mostly the appendix (the actual written MD code section), in addition to the individual chapters. Its multiple choice, and many of the answers are very similar, so choose wisely. The test is open book, it took me about 40 minutes to take the test, and double check all my answers. I think they give you 4 hours. I never took the practice exam.

Re: Maryland Home Improvement Exam

Just to add there MIGHT be an actual question about home improvement, maybe. As in ( like me) you need a MHIC to apply wall paper or paint, I believe there was one question concerning that aspect.As stated it is all about the boring codes and crap we could care less about

Re: Maryland Home Improvement Exam

Where do I find the test booklets for the MHIC. I noticed that PSI does not offer any.

I didn't have time to find exactly what you need but it's located somewhere below on the Maryland website.
