Will get you through the certificated exam for signing agents and that's the main point of a test prep book. This one does the job of readying you for the test, which may be taken on-line or in a live or video class. One also needs the current, individual state laws, but they are listed at SigningAgent on the National Notary Association site. As the other review mentions, this book is only Parts I and II and since Part III is still available for free so there should be no problem getting all the info. The loan signing agent is a fairly recent development in the field ... the notary serving as an independent, third party to real estate loans and re-finance transactions.

The set of forms included - and a home loan could take 25 to 35 sets of documents - can even be xeroxed and, with a couple of friends who are good sports, you can practice doing a mock signing. Well, it might be good practice for them too.

This is an interesting skill, certainly not very difficult to learn, much easier than learning a foreign language, and a really useful way to expand my growing notary business. In my state of California, notaries earn the highest fees for this service, (between two and three hundred dollars plus processing and travel fees), although other states have remunerative fees above those for signatures on typical forms. A tip about this book: you cannot undertake the signing agent exam without a notary commission number or even purchase a study guide. But with an inexpensive, used copy from Amazon, you can study and prepare while you await your commission, if you are a first timer, and then take the exam almost immediately after you receive it, as I did. And a loan signing usually takes from 45 minutes to an hour and a half.

A criticism that I have of this book is in the description. It is misleading to describe this book as "complete". One would assume that this is the only book needed to pass the Notary Signing Agent Certification exam. While it may prepare you for Parts I and II, the exam consists of 3 parts. Part III tests your knowledge of your state's notary laws. You will fail the certification exam if you fail this part. Knowing the notary laws for your state is a prerequisite. In order to become a certified notary signing agent you need more than this book.

If you are a Notary Public and want to expand your knowledge, this is a good coursebook. Notary Signing Agents review loan documents to make sure that they are signed in the proper places. This is more than what your average Notary Public, say at a currency exchange, is equipped to do, and it can be more profitable. This book covers all that a Notary Signing Agent would have to do. After studying this, one will be able to sit for a Notary Signing Agent exam in order to be qualified as one.

I haven't taken my NSA exam yet, but have started the NNA course on line and decided to take their book and read it on a plane so that I would not have to find the time at another point. That worked perfectly, and I finished the book just before landing on the return trip. It is a really good book, but even though I read it thoroughly and used a highlighter, I don't feel confident that I know exactly what and where will need to be notarized. Hopefully the NNA course will make that more clear. I have also attended two trainings from my state notary organization on becoming a NSA. I highly recommend in-person training as well if it is available to you. Even though I am not feeling completely confident about the process yet, in reality, I think everything will go fine when I actually do it. The book is very thorough and detailed about preparing you for doing it, telling you what supplies you will need, etc.
