Practical Rural Appraisal: Work Problems Using the New Methodology

This course is designed to be practical and is intended to assist both the experienced appraiser and the beginning appraiser.  The material is divided into sections that provide a brief discussion of the basic principles underlying each of the three approaches to value, highest and best use and other pertinent material.  Most of the classroom time will be devoted to working through real-world rural based appraisal problems and short case studies with time allotted to allow students to work closely with the instructor on specific concepts and principles to solidify their understanding.  A financial calculator is a necessity to work through most of the work problems.
