Welcome to the exciting world of Customs! Customs Broker is a licensed profession. Passing the Customs Broker Examination is a prerequisite for individual’s Customs Broker license. Passing is not easy, and many exam takers do not pass. The primary challenge lies not in the difficulty of questions themselves, but in the amount of time customs examiners allocate to examinees. My interaction with students with little or no customs experience shows that everyone is able to understand some of the most difficult questions. This means it is not the difficulty of questions, but rather the amount of time provided, which leads many not to pass. The problem, therefore, lies in time management! Fortunately, this can be corrected. But such correction requires dedication and practice. Many questions you will see on exam are similar to those questions asked in previous exams. Some are even identical. Examinee who sees a familiar question on the exam is likely to spend less time to answering it. This means more time being left to answer more difficult and less familiar questions, resulting in a greater likelihood of success.
Exercise Book is designed to do just that: to help examinees pass the Customs Broker Exam. The approach is very simple. We take the very questions that examiners have asked before, and provide rationale for their answers. The rationale - or reasoning - cause examinees to revisit topics tested while providing the structure and organization. The structure helps to build a framework that can be applied to variety of questions. During the exam, even if examinee does not recall the structure, the familiarity with the question would help. Exercise Book consists of: Table of Contents; Table of Questions; Table of Topics; Approach to Answering Questions; Practice Exam Questions; and Practice Exam Answers. Exercise Book is supplemented with video discussions and supplemental reading on the internet, through Web Supplements at LawCustoms.com/eb.
