    Actually you can skip the review questions by pressing the "magic" Next button. I called it magic because it doesn't really exist. But the AHIP software acts like it's there. You can't click on it with the mouse but you can press [Enter] after you've gotten to it from a previous slide. So to skip all of the review questions for a module hit the [Tab] key until the Next button is highlighted. Then press [Enter] a few dozen times. It will skip through everything. Even the review questions without answering them. If you just hold the [Enter] key down without pressing it each time it may hang.

    I don't recommend this for new people. But if you've taken it before and feel confident that you don't need to take the time for the review questions in one or more modules you can skip them.

    I agree with what you posted about the exam being a bit harder this year. I also made a 92.

    I wish all carriers would start going to this model -- and I think more will start. My point isn't because AHIP is necessarily difficult, although some questions can be, but just because the whole slimy, unethical, money-grabbing scam test is set up. $175 (or $125) for each agent (talk about a mafia racket), and then if you fail 3 times, most carriers keep your book of business, essentially permanently. I mean, anyone that is okay with that needs their head examined. Passing AHIP doesn't mean you're gonna be this superstar all-knowing agent. Hell, a lot of the questions don't even pertain to any plans available in my area.

    This is a really important point. This year's test is unlike any other years. It's VERY strange, and a solid chunk of the questions are VERY confusing, could easily have two answers, or are worded in a deliberate way to completely confuse the agents -- which I find personally unethical....especially for a business that preaches about ethics. Ask me a question and there should be ONE CLEAR CUT ANSWER. On a few of them, there literally isn't enough information to accurately answer. I just narrowed it down to two and took a shot in the dark. When your income/business/livelihood is on the line, I'm sorry, but that is BEYOND unacceptable.

    U get it. Some have their head in the sand. The FMOs I hear are pushing for change. I doubt Todd King gives a rip but hey, there are some that dont goose step and make a difference.

    What good does complaining do?? Who do I complain to? How often should I complain? Once per hour? Every 10 minutes?
    PCBI, while you have free time on your hands to complain, many of us don't. I learned a long time ago complaining falls on deaf ears. No one or 1000 of us is going to make AHIP go away. I bend over and take it.
