Graduates undertaking the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) often find that, in addition to the general information provided by the RICS, guidance is needed on specific areas of their work as general practice surveyors.
How to Pass the APC: Essential Advice for General Practice Surveyors has been built around the needs of general practice surveyors, and guides you through the APC process in line with your own competencies - including valuation, marketing, landlord and tenant, estate management, rating, and planning and development work, together with more specialist areas. Accessible and easy to use this book gives you comprehensive coverage to the fundamental elements of the APC. Detailed consideration is given to the subject of the critical analysis, including a real life example. It takes into account your individual circumstances, and how this affects assessors' questioning on the day of the interview.
How to Pass the APC: Essential Advice for General Practice Surveyors highlights the essentials, showing you how to approach the presentation and interview. A bank of examples of real APC questions, together with illustrative responses demonstrate how the interview process works.
