About Annotated Exam History Compilations

History of customs broker examinations from April 1997 through April 2016 is available in two volumes.   The value of the books lies in annotations that are attributed to questions, as well as, a convenient single source document for the past customs broker exam questions. As prospective customs broker examinees prepare for exam by practicing questions from the past, many encounter questions that are outdated and/or no longer applicable.  Books apply labels to those questions that are no longer applicable, allowing examinees to focus on questions that are current. Additionally, books distinguish questions that stand out because they continuously show up on the customs broker exams.

Book also guide examinees to other study materials that explore background and reasoning behind questions in more detail.  Materials include Textbook and Exercise Book. More information about these study companions is available at their dedicated webpages.

Exam History Compilations Overview

Applicable Labels Include:

DIFFICULT LOGIC: Denotes question where logical parallels between question and answer provided by customs examiners are difficult to establish.

DISCUSSED IN EXERCISE BOOK: Denotes question that is addressed in the Exercise Book, which offers logical explanations (reasoning) as to why the particular answer choice is correct.

ASSIGNED IN TEXTBOOK: Denotes that the question has been discussed in the Textbook.  The question is usually assigned in the Web Supplement portion of the Textbook’s relevant chapter. The question can also form a part of Textbook’s substantive discussion.

INCORRECT CITATION: Denotes error in citation (usually to law or regulation) provided by customs examiners in the answer key for a given question. May also denote error in the answer choice, where legal citation was correct.

MULTIPLE ANSWER QUESTION: Denotes the question with more than one correct answer choice. This label also pertains to questions that received credit(s) for all of the answers, unless these answer choices are contradictory (see REMOVED).

OUTDATED: Denotes question or answer choices that became outdated due to changes in law, facts, or Customs (CBP) practice.  Classification questions where one or more of the HTSUS numbers in the answer choice are no longer valid are marked as outdated, notwithstanding the validity of other HTSUS numbers.  This is done because many classification questions require inquiry into several HTSUS codes (e.g. General Rule of Interpretation 3 analysis), which cannot be effectively made with some of the HTSUS numbers being no longer valid. Additionally, process of elimination is difficult with outdated HTSUS numbers.

REMOVED: Denotes question that was removed from the initial examination. This label also applies to questions that are marked as “x” or “no correct answer” by customs examiners. If customs examiners grant credit for all answers, and answer choices are contradictory, then this label is applied also.

REPEATED QUESTION: Denotes question that appeared in previous examinations.  The goal of this label is to alert prospective examinees that customs examiners place higher value on the question, implying its likelihood of re-appearance on the future exams.
