Hawaii MLO Exam Info

Specific Hawaii MLO Exam Content: There is no such thing as a "standard" mortgage loan originator Exam. All states have varied content from each other. This is why we spend so much time preparing the individual content for the Hawaii MLO exam keeping up with the changes as they occur in Hawaii.

MLO Practice Exams are organized into categories: When studying for your Hawaii MLO exam it is important to know your areas of weakness.

Each Category is graded separately to make it easier to identify and focus on your areas of weakness. Also included are master MLO Exams which incorporate all of the different categories into one test to help prepare you for your Hawaii MLO Exam.
