    • National Association of Mortgage Fiduciaries Jillayne Schlicke Section 1 Module 1.1 Exam prep basics: If you understand the purpose of each law, you are on your way to selecting the best answer on a multiple choice exam. There will be two obvious wrong answers. If you know the purpose of the law, you will be able to spot these. Of the two that remain, one will be a little bit better than the other. Exam writers do not write trick questions. The language of the test questions look tricky because you are being tested on law and most lay people are not use to reading law on a daily basis. This is the only fair way to deliver a 50-state exam. 4

    • National Association of Mortgage Fiduciaries Jillayne Schlicke Section 10 Module 10.1 Ethics Law Minimum moral standard “Have to” Ethics When there’s no clear statement in the law telling us what to do. “Ought, should.” 12
    • National Association of Mortgage Fiduciaries Jillayne Schlicke Section 10 Module 10.2 Ethics Different sources of moral authority Religion We can’t use religion to solve ethical dilemmas when holding a professional role because there are thousands of different religions in the world. Which one would we us? Intuition Intuition can sometimes steer us in the wrong direction Emotion “If I can’t sleep at night it’s not ethical.” If the only reason we’re choosing to do/not do something is out of fear, that’s a pretty low standard of motivation 13
    • National Association of Mortgage Fiduciaries Jillayne Schlicke Section 10 Module 10.2 Ethics Different sources of moral authority Written codes of ethics There is no source of moral authority over LOs other than the law. What written codes of ethics that do exist are voluntary and not mandatory.
