I'm hoping to move to Alaska. I was thinking that I could fly in for my deployments and rent a car and ladder. I was told that I could likely have most of my expenses paid off from my taxes. Do you think that would actually work Does anyone do anything like that I'm trying to figure out if there is a economical way that makes sense for me to live in Alaska and fly out for deployments. :No

1 Replies and 2442 Views Adjusters License Prep- study the textbook vs. online class?  2442  1 Started by  James1010 Well I bought and read the textbook 'Florida Adjusters Study Manual 27th Edition' and it was a total waste of time and money. The book is out of date and structured and written for someone pursuing their Insurance Agent/Underwriters license. The incredibly confusing writing style of the author made it impossible to successfully understand the material well enough to pass the 100 test questions in the back of the book. Additionally, everything I'm reading online confirms that the Florida State ex... :No
