    Flash24- Have you taken the real estate prep course?

    if so TAKE GOOD NOTES, AND STUDY THE MATERIAL. I am an agent in NJ and the best advice I can give is focus on material as is, READ THE BOOK (if you got one). If the exam is anything like NJ's they may attempt to confuse you with ambigous language and unnecessary info. A good portion of the people I took prep course with were simply not good test takers and their anxiety is what caused them to fail.

    GOOD LUCK! Keep us posted on your progress

    Re: Real Estate Exam

    Take as many computer based practice exams as you can. You will find that the format of the practice tests is nearly identical to the real thing. Having that practice will make you less anxious when you're in front of the real thing. And you may just see some of the same questions on the real thing, too.

    Yup, I sent in my transcript last week and I got the letter from Sacramento saying I'm ready to go.

    Thanks for all the advice guys.. I really appreciate it

    I also bought a practice test book, I will read my RE principles book and take good notes.

    I'm not a Realtor.

    But any profession with state license requirements has standardized tests these days. And most have Continuing Ed requirements in addition, so you never quite get away from the computer based tests after passing the initial license exams.

    Depends on what state you are in. I would think most are standard to get a certaion amount of education (class) hours in before you go sit for the test.

    Word to Flash - If you took a course to meet the education requirements you should be ready to go. I got mine for a tri-state area (MD,VA & DC), they aren’t that hard. In the old days we didn't get to bring in calculators and we had to know how to qualify people, the concentration isn’t as much stressed on the test in those areas as they used to be. You got that advantage.

    I know the test here concentrate on the types of brokerages, representation, and ethics - than you have the state law which if you really look at it- it's common sence stuff. Those practice exams give you a good feel for how you will do, so if you taken them enough times you should be fine. GOOD LUCK!!
