Good luck! They always make the exams sound MUCH harder than they are if you know your stuff.

the market will continue to be tough for a while, but for organized and diligent people, real estate sales can be a very lucrative and rewarding career. try not to get hung up on the ups & downs of the business...easier once you have enough activity to "keep you a float"

As Yoda would say, "There is no 'try', only 'do' or 'not do'."

Good luck.

Hello all! I am finishing up the classes for Ohio at a local college this week and will be taking the exam after I get the stuff from the school. Is there anyone who took it in Ohio recently that could help me find a good study guide? I found a state of Ohio hondros guide on amazon from 2005 for $3.99. Is that worth it? I know I could look over all my notes but I am just looking for something to help me focus on the main sections. Thanks!

Hi Jake,

Is that guide you found the main documentation for the test? If so it wouldn't hurt to get it, but in my opinion there are a lot more resources out there that will help you pass the test - which is what you're looking for. You've got to study, pass the test and only then you will really begin to learn the real estate industry....But if you are looking for the main sections of the test then I may recommended a more test specific guide (will also be a bit more expensive than 4 bucks...maybe 50-120 or something)...this is what I did and the guide was pretty darn close to the test which made it easy...check online for some accredited online stuff (some offer refunds if you don't pass etc)

Honestly this website www.carealestateexams.com is what made me blow through the california test in about an hr last week.I passed easily.When I went in I was very nervous and didnt think I would pass. I was SO overwhelmed by all the course material...over 1500 pages of material. And I had heard that the dre keeps a "bank" of 3500 questions to ask, how you cant cheat by looking at a neighbors test cuz everyone has a different test etc... while searching for study guides to help me I stumbled on this website.For $25 you can download 450 questions.I downloaded, printed them all out and studied them 2 days before the test. When I took the test it seemed like all the answers on the 450 exam prep were on the test! That was the best $25 I ever spent.When you study for the exam this is all you need! Oh, by the way I was very surprised that out of the 150 questions on the exam, there were only 2 math questions. There was NOTHING on townships, figuring out the sq ft in a section etc....

Wow ,I took the test in SD and you feel like a criminal! ALL belongings go on one common table, even water bottles.THEY provide scrappaper, oencils and calculators. We were warned about cheating and how we could be fined up to 10,000.Only one person at a time was allowed to go to the bathroom.Your license had to be on your desk at all time;all scrap aper had to be turned in with your name on it; they had 3 people constantly walking around in circles.....no gum chewing was allowed either(I was glad about that rule!),although I did notice one person who kept chewing gum anyway......I am surprised we were allowed to wear jackets,I thought they might ask us to strip down to our birthday suits and put all clothes on the common table.

Ya, I hated going into the smelly government building in downtown San Diego to deal with it and the licensing stuff. Do they still have the tests there or do they finally use a third party company?

It was pretty much the same way in Arizona. All you could take in the room was your drivers license and a calculator everything else had to go in a locker. They made you turn your pockets inside out. When you sit at the desk they ask if you are right or left handed. If you are right handed they tell you to leave your license on the desk at all times on the left side.If you have a question or need to go to the bath room you have to raise your hand and wait until someone comes in the room to get you.

Took the test with a woman who wasn't aloud to bring her bag into the office, not even the waiting room. She had been dropped off didn't have a car to stash her pocketbook. Not quite sure what she ended up doing.

I took it recently and passed it first time (i was finished in less than 60 minutes). If you study and actually UNDERSTAND the material, you will fly through this exam like no other. I actually found it to be one of the easiest exams i've taken to date but maybe it is because I prepared for it. I didn't study HARD, I studied SMART.

The thing I struggle with on exams now is that I have been licensed in GA, FL and CA.

I always get messed up on the stupid things like what has to be on a brokers sign outside his shop since its different from state to state. but I have found that the definitions and law pretty much 99% carries over from state to state. And the math really never changes. You know they are gonna ask you a question about capilization rate, something about measurements, and try to trick you into confusing Effective Gross Income with NOI.

I'm taking the FL exam friday. I passed the course exam easily but the teacher taught to the test. My study partner and I are finding a lot of material that wasn't covered in our course so though I don't feel I know it all - Like tenant law and how to figure out millage for example...

I feel it's worth the $32 to find out if i know enough to pass...

My broker I will be working with says the course exam is Designed for you to pass and. The state exam is designed for you to fail.

Thoughts?
