the Florida exam is difficult and the failure rate is high. many people take the exam multiple times before passing it. the questions are quite simple to the sample questions in many of the course manuals.
I would say read every question twice as they often use double negatives or provide information not really needed to determine the answer, just mean to confuse.
no harm if you dont pass the exam the first time, just keep at it till you pass.
good luck!

I took the Florida Salesperson exam in 1996 and the broker exam in 2002. The best advice I can give is to purchase one of those (1500 questions) books and study with someone. Have them ask you the questions out loud and review, review, review.

One other note, when you take the actual exam, some of the answers will pop out right away. Answer those first. Then on some others it will be clear that only 2 of the 4 choices will work. Do them next. Then work on the "puzzlers" last. And don't sweat the so called "math". It's only 10% of the test but is usually half of the stress.

Although I have not taken a Florida exam, I agree that on the exam I took, some questions are designed that when you first read them, the answer seems clear, but, one, tiny, itty-bitty little thing is different on the question but unless you're thinking about it, you don't really notice it. Designed to catch 'ya.

I'm not surprised . . . . as you described your situation, this wasn't going to be a frivolous venture for you.

And that usually leads to serious, focused, and clear thinking. People with their backs up against the wall are usually able to perform far better than those who have some kind of comfortable exit strategy.

Congratulations are still in order; I feel good for you !

Thank you very much. The kind words definitely help when the future isn't certain.

I have my first Open House tomorrow with my manager. Ready to get this ball rolling!

Just passed the cal exam in Los Angeles. The test was done on computer. You cannot bring anything into the room with you ( including jewelry, phone, watch, etc). There are moderators that walk the room. The calculator and white board are provided. You get your results upon finishing :-)

@CaliforniaT. A huge congratulations on passing the exams! Moderators roaming around sound better than armed guards being stationed beside each table -- that's one of the comments I read on the first part of the thread.

If it's similar to Virginia's National and State exams, there will be differences in rules/regs or whatever and you just gotta know which belongs to which. Again, those 'gotcha' tiny itty-bitty little change in the question - you think it looks right, but, you have to focus on what does the National require versus the State. When I took and studied for my broker's exam (the next level up in Virginia), another agent who had her sales license much longer than I, we went to the classes and "THE" exams together. Turns out, her only form of studying was when she was in class. Me? I studied like crazy, many hours every day. We do the 1.5 hours drive to take the exams. She finishes before me! I'm going through all the questions I KNOW the answers to and then focused on the tricky ones last. I took my time (or nearly the full amount that was allotted - why rush it?). I went out to the waiting room and waited for the results. I passed both exams...the other agent, failed the State one! She was shocked as could be...well, she didn't study and was overly-confident. The person who thinks they have all the answers, who thinks they are extremely confident...those are the ones more bound to fail. Even if all you do I study the National, you'll still need to know the differences in your State's requirements.

For those in California taking the Salesperson Lic exam, i highly suggest buying "Barron's Real Estate Licensing Exams, 10th Edition" i found it real helpful to see study notes on each RE term. Its under $15 bucks. I was able to crack the book open and have a easy read and understood the RE term faster and better. It gives you 4 prep test about 80 questions in the back each and your able to see your weakness and focus mainly on those chapters in your general text books.

And most of all relax, remember its just a test if you believe you will achieve.

I completed 2 different pre-licensing courses and took the exam 3 times. I took it once after I completed the first pre-licensing course, mid-way through the second course and after I finished the second course. I passed the exam on my third attempt.

If anyone has any questions regarding WI, then I'd be happy to answer them.

In CA, you only bring your valid picture ID and completed registration form for the exam date you requested.
They provide a basic calculator, scratch paper, and pencils.

You can leave & return only to use the bathroom in the same area.
