Florida Real Estate Exam, Dismal Pass Rate For March 2013

     In Febuary 2013, The Department of Business and Professional Regulation made major changes to the Florida real estate exam given by Pearson Vue.  In March 2013, one thousand one hundred and real estate sales associates applicants took the Florida real estate exam for the first time.  Three hundred and seven of those applicants passed.  That is a pass rate of twenty seven per cent.  Eight hundred and thirty nine people went home disappointed.  All of these people paid $31.50 for the experience. 

     One thousand eight hundred and two people attempted the Florida real estate exam for the second,third, fourth of fifth time.  Pearson Vue got $31.50 from all of them.  Four hundred and twenty eight passed.  That is a twenty four per cent pass rate. 

     What does this mean?  This means if you went to a top notch real estate school and you study diligently, you have a good chance of passing.  If you went to a real estate school that really did not do a good job of preparing you for the Florida real estate exam, you are in trouble.  If you cheated on your on line test by using your notes while you took the final exam, you can not do that on the Florida real estate exam.  If you have been rather lackadalsical with your studying since you passed your real estate class, don't plan on passing on your first try.

     Many people take their online real estate school from a real estate school that is not in Florida.  They learn a bunch of stuff that would help if they were taking some sort of national test.  Florida does not use a national test.  We only have the Florida real estate exam.  This is one of the toughest real estate exams in the USA.  You need to be certain you are studying Florida real estate material.

    At Climer School of Real Estate, we use,as our textbook, Linda Crawford's, "Principles and Practices of Real Estate".  There is no better textbook available.  We also encourage our students to buy Linda's "Exam Manual" For more detail, watch this video   This is an essential study aid for passing the Florida  real estae exam the first time.  It cost $31.50 every time you take the Florida real estate exam.  Here is a interesting study aid.  If you fail the Florida real estate test, you can pay a few dollars and go review the test that you failed.  If you decide to do this, let me give you a little tip.  Put a legal pad on the seat of the car.  As soon as you get out of the review write down as many of the questions as you can remember.  Obviously, they won't let you take notes.

     At Climer School of Real Estate, most of our students watch all nine of the real estate math videos.  It is free.  It is on You Tube.  Our user name is Climer School.  There are four of these videos where I am wearing a red shirt. This is me teaching chapter fourteen out of Linda Crawford's tesxtbook.  The videos where I am wearing the Hawaiian shirt is the homework from the textbook.  If you are attending a real estate school where they use Linda's textbook, follow along. 

       If you are taking the test soon, take time to look at the break down of what is on the Florida real estate exam that is in the "Florida Candidates Handbook".  If you don't have the handbook, call Kathy at 407 822 3926.  She will email it to you for free. 

     If you want to know if you are ready for the Florida real estate exam, take my FREE practice exam on my website at .  You can practice or my free test or you can pay $31.50 to go practice on Pearson Vue's.  Do mine first.   Contact us if we can help.
