The Florida Real Estate Exam, Analyzing The Questions Correctly

     Many people tell me that all four of the choices for the questions on the Florida real estate exam seem correct or all four choices seem incorrect.  You need to learn to analyze the question choices on the Florida real estate exam.  Is the choice true or false. 

     A student called me yesterday to ask about a question that he encountered on the Florida real estate exam.  The question was about the fair housing act.  When students explain questions to me, I never know if they have the question right or close to right.  The student tells me that the question states," Mr. Real Estate Agent shows a house to an African American prospect in an African American neighborhood in central Florida. The prospect asks a question.   The real estate agent  can assume...........? "

     A. The prospect wants to be in an African American neighborhood.
     B. The prospect does not want to be in a African American neighborhood.
     C. The prospect is concerned about the ethnicity of the neighborhood.
     D.  The prospect likes the architectural style of the house.  

     It is important that you read the Florida real estate exam question carefully.  It is important that you understand the question.  The question is:  what can the real estate agent assume?  The exam question stated that the prospect asked a question.  We don't know what that question was.   Our question is what can the salesman assume.

     A. If the real estate salesman assumes that the prospect wants to be in an African American neighborhood, he is steering.  This is a violation of the Fair Housing Act. This choice is wrong.
     B.  If the real estate agent assumes that the prospect does not want to be in an African American neighborhood, he is steering.  This is a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1968.  This choice is wrong.
     C.  If the real estate salesman assumes the prospect is concerned about the ethnicity of the neighborhood, he is steering.  This is a violation of Fair Housing Act.  This choice is wrong.
     D. It would be OK for the real estate salesman to assume that the prospect likes the architectural style of the house.  This is not a violation of any law.  This is the best answer.

     As we read this and other questions we wish we could ask questions like," What did the prospect ask?".  We wish we could but we can't.  A smart test taker will not add or subtract to the questions on the Florida real estate exam.  Everything on the Florida real estate exam depends on the choices.  You can't write in an answer.  You have to go with the choices. It is not like one answer is dead right and three are dead wrong.  Which is the best answer?

     As you read the question, make sure you understand the question.  Carefully read the choices and ask yourself,"Is this choice true or false?".  If it is false, it can not be the right answer. 

     The more you know, the easier it is to discern the wrong answers.  If you would like to practice before you go spend $31.50 taking your Florida real Estate exam at Pearson Vue in central Florida, take the practice test on my website at www.climerrealestateschool.com .  This is free, easy, effective and painless.  If you are taking the Florida real estate exam soon, why would you pass on this.  If you are taking the Florida real estate exam for the second time, be sure to know all the stuff that is on that sheet Pearson Vue gave you about frequently  missed questions.  If you are taking the Florida real estate exam soon, watch all eleven of my free real estate math videos on You Tube.  My user name is Climer School.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-J6kid1FTs&feature=c4-overview&list=UUyBcLU3Ccx-ZxAyemcXWd1w   A lady called me recently and told me she had failed the Florida real estate exam three times.  She made a 73,72, and a 74.  The best she had done was on the math was six out of ten.  She said she watched my free math videos.  She said she only watched the ones if the problems I was teaching looked familiar from the Florida real estate exam.  The link above is
