Help, The Florida Real Estate Exam is Costing Me Too Much

     It costs $31.50 to take the Florida real estate exam from Pearson Vue.  If you pass the first time, your total investment is $31.50.  If you pass on your tenth attempt, You total investment is $315.  That is a lot to pay to pass the Florida real estate exam.  What is the difference between the test taker that passes on the first try and the applicant that passes on the tenth attempt? 

     The difference is the quantity and the quality of the applicant's study.  The pass ratio for the Florida real estate exam is fifty fifty for first time takers and 33% for repeat test takers.  Do not underestimate the Florida real estate exam.   Here is a link regarding the pass fail ratio. 

     It may not be the student's fault if they are studying the wrong stuff.  Many people take their real estate course online from a real estate school in another state.  If they study material from California, the Florida laws are probably different.  We do not have community property in Florida.  The person that takes care of your business affairs when you are recently deceased is not called an executor in Florida.  To pass the Florida real estate exam, you must be studying Florida material.  

     The quantity of your studying is another matter.  When you fail the Florida real estate exam, Pearson Vue gives you a breakdown of what is on the exam and how you did on each area.  Use this as a study aid.  Study a lot.  Overstudy.  Study day and night.  Study with your classmates.  Study alone.  Watch Climer School of Real Estate 's free real estate math videos on You Tube.   Here is a link to one of the twelve free videos on You Tube.  It is very hard to pass the Florida real estate exam if you can not do the math.

     Make yourself 500 flash cards.  Put the question on one side of a 3x5 card and the answer on the other side.  This is a great , easy, cheap way to study.  Study, study, study.  Listen to my online review class several times.  Cancel your social life until you pass the Florida real estate exam and you have your Florida real estate license.  Do not pay more than $31.50 to pass your Florida real estate exam.
