seventy passed. That is a 48% pass ratio. Fifty two per cent of the first time test takers that took the Florida real estate exam were disappointed.

All of these applicants paid $31.50 for the privilege and Eight hundred and seventy five passed. That is a 33% pass rate for repeat test takers. This information is from the DBPR at www.myfloridalicense.com. Sixty seven per cent of the repeat test takers failed.
At The Climer School, we know how discouraging information like that can be. It doesn't have to be though. At The Climer School of Real Estate, we know what you need to know to pass the Florida real estate exam and we prepare out students better than any other school. This is what we teach in our basic sixty hour real estate course. We teach our students how to pass the Florida real estate exam.
We teach this in our Florida Pre-License Sales sixty hour real estate class. The we teach it even more intensely in the two day Florida real estate exam review that we teach twice per month. Some people call this the "cram course". We teach this class to help our students pass the Florida real estate exam.
If you are interested in getting a Florida real estate license, you have to take the basic sixty hour class from some real estate school. Before you enroll in a real estate school, check the school out. Read their Google reviews. Ask some rookie Realtors where they went to real estate school. Ask if they would recommend their school.
Almost universally, students that took an online real estate course from a real estate school that specializes in all fifty states wish they had taken their real estate course from a Florida real estate school to prepare for the Florida real estate exam. This makes too much sense. This Florida real estate exam is no joke.
At Climer School of Real Estate, we use a textbook written by Linda Crawford, a professor at the University of Florida. Our instructors sell or have sold real estate in Florida. We don't teach the laws of the other forty nine states. It is the Florida real estate exam. We teach people to pass the Florida real estate exam.
If you are soon taking the Florida real estate exam, get yourself a copy of the "Candidate's Handbook", a booklet issued free by the DBPR to anyone that will read it. It has a breakdown of what is on the Florida real estate exam. This will tell you what to study. If you want a copy of this wonderful booklet, go to www.climerrealestateschool.com. The problem that many of the 52% that are failing the Florida real restate exam are having is that they are studying th wrong stuff. They are studying stuff that is not on the Florida real estate exam. Even worse, they are studying information that is wrong.
It is no secret what is on the Florida real estate exam. Well, maybe it is a secret but the folks at Climer School of Real Estate know the secret. Our instructors tell you exactly what is on the Florida real estate exam. We do not teach a bunch of stuff that is not on the Florida exam.
There are lots of ways to study. Many real estate sales associate license applicants don't discover that they need to study until they fail the Florida real estate exam or read an article such as this one. Once they discover that they need to study, it doesn't take long to find "Climer School" on You Tube. We have free real estate math videos that explain the real estate math that is on the Florida real estate exam. When you go to You Tube, our user name is ClimerSchool . There is a playlist of real estate math videos. There is no math that is on the Florida real estate exam that is not on these videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZb_k4kq9h0 . Here is a link to one of those free videos. The Florida real estate exam is officially ten per cent math. There are other questions that the DBPR doesn't call math that is math. For instance, computing acres or square feet in a legal description is not considered math. If you can do the math on the Florida real estate exam, you odds of passing increase.
At Climer School of Real Estate, we teach a two day state exam review. The only purpose of this intense class is to prepare students to pass the Florida real estate exam. Half of these students are our students and half of the students come from other real estate schools. Half of these students have already taken the Florida real estate exam once or twice. If you wonder how we know what is on the Florida real estate exam, these students tell us. Some of them have gone back to Pearson Vue and paid the $35 to review their exam after they failed. This is where Pearson Vue allows you to look at your exam that you failed. They give you the right answers. This is red hot ‘Intel’.
In this two day state exam review class, we use Linda Crawford's "Exam Manual for Sales Associates and Brokers" as the textbook. This is the most wonderful book. It is an outline of the textbook that we use in the sixty hour real estate class. It has 4 one hundred question practice tests in the back. Many people don't take our two day class. They just buy the "Exam Manual". You cannot find a better study aid than the exam manual. If you would like to purchase a copy, call Pam at 407 822 3926.
We realize that many people cannot attend this two day live class. We put it on audio and video. You can access by going to our website at www.climerrealestateschool.com .
Another great way to study is to create your own flashcards. Take 3x5 cards and write ‘What law prohibits price fixing?’ on the front, and ‘Sherman Clayton Anti Trust Act’ on the back. Make about five hundred of these. This is a great way to study.
Do not waste your time and your $31.50 taking the Florida real estate exam without preparing. If you want to find out if you are ready, go to Climer School of Real Estate’s website and take our free practice exam. If we can do anything else to help you pass, contact us.
