The Florida Real Estate Exam Pass Fail Results For May 2013

  The Department of Business and Professional Regulation released the pass fail results for the month of May 2013 yesterday. One thousand eight hundred and seventy five applicants paid $31.50 to attempt the Florida real estate sales associates exam for the first time in May.   Seven hundred and ninety passed.  One thousand and eighty five were shocked and dismayed to discover that they had failed.

     I say shocked and dismayed because many students do not know that the pass rate for the Florida real estate exam has always been pretty bleak.  Forty two per cent pass rate is certainly bleak.  That is better than the 27% pass rate in April of 2013. 

     You would think that the two thousand two hundred and twenty five retakers would do better.  This is not the case.  Seven hundred and sixteen of these folks were happy.  One thousand five hundred and nine were disappointed again.  That is 32% pass rate for the retakers.  All of these people paid $31.50 to Pearson Vue to attempt the Florida real estate exam.

     Florida real estate broker applicants did a little better.  Their pass rate for first time takers was 59% and 35% for retakers. 

     Why is the pass rate for the Florida real estate exam so dismal?  There are several reasons but they all boil down to the student is unprepared.

     Many real estate school instructors don't tell their students that the Florida real estate exam is tough.  The teacher knows what is on his exam.  He teaches his students to pass his exam.  The students passes that exam at the real estate school.  He makes a pretty good grade.  He thinks he is ready.  WHAM! The student takes the Florida real estate exam.  He thinks he has been run over by a train when he leaves the Pearson Vue test center with a 52% grade on his Florida real estate exam. 

     Another problem is that students are studying the wrong material.  If a student took their basic FREC 1 course from an online real estate school from some other state, who knows what they are learning?  Any one that took their basic course from a real estate school in another state is at an extreme disadvantage.  That student needs to learn what is on the Florida real estate exam. 

     One of the easiest, least expensive ways to do that is to buy Linda Crawford's "Exam Manual".  At Climer School of Real Estate, we use this book to teach our two day Florida real estate exam review course. 

     If you have taken the Florida real estate test once and were not even close to passing, this two day class would certainly be some time well spent for you.  In this class, I teach everything that you need to know to pass the Florida real estate exam.  We use Linda Crawford's "Exam Manual" in this class. 

     Many people want to attend this class but can not schedule the time.  We understand that at Climer School of Real Estate.  We put the entire course on audio CDs.  If you would like to attend this class, call Kathy at 407 822 3926.  If you want to learn what is on the Florida real estate exam, there is  no better way to learn this. 

     If you want to know if you are ready for the Florida real estate exam. go to my website and take the one hundred question practice test that I have there.  Our website is . If you don't pass this test, you are not ready for the BIG one.  Ours is free.  The Florida real estate exam costs $31.50 per try.

     Another thing we have done to help you pass the Florida real estate exam is we have put ten real estate math videos on You Tube.  This is free.  It is easy.  Our user name is Climer School.  Watch all ten of the videos.  It is very difficult to pass the Florida real estate exam if you are not getting all ten of the math questions right. I can not understand why anyone would go "try" the Florida real estate exam without watching all ten of these videos.  If you don't know how to compute deed stamps or compute per cent of profit or compute interest, you better be learning before you pay your $31.50.  Why would you go pay your money if you don't know how to do the three lot question or the storage bin problem?  They are all there on You Tube. 

     A big problem that many people have before their first attempt is underestimating the Florida real estate exam.  After you have failed it once, there is no excuse for underestimating this test. 

     You better be studying.  You better be studying the right stuff.  If you are still studying what is on the California test, change direction.  If Climer School of Real Estate can help you pass the next time, call us at 407 822 3926 or .
