Any info out there for the NC real estate exam STATE section only?

Asked by Hannah Morris, Charlotte, NC Tue Aug 28, 2012

I just took this test a couple weeks ago and passed the national but did not pass the state. I can't seem to find any information on the state section only- To figure out what exactly I need to study... The Commission gives a "study guide" but it's mainly the License Law, Commission Rules, Agency Law and closing statements. I feel there is more I'll be tested on but this is all I have to go by... any help?

Carla Pennington’s answer
I'm licensed in Texas, but wonder if my same efforts would apply in NC - I took a million online practice exams before I took the real thing. Well, maybe not a million, but I think the package I took had about 90 practice exams and I took them all. I found that every question on the real tests were on the practice exams.

Good luck with your next try - I'm sure you'll ace it!

Good afternoon, Hannah:
The North Carolina Real Estate Manual, published by the Real Estate Commission, is a
comprehensive reference addressing real estate law and brokerage practice, the North Carolina
Real Estate License Law and Commission rules. Being thoroughly familiar with this manual is the best preparation not only for the test, but for practice. The closing statement is also very important. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up. You could also take/retake a state license course refresher. For the most helpful answer, please say thanks with a best answer click.

I read your answer to Hannah and I only have one question.
when you take a 75 hr realestate course to prepare you for you license exam, do they actually teach you everything in the 1,021 pages of the real estate manual or just some chapters?

I would also recommend getting the Question/Answer CD. It helped me tremendously. You need to commit a lot of data to memory to pass the NC Exam and the CD will help you do just that! Good Luck Hannah - you can do it! Kathleen

First, congratulations for passing the national test! That was one of the hardest things I've ever done! What they've given you is true. What I learned about the NC test was that it was broad but not very deep. I studied to find out the DIFFERENCES in NC law and national law. That made it a lot easier. Other than that - a lot of the questions were the same as the national test. The trick was recognizing when the question was one of those NC only questions. If you know the national stuff you're in good shape - learn what's different then test again. I hope this helps.

Many RE schools offer refresher or test preparation courses. These classes focus on typical areas of real estate law that are emphasized on the examination and are usually only a day or two in length. My recommendation is to study as much as possible and then take a refresher just prior to taking your license examination.

Best wishes,

i took the same test recently and passed the state portion, but not the national portion. any ideas on help that would steer me in the right direction for studying. AMP (the testing center) game me a breakdown on what i missed and the different topics the test covers and how many questions of each topic, so that is helpful, but i am struggling most on agency relationships. is there any where i can go to find test questions for agency relationships or where i can find information to make it more clear. thanks in advance for any help. i know this post is two years old, but maybe i can get some help.

Hello Hannah, Can you share your experience after retaking the exam? Did you purchase the CD and where did you purchase it from?

Thank you

Hannah - I agree that the NC Exam Guide CD is very helpful in studying for the state portion of the exam. Superior School of Real Estate offers an exam boot camp course taught by Bill Gallagher; however we just completed the course and don't have another one scheduled at this time so that isn't going to be of immediate help to you. We will have an online version of boot camp in a month or so. If you need immediate help, I would recommend:

NC Exam Guide CD
Hiking the Real Estate Trail (Audio CD's)
Thoroughly review the state section problem topics posted at…

Also, some of our instructors offer tutoring. Let me know if I can help and good luck!

Looking for a STATE ONLY study guide in book format. Licensed as a Broker in FL and need take state only portion and CANNOT find ANY materials on studying...very frustrating!

Did you use the Exam Guide CD to help you study? It's extremely helpful, with practice questions, quizzes, build your own tests, etc. It does a good job explaining each answer as well.

Flag Fri Oct 2, 2015
What is this cd and where can I get one? I am trying to take the state portion as well and not sure where I can get any study info. There is no material on only the state portion. Bill Gallagher does offer a study session but it is also $300. Unfortunately, I cannot afford that. Please tell me this is not my only option.

Where can I get this cd? I am also licensed in FL and looking to take only the state portion of exam. It is next to impossible to find any material for just the state. What is this cd and where can I get one?
Flag Tue Feb 18, 2014
Ryan, can you please tell me where I can buy this Exam Guide CD? I see there are quite a few audio CD's on the market and I just want to make sure I choose the most relevant and helpful CD for the NC test. Thanks!
