Did anyone take Real Estate License Classes from Kaplan. Is Kaplan really good? Do I need other books also to pass the test or Kaplan is enough?

I didn't take any from Kaplan, but the junior colleges in my area offer online Real Estate courses, so you can do the work at your own pace and get college credits.

You will need quite a few books which are normally supplied by the trainer. There is a lot to learn when just starting out in this business. You will also have continuing education later on as well as training once you pass the test.

I took it many years ago. Pay attention but I think it is a good course

Cindy is right, for California, I can't remember who I went through over 16yrs ago, but since then I've taken CE classes through Kaplan, Allied, The CE Shop, I like CE Shop.

Most recently for renewing my Nevada License (because I still do short sales in NV, mostly for California investors) I had to use a cross between CE Shop & Kaplan because of rules about taking "same courses" as used in the most previous licensing period.

I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for answers after mine.

I have taken courses at Kaplan, and yes, they prepare you for the text. You might also want to look at Allied...used them for my broker exam.

I used Kaplan to get my original license and go back to them for each renewal.

I am taking the real estate on demand course now and I am extremely happy with the process. The online instructors that you will be watching as they discuss the material is similar to setting in a classroom anyway. I much rather enjoy this way of learning because you can pause and rewind and all that good stuff. Key to this being a success is simply having discipline to go through it on your own. good luck to anyone taking the test soon.
