Help the community by answering this question:


My advice would be to take all the practice exams you can get your hands on--the best are usually the ones that you are given as part of your course because they have questions taken directly from the test--or very close to the questions on the test. Best of luck!

So John, please tell us whether you were successful in obtaining your salespersons license or not. Which program did you end up using? What company are you working at?

Once again I must digress. I wouldn't hesitate to contact, She's an ole pro and has been around the RE biz for decades. She's not in the sales dept. She's in Student Services and WOW, does she ever provide unbelievable service.

She held my hand through the entire study process for my broker's exam which I passed on the first try. I also used Allied for my RE Salesperson's test and passed it on the first try. Allied has the best service in the biz.

Hello John,
I see that agents have given you some great advice as far as study material providers. One helpful thing that i found is to save all the math problems until the end of the testing on test day and do them all at once, you will find that your mind will hook up with it more smoothly.
Good Luck

Try real estate trainers

If you want to pass the salesperson exam and possibly the Broker exam when the time comes, attend Real Estate Trainers Crash Course. Google it. It is worth the time and money. They guarantee that you will pass or money back. I was successful in passing both exams on the first attempt. The sooner you pass, the sooner you can get out there and start working. Call me directly if you have Q's.

I'm a little confused. You've already got a test date and you haven't taken your required courses yet?

You may want to check this out first. It's right from the DRE official website:

Requirements to Apply for a Real Estate Salesperson License

To obtain a real estate salesperson license, you must first qualify for and pass a written examination. Those who pass the examination are provided a license application which must be submitted to and approved by the DRE.

This license is required of individuals who conduct licensed real estate activities as described in the Real Estate Law under the supervision of a licensed broker. A license may also be obtained by a person who does not immediately intend to be employed by a broker. However, a salesperson without an employing broker may not perform acts requiring a real estate license.

Successful completion of three college-level courses is required to qualify for a real estate salesperson examination:

Real Estate Principles, and
Real Estate Practice, and
One course from the following list:

Real Estate Appraisal
Property Management
Real Estate Finance
Real Estate Economics
Legal Aspects of Real Estate
Real Estate Office Administration
General Accounting
Business Law
Mortgage Loan Brokering and Lending
Computer Applications in Real Estate
Common Interest Developments

If you haven't completed these courses you won't be able to even take the test. You really should contact Laura King at Allied RE school in Irvine ASAP. She can walk you through the steps you need to go through. I'd definitely be thinking about rescheduling the test if you have taken the prerequisite courses yet. Good luck.

Go to a weekend refresher, they usually have the most missed questions to review. Once you pass, and you will pass, immediately follow that with your first continuing education series so that you pass that without fear. Good Luck.

Thanks.. Should I purchase the study guide from
to study for my state exam next month? Or any other alternative

The agent sales license is relatively simple, I don't think you should have a problem with it if you picked up a book and read up on the test questions.

If you are worried there are several 'schools' that offer online courses, can google them (kaplan is one)

Hope this helps.

Review your material often to get a real understanding.
Read the questions on the test thoroughly before answering. It only takes one word to totally change the question.
Good luck to you! :)

I don't know if that's legit or not, but the best thing you can do is take the practice exams provided with your course as many of those are actual questions on the exam. If you are concerned there are also live crash courses to help you pass the test. As I recall the salesperson exam was pretty easy.
