They have been around since 1937, and the oldest real estate school in California. They had the cheapest exam passing course when comparing the other schools listed. Video streaming is included with over 41 hours! I'm a visual learner and this helped out considerably.
They also use Walter Huber's books(ETC Textbooks). They sell them half the price of Amazon!
I'm in California and I passed the Broker's Exam on my first try.
I had good success with Allied when I took my broker test. I suggest you review your own personal learning style. Some people do well on line, and others are better in a classroom environment.
I took all my classes at the local college because I learned so much more instead of just passing the test.
One of the features Allied offers are practice quizzes. I found these very beneficial. I also down loaded the CA Dept. of RE law book and when I took the quizzes I crossed referenced to the Law. I passed on first attempt.
If you haven't made a decision regarding where you are going to hang your license, check into your local Keller Williams Realty office, they offer a lot of training and it may be possible that they have an in-house class for you. Tell them Terri Vellios sent you ;-)
All the best it can be an exciting and rewarding career depending on how much you feed it.
Have an amazing day!
I used http://www.RealEstateExpress.com to obtain my CA Broker License in 2013. I loved the experience. If you're interested in reading about my experience, and exactly what I did to pass the exam the first time you can read about it on my website at http://www.pjhrealty.com.
Ive used Anthony, Pro Schools, etc etc. All good places but onlineed was the very best for internet courses and support.
Course was easy to follow and I passed my state exam on my first try. Florida is rumoured to have one of the hardest state exams.
I am looking forward to a career in real estate! Thanks again!
RE Trainers located in Anaheim CA. Are you taking your real estate test soon? RE Trainers offers a weekend crash course that is very effective the weekend before your exam.
Another thing I really appreciated about them what their devotion and the time they spent holding my hand and answering every question and/or concern I had through the entire process. They're not just some sales and marketing company hocking their wares. They actually have experienced and very well trained RE professionals on board who can answer any question you can ask.

I would suggest thinking about how you like to learn...do you do best in a classroom setting where you can ask questions easily? Or do you prefer to learn in your own time and pace? It will come down to a live class or online study...
Good luck. I've enjoyed being in Real Estate!
Sorry, but I think there are far too many so-called RE professionals who just 'passed a test' and don't know squat about their profession. One of the reasons our RE market is in such a pathetic position today is because there are just too many fly-by-night, mediocre people in the frey.
Sorry but wee need to put some real teeth back in this industry.
That's the problem with our profession. There's too many fly-by-nights flying by and not enough meat and potatoes. Learn something Dammit and make a difference in this profession. It will only make you successful in the end.
