just stay a way from Californialicense.com , they operate from their house , Virtually no Customer service , they will answer you the first time to get you registered and charge you the fees , after that you will never have any question about your courses answered ,regretfully I found out the hard way ,make your research for different one , good luck

Executive Programs! It is all online for study and testing. There are books delivered for those who need them. I just passed my Broker's test using them. Take the weekend seminar in Oakland the week before your test. Mini Lush will make it easier for you to pass. http://www.eprealestateschool.com/ is their website address.

Congratulations on your decision about becoming an Agent. However, I would strongly encourage you to attend a Real Estate School as opposed to studying at home. Oftentimes, people tend to think you just need a license to sell. Real Estate is a Profession not just a past-time. So, you need more than that. license. You need knowledge and understanding. There are a lot of legal expectancies that cannot be clarified by reading a textbook. The Real Estate exam does not include all scenarios and variances. Not only do you want to be able to list a property or sell a property, you want to be a source of information to your clients and other Realtors. You can't get that thru a textbook. Classrooms discussions and instructor support are so beneficial. Plus, it is a great opportunity to build your Network. I would hope you would re-consider.

As I responded earlier I support Anthony Schools and University Programs for licensing.

While you can go as fast as you want, please note that the DRE requires that you spend a minimum of 2 weeks in each correspondence course. You may be able to complete the course before that, but the school is not permitted to provide your completion certificate until the 2 week period has elapsed.

If you need to take 3 courses, for example, it will take 6 weeks before you can receive all certificates.

My favorite school is Chamberlin Real Estate School http://(www.reschool.com). They provide textbooks and you can complete the course online.

I used proeducate.com. They are not in every state, but they are in a great many. Check them out. Their prices are great. Their program was easy to operate in.

I have used both Allied and Lumbleau. Both programs have online courses that you can take from the convenience of your own home. Allied has a more hands-on approach in that if you have questions, they have a number of people who can readily help you answer them and tend to your needs after you have purchased the online classes. Lumbleau seems to be smaller, run by one or two people, so your experience will be much more hands off. It will take a day or two to get answers to your questions. But if you don't foresee needing any additional help besides studying on your own, Lumbleau is the more affordable option when comparing the two. Best of luck studying!

I have used University Programs and found them to be very efficient.
