Use common sense first and foremost. You will get 10 questions right if you were to walk in today and take the test, simply using common sense. Knowing your schooling will get you 50 points easy. Now, comes the tricky part. You need to get 15 more right. I think anyone that gives half a darn can get a 60. You will probably look at about 40 questions and think "where in the ____ was this in the school material!?!?!" - Don't panic. Use your head, they will try and trick you but make educated guesses using the information you obtained in school and you will get it.
Now, going back to the schooling thing. If you know what they taught, you get 50, if you KNOW THE BOOK, you can pass the test with flying colors.

Don't read too much into the questions. Go thru and answer all the ones you know first, then go back to the hard ones. Skipping thru to the end sometimes helps you answer others you passed up.
Then once you pass, forget all that completely non- real world, irrelevant info and actually learn about selling real estate and how to making money doing it!

I Studied ONLY the Real Estate Exam Manual for Sales Associates and Brokers 37th Editions by Linda Crawford. I did all 600+ practice questions dozens of times for about a week. The questions that I missed several times I would look up and take note. I honestly think that the math questions in the Exam Manual were 10times Harder then the ACTUAL math questions on the state exam. I took the test yesterday for the 1st time and passed.... The Exam Manual was instrumental in my success with the exam.
