Michael Abra…, Other/Just Looking in Chicago, IL

Out on a limb! Passed the Illinois state portion but failed the national portion. What was your preparation?

Asked by Michael Abraham, Chicago, IL Thu Jan 15, 2009

I successfully completed the required real estate course. The course was Real Estate Fundamentals and the only book that was required for class was called, "Modern Real Estate Practice in Illinois". Having no question whether or not that book was sufficient enough, I was told that after passing the course, I would have no problem passing the state exam. Now, am I just that oblivious or is there another course or book needed to pass the NATIONAL portion of the exam? If any agent here can help me out as to what book/class/preparation he/she has taken to pass both portions, I would be most appreciative! Thank you kindly for any advice or feedback!

Michael - Real estate licenses are issued state by state and there is no such thing as a national real estate license. Try checking out the link below from the Illinois Dept of Financial and Professional Regulation. It is the FAQ page about all things related to licensing in Illinois.
Once you have passed your state test try to affiliate with a real estate company committed to mentoring new agents. There is MUCH to learn beyond the fundamentals required to pass a state test! Best of luck!
