The real issue is that getting a license is only the very first step in being a good Realtor for your client. California contract and advisories (both state level and local level) are getting more complicated by day.
The most important thing after you get the license is to find a reputable real estate company to be affiliated to. They will be able to provide you with good training on contracts, marketing (both your home and yourself), negotiation, and much more. They will also be able to give you a good idea about the time commitment and expense associated with a successful real estate career.
The benefit of which is immerse in helping your clients in buying and selling their properties. . .
It's impossible fail their courses and it's really cheap. You don't even have to purchase the books. They are not needed since they essentially give you all the answers to the tests.
Now, all that said, you're not going to learn a whole lot this way. If you actually want to learn, then go to a class that you actually attend (a referral for one in your area with an interesting teacher helps).
good luck and welcome to real estate
