Don't over think the exam. The cram course is nothing but practice tests. They will show you where your weaknesses and strengths are so you can focus your studying. Plan to give yourself about a week between the cram and the state exam. Longer if you have trouble with the cram. Take too long and you will get so nervous you cannot think strait. Stick to a plan, eat well, and sleep well and you will do fine. Good Luck!

Just stick to the cram. Get the materials from the cram and review twice before taking the exam.
Avoid delays.

Wishing you the very best.

Thanks all for the responses. I guess I should clarify...I am currently enrolled in a very reputable real estate school and I currently have about two weeks before I take the state license exam. I plan to attend the cram course. However, I'm looking for a site or book that has practice exams I can take to reinforce what I've learned. Any suggestions on a site that has "free" practice exams would be most helpful. Thanks again to everyone.

In case you don't want to go through all that, know that you can work for a bank (Evolve, Prime Lending, Wells Fargo etc) without a license...and the way our government is working against us, banks will be the only place left to work.
Gone are the days of 3 points yield spread and 1 point origination. Now, loans pay up to 1.25% of the loan amount. It's mostly based on volume, in most cases (the percent paid).
I'm having to do hard money lending to pay the bills and I've recently added financial planning (we're always looking for people interested in learning about money).
I'm not trying to talk you out of it, just letting you know that the grass is not greener on the other side.

Ditto the previous responses. I believe The Red Book is newly revised so be sure to get the latest edition. I also recommend John W Reilly's "The Language of Real Estate", basically a glossary of RE terms. An excellent cross reference that you will be able to use for years to come. Good Luck!

The Georgia Institute of Real Estate, which is located in Sandy Springs has the highest passing ratio of students who take the State exam. Their number is: 404-2524768
They have in-class and online courses. Whichever you do, I highly recommend you take the weekend 'cram/review' course just before you take the exam.
Contact me if you have more questions.
