What content is on the real estate exam?

I’m assuming by the time you are reading this, you have already taken your real estate licensure courses so you should have an overall glimpse of what topics you will find on your real estate exam.

So once you are qualified to take the real estate exam it’s time to hammer home what you will find on the test.

Now, you can go to any State’s real estate exam commission and they will have an “official” breakdown of what % of the exam is each topic.

Here at Real Estate Exam Ninja, we don’t want vague, we want to nail this baby down to a 3% margin of error so we know exactly what to study and how much time to dedicate to each section.

To accomplish this, we survey all of our students after they pass their real estate exam so we know not only what is on the exam but we also know how much of each section is on the exam.

Here is our latest breakdown as of 2021

To accomplish this, we survey all of our students after they pass their real estate exam so we know not only what is on the exam but we also know how much of each section is on the exam.

Study Resources For The Real Estate Exam

When we put this guide together, our goal was not to sell you our real estate exam study guide, it was to aggregate enough resources that you can study for free. However, if you are one of those people who prefer convenience, you can sign up below.

Below we have aggregated a list of free study resources in hopes that you can pass your practice real estate exam on your first try (although that is not the norm). If you know of a free resource that we can add to this list, please e-mail us and let us know.

  1. Nelnet Solutions provides a free 300 page real estate practice PDF that can be accessed here. We have reviewed the material and found it to be slightly better than average content that will help you study for your real estate exam.

  2. Quizlet is a flashcard website that has many real estate practice exam questions that are 100% free. This link is one of our favorites and we can vouch for the material.

  3. Dummies.com has a small guide which they call a “cheat sheet”. It is basically some terminology that you will 100% see on the real estate exam. 

  4. Pearson Vue Practice Exam – This one is not free on the link I am providing but if you search the internet you can find it. For legal purposes, I can not provide a link. We really think this content is fantastic.

  5. PSI Real Estate Practice Exam – Once again, this one is not free but if you know how to search google you can find it really easy.

Tests.com has a free practice test with 41 questions that you can use to practice as well. We don’t like the exam material in this one as much but it can still be fantastic review and practice for your real estate test.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Study For The Real Estate Exam 

The real estate exam is no different than any other exam you have taken in your life. Let’s not over complicate things. You need to learn the material in your class. It’s that simple. Now the advantage we have is we know the percentage breakdown of topics so you can study smarter and not spend 80% of your time on a section that is worth 5% of the test score. Let’s work smarter and not harder.

 

Is The Real Estate Licensing Exam Multiple Choice 

Yes. Every State’s exam is multiple choice. They have been discussing moving a portion of the national exam to fill in the blank so we do expect the exam to get harder in the future.

 

How Long Should I Study For The Real Estate Exam 

This is a loaded question (and rightfully so) as it depends on the person, their background and level of intellect. Some of our students studied over 20 hours and did not pass while others indicated that they put in less than 3 hours. With our program, you will pass after you can complete all the modules. The average length of time needed is 1 hour per day for 20 days.

 

Is A Real Estate License Worth Getting?

What are your goals? Surprisingly, the answer is often “No”. We have hundreds of emails every year asking us this question. If your goal is just to learn about real estate, you can do that for free on Google and YouTube. We only recommend getting your real estate license if your goal is to sell real estate.
