    Default Advice needed from some of you Real Estate Agents...

    A little about myself. Im 27 years old and im looking to become a real estate agent in Boston, Ma. I finished my real estate courses and took the state exam. The problem is i failed it both times i took it. Now ive been told that most people fail it the first few times. Are there any websites i can go on to take practice quizes? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this and im sure ill get great advice from all you professional agents, thanks!

    Did you teach yourself or take an in class course? I suggest taking an in class course. I didn't pass the first time, but that's because I read the training books by myself. When I took the same course in class, it was 10x easier to understand and I passed.

    Don't worry about not passing, the real estate exam is just a test. I'm not sure about the Ma area but try to find a class that can give you lots of practice tests. I found those to be the most useful since a lot of the practice questions are the same as the actual exam.

    I have my real estate license in MA. If you goto your local barnes and noble they have practice exam books and CD ROMs you can use to quiz yourself. I found that a lot of the questions in the practice tests were very similar to the ones on the actual exam. I also took a course at a local college before taking the exam as a prep course, it helped a lot. Hope this is atleast a little helpful. Good luck on your next attempt.

    Are you failing your school test or state tests?

    edit.

    I failed my school test quite a few times before i actually passed. My problem was that I finished school and waited about a month before i took the school test.

    State exam I passed 1 of 2 tests on the first try, it took me another two times to pass the second test, I was within 1-3 points of passing each time i failed..... it sucked.

    Best advice is study, study, study and outline. Make yourself several outlines if you can. I had 3 different outlines that I could recite to you almost word for word after. Also if your school has free sample questions and study material use it.

    Also there were some chapters that I was sketchy on, I made some time and sat in those same classes for a second time to make sure i got a better understanding.

    I went to a Real Estate school we have here in Mass and finished all the classes. We didnt really have an exam, all we had to do was just show up and take notes. After i got my certificate i waited a little over a month and failed the state exam. I studied as best as i could and yet i failed again, even though i did much better. You guys have made it a little easier for me with all the advice and i hope when i take it ill pass this time cause i really cant stand going to the test site anymore. Plus $50 everytime isnt really cheap.

    Slimmj0k3r: i guess i just have to do a better job of outlining cause i tried that but i know what your saying about just studying and memorizing. Thanks again, i really appreciate it. Are you an agent in jersey or az? Im looking to move to az eventually after a little bit of real estate experience here.

    Hopefully if i pass ill update you guys with the good news.

    I would suggest that you do the practice tests a few times more, your objective is only to pass the test. At this time, simply learn the materials and study guides present, study guide literally read and re-read it. once look over the areas where you miss questions.
