Take the final exam online, or do it on paper in the presence of a monitor. If taken online, your exam results are posted immediately. To order paper exams, email

1.3 Read, Prep and Pass.   back to top
You will most likely pass the State Exam on the first try if you follow these steps:

  • Study the entire reading material for all your courses, one course at a time.
  • Complete the quizzes for each course until you are answering at least 80% correctly without looking up the answers in the reading material.
  • Work to pass the final exam with at least a 75%. (You only need a 60% to pass and receive a Certificate of Completion.) If you do not achieve 75% correct, we suggest you speed read the material again, redo the quizzes looking up the questions you don't understand and retake the exam until you correctly answer 75%.
  • After completing the courses and applying for and receiving a date to take the State Exam, take the simulated State Exams online and extensively study the Prep Book for at least 7 days before the exam.
  • Then take the State Exam. You will likely pass on the first try.

Student testimonials

I just want to say thank you for putting together an excellent group of Broker courses. In addition to the individual study courses, I bought the California Real Estate Broker Exam Prep Book (22nd Edition) several weeks ago and have been studying the material and taking the practice exams. Yesterday, I took my Broker Exam in San Diego and passed! I could not have done this without the Prep Book. I will definitely recommend your courses to anyone interested in pursuing a Real Estate career. Thanks again!
