I want to thank your online school for preparing me for the DRE real estate exam. I could not have passed the exam without your online program. I enjoyed the videos and the all of the online content.

Angie P.

I finished in under two hours and passed on the first try. I would not have passed without the strategies I learned using the Online Video Crash Course through first tuesday.

Cynthia E.

Great experience and I was very prepared and felt comfortable with my preparation for the test.

Ron E.

on State Exam Training Package

The language in the state exam was the same as the online video crash course. I was pleasantly surprised at how close and spot on the video crash course was to the exam.

Jackie D.
Future DRE Sales Agent or Broker
on State Exam Training Package

The test taking tactics were a nice surprise and the "office hours" supplements covered really interesting topics that broke down complicated concepts which helped me understand and retain them.

Gabriela M.

on State Exam Training Package

The videos really helped me. As a retired professor, I thought the teacher did a great job on his lectures. He showed you how to take the exam by ruling out the two obvious incorrect answers that do not work and concentrating on the two remaining. His techniques helped me.
