More than half of the people who take the Florida real estate sales associate and broker license exams fail it the first time. The reason for this high rate of failure on the statewide level is because of a lack of preparation by students.
That’s not to say that Florida students are especially lazy, it’s more that their online and in-person pre-license courses aren’t covering the content that they will see on exam day. In fact, most online products have no relationship to the Florida specific real estate exams. Most are preparatory for a National exam taken in other states, but not Florida. However, with LarsonEd’s Exam Tutor you’ll get exam focused practice that prepares you for success on the Florida Real Estate Sales Associate or Broker Exam.
Included with the LarsonEd Exam Tutor are two 100-question sample exams with immediate feedback, and more than 1000 sample questions all reverse-engineered by our test-preparation experts to replicate the content found on the Florida state exam.
In order to learn the information necessary to pass the state exam, you need access to hundreds of sample questions, immediate feedback, and explanations covering the content you’ll see on test day. That’s exactly what you’ll get with LarsonEd’s Real Estate Exam Tutor available here http://www.larsoned.com/realestate/licensing/exam-preparation-courses/state-exam-tutor2/ for $89.

Then, when it’s time to take the exams, remember these 5 tips for getting a passing score.
1. Take your time.
You have three and a half hours to answer the questions, which means there is no need to rush. Just take a deep breath and trust your preparation.
2. Read all the darn questions…2 times.
It’s too easy to skip over key words in the question. Our brain has this nasty habit of filling in the the blanks of sentences when we haven’t even seen every word. For example, did you notice the repeated word “the” in the last sentence? Give yourself a chance of getting the questions right by reading them each 2 times.
3. Read all the darn answers…2 times.
Before choosing an answer – even if you are 100% positive it’s right – read through all the choices. It may be that you have prematurely selected a response that is correct, but there could be another answer that is more correct. If you fail to read through all the answers there’s a chance you may mark the wrong one.
4. Longer is better.
If you come to a question that has you completely stumped, usually the longest choice is the most likely to be correct. This is not a hard rule of thumb, but rather an indicator to go off of when you don’t have any idea what the answer could be.
5. Treat each multiple choice question as 4 true-false questions.
Each multiple choice question will have 4 answers, each of which you should regard as a true-false question. This will help you ensure that you aren’t missing any details when responding to each question.
With these tips and the Larson Exam Tutor, you are sure to be prepared to pass your Florida Sales Associate or Broker Real Estate License Exam.
