Tips for Passing Your Florida Real Estate Exam the First Time
Passing your Florida Real Estate Sales Associate Exam is one of the most crucial steps to getting your real estate license. If things don’t go according to plan and you don’t pass the real estate exam the first time you take it, don’t panic. We are here for you!
Here are four tips to help you pass your real estate exam the first time you take it:
1. Be Confident and Prepared
Don’t underestimate the Florida Real Estate Sales Associate Exam! The exam is complex, and the pass rate for first-time takers is around 50% to 60%. The number one reason for not passing the first time is not taking enough time to study the material. Keep in mind that there is precise information on this exam, and very little is common sense. While none of the material in the Course is challenging to understand, the sheer volume makes the material hard to retain and apply without diligent study. Get to know your mathematical formulas, as they are the key to studying for all of the math sections. Remember: regardless of the specific exam question, the formula remains the same. Focusing your studies on particular areas, like real estate math formulas or other areas you find challenging, will boost your confidence and make passing your real estate exam much less overwhelming.
2. Test Your Knowledge
Practice examinations include questions that are representative of the actual exam. By taking a variety of practice exams beforehand, you’ll know what to expect and be able to see where your strengths and weaknesses are, so you can concentrate on improving those areas before you take the real thing. If you’re finding certain areas especially difficult, reach out to your instructor for guidance.
3. Plan Your Exam Day
The day before your scheduled exam, make sure you have everything you need prepared and gathered. On the day of your exam, make sure you’re well-rested and adequately nourished when you arrive at your appointed exam time. Do not go into the exam tired or hungry. It’s not recommended that you attempt any practice testing on the day of your actual exam; last-minute cramming can lead you to feel anxious and stressed. Instead, get a good night’s rest the night before and concentrate on being calm and staying focused on the material in front of you.
4. Take Your Time
You’ll have three-and-a-half hours to take the real estate exam. Take the time to read every word of every question on your exam carefully. While this may seem obvious, remember that in timed multiple-choice exams, misreading or skimming over one word can make the difference between a right or wrong answer.
