How difficult is the California Real Estate Exam?I will be taking my pre-licensing courses (as required by the state of California) very soon as administered to me by the California Academy of Real Estate. I ordered their home-study materials a week or so back and have been studying since, but not in a very conventional way. The materials included 6 CD's that I had confirmed as standalone material (they don't require you to read the book as you listen) and I've been listening to those over and over at work every night. I've also begun to make flash cards out of the vocabulary terms in the glossary at the back of each of the books and have been prepping with those as well. I haven't even touched the books outside of the glossaries yet though, which brings me to my question: can I get by on the exams using just those 2 things? David Calhoun is a wonderful instructor and does a great job of breaking down the terminology and concepts of real estate on the CD's and the vocab seems extremely comprehensive. I'm sure the books have some information that would be helpful outside of what I've already learned, but scanning through each of those 500+ page books for a few paragraphs of extra info seems almost superfluous. I'm normally a very good test taker but I didn't want to leave something this important to chance, and I doubt this exam is easy, even with the mere 60% required to pass. Any thoughts?
